Highly Recommend
Jonathan and the rest of the group at Goldstein & Hayes are incredible! The personal attention given to my case made me feel like family. How often can you say that about a law firm. The professionalism and attention to detail always made me feel comfortable about their advise and the decisions made. I highly recommend Jonathan, and all of the employees at Goldstein & Hayes.

He Really Cares!
Not often can you find an attorney that you can trust but Jonathan Hayes is the most trust worthy attorney I have come across, ever. He made me feel that he really cared about what I had been dealing with and that I was not just another client. I felt like I was important and what I was feeling mattered and he made me feel comfortable and secure with what I was going through and educated me on the process every step of the way.

Excellent Attorney!!
I hired Jonathan Hayes because I had a terrible car accident involving me and my fiance. This case was a difficult case because the other party didn't want to take responsibility for his actions and it could've cost us everything. But Jonathan Hayes was relentless in his pursuit of justice and my monetary settlement! Although he had to work on my case during a pandemic, he never complained, stayed available to me and ultimately won my case. I couldn't be happier with my choice to hire Goldstein and Hayes!!

Jonathan Hayes is the best of the best!
If you are looking for the most efficient, professional and ethical law firm in Georgia you do not need to look any further than Goldstein & Hayes, P.C. There are not enough kind and positive words that can use to express the gratitude and respect that I have for Mr. Jonathan Hayes and his team. During one of the most difficult and life changing times of my life, I called Goldstein & Hayes office for guidance and assistance and I was immediately connected to Mr. Jonathan Hayes. In the midst of my crisis, he took the time to speak to me and discuss the details of my case. He was knowledgeable, informative and professional, while being extremely sensitive and compassionate to my situation. He was very clear and concise in explaining the legal process and the length of time it would take to resolve the case. He was positive and reassuring and always maintained open communication with me. I never had to call his office to find out the status of my case. He kept me updated and informed with the progress of my case at all times. I could not have found a better Law firm to look after my best interest. Jonathan Hayes went above and beyond and I will be eternally grateful to him and his staff. You could not be in better hands than with Goldstein & Hayes! I promise!

The best attorney I have ever worked with!
Probably the best attorney I have ever worked with. Both Jonathan and Jessica are extremely professional and really took care of me. Their communication was incredible through the whole process and I never had to worry about anything. From the start, they were really involved and interested in my well being and always stayed in contact. They handled everything on my behalf and I couldn't have been more pleased. They will remain my attorney in the event I need them again and I highly recommend them. If you are searching for an attorney to represent you, they will take good care of you.

Goldstein & Hayes is the best
I rate Goldstein & Hayes, Attorneys a 10! I called the firm because I needed a really good accident lawyer. They return phone calls, check on me and keep me well-informed about my case. When I was unable to go into the office they came out to me. I feel they have covered everything carefully and professionally. Goldstein & Hayes is the best!

Great Supportive Lawyer In Injury Incidents
A very professional and considerate lawyer who follows up with all your concerns and needs. I had brain injury case with my small son , and they helped every minute so he could be at his best so he could think and do things properly . They are very resourceful and know the steps to winning a case . They increase your confidence and support you with daily information about what's going on lately . The least I can say is they would be my recommended lawyer to you if you're in a brain injury situation. They are experienced and dedicated for the best options for you . - Mina

My family & I have used Jonathan several times over the years especially in several accident cases involving my 2 sons from they were teenagers. Jonathan have always been extremely responsive & always so easy & very professional to work with, always accessible whenever we needed him. We have recommended Jonathan & his legal firm to many friends & relatives and all have nothing but high praise for Jonathan. Whenever I need legal help I will always call upon him, if it's not in his field he always direct me to the proper person. I'm glad to know I have access to great legal help when I need it.

Great Firm and Attorney
When I needed help after a horrible accident, I found Goldstein and Hayes through a friend. Jonathan Hayes was the most attentive and comforting attorney I could ever hope for. He visited me in the hospital and then at my home and kept me informed of everything that was going on with my case. With his expertise and care, we settled the case and I was more than happy with the outcome. He was amazing to work with and I appreciate everything he did for me.

One terrific lawyer!
Jonathan is not your typical lawyer (as you can see by my ratings above). I've worked with a few before, but none with the commitment that he showed, going well beyond his responsibilities to provide a service that kept me comfortable with what was happening and with his positive attitude toward the eventual outcome. He was right on target! I will never use anyone else.

Professioinalism of Jonathan Hayes
This guy is the best; both inside the court room and in his case research and preparation. I have witnessed first hand his professionalism, his love and dedication to family, and commitment to community. He has provided me with excellent legal advice regarding a possible employer age discrimination case, and how to update a will in the state of Georgia.
