Bennett A. Taylor
I represent community associations in covenant enforcement actions, collection of delinquent assessments and as general counsel, and appear regularly in State court and Federal bankruptcy court actions.
When working as an extern for the Honorable James M. Johnson on the Washington State Supreme Court, I drafted the bench memorandum where my recommendation contributed to a 9-0 decision (City of Seattle v. Klein 166 P. 3d 1149 (2007))
I drafted a symposium comparing Article I of the Washington State and United States Constitution for circulation among Superior Court judges.
Before my practice focused almost exclusively on community associations, I was one of the top five bankruptcy filers in the state of Washington.

Why I practice law
I practice law because I enjoy learning, problem-solving, and using my skills to help people with the legal issues they face.
When I’m not practicing law
Outside of legal practice, I like to try new restaurants, play golf, travel, and spend time with my wife Lindsay and our cat Peanut.
