Attorney Taylor Asen represents people in personal injury cases, including medical malpractice, dangerous drug and medical device, and complex civil litigation matters. Prior to joining Berman & Simmons in 2016, Taylor worked for a law firm in New York City, where he handled a wide range of class-action and mass tort cases.

Taylor’s career in the legal profession began with an interest in fighting tort reform in the late 2000s. As a paralegal, he worked for a New York City firm on a major class-action case against a pharmaceutical company. The experience solidified his goal to earn a law degree and work on behalf of people who have been harmed through no fault of their own.

“The great thing about our country’s legal system is that if you have been harmed, you can stand up in court against the people or corporations that are responsible, no matter how wealthy or powerful they might be,” Asen says. “As lawyers for plaintiffs, we play a key role in that process. We have the resources and the skills to stand up for the little guy.”

A native of Maine, Taylor graduated from George Washington University, and earned a master’s degree at Columbia University. Taylor is a graduate of Yale Law School, where he participated in the Veterans Legal Services Clinic and the LGBT Litigation Project. He was co-chair of the Civil Justice Committee of the Yale Chapter of the American Constitution Society, and served as managing editor of the Yale Human Rights & Development Law Journal. While in law school, he spent his summers working for the Civil Law Reform Unit of the Legal Aid Society and for a plaintiffs’ firm specializing in employment and civil rights litigation.

Taylor is a superb writer and researcher, and is known for his creative approach to lawyering. If there is a new or different way to achieve results for his clients, he will pursue it. Taylor is motivated to stand up for plaintiffs in Maine, and to ensure that businesses and insurance companies are held accountable for the injuries they cause.
