Jennifer L. Haynes, Managing Member

When you call our firm, you are almost guaranteed to speak directly with Managing Member, Jennifer Haynes.  You will have your questions answered and be able to schedule an appointment for a personal consultation promptly.

“The true personal touch is what makes the difference,” she says. “I might meet a client for a real estate closing. It’s when they ask me to be their attorney for other legal needs that I know I’ve earned their trust and confidence. I’m not trying to generate the highest volume; I’m focused on providing the highest-quality service.

Haynes, who grew up in “middle America,” chose a legal career because she knew she wanted to help people. An increasing number of issues in our everyday lives and businesses, which used to be simply resolved, now require legal counsel or representation. Whether it’s a traffic ticket, an estate matter, a civil case or new home purchase, Haynes is emphatic that legal matters should not be intimidating or unaffordable.

“My dream has always been to provide first-class legal counsel to people who are underserved, who feel uncomfortable going to a lawyer, who don’t know what to ask, or don’t even realize that they have options in resolving legal matters. When I sit across from individuals and families and know that I made a difference in their lives that day, I’ve achieved that dream.

“My goal is to take the stress out of legal issues and represent everyday citizens successfully - at an affordable price.”
