I visited 3 different real estate lawyers before meeting with Mr. Hay. Immediately I felt I found the best lawyer to handle my real estate case He was knowledgeable, diligent professional and always kept me informed and up to date by e-mail . One of the biggest differences among the lawyers I previously met and Mr. Hay is that he is compassionate and truly cares for his clients. I would highly recommend him. This is a guy that will put your best interests first. Thanks Mr. Hay!

Over the years I have worked with John and his firm on several legal matters - setting up a new business entity, negotiating a franchise agreement, negotiating a retail lease, several legal issues pertaining to my retail business as well as numerous residential real estate transactions.
He and his firm were always responsive, gave sage advice, handled issues on a timely basis with the utmost professionalism.
I highly recommend John and his team to handle most any transaction.

John and his team set the bar for Austin Attorneys! We deal with hundreds of real estate transactions a year, all with different issues, owners with difficult personalities, etc.- John and his team handle each one professionally, and with great diligence. We get rave reviews from our clients after they have completed a transaction with John's office!

He has always represented his clients with the utmost integrity, has always had his clients' best interests at heart, and has always done a very fine job for the referrals I send his way.
