Taylor Cawley

Taylor provides his clients with an effective juxtaposition of calm reasoning and passionate advocacy.

Which of your cases makes you proudest of the result?

A successful result depends on diligent work and keen observation – traits of the profession. To prepare for a difficult motion, I reviewed hundreds of documents. I was rewarded for my diligence when I identified a single, seemingly innocuous sentence that solidified our client’s position.

What do you think the most important factor is in resolving a file?

Whether reviewing a file, communicating with counsel, or strategizing with a client, the importance of attention to detail cannot be overstated. Managing details but always appreciating the big picture, ensures practical, sensible solutions.

What’s the most valuable lesson that your professional experience has taught you?

While our clients reasonably expect strong, effective advocacy, it is equally important to be courteous and respectful with everyone we encounter. After all, our professionalism often is a factor in successful resolutions.


Taylor completed his articles with Marta Watson LLP and continued with the firm as an associate following his call to the Bar in Ontario in 2019.

He practises insurance defence litigation and has represented clients in the Superior Court of Justice and Small Claims Court.

Taylor graduated with both a J.D. from the University of Ottawa and a J.D. from Michigan State University College of Law, where he was very active and successful in several moot competitions. His passion for advocacy has carried over into his practice at Marta Watson LLP.

He is a member of the Law Society of Ontario, the Canadian Bar Association, the Ontario Bar Association, and The Advocates’ Society.

Taylor’s interests include reading, sports, board games, and his dog Reggie.
