Q&A with Taylor Hunter, associate
Why did you become an attorney? What/who inspired you?
At an early age, my parents instilled in my brothers and I a hard work ethic and the importance of leaving a footprint that is impactful. I knew that I wanted to be a doctor or lawyer, but after I discovered that I had a low tolerance for blood, attorney it was! I also grew up watching the TV show Ally McBeal and Law and Order, and while I knew real life wouldn’t be quite as dramatic, the thought of fighting the good fight with the law was fascinating.
Where are you originally from? Worked before? What brought you to KGR?
I am originally from Greensburg, Indiana, known for their delicious, breaded tenderloins at Storie’s Restaurant and the world-famous tree growing outside the courthouse. I am a life-long Hoosier and attended undergrad at Indiana University and law school at Maurer School of Law. After law school, I worked at Barnes & Thornburg, LLP and focused on employment and labor law. This past year, I decided to join KGR’s Education Team to further pursue my passion in working with various schools with labor and employment matters.
What do you enjoy about your job/the law?
Hands down, the best part of the job is the clients. I have many wonderful clients who truly care about what they do, which makes working with them even more rewarding.
Practice areas at KGR/area of focus right now:
Education Law, Labor Law and Employment Law
Favorite activity outside of work/reasons you love Indy:
Indy has so much to offer. I really enjoy being able to hop on the Monon Trail and bike with friends to dinner and events. There are tons of great restaurants and very talented artists around the city that exhibit amazing artwork and live music. There are also great parks to either hike or just hang out and listen to a podcast. One of my favorite activities is to go to the local farmer’s market on Saturday.
