  • Nathaniel Hall Wylie

    Ms. Hayes and I began our careers together in Seattle. She was then, and remains, one of the brighest attorneys I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is committed to her clients, as well as to the multitude of causes she has put her efforts towards over the last ten years.

    Over the past ten years, I have consistently been impressed with Lisa Hayes' work as well as her attitude. Lisa's tenacity for her clients' causes is perfectly matched with her acumen and good judgment. She is truly a superb attorney.
