Hired Kevin for a DUI. My career was on the line and needed it to go away. Met with several lawyers and was not really impressed. Finally a cop buddy gave me Kevin's name (Mr. Hayslett). Met with him and we hit it off because his approach to a problem is similar to mine. Kevin worked his butt off and got my DUI reduced.
We had several court dates and finally the prosecutor caved inand we got it done.
Listen my job, career and family depended on the outcome of my case. Kevin Hayslett delivered. And thats all I've got to say about that.
If you get arrested hire him.

SAVED MY LIFE-
I was charged with a extremely indefensible DUI Manslaughter charge.
I had made admissions and the police had 2 eye witnesses
who testified against me. Mr. Hayslett was brilliant. His courtroom presentation was out of a movie. Let's put it this way after the trial I SAW a juror ask for his business card.
He spent way more time than I had paid for- took my case personally and got an acquittal. He never stopped fighting for me. I'm married and have a son that I never would have had without his help. In my opinion he's simply the best lawyer anywhere. I truely can never adequately thank him for my tenacity and attention to detail. He still calls me to check up on me.
If someone is comparing Mr. Hayslett to other lawyers , Don't. You can't. I've had my share of lawyers and was raised watching my mother deal with a multitude of different lawyers and law firms large and small. Mr. Hayslett surpasses them all.
Yes he was my lawyer. Yes he saved my life.
He also became my life long friend.

Mr. Hayslett is hands down, the best criminal defense attorney in America today. I've been erroneously charged with crimes by overzealous prosecutors for political reasons and Mr. Hayslett has been able to overcome the power of the state and the media bias against me to prevail at actual jury trial. His closing was both persuasive and a masterpiece of lawyering. Mr. Hayslett's handling of pre-trial motions preserved great issues for appeal in case I was convicted. The legal knowledge and preparation for trial showed as I was acquitted in 50 minutes. If you need a criminal lawyer, call Mr. Hayslett as fast as you can.

I endorse this lawyer's work. Kevin is an excellent Attorney. His attention to detail is unparalleled. Preparation is where Keven really shines. He is always extremely well prepared and he will be ready to confront anything that happens in the Courtroom. Kevin is also very enthusiastic and and genuinely concerned about his clients.

I had the pleasure of having Kevin Hayslett on the opposing side of many criminal cases while I was a prosecutor. I know first hand how he deals with prosecutors inside and outside the courtroom. Kevin has a reputation for being well prepared, well versed in the law, and articulate in his presentations before judges and juries. He is always professional and respectful when he zealously advocates his clients' position and defends their rights. I know he had the respect of the other prosecutors in my office as well. I recommend Kevin Hayslett with the first hand knowledge of seeing his efforts and results as my adversary. He has my highest respect.
