Her Passion for The Hayden Law Firm

Amanda Hayden founded The Hayden Law Firm with one goal in mind: protecting the rights of the injured against the unscrupulous tactics of big insurance companies.

Insurance companies want you to forget that you have legal rights, such as the right to financial compensation for the injuries you or a loved one has suffered as a result of the carelessness or negligence of another party.

Often times, when an injured person is most defenseless and vulnerable, they find out the hard way that the insurance company they have paid and trusted to protect themselves and their loved ones does not treat them like a good neighbor, they are not in good hands, and the insurance company is not on their side – no matter how many times the duck quacks, the gecko grins, or Flo gets progressive.

Aggressive insurance companies don’t intimidate us. We understand the very real fight you are up against, and we have the experience and the expertise to help you secure justice and maximize your potential financial compensation.

At The Hayden Law Firm, we are built for battle.
