Cumberland-based Taylor English Duma LLP announced the firm’s national recognition in the 2017 edition of Chambers USA, a highly regarded legal directory featuring client-led intelligence on America’s leading lawyers for business. Taylor English was recognized among the top Georgia law firms in five practice areas — environment, intellectual property, labor and employment, litigation and real estate.

Nine of the firm’s attorneys are also ranked as leading practitioners in their respective fields. The complete 2017 guide of Chambers USA is available at

“We are honored to be included among this prestigious list of law firms. To be included in Chambers underscores our commitment to providing efficient, cost-effective and excellent client service,” said Marc Taylor, a founding partner of Taylor English Duma. “While the recognition alone is a great honor, we are even more humbled by our clients who were willing to share their positive attorney-client experience with the Chambers researchers. Their endorsement of us is the most important recognition we can receive.”

 The Taylor English attorneys recognized by Chambers USA in the 2017 guide, along with the practice areas in which they were selected, are – Marc D. Glenn, Real Estate; Vivian Hoard Esq., Tax; Amanda Groover Hyland, Intellectual Property, Up and Coming; Leah J. Knowlton, Environment; Jeffrey R. Kuester, Intellectual Property; Craig K. Pendergrast, Environment; Anthony Polvino, Leisure & Hospitality; Gregory G. Schultz, Real Estate; and Marc A. Taylor, Labor and Employment.
