    • I do not recommend James Hayes.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 13 matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Is this man still in business??? I have paid in full to this attorney and not received the services I paid for. Have not heard from him in a year. Paid $6,000 in fees?? Really BAD attorney!!!!!!

    • I recommend James Hayes.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Real Estate matter.

    James did not return telephone calls as I preferred, but was very knowledgeable in the area of law I needed. I trusted his, but became a little edgy when I didn’t receive returned telephone calls and kept as informed as I wanted on the progress of my case. Jim proved to be worth the money I spent and even though I did not personally hear back from him as often as I wanted, he was on top of my case with the other party. He resolved my issue and I won my case.

    • I recommend James Hayes.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 13 matter.

    Fighting with our mortgage company and ended up having to file a bankruptcy to avoid foreclosure. Attorney Hayes did everything he could to avoid having to file a bankruptcy. The mortgage company just wasnt willing to work with our situation. Everyone in his office was supportive all the through from start to finish and we still have our home. Im so thankful for that!

    • I recommend James Hayes.

    I consulted with Jim regarding an injury case! He helped me gain the proceeds to pay my medical bills and pay for my pain and suffering, which I was not aware was due to me. Thank you for all your legal guidence and being a friend through my surgeries!

    • I recommend James Hayes.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Probate matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    He did not follow up with me as much as I would have expected. Two different office telephone numbers, which directs to, two different people within the office. (One is completely Knowledgeable and the other is not, at all.) Both are very friendly. Mr. Hayes does know his area of the Law, but slacks on answering the questions you are looking for at a reasonable time rate. This is not the worst, nor the best experiance I have had. I would say he falls in the middle of the road.

    • I recommend James Hayes.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Real Estate matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Help me out of a real estate problem. He knew his case law and we ended up being able to prove the lending company negligent. Mr. Hayes knew the laws, he was there for us, he made us feel like we were old friends and when we left his office we felt like we could breathe because we knew we found the right attorney. He made phone calls during our first appointment. He came to our defense and won our case!!!! His legal assistant is excellent, Very courteous, caring, understanding, and also very knowledgeable. Both are very respectful and treat you like you’re their personal friend. Thank You Jim and Joy for all you two have done.
