Taylor White Returns After Judicial Clerkship for the Honorable Kristi H. Johnson
FormanWatkins is pleased to welcome Taylor White back to the Firm after completing a judicial clerkship for the Honorable Kristi H. Johnson of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi. Taylor describes her clerkship as an “invaluable, unique experience,” stating, “clerking for Judge Johnson during her first year on the federal bench was an opportunity I will value for the rest of my career. I was not only able to hone my writing and intensive research skills, but I also returned to FormanWatkins with the confidence of having been mentored by someone as bright as Judge Johnson.”
Before joining FormanWatkins, Taylor studied American History and French at the University of Southern Mississippi Honors College and attended law school at Mississippi College. She graduated summa cum laude among the top 5% of her class. After graduation, Taylor spent two years assisting in the representation of corporate clients, including an international oil and gas company, in commercial litigation and contract disputes across multiple jurisdictions. She has also represented a national retailer against Fair Credit Reporting Act and Telephone Consumer Protection Act claims in five states; defended a general contractor in multi-plaintiff litigation involving an Alabama interstate reconstruction project; and defended an international farm equipment manufacturer in catastrophic injury and wrongful death claims.
In her free time, Taylor enjoys painting, visiting her family in Hattiesburg, and spending time with her husband Chris, daughter Elliott, and their two dogs. Taylor finds fulfillment in developing close relationships and working as a team with her colleagues. As a result, clients can always expect a personal and dedicated experience when working with her.
