  • Jason Edward Havens

    Hayward's law firm has handled several client matters that we have referred, with positive feedback from every client. We were also involved in a trust litigation matter that Hayward capably handled. I would recommend Hayward and his law firm for any civil litigation. Hayward is also one of few lawyers in the area who can handle criminal defense cases.
