Houston divorce attorney Taylor Imel’s practice focuses on complex property and highly contentious custody cases in Harris, Fort Bend, Montgomery, Galveston, and Brazoria counties. Additionally, she has a wide range of experience related to drafting unique/tailored divorce provisions in Buy-Sell Agreements, including formulas for valuation of the corresponding entity, with “belt-and-suspenders” to premarital and/ or post-marital agreements. Taylor believes these types of agreements create a form of “divorce insurance” – insuring and giving peace-ofmind not only to the client but also to the corresponding entity, new shareholders, or even investors from the instability that can often arise during a divorce.
Taylor is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and she is a frequent speaker and author.
Taylor has been recognized among Houston’s Top Lawyers by H Texas magazine since 2015. She is also a 2018 honoree of Texas Rising Stars by Thomson Reuters, which consists of no more than 2.5% of the attorneys in the State of Texas in over 70 practice areas.
Among Taylor’s many publications, she co-authored “Everything You Need to Know or Do if There is an Entity or Trust in Your Divorce Case”, which was presented at the Texas Bar CLE Marriage Dissolution Institute in 2016.
Taylor attended Wake Forest University in Winston Salem, North Carolina, on a full athletic scholarship where she played on the Women’s Varsity Soccer Team. In Spring 2007, she studied abroad at la Universidad de Salamanca in Salamanca, Spain before earning her B.A. in Spanish and Communication in May 2007. Taylor graduated as a Dean’s Scholarship Recipient from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law in May 2010.
