Whitney Taylor was born and raised in Kingsport, TN and graduated from Dobyns-Bennett High School. While in High School, Whitney played football, soccer, and wrestled. Playing sports is something that Whitney loved to do and still enjoys today. “It was during my school and sports days that I made lasting relationships with people in the area who are my clients today.” After high school Whitney went on to play soccer and golf for Mars Hill University in North Carolina before heading to Mississippi College School of Law in Jackson, Mississippi.
“Even before I went to undergraduate school, I knew I wanted to return to practice law with my father. It is important to me that my family has grass roots in this area and specifically in the legal profession. Whitney's father, Attorney Cary Taylor founded The Taylor Law Office in the late seventies and, along with his wife Paula, built a practice that thrives today. “My parents taught me that honesty, respect, and hard work are the foundation of becoming a great lawyer but more importantly a great person.”
After graduating law school, Whitney immediately returned to Kingsport to work with his father for several years before his father's untimely passing. Whitney married the love of his life, Allona, and continues to live in Kingsport with his two adorable children. Whitney does admit that private practice is not for everyone, but with the help of his long time secretary, Stephanie Wagner, his office is able to meet all client demands with a personal approach.
