Meet Fred

Fred D. Taylor is a native of the Old Dominion, where his family roots go back to the settlement of Jamestowne in 1607. Following in that legacy, he grew up in the Tidewater region in an eclectic mix of rural farms and city life, and was blessed to be influenced by everything from fishing and crabbing in the Nansemond River, to studying law, history, and politics.  

Fred holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from Old Dominion University, and a Juris Doctor from the Mercer University School of Law.  In 2014, Fred became a founding partner in the firm Bush & Taylor, P.C. in Suffolk, where he focuses on litigation.

Today, Fred is a proud husband and father, practices law, continues to be a “student” of history, a collector, and a writer. His work has appeared in such historical journals as Military Images and Civil War Navy Magazine, and Fred is the founding director at Tar Heel Faces, whose mission it is to document and research the photographic legacy of Civil War soldiers from North Carolina.

Additionally, Fred remains active in his community and has served on the board of directors for multiple non-profit organizations, including Preservation of Historic Suffolk, Riddick’s Folly House Museum, the Suffolk Education Foundation, the Suffolk SPARC initiative and the Boys & Girls Club of Southeast Virginia.
