Jonathan Taylor Pace

Since joining Abraham Watkins in 2018, Taylor has become the first person in the firm’s 70+ year history to be promoted from contract attorney, to junior associate, and then full associate. Taylor’s trial experience has earned him recognition by TopVerdict for securing a position in the 10 largest verdicts in the State of Texas for all of 2021, and also for securing a position in the 10 largest premises liability verdicts in all of the United States for 2021. Taylor was selected for the 2023 edition of SuperLawyers Rising Stars and the 2024 edition of Best Lawyers Ones to Watch.

During law school, Taylor earned the CALI Excellence for the Future Award (given to the law student making the highest grade in a given class) four times, including in copyright law, property II (advanced property), for writing a seminar paper on pharmaceutical patent law and for writing a seminar paper on the constitutional protections of the first amendment on college campuses. Taylor was also a member of the Phi Delta Phi honor society and made the Dean’s Honor List four times. During law school, Taylor clerked at a firm specializing in eminent domain/condemnation and personal injury law. 

Taylor was born and raised in Houston, Texas. He graduated from Memorial High School and later earned his undergraduate degree in Economics at Texas Christian University, where he was voted pledge captain of the Christian fraternity Beta Upsilon Chi, the largest fraternity at TCU. 

Since graduating from law school and passing the bar, Taylor has been with Abraham Watkins, where he has worked on thousands of cases involving clients who suffered the loss of a loved one or were injured themselves. Taylor’s hard work, dedication, and experience through all phases of litigation have helped bring millions to clients in cases involving wrongful deaths, product liability, 18-wheeler accidents, premises liability, catastrophic injuries, electrocutions, and explosions.
