I had a rather unfortunate speeding ticket which was well above normal limits .... Mr Hayes was extremely straight forward which is confidence inspiring as it paints you a realistic picture of your scenario, where you stand and what you can expect . Told me upfront the implication and what was possible and the best possible scenario. He went ahead and got the best possible scenario. I strongly recommend Mr Hayes for any traffic related violations.

I found out that lawyers are a dime a dozen the last 20 years of my adult life. This one is worth having on your side. I mostly deal with buiness related law and working a lot now a days which keeps me out of court but when and if I need this attorney for any of his related services he would be the first one on my list to call to see if he could lend a hand.
If you see that he handles cases on what you are looking for, hire him and do what he says period end of sentence.

Going into a difficult legal situation can be intimidating and stressful for anyone. So, choosing a good lawyer can make all the difference in not only the result, but in your ability to get through a difficult time. The best decision I made was in choosing Michael Hayes as my lawyer. He exceeded all my expectations for legal representation. I personally caused a great deal of stress in my life with my arrest, but Michael Hayes provided excellent legal counsel ensuring not only the best outcome but personal piece of mind. During the entire process, he demonstrated a professionalism and legal expertise that are second to none. I will be eternally grateful for all his hard work and dedication to my case.

I didn’t need a lawyer for over 25 years but then when I did need one I remembered who saved me 25 years ago - Michael Hayes. A felony theft conviction would have destroyed my business and a lot more. Attorney Hayes was a magician. No charges! No record! Nothing! I don’t think I’ll ever need a lawyer again but if I do, he’ll get the call.

I spoke to several Attorneys prior to Mr. Hayes. He was always very receptive and kind and answered my calls promptly. He was kind, honest, and provided the necessary information I needed and what to expect from the process. He was also willing to workout a payment plan. Would definitely recommend.

Mike Hayes did a great job for me at trial on the issue of whether my BAC was .15 at the time of my offense in Racine County Circuit Court this month. We met many times prior to the trial to explore all of the possibilities and determine the best course of action. There were many evidence issues that Attorney Hayes was able to spring at trial as presented in the legal pleadings addressing intricacies in the evidence. Prior to trial we had thoroughly reviewed all the various scenarios that could occur in court. We were certainly well prepared and we prevailed. The judge granted our motion for a directed verdict at the close of the prosecutor’s case despite the fact that the prosecutor had a state expert at the trial. Mr. Hayes was able to present the case without the considerable expense of having our own expert testify at trial.
When we started out Mr. Hayes took the time to understand that avoiding the Ignition Interlock Device requirement was a professional imperative of mine. Mike helped me make the best of a bad situation and when we finished I understood what a fine attorney I had hired.

Thank God my husband hired Mr. Hayes when he was charged with felony OWI 2nd offense with a minor passenger causing injury in November 2013. He could have gone to prison for 12 Years. Mr. Hayes filed a motion to strike the injury allegation and was successful in getting it dismissed. My husband was only convicted of a misdemeanor with a short Huber sentence. Mr. Hayes did more for my husband than any other lawyer, especially the lawyer we hired for his first OWI offense.

What a relief to get my OWI charge amended to reckless driving. In July 2012, I was arrested for operating under the influence and for having a prohibited alcohol concentration. For the next two years there were 4 or 5 trial dates scheduled. Mr. Hayes assured me that this was a case that should be fought and I believed him. He was right. In July 2014, the case was resolved with an amendment to reckless driving. This was particularly important for me because of the effect a conviction would have had on my Illinois driver license.

In early 2014 I had an OWI case in Waukesha County with a BAC of .21. I did not want to contest the case but I didn’t want to be under a one year Ignition Interlock Device requirement which would have gone into effect if the judge found that my BAC was .15 or above at the time of the offense. I hired Attorney Michael M. Hayes who hired an expert to prepare a report showing that while my BAC was .21 when tested at the station, at the time of the offense my BAC was under .15. Attorney Hayes was then able to negotiate with the prosecutor to conclude the case without the Ignition Interlock Device requirement. I was very pleased with his professionalism, down-to-earth manner and quick handling of the situation. He was also willing to negotiate a payment plan with me that was convenient and reasonable.

After serving my short jail sentence for my 3rd owi offense in Waukesha I am even more convinced that Michael got me through it with as short and fair a sentence as possible. I met many others with longer senteces. All of the coaching and advice he gave along the way took alot of pressure and anxiety away from me and provided a clear path for me to follow. I would recomend him to anyone looking for an experienced and thorough attorney.
