About Us

I was born in Smithfield, Virginia, and after graduating high school, I joined the United States Marine Corps. In 1989, I was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 24th Marines in Chicago, where I taught weapons and tactics during Operation Desert Storm.

   

I received my Bachelor’s degree, summa cum laude, in Criminal and Social Justice from Lewis University in Romeoville, Illinois and my Juris Doctorate from The John Marshall Law School in Chicago, where I appeared on the Dean’s List of honor students.  


I am currently a litigation attorney at  Taliaferro Law Group, P.C.and serve as the firm’s founding partner.  I also served as a Sergeant with the Chicago Police Department and have faithfully served for over 23 years. 


I am married to my high school sweetheart, Melissa, for 27 years. Our son Marcus is in his graduate studies at Western Illinois University. Our daughters, Carissa is a senior at Loyola University and Erykah a freshman at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC).
