The Firm

After receiving his law degree in 1977, John Hayter returned home to North Louisiana to begin practicing law in his home town. For the next 25 years, John enjoyed great success as an attorney in small and medium size firms, gaining invaluable experience, knowledge and insight into managing a successful law practice. In 2002, John determined that his clients' interests would be better served by founding a new law practice under his tutelage. After 16 years, the firm continues to thrive, having earned both the respect and esteem of its clients through dedication to serving their interests first and foremost.

Over the years, the firm has partnered with other accomplished attorneys in an effort to better serve our clients’ needs with the experience and expertise to best represent them. Most recently, the firm was renamed Hayter | Reynolds, after Lauren Reynolds was elevated to partner. Although she too is a North Louisiana native, prior to joining the firm, Lauren practiced law in Atlanta, Georgia for 6 years after graduating from Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C.. While in Atlanta, Lauren worked for a large firm on litigation matters for an assortment of clients that ranged from individual business owners to global Fortune 500 companies.

The expertise, experience and prestige offered through the partnership of Hayter | Reynolds enables the firm to appreciate and address the specific needs of individual clients with local interests, while also providing the context and legal advice to succeed in a complex and litigious economy.
