Cy grew up in rural southwestern Kansas. As a teenager Cy worked on farms, mowed grass, shoveled snow, and worked at a grocery store. He moved to Colorado for college, graduating from Fort Lewis College in three years with a bachelor’s degree in International Business. During his time at Fort Lewis, he spent a semester in France and interned at a grain importer in Matamoros, Mexico.

After college, Cy went on to earn a Master’s degree in business administration at the University of Montana. Before law school, Cy worked as a bank officer and had a front row seat to the Great Recession.

During his time in law school, Cy spent a summer studying NAFTA and Mexican commercial law at the Universidad de Guanajuato in Guanajuato, Mexico, and was a member of the International Law Society. Cy is fluent in Spanish and enjoys Hispanic cultures.

After law school, Cy practiced in the areas of family law, bankruptcy, personal injury, debt relief, and general civil litigation at firms in the Phoenix metropolitan area before starting his own law firm. This background allows Cy to give holistic counsel to clients in financial distress.

When Cy is away from the office he is generally spending time with his wife, Samantha. Together, they enjoy kayaking, fishing, hunting, reading, and gardening.

He TRANSFORMED My Bankruptcy Experience Into A Positive One
I am astonished with the service that Mr. Hainey provided. I had dozens of very specific questions throughout the process and Mr. Hainey was so generous as to answer them and share his wisdom with me. He made the bankruptcy filing process seem effortless on my part. Though, I am sure him and his staff worked tirelessly to make things happen. All in all I am very thankful to have had him represent me.

Amazing lawyer, Cy turned what I thought would be a nightmare into an easy process.
I cannot say enough good things about Cy. I was at a point in my life where I didn't know what to do, I was deeply in debt and about to lose just about everything. I happened to find his firm on Google, and set up an appointment for a consultation, and it just happened to be with Cy. Within an hour he was able to clearly lay out what my options were, how to go about filing, what we would need to do, and how it would affect my future. Throughout the entire process of filing for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, Cy was always checking in to make sure we had everything correct, submitted the proper paper work in time, and overall made the process very clear and simple. I had many questions about the filing, from the impact on my credit to what I should expect with the trustee, and he was patient and understanding, making sure I understood exactly what was happening and what I needed to know. Cy made a very difficult part of my life much easier, and I cannot be more thankful to have had him as my lawyer.

Excellent Lawyer!
I've had the opportunity to work with many legal professionals over the years. Recently I was involved with an issue that had been seriously messed up when a couple of attorneys dropped the ball and missed deadlines. The end result was a very time sensitive situation. Cy moved on our case immediately. He made the necessary calls and filed the appropriate documents to resolve our matter quickly, within the necessary time frame. This involved serious negotiations and solid communication with all the parties involved was absolutely necessary. Cy navigated the issues that were dropped in his lap and brought this to a very satisfactory conclusion for everyone involved. We sincerely appreciate his professionalism. He did everything expected of him. His communication will us was excellent. I would HIGHLY recommend Cy and his firm, Hilltop Law firm. Thankx Cy...

He was angrier than I was
I appreciate the help that Mr. Hainey and Ms. Megan extended me. I loved the fact that he was angrier than I was with my former employer. Where I lessened what happened at work- Mr. Hainey and his firm made me aware that I did what I was supposed to do and since the company failed to do their part, I shouldn't feel bad about hiring him. "I really feel bad about this, sir, but I don't have another option. I've spent what little I've had saved before the incident and now they've fired me." I felt bad about this whole ordeal, and was powerless to do anything. I literally had two multi-million companies bullying me. By the time I was dismissed from my employer, I had already hired and fired another attorney, lol. One from a great big prestigious firm. That attorney didn't have much fight in him. He wanted to just settle which is what I wanted; he just wasn't prepared to go further. Mr. Hainey was prepared to do so. In accepting my case, Mr. Hainey had to work alongside of another [Workers Comp] attorney. Together, they obtained a reasonable out of court settlement and helped me to put this all behind me.

Unresponsive and unhelpful
When I first hired Cy to help me with a wage garnishment and outstanding credit debts, he was very responsive and answered my questions immediately. He stated that he would be able to promptly stop my wage garnishment and set up a payment plan through my creditor with both that debt and my other debt. Despite my underemployment, I managed to pull together several hundred dollars as a down payment to hire him and have him help me resolve my debt issues - expecting that I would more than make up for his fees with the savings I got from my outstanding debt. However, after a few weeks of regular communication, I stopped hearing from him. At first, I was told he was on vacation. Then, he was simply out of the office. After that, I stopped getting any responses whatsoever. Eventually, I heard back from him when he said he was having a hard time getting a response from my creditors but was still trying. I gave him a few weeks more while my paychecks were still being garnished at the original rate. Eventually, after I pleaded with him to do something, he managed to get my garnishment percentage dropped from 25% to 15% per paycheck. Hoping things were finally progressing, I continued to be patient with him. For the next few months, I once again got no response from him. I tried in vain several times to get any sort of reply, but he was of no help whatsoever. So, I finally decided to contact my creditor directly. I heard back from them less than two hours later and I was able to set up a payment plan on my own. Mr. Hainey told me he would get my garnishment taken care of immediately and save me significant money on my other debts. Not only have I had to pay the entire amount in full, I am also out the several hundred dollars I initially paid to him. I have been extremely disappointed and would not recommend working with Mr. Hainey to anyone.
