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.

Kevin is thorough and as knowledgeable as any attorney I have ever had dealings with. He counts me not only as a client but a friend. I have his personal contact info and I know that I can call him no matter what time of day,and he will be there for me. Many times it is for free advice. To have an attorney like that is priceless.

I retained Mr. Hayslett for a DUI charge that I received this past February. I would highly recommend Mr. Hayslett as he always made me feel at ease and I never left his office with unanswered questions or concerns. He was up front and never gave me misleading information. If questions would arise, as they frequently did, his assistant or himself would always get back to me in a timely manner. He is a very caring and personable attorney. I just went to court and the DUI charge was dropped to reckless driving. I am extremely happy with the out come.

As a prosecutor I would cringe when I came across a case where Mr. Hayslett was representing the accused. I knew he was going to skillfully argue motions and do whatever was needed to best represent his clients. I highly recommend Mr. Hayslett for any criminal law needs.
Andrew Spence, Personal injury Attorney
Kevin continues to be a great mentor to me. His knowledge of the law seems never ending, and his presence in a court room is second to none. He radiates confidence. He gets favorable results for clients, and you become his friend while he does so. I absolutely endorse and recommend Kevin, and it is truly a dream come true to continue to work with him at Carlson & Meissner.
