Taylor Romero’s practice focuses on civil litigation and appeals, but Ms. Romero has additional and wide-ranging legal experience in divorce, SAPCR, enforcements, modifications, temporary restraining orders, injunctions, protective orders, breaches of contract, personal injuries, business formation and transactions, contract review and drafting, landlord-tenant disputes, estate planning, and probate.
Upon graduating law school, Ms. Romero turned down an established firm position to return home and build a successful legal practice, which she managed for three years before joining Cain & Skarnulis PLLC. This provided her immediate and significant experience in and out of court, advocating and resolving complex legal issues on behalf of her clients. She has appeared as lead counsel before most district and associate judges in Travis, Williamson, Hays, Caldwell, and Tarrant counties, Texas; the Third Court of Appeals; and on petition for review and amicus curiae letter briefing before the Supreme Court of Texas. Ms. Romero also specializes in jury selection and witness preparation and has been retained by other firms to assist with their preparation for trial.
Ms. Romero graduated summa cum laude from St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas, with a B.A. in English Language Arts and a minor in Education. For two consecutive years, she was an award-winning teacher with the Academy for Global Studies at Austin High School. She then received a full academic scholarship to attend Baylor Law School where she received her Juris Doctorate.
Baylor Law School is known nationally for its emphasis on both the practical application of law and its advocacy program. While at Baylor Law School, Ms. Romero became one of the school’s top advocates, competing on five moot court and mock trial teams; winning regional, state, and national competitions; and earning over six different speaker and evidentiary awards at all levels of competition. These accolades include winning the Stetson National Pretrial Competition and the Texas Young Lawyer’s Association State Moot Court Competition, where Ms. Romero argued before the Supreme Court of Texas. In recognition, Ms. Romero was inducted into the National Order of Barristers for her skill in advocacy.
Ms. Romero graduated from Baylor Law School in 2013, and is licensed to practice law in Texas. She and her husband, Kyle, who is another Baylor lawyer practicing in Austin, live on the east side of Austin with their two dogs. When they are not working, they are outside rock climbing, backpacking, swimming, or traveling.
