John brings experience from inside and outside the legal profession. He began his career as a political consultant working on campaigns and communications for both candidates and issue advocacy organizations. He also worked as a licensed real estate associate where he provided service to both residential and commercial clients. After getting married and starting a family, John decided to attend law school at the University of Illinois College of Law where he graduated magna cum laude and was elected by his peers to serve as Executive Editor of the Illinois Law Review, one of the most prestigious law journals in the country. Throughout his law school career John also clerked for a Champaign County Judge and participated in the Domestic Violence and Federal Appellate Defender Clinics.
Upon graduation, John moved to North Texas where he worked as an in-house counsel for a title insurance agency assisting in both real estate and corporate matters. He then moved on to a medium-sized law firm where he served individual and institutional clients.
Today John resides in Keller, Texas with his wife Kathryn and sons J.T., Dean, and Noah. He co-founded Byers & Taylor, PLLC where he ties this experience together to provide a uniquely qualified vantage point that he uses to provide his clients with assistance in the areas of estate planning, probate, real estate, and business organization and governance.
I highly recommend John Byers. He is a man of integrity with an incredible work ethic. He is well versed in the law and we'll do a great job representing you!
