JOHN C. HAYES

Since Hayes Law opened in 2008, it has obtained 30 million dollars in settlements and awards. A native South Carolinian, John C. Hayes IV is deeply connected to the people of the state and its legal community. He is the son of the S.C. Circuit Judge John Hayes and U.S. Ambassador Rita Derrick Hayes. The Hayes family is dedicated to service and helping those in need.

Prior to forming Hayes Law in 2008, Hayes was with one of Charleston’s largest firms. Through that experience he saw that the next step was to create his own firm where he could help clients in meaningful, hands on ways. Hayes has grown Hayes Law to have the strength and resources of a large firm, with the care and attention provided by a smaller firm.

Inspired by the legacy of his family, Hayes has spent his career fighting for people’s rights to be treated fairly and live safely and happily within their homes. A respected attorney on the topics of water intrusion and mold, Hayes is a frequent speaker at conferences, trade events and community organizations.

The firm's track record of success in Construction Law is built on experience on both sides of the courtroom, representing plaintiff and defendant. All Hayes Law cases are meticulously researched and prepared for as if they are going to trial. This strategy, rooted in client service, is responsible for the firm's success.
