    I am familiar with Fred's career, and I have used his services on a number of projects since I am retired and no longer actively practicing law. Fred represented me in purchasing real property in Sacramento and in Coronado, and he represented me in a property tax appeal. I have been thoroughly satisfied with all legal and real estate projects involving or using Fred Hayes' services.
