Extremely qualified to get positive results with very reasonable cost. Always very easy to work with, I make a call and it gets handled.

I was in big trouble. I was guilty (first degree wreckless endangerment) but with some mental health issues that the D.A. didn't care about or maybe didn't understand fully. Combat veteran with PTSD. He (Bill Hayes and his excellent staff) poured through thousands of pages of medical records. I do mean thousands. He pinpointed things and asked pointed questions to me. He took an interest in every detail. He met with me several times in jail and kept my family up to date after asking if that was ok with me. The D.A. wanted years in prison. I wanted a year in jail. Bill Hayes wanted me to go home. I went home. He is a bulldog in a suit. I cannot tell you how good he was. I live a quiet life now. I am free and it is because he is very very good at what he does. These are my words and I wouldn't say this if it wasn't how I honestly feel.

Very good in the courtroom very aggressive straight to the point and tells you how he feels about things. HOWEVER... II paid my retainer (2500) which was every penny my family could afford and I explained to him I needed to use the money as gently as possible until our actual court date and well he assured me I had no bill with him and not to worry... 3 days later I got a bill for another $2300 and we hadn't even seen our day in court and the papers filled hadn't even been signed by the judge. My ex husband now have my children who want to live with me and continue to run away and fail in school I have learned law is all money that's it if you have money you will win no matter what.
