Taylor named Troup County Solicitor General

On Thursday, Gov. Brian P. Kemp appointed Sandra H. Taylor to serve as Troup County Solicitor General. 

The position was vacated following Nina Markette Baker’s appointment to the Superior Court of the Coweta Judicial Circuit.

“As Chief Assistant Solicitor and former private practice attorney, Sandra Taylor has always shown great integrity, skill, and dedication to the citizens of her community,” Kemp said. “I look forward to Sandra continuing her laudable service to Troup County as solicitor general.”

Taylor is currently the chief assistant solicitor general of Troup County and has served in that role since 2013. For 24 years, Taylor led her own private practice in LaGrange, focusing on criminal, civil and commercial litigation representing both plaintiffs and defendants. Taylor earned her bachelor’s degree from Emory University and law degree from the Walter F. Georgia School of Law at Mercer University.

Since 2004, Taylor has served as a board member of the Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice, and she currently serves as the board’s vice-chairman. 

Taylor is the board chairman of the Calumet Center for Healing and Attachment and an active member in the Rotary Club of LaGrange. Taylor is also a member of the First Baptist Church on the Square in LaGrange.
