Honest and Fair Attorney
Mr. Hayes was a very transparent attorney. It’s very rare to find an attorney that legitimately wants you to know every aspect of what’s going on with your case. Chris was surprisingly friendly and understanding about my situation (a minor probation violation for not completing a court ordered class on time). I got an honest and very good price from him within a few minutes of explaining my situation. Needless to say, as soon as I hired him, he got to work. The results were just as expected and he even followed up regarding my case! I would recommend this attorney to anyone in his area of practice. You won’t be disappointed.

Excellent attorney and a WONDERFUL person
Chris is an excellent attorney and WONDERFUL person! We consulted him for a traffic violation case. He described every possibilities, approaches, process of legal matters and explained how to go about the case. He didn’t work on my case, since he doesn’t work in the county court my case was filed in. But still clarified all my queries, confusions for a novice like me whenever I called/mailed him, or even met him in parking lot of our office (we both work in same office building/different floors). He is a very good human being, I would strongly recommend him to anyone.

I highly recommend Christopher Hayes, with Brown Cornell Farrow LLC, Jefferson City. He is not only knowledgeable, hardworking and professional but truly cares about his client and family. His communication skills are phenomenal. He emails or calls you promptly and walks you through every step of the complicated legal system until you completely understand. I just recently contacted Chris regarding a matter we settled about a year ago. He did not hesitate to help me and in record time. My husband and I will always be grateful to Chris.
