Our Powerhouse Team Approach

Kathleen M. Sweeney and Charles C. Hayes built Sweeney Hayes LLC on the premise that no individual should ever have to face the complex world of the justice system on their own. Kathleen and I are incredibly proud of the work we did zealously advocating on behalf of our clients’, and for the relationships we have built with the people we met along the way. In 2016, Sweeney Hayes LLC welcomed Jane Ruemmele as an attorney to our team, and we have changed our name to Hayes Ruemmele LLC. We are honored to have the opportunity to continue to advocate on behalf of individuals and families, and to ensure that “no one stands alone.”

Experience And Teamwork

Charles Hayes and Jane Ruemmele have a combined legal experience of more than 40 years, and have collectively handled well over 100 jury trials. We believe in a collaborative approach. Clients frequently receive the attention of two attorneys over the course of representation. This collaborative approach allows us to see a case from various angles to identify the important legal and factual issues.

We have trial and appellate experience and are able to handle cases from initial negotiations through a state or federal appeal.
