About Files Hayle

Our Philosophy

1

Client-Centered Advocacy

Your goals and objectives are at the core of every decision we make to move your case forward.

2

Strategic Representation

Beginning with a clear and thorough plan ensures that we are always guiding your case and never simply reacting.

3

Lasting Results

We aim for outcomes that preserve relationships and adapt to any future changes in your family or business.

Why Choose Us

 

Collaborative Approach

At Files Hayle, the focus is on getting clients through their family law cases without permanently harming their family units.  Litigation is temporary, but it can have devastating lasting effects if not approached with care. We work with our clients to ensure that our representation is not only exceeding their expectations, but also achieving their unique goals.

Honest and Efficient Legal Care

Litigation can be exhausting, both emotionally and financially, whether it involves your family or the business you’ve worked hard to create.  Files Hayle aims to get your case resolved as efficiently as possible while getting you the outcome you deserve.  Files Hayle prides itself on practicing law with integrity.  The time spent on your case is necessary to achieving the desired outcome.

Legal Strategy Tailored to Your Needs

Legal cases are as unique as family structures.  There is no one-size-fits-all solution.  Files Hayle will look at the specific circumstances of your case and develop the legal strategy that works best for you and your needs.
