Founded on Experience & Expertise
Hardy B. Traylor established his
own law firm in 1976 after years working in liability claims for a major
insurance company. Mr. Traylor used this experience to advantage for his
clients and set the firm policy that we must protect the clients’ rights
because no one else will.
Reginald P. Morris joined his practice with Hardy B.
Traylor in 1985 to strengthen the trial capability of the firm. Mr. Morris
had extensive experience in personal injury trial work and established the
firm policy that TM&E is prepared to litigate large claims and small
claims, when necessary, to obtain justice for our clients.
Traylor, Montgomery & Elliott's team of lawyers and
paralegals are prepared to fight for your justice and reclaim what was yours
before the personal injury accident. Traylor, Montgomery & Elliott's
lead attorneys, Elwood V. Elliott and John W. Montgomery, Jr, continue the
firm's commitment to experience and expertise.
