Personable, professional, and honest
When I was in need of an attorney I shopped around to quite a few different legal firms. Many were certainly qualified, and most were incredibly professional. What stuck out to me when speaking with Hayley, was that at no point did she ever rush me when I went through explaining my situation to her nor did she cut me off. She allowed me to say all that I needed, and the best part was that she genuinely listened. Most others had cut me off, or really made me feel the rush of a typical "free" consultation. I felt like a client from the get-go. I was treated with respect, and an understanding that seems to be growing farther and fewer between legal representatives. The fee was par for what was needed, but after everything was said and done, it felt like I had received quite the discount due to all the work she put into the case. I was always kept informed, and my interests along with the interests of my family were kept as a priority. I can't recommend Hayley enough. If you're looking for someone who will have a genuine investment into whatever it is you're going through, and is confident in the way she represents not only herself but you in a courtroom. Hayley is certainly it.

Excellent Hire!
I hired Horwath Law for my husbands DUI case, and Hayley Fulton was an excellent decision to hire. She won a DUI case in Lewis County, which is one if the hardest counties to fight this type if case. If in a jam, I would recommend this firm to everyone who would like to get professional, kind, and helpful advice.

Hired for an m.i.p case.
We hired Hayley for an m.i.p. case. I was arrested with 3 of my friends. Of all of us, my situation was the worst. My buddies all hired a different lwayer, and despite having the worst circumstances, I was the only one who ended up having the charges dropped. My friends all ended up taking a deal. It was clear that we made the right choice. Hayley went above and behond what my friend's lawyers did. Would definitely recommend.

Hayley Fulton is an outstanding attorney! She is a true professional and always placed my interest at the highest priority. She explained how the whole legal process worked and what outcomes can be achieved in regards to my situation. She is very knowledgeable with the law and had a plan from the very beginning. Within a short amount of time, she was able to get my case dismissed before it even went to trial. I hope that I would not have a need for another attorney, but if I do, she is the one I trust. All in all, she made this entire ordeal manageable and understandable...most importantly, she was able to produce my desired end result. Thanks Hayley!

Fantastic Defender
Hayley was assigned to me as a Public Defender for a DUI case. I was skeptical, as I have heard many horror stories regarding Public Defenders, but she was amazing. While other court appointed defenders were trying to find their clients in the court room, Hayley immediately recognized and approached me despite only meeting me in person once, nearly two months prior. She fought hard on my behalf and was able to secure an incredibly gentle deal with the prosecutor. Throughout the ordeal she was kind, patient, and upbeat. She took the time to answer my numerous questions, even on the weekends. Since my court date, she has maintained contact and continued to answer my questions. She was, without a doubt, the best lawyer I could have asked for. I would recommend her to anyone, including my friends and family. I will always be grateful for her help.

Great attorney
I hired Hayley to represent my 17 year old son against a reckless endangerment charge. She treated him with respect and best of all she got the charges dropped. I would highly recommend her.

Life Saver!
I’m a police officer and I hired Hayley Fulton after I was accused of a Felony Crime. I heard from several reliable people that Hayley was going to be honest, reliable, and have my back throughout the whole criminal process. I did not know where to turn. I wanted someone that was going to do everything she could for me and keep me in the loop throughout the process. After I hired Hayley, she immediately put my anxiety to rest; she took the situation head on and took the weight off my shoulders. Hayley was open, honest, and always available to provide the reassurance I needed throughout the proceedings. Hayley fought for me every step of the way. If you want an attorney that will fight for you to protect you, your family, and your life… Hire Hayley Fulton.

She brought my felony down to a misdemeanor
I was charged with felony possession of a firearm in Grays Harbor County. I was facing up to 1 year incarceration and possibly thousands in fines. At first I thought she was not taking care of business, and then she proved me very wrong. I ended up with the ability to leave the county, before my trial was over, and best of all my felony was reduced to an aiming or discharging a firearm (a misdemeanor) and less than A $1000 in fines. Thank You Hayley!

Best Lawyer Ever
We have worked with many lawyers in the past and Hayley is the best. She always answered emails promptly and answered all our questions. She worked with the prosecutor on a fair settlement that we are pleased with. I recommended her if you need a lawyers assistance.

Great Job!
Hayley recently did a great job defending us in an anti-harassment case. Her knowledge of the system and careful planning were greatly appreciated. She and the office staff promptly answered any questions we had by phone, email, or in person. We were very pleased with her and with the outcome of our case!

For anyone going through the anxiety of "Whats going to happen to me?" from a DUI, Hayley Fulton is the one to have on your side. She answered all of my zillion questions in a timely manner and knew exactly what i needed to do to get the best possible verdict. All of my friends said she nailed it.

Best possible outcome
Going to court for any reason is, I now know, a scary thing to do. Hayley definitely helped to calm me down, which was an important part of the process for me. I certainly never felt afraid to ask her any questions, and she never seemed put out by my asking. I was always met with an honest, knowledgeable answer. She got me the best possible outcome given the circumstances, and I walked away relieved to put the whole experience behind me. I would definitely recommend Hayley to a friend/family member in need of representation.

Responsive Attorney
I was taken to court for a false anti-harassment claim. I did nothing wrong, but had never been in a courtroom and was really nervous about what to expect and how the process worked. Hayley Fulton was great. It really helped to have a professional in my corner to keep me calm, and she even called me directly before the hearing to answer any questions I had and really took the time to listen to my concerns. It was a nice, calming experience to have such a responsive attorney. The unknown stuff is always nerve wracking, and it was very nice to have someone walk me through it and tell me what to expect. The hearing went very smoothly. The case was dismissed.

Case dismissed......
Hayley is one of the better lawyers that I have hired. During my DV Assault 4 case she was very proactive in staying several steps ahead of the prosecution. Although she had another concurrent case, I always felt that she was readily available to address any of my concerns. I appreciated the honest feedback in terms of my chances to beat my charge. In the end she was able to get my case dismissed!
