About me

Bryan S. Hawkins has lived in Augusta, Georgia nearly all of his life. A graduate of Evans High School, Mr. Hawkins attended the University of Georgia, obtaininig his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science in 2003. He attended law school at the Mississippi College School of Law in Jackson, Mississippi, where he served as the Vice Chairman of the Moot Court Board and as the President of the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies. In law school, Mr. Hawkins was awarded the American Jurisprudence Awards (highest grade in class) in both Trial Advocacy and Expert Witness Seminar. He was also a semi-finalist in the Copeland, Cook, Taylor & Bush Moot Court Competetion and a quarter-finalist in the State of Mississippi Moot Court Competition.

After finishing law school, Mr. Hawkins began his legal career with the law firm of Gardner, Willis, Sweat & Handelman in Albany, Georgia. At Gardner Willis, Mr. Hawkins worked on both the litigation and business teams performing a variety of legal tasks under the guidance of several seasoned attorneys. His business team experience included drafting wills, probating estates, creating businesses, drafting legal contracts, and handling adoptions. He also assisted in litigating hundreds of workers' compensation claims and commercial litigation cases from start to finish as a part of the firm's litigation team. Additionally, Mr. Hawkins assisted in governmental issues, including representation of the Town of Sumner. In addition, Mr. Hawkins served as General Counsel for several small businesses throughout Southwest Georgia, many of which continue to rely on his expertise today.

After sharpening his skills as a competent litigator and obtaining a thorough background as a general practitioner, Mr. Hawkins moved to Atlanta, Georgia to work for Hall, Booth, Smith & Slover to focus exclusively on litigating workers' compensation claims. In 2009, Bryan returned home to Augusta and since that time has developed a very reputable state-wide practice for handling workers' compensation cases representing Employees only. Having handled close to 1,000 cases, Bryan is extremely familiar with Georgia workers' compensation law and is frequently called on by local attorneys for advice and referrals.
