Ms. Hayes was not only an excellent attorney throughout the duration of my case, but counseled me through some very tough financial decisions and marital obstacles outside of litigation.

“Ms. Hayes was not only an excellent attorney throughout the duration of my case, but counseled me through some very tough financial decisions and marital obstacles outside of litigation. We forged a friendship that will last well beyond our professional relationship and I was blessed to have her on my side.”

—Former Client


She was and continues to be professional, caring, and honest. Ms. Balekian Hayes is a “bulldog” who fights for what’s best for the child.

“I was introduced to Mrs. Balekian Hayes after hiring 2 awful attorneys to represent me in my custody case. She was and continues to be professional, caring, and honest. Ms. Balekian Hayes is a “bulldog” who fights for what’s best for the child. She has always walked me through each step of the long, drawn out custody process. Her and her staff are always friendly, supportive, and quick to respond to all my questions. Mrs. Balekian Hayes is the best Family Attorney in Dallas, hands down.”

—Krystal


At day’s end, we want our attorneys to be tenacious advocates, but most importantly problem-solvers. Justin was that, and more, and is an excellent attorney.

“Mr. Whiddon represented my ex in a divorce proceeding, and yet I feel compelled to over him a favorable review. I am an attorney myself, and am accustomed to seeing far too many family law attorneys over-complicating matters and running up fees. Justin was tenacious, at sometimes difficult (but shouldn’t your opponent’s lawyer be?), but was fair and reasonable and helped us reach a resolution without unnecessary further fees and conflict. At day’s end, we want our attorneys to be tenacious advocates, but most importantly problem-solvers. Justin was that, and more, and is an excellent attorney.”

Integrity and fantastic legal knowledge.

—Former Client


She really listens and offers sound advice based on what you want but will also counsel you on what is reasonable.

“Kris represented me in my divorce. She was very impressive. She really listens and offers sound advice based on what you want, but will also counsel you on what is reasonable. She is super reliable, and has excellent trial and negotiation skills.”


She is tough, smart and will get the results you are looking for

“Kris is an amazing litigator. I couldn’t have made it through without her. She is tough, smart and will get the results you are looking for.”
