He represented Brunswick County and then Williamsburg in the House of Delegates from 1776 to 1786. Tazewell was appointed to the General Court in 1785, and served as chief justice from 1789 to 1793. He then was appointed judge of the Virginia Court of Appeals that year. The Virginia General Assembly appointed Tazewell United States Senator in 1794 and he served until his death in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 24 January 1799. He was buried at Christ Church in Philadelphia. Tazewell married Dorothea Elizabeth Waller (1754-1777), daugher of Benjamin Waller (1716-1786), 13 January 1774, and they had two children, Littleton Waller Tazewell and Sophia Ann Tazewell who married Benjamin Taliaferro (d. 1801) of Williamsburg.

Littleton Waller Tazewell was born in Williamsburg, Virginia, 17 December 1774 to Henry Tazewell and Dorothea Elizabeth Waller. Educated by his grandfather Benjamin Waller and George Wythe (1726-1806), Tazewell attended the College of William and Mary, graduating in 1791.

He represented Norfolk in the House of Delegates from 1804 to 1806 and in 1816.
