Experience and Success in a Variety of Cases
Hayes Hofler’s 40+ years of civil litigation and appellate practice have carried him into every trial and appellate division in all geographical areas of the state, including federal courts of North Carolina, where he is certified in all three districts and the U.S. Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit, seated in Richmond, Va. His continuing success in trial and appellate work aid in the prompt settlement of many litigation cases through negotiation or mediation.

In 1981, he helped found a highly successful Durham civil litigation law firm before leaving to form his present law practice in 1990.

When help is needed outside the firm, Mr. Hofler has easy reference to, and will associate as necessary, other highly experienced attorneys whom he has had the privilege of meeting and associating with over his many years of practicing law in North Carolina, at no extra cost to his clients.
