John or “JT” is a Colorado native who was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado. The son of the late Boulder trial lawyer John “Jack” Taussig, Jr., John's path to the law was anything but straight. An avid guitar player since the age of 8, John followed his heart and decided to pursue a musical career even before he completed high school. After a couple years learning how tough the music business is for an accomplished guitarist (and learning he wasn't an accomplished guitarist) John returned to Colorado, earned his G.E.D., B.A. and law degree from the University of Colorado in 1983. For the next 20+ years, John was fortunate enough to practice alongside his father as Taussig & Taussig, P.C.. Despite his passion for music, it was inevitable that he would become a trial lawyer and continue the family legacy. John's father and stepfather were both presidents of the Colorado Trial Lawyers' Association; and, his father-in-law was a famous prosecutor on the West Slope.
John has dedicated his life and law practice to representing real people. A tireless and passionate advocate, John has developed a nationwide reputation in the areas of worker's compensation and personal injury. Never one to back down from the good fight, John has tried dozens of cases to verdict and is responsible for 4 of the 7 largest verdicts in Boulder County, Colorado in the last 15 years. In 2007 John obtained the largest verdict in a motor vehicle crash case in Boulder County history.
John attended and graduated Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyers College and is a frequent lecturer on issues related to representing injured people and insurance law.
As a shareholder with Taussig & Taussig, P.C., John practices in the areas of worker's compensation, personal injury, and insurance bad faith in both federal and state courts throughout Colorado. In addition, John continues to litigate cases nationally and serve as local counsel for out-of-state attorneys.
John is a member of the Colorado Bar Association, Boulder County Bar Association, Colorado Trial Lawyers Association (CTLA), The National Trial Lawyers, and American Association of Justice (AAJ). He is admitted to practice in all state and federal Courts in Colorado and the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.
