David J. McTaggart

David J. McTaggart

Since graduating from Baylor Law School 28 years ago, David has practiced law in numerous state and federal courts across Texas.  He has handled complex matters in the areas of premises liability, commercial litigation, personal injury, professional liability, transportation, workers compensation and products liability.  He has tried over 25 cases to verdict and arbitrated several others to a final order.  David has used the skills developed as a trial lawyer to serve as a mediator on multiple occasions.   On weekends, David spends as much time as possible on the golf course with his son.  As a native Wacoan with two degrees from Baylor University, David bleeds green and gold.  During the fall he lives and dies (mostly dies) with his Baylor Bears football team.  Also, after a brief 71-year hiatus between Final Four appearances, David is now more than happy to passionately discuss Baylor’s 2020-21 Men’s National Championship Basketball team.
