Taylor Ernst is recognized throughout the state as a brain injury trial specialist.  With the recent award of the 2020 CCTLA Trial Lawyer of the Year for a brain injury verdict, Taylor has made it his mission to teach how he approaches brain injury cases to other lawyers.


When defense teams encounter Taylor Ernst, they face more than a attorney – they confront an unparalleled authority on traumatic brain injury litigation. His monumental $63 million verdict against Chevron is but one highlight in a series of meticulous and decisive victories.

His approach, blending rigorous knowledge with vision, marks a profound shift in the litigation landscape. Defense firms know him not just for his wins, but for the unparalleled method through which he achieves them.
