Attorney Taylor M. Hart joined Martinez & Ruby, LLP, in 2017. He practices criminal defense exclusively, and handles a wide variety of cases, including those involving allegations of domestic violence, drug possession and related offenses, burglary, theft, OWI, sexual assault, and homicide. He also handles cases involving allegations against juveniles.
Attorney Hart has quickly become a skilled and accomplished trial attorney. His most recent trial resulted in an acquittal on a charge of first-degree intentional homicide, the most serious crime under Wisconsin law. Taylor was featured on WKOW 27 News after that victory. His second most recent trial resulted in acquittals on all counts in a case involving charges of first-degree sexual assault of a child, incest, child enticement, and exposing genitals to a child. Attorney Hart’s client in that case was facing a mandatory minimum sentence of at least 25 years in prison.
Taylor is a native of California and moved to Wisconsin to attend law school at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. While in law school, he represented clients incarcerated at Wisconsin’s Oxford federal prison and also worked for the State Public Defender’s Office in Baraboo. He graduated magna cum laude from California State University San Marcos with a degree in Criminology and Justice Studies.
