Personal Experience

Taylor Gillhamer is an attorney with Lively Law Firm, and her practice focuses on representing clients in removal proceedings, as well as post-removal appeals and motions to reopen. Specifically, Taylor specializes in immigration cases before the Executive Office of Immigration Review and the Board of Immigration Appeals.

Taylor is also a staunch supporter of human rights, particularly as they relate to women, children, and other vulnerable populations. At the University of Oregon School of Law, she specialized in family law, with a focus on domestic violence and the representation of individuals who have experienced abuse at the hands of an intimate partner. During her second summer of law school, she worked as a legal intern for the Legal Aid Society of San Diego’s Pro Bono Department in San Diego, California, where she aided self-represented litigants at court-based legal clinics with domestic violence, elder abuse, civil harassment, eviction, and conservatorship issues.

After graduating at the top of her class from Oregon Law, Taylor worked for three years as a Staff Attorney for the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit in Atlanta, Georgia. Based on her demonstrated skill and expertise, she was placed on the Special Appellate Matters Unit, where she worked on the most complex immigration, habeas, civil, and criminal appeals before the Court.

Taylor understands the complexities of both the legal and personal aspects involved in the immigration context. She strives to take an empathetic and compassionate approach to her cases while also developing the most  effective legal strategy for each of her clients.
