Attorney at Law
I began to focus on business law and appellate advocacy, as I took on clients like The Monday Life, a non-profit in NC for its contracts and agreements. My work with startups sparked the idea in me as well. Shortly after, I started my own firm, Hastings Law & Counsel, and hope to… read more continue this momentum of high and affordable quality.
"We hired Mr. Hastings to represent us and throughout the process we have had no regrets in doing so. From our initial consultation he has been consistent, driven, and on point with giving us superb legal representation throughout. Not only is he a brilliant lawyer, but he also cares about his clients, and their legality issues they are facing. Mr. Hastings and his staff’s communication is up and beyond of what you will typically receive from a law office. His law firm cares about the best possible outcome for their clients of which they follow through and deliver on. Going through a legal process is nerve-racking to begin with, and if your legal issues are anything remotely personal or sensitive in nature to you, without a doubt, you would truly benefit having Mr. Hastings and his team on your side. Not only do you get the top quality representation you’re needing but you also get treated like you matter."
"Attorney Hastings reworked our security contracts to aid us in competing within the cutting-edge, technological world of residential and commercial security. I highly recommend his services. He is knowledgeable about the law and worked extremely hard; however, I was most impressed by the way he took the time to ask specific questions about what we do. His knowledge, research into our industry and clear communication came together in a fantastic final product. Thanks again for all of the hard work!"
