What Our Clients Say

Ms. Hawkins proved to us that experience does matter. She helped our young son avoid years in prison when he faced a serious crime, and now we have hope for a bright future for him. She provided a voice for us and we are so grateful.

When I was charged and felt like everyone already thought I was guilty, Ms. Hawkins stood by me and helped me through one of the scariest times of my life. She challenged the state’s evidence and the charges were dropped.
— C.T.
