I strive to provide clients with high quality service in a timely and courteous manner.  My goal is to help you achieve your objective as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.  I worked for 5 years in a civil litigation firm in downtown Seattle, struck out on my own in 2006, and have been in solo practice on Bainbridge Island, where I live with my wife and 4 children, ever since.  I bring "big city" skills to a "small town" practice.  Please feel free to contact me.

I had a real tough case with very little time for discovery. Hayes did an outstanding job with what he had to work with and definately gave it his all! Too bad we did not have adequate time for arbitration and we couldn't proove our adversary was lying because we would have done even better. He was definately very very focused, well spoken, responsible and tracked this case with zeal and determination. I would definately us him again as I have hired many attorneys in my career and Hayes is top notch. Thank you Hayes!!!!
