About Us

At Gilliland and Hayes, our mission is to offer high-quality legal services while providing outstanding client experiences. We take pride in resolving matters as quickly as possible by providing our clients with our full attention. While we are primarily a civil litigation defense firm, our practices also include areas of estate planning, family law, business law and health care law. Our diverse client base spans virtually all facets of personal and business law. Founded in 1959, Gilliland and Hayes offers experience and expertise. We understand the need to provide more than knowledge of the law. By getting to know each client – their objectives, opportunities, risks, and challenges – we strive for a comfortable relationship in which we deliver cost-effective, results-focused services.
