“After we found numerous issues in our buildings, we found the builders had filed for bankruptcy and were told it would be pointless to start any legal action. John assured us he could help and he delivered what he promised. He was always available to every homeowner and made it a point to keep all our homeowners updated on the progress of our case. After reaching a multimillion-dollar settlement, without any special assessment to our homeowners, our buildings were finally repaired and issues we didn’t even realize at the start were also taken care of.”

Steve Fischer, former Cambridge Lakes Homeowners Association President and resident

$8,200,000 obtained on behalf of a non-profit that provides housing for the low income, elderly and disabled whose buildings contained numerous construction defects and toxic mold

Settlement was achieved for a nonprofit organization, providing affordable housing for low-income and disabled seniors. At a considerable cost to the organization over 120 senior citizens were forced to move due to the mold infestation caused by the improper installation of the HVAC systems, brick, and windows and other construction defects. Hayes Law saw that damages were collected for the cost of building repairs and the consequential damages that were a result of the defendants’ actions.


More than $2,000,000 obtained on behalf of homeowner in a bad faith case

Even with sufficient documentation, an insurer refused to pay a South Carolina homeowner’s claim for toxic mold. After an extended dispute, the mold spread even further, resulting in the eventual demolition of the home. Hayes Law fought the insurance company and received significant compensation for the homeowner.


$3,500,000 obtained from a bankrupt contractor and its subcontractors on behalf of an HOA for construction defects 

Construction defects within seven condominium buildings resulted in severe water intrusion. Hayes Law secured payment for damages that were the direct result of the now bankrupt developer, contractor and subcontractor for the homeowner association and its homeowners.


Over $1,400,000 obtained on behalf of a homeowner with toxic mold from a faulty window installer 

Multiple subcontractors were held responsible for construction defects such as water intrusion, degradation within the exterior and interior walls, faulty doors and windows improperly installed, high levels of mold and mildew, and numerous other damages, defects, and deficiencies.
