GREAT WORK
I was recommended to Darin by a friend of mine and it was a great decision. I was T-boned while driving through an intersection on my motorcycle. Darin fought hard to get all of the medical bills taken care of as well as getting a fair value for my damaged property. This started as a no fault case but he worked diligently to prove culpability. I appreciate him taking the time to explain every part of the process along the way. I would recommend Darin to anyone in need of an attorney.

Amazing
From the beginning of our experience with Hutton and Hutton Law Firm, we just kind of knew these were our guys. We had a very difficult case involving a minor and they went above and beyond any and all of my expectations. They not only fight for you but they get to know you and I still receive emails on Holidays and occasional calls just checking in. I could not be happier with Darin Hayes and the service that was provided for us. They helped us get everything we needed and more for my son.
