About Brian Taubman

From an early age, Brian Taubman knew he wanted to help people. Sitting around the dinner table listening to his father, Bruce Taubman, speak about the practice of law and how his daily endeavors changed people’s lives for the better, Brian knew that he wanted be an attorney, to help people and to make a difference. Brian went on to graduate from Shaker Heights High School and Kenyon College. He later received his law degree from Capital University Law School.


Today, Brian enjoys practicing law every day at the family firm, but he’s realized he wants to do even more to help people, especially in his community of Lakewood. After nearly a decade in the city, he and his fiancee, Mary, and their two German Shepherds are proud to call Lakewood their home. Brian loves the people and the businesses in Lakewood, and his purpose for running for a Council-At-Large position is to protect the interests of both. With his legal background, he understands what it takes to address city needs with proper legislation.
