The Law Offices of Chad M. Hayward, P.C. were founded on the principles of providing exceptional legal services to individuals in need of sound advice and superior legal advocacy.  Personal service is one of the fundamental goals of our firm.  We do not want clients to ever feel that their questions and concerns are being ignored.  When we take on the obligation of representing a person’s rights and interests, we sit down and analyze every facet of the case.  Based on these facts and the goals and needs of the individual, we will develop a unique legal strategy.  We do not believe in offering one-size fits all representation.

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Chad M. Hayward, P.C. have pursued legal actions in courts throughout Chicago and the surrounding region.  This means that we are knowledgeable about the courtroom procedures, the judges sitting on the bench, and the other attorneys practicing in these courts.  This experience allows us to navigate the system effectively and efficiently.  We are prepared to go to court when necessary, but are not going to pursue the most extreme option unless it is in the best interest of our client.  Everything that we do derives from a focus on fighting for the rights of our clients and protecting their interests.

We have a diverse practice, but do focus in several areas in order to provide the highest caliber of legal representation.  Our areas of practice include:

Many of the people who come to our Chicago law office face serious financial problems such as credit card debt, lawsuit judgments, car repossessions, unpaid traffic tickets, creditor harassment, and home foreclosure.

Many people are burdened by unmanageable medical debts, high credit card balances, car loans and other debts.  It can be scary, overwhelming, and isolating.

At the Law Offices of Chad M.Hayward, P.C., our lawyers can help you find a solution.
Every year, hundreds of Chicago families lose their home to foreclosure. However, many of those homeowners could have stopped or at least delayed the foreclosure by filing bankruptcy.

At the Law Offices of Chad M.Hayward, P.C., in Chicago, our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to discuss your options if you are facing home foreclosure. Those options include bankruptcy, loan modification and short sales. We serve clients in the Chicago area and throughout northern Illinois.
When there has been an accident that has led to severe harm, it is critical to look at the following:
  • How the accident occurred – studying the facts of the event is critical to developing a strong personal injury case. It is important to independently analyze the details rather than simply relying on reports by third-parties, even law enforcement;
  • The extent of the injuries – this requires careful documentation of the person’s injuries from any initial emergency treatment to ongoing treatment and rehabilitation. Having medical personnel who can provide testimony about the extent of the harm is extremely important;
  • An analysis of any applicable insurance policies and other sources of recovery – it is necessary to have a source of funds for any settlement or award;
  • The timing of the accident and the necessity of filing a court case within the applicable statute of limitations – this is critical because a person has a very limited time to commence a legal action;
  • Whether an accident reconstruction will help clarify facts and demonstrate liability – there are times when a visual rendition of what happened during the accident can help establish liability; and
  • The benefits of negotiating a fair settlement versus pursuing a legal case.
The purchase of a home is one of the most important and financially impactful events in the lives of many people. Our attorneys ensure that the terms of the transactions are negotiated properly, memorialized, and satisfied at closing for a smooth process.
