Founded on Experience & Expertise

Hardy B. Traylor established his own law firm in 1976 after years working in liability claims for a major insurance company. Mr. Traylor used this experience to advantage for his clients and set the firm policy that we must protect the clients’ rights because no one else will.

Reginald P. Morris joined his practice with Hardy B. Traylor in 1985 to strengthen the trial capability of the firm. Mr. Morris had extensive experience in personal injury trial work and established the firm policy that TM&E is prepared to litigate large claims and small claims, when necessary, to obtain justice for our clients.

Traylor, Montgomery & Elliott's team of lawyers and paralegals are prepared to fight for your justice and reclaim what was yours before the personal injury accident. Traylor, Montgomery & Elliott's lead attorneys, Elwood V. Elliott and John W. Montgomery, Jr, continue the firm's commitment to experience and expertise.
