Taylor Law Practice Areas:

Navigating the legal territory and emotional minefields ever present when a relationship ends is a task few persons can manage alone. Whether you are a husband, wife, domestic partner, grandparent, father, mother, or a minor, you need accurate information and effective representation to achieve an appropriate result.

I strive to make a difficult situation less traumatic. I endeavor to avoid escalating already tense circumstances. Working together, you can weather the crisis.



Lynnea represents her client’s interests in all aspects of divorce or legal separation, including the equitable distribution of marital property, child custody and visitation, child support, alimony, and post-decree modification proceedings. She handles the full spectrum of marriage dissolution, from mediating self represented parties to an assertive and effective representation in hi-conflict emotional situations.

  • Divorce
  • Child Support
  • Child Custody/Visitation
  • Alimony/Spousal Support
  • Property Division
  • Post-Decree Modification
  • Prenuptial Agreements
  • Postnuptial Agreements

Child Custody, Visitation and Support

Child custody and child support orders are not always the product of a divorce action. Children of unwed parents also deserve well thought out custody and visitation plans along with adequate financial support for their well being.

Lynnea works with custody evaluators and mental health professionals where needed to help ensure that custody decisions and visitation plans are decided in the best interests of the children, client, and all family members involved. She is a strong advocate in high-conflict cases, and handles re-locations and other post-decree modification.

Pre and Post Nuptial Agreements

Prenuptial agreements and post-nuptial agreements can be effective tools for deciding important issues in the event of a death of a spouse or dissolution of a marriage. Such agreements are especially helpful when the spouses enter marriage with different economic status, or where one or both partners have been married before and experienced a bitter divorce. Deciding issues ahead of time such as property division and spousal support can help to avoid rancorous or lengthy disputes in the future, but it is important that they be done correctly initially in order to have their proper effect. Lynnea assists in the negotiating and drafting of prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements, as well as enforcing or attacking them in court where necessary.

Estate and Family Planning

“Estate planning” isn't just for the wealthy and “family planning” isn't just for people with children. Because it is impossible to know what the future holds, it is important to make plans and provide instruction to loved ones. All individuals, couples and families are different, particularly when blended families are concerned.

Lynnea works to determine the best way to plan for the each client's future, through wills, family trusts, guardianship appointments, health care proxies/living wills and/or powers of attorney.

  • Wills
  • Family Trusts
  • Healthcare Proxies
  • Living Wills
  • Guardianship Appointments
  • Legal Powers of Attorney

Property Disputes and Law Use Matters

For most individuals and couples, their property is the largest investment they will ever make. It is where they live, raise their children, spend vacations and ultimately retire. When property disputes arise it is often seen as a threat to one’s financial security. Property disputes can be complex, not only legal issues, but also in the emotions they elicit. Lynnea has experience in managing the legal issues involved in land disputes and works to minimize the emotional toll these matters can have on her clients.

  • Adverse Possession
  • Eminent Domain
  • Boundary Disputes
  • Special Permits
  • Variances
