HIGHY RECOMMENDED! by
I'm a singe father who was facing criminal child abuse charges, restraining order, testified against by two of my own family members, had a restraining order placed by false allegations, and "high concerns" from DSS. Despite the weight, Angela confidently led me to a victorious outcome. I was awarded primary custody (from a credible mother), anger management dropped, criminal abuse dropped and never once had testify. Mrs. Angela controlled the courtroom. Her incredibly hard work exposed the truth, and won my case(not to mention faced two lawyers). I NEVER HAD TO EVEN HAD TO TESTIFY! Mrs. Hatley is the nicest lady who takes genuine concern for her clients, but in the courtroom its a different story; takes control, demands respect, no one dare interrupts. All other lawyers made it seem impossible to retain kids from their mother. Angela was the only one who led me confidently to believe otherwise. Best kept secret in Fayetteville,NC!!
Terrible experience. Waste of time and money. by
Left hanging -
I'm surprised at how these people are even still in business. The attorney seemed so concerned and willing to help in any way but she literally took my initial payment and went MIA. Months went by without a call, no updates or anything for something that should've been worked out in a matter of weeks. The people there are full of excuses, bad attitudes and laziness. These people snap back at you when questioned as to why and what is taking them so long to get the simplest of things done! They really leave you feeling helpless and disappointed. They are not worth anyone's time, money or grief. They are terrible at what they do; I wouldn't recommend them to ANYONE.
SORRY, TERRIBLE, MONEY TAKERS by
Angela Hatley was my lawyer and after being paid she was always late for court dates and sometimes did not show up for the court dates that were determined. She took the initial fee and did not even ask questions to the defendant on the case. She will just take your money and literally run away from your case. If you have thousands of dollars to throw away hire her as your attorney. She did not even make it with her partner Mr. Stone in Laurinburg because of her ways.

I found Ms Hatley to be very competent and concerned about my case--I received an excellent result in my case
did not even bother to ever call us back or find info after being pad initial fee by
My husband and I tried to get a very simple procedure done and were told that some research had to be done and that we would recieve a phone call within 2 wks...Two weeks came, no call, a month came no call..My husband left messages over this period of time, still no call. I went online, called around, got the info MYSELF and we solved our own problem through the court system. I would NOT recommend this law firm to anyone, the lawyers arent even considerate enough to call you back with a yes/no answer and just leave you hanging. He used Hatley a long time ago and said she was good but from my experience with her, i cannot agree..dont waste your money with these people
