Taylor S. Joeckel



Taylor cares about people: She’s an auxiliary board member at The Family Place – a vital area resource for victims of domestic abuse. She’s been active in fundraising efforts for the Genesis Women’s Shelter. She served as a valued member of the Texas Young Lawyers Association board of directors. (The TYLA helps advance the legal profession’s role in serving the public.) But first and foremost, Taylor cares about her clients.

“Divorce is not just an ending; done right, a divorce can also be the start of new life,” says Taylor. “Many family law firms are so focused on the mechanics of divorce, they often lose sight of the opportunities a ‘good’ divorce can offer their clients. That’s what attracted me to Armstrong Law. That’s who we are; that’s what we do. We use our skills, training, and experience to help put each of the people we serve on a path to a better, brighter future.”

And Taylor’s skills are impressive. She earned her Doctor of Jurisprudence, cum laude, from the Texas Tech University School of Law, and has a BA in English, with a minor in Communication Studies, from the University of Alabama. (Any attorney will tell you that communication is the heart of family law.) After graduation from law school, Taylor joined an area family law firm where she quickly became a rising star. We’re so glad her own path led her here to Armstrong Law.
