Taylor Porter attorney Rebecca Hinton has been selected to the Baton Rouge Area Chamber (BRAC) Leadership Baton Rouge Class of 2021. The selected participants represent a cross section of the Capital Region’s business, civic and non-profit communities.
Hinton continues a tradition of several Taylor Porter attorneys participating in a program that was founded in 1985 to prepare a diverse group of professionals for leadership positions in the community.

The program focuses on topic areas such as education, diversity and inclusivity, city and state government, health care and social issues, economic development, the arts and culture, and the criminal justice system.
At Taylor Porter, Hinton represents individuals and businesses in the areas of trust and estates/estate planning; taxation; successions; tax-exempt organizations; corporate matters; and tax controversies. She is ranked by her peers among the Best Lawyers in America (2020, 2021) in trusts and estates and tax law. She is an adjunct professor at Louisiana State University Paul M. Hebert Law Center, and frequently presents at CLE and other seminars on the topics of federal estate and gift taxation, estate planning, and federal taxation. Hinton serves as vice president of the Estate & Business Planning Council of Baton Rouge, and she is a board member of the nonprofit SportsBR. Hinton earned her J.D., in 2006, from LSU Paul M.
