As Chief Justice, Bryan Taylor will…


Bryan has fought in the courts to defend religious liberty and protect conservative voices from being cancelled on woke college campuses. He also believes that every party to a case, not just one side, is entitled to justice and fair  treatment under law. Bryan will concentrate on bringing more effective training for judges, reducing the cost of litigation, and promoting more trustworthy outcomes in our courts.


Bryan is an adherent of Scalia-style originalism. He believes in interpreting and applying the Constitution and other laws as they were written and intended by the Founders and our elected representatives in the legislative branch. As Chief Justice, Bryan will oppose judicial activism and weaponization of our system of justice, to ensure we remain a government of laws and not of men.


As a former state senator and fiscal conservative, Bryan helped pass major budget reforms that streamlined the executive branch of state government, cut wasteful spending, and ushered in an era of greater accountability for the use of taxpayer dollars. He also sponsored the bill that repealed the legislature’s own pay raise. As Chief Justice, Bryan will ensure every tax dollar allocated to our courts is spent wisely.


As an Iraq veteran and a retired Army Judge Advocate in the Alabama National Guard, Bryan worked on establishing the first veterans treatment courts in Alabama, where veterans who come into contact with the justice system are rehabilitated through substance abuse treatment and other programs to help veterans succeed. As Chief Justice, Bryan will establish Veterans Treatment Courts in all 67 counties.

Meet Bryan

Bryan Taylor is a decorated Iraq War veteran and a retired Army Judge Advocate with 22 years of legal experience across the military, private practice, and public service. 

He is a co-founding partner of the law firm of Bachus, Brom & Taylor, where he concentrates his practice in Constitutional law and appeals, election law, business litigation, and public policy.

In addition to his military and civilian legal experience, Bryan has served as a legal counsel to the Alabama Republican Party and two Republican governors, most recently as Chief Legal Advisor to Governor Kay Ivey.

In 2010, Bryan defeated a powerful 7-term Democrat incumbent to become the first Republican ever elected to the State Senate from the 30th District. As a freshman state senator, Bryan built a strong conservative record.

  • Bryan fought for the sanctity of life and Second Amendment rights.
  • He improved ballot security and election integrity by advancing the photo voter ID bill into law.
  • He led the charge to repeal the legislature’s pay raise.
  • As a fiscal conservative, he fought for balanced budget reforms and sponsored the bill requiring the legislature to repay every dime borrowed from our state’s savings account, the Alabama Trust Fund.
  • Bryan also spearheaded the passage of sweeping ethics reforms, including the bill that made it illegal for public officials in Alabama to take lavish junkets, gifts, and meals from lobbyists.

Bryan is a recipient of the Bronze Star Medal for his combat service in Iraq. And he has held numerous leadership positions in the Alabama National Guard, such as the State’s Chief of Military Justice and Senior State Defense Counsel.

He is a graduate of the University of Alabama and the University of Texas Law School. He considers it his highest priority to teach his three children the same values he learned as an Eagle Scout: Duty to God, Duty to Family, and Duty to Country.

They live in Shelby County, where they attend Double Oak Community Church.​
