I have since moved to another lawyer and have had a wonderful experience. My biggest issue with this lawyer is the fact that she charged me for things that were not done. She also did not keep me informed on my case and seldom responded to my request for information. It also seemed like maybe she has the beginning stages of Alzheimers as when we did have conversations, she wouldn't remember the conversation the next time we talked. Either she is a good actress and played like she didn't remember or there is really something going on with her.
I would like to thank Attorney Hankins a thousand times over for her services. She has represented me on several occasions and I will continue to retain her as needed. She is extremely competent and professional. I feel she treated me with kindness and compassion. In short I would highly recommend her for her years of experience , professionalism, competency and compassion. A most grateful and satisfied client.
Dana was the perfect attorney for me because she was genuinely caring, interested in the welfare of all parties, and mostly perceptive to the best interested of the child needs'. I did not feel like I was just another case number in her practice. In cases where human emotions are at the highest, you need someone like Dana who can give you wise legal counsel with respect & integrity.
I, as most people, had no idea of the process involved when you have to Probate a Will and Estate, yet the very first thing Dana did was to sit me down and explain the process in great detail and made sure I was comfortable with what was being said and answered any questions I had. The amazing thing was she really cared about the whole process, not just her fee and how quickly she could settle the case. At times she allowed me to ramble on about my relationship with the deceased, listening and talking to me as a true friend instead of a client, while always maintaining her professionalism. Her attention to detail was extremely helpful and avoided a lot of headaches down the road. Each step in the process was explained along with options and I was allowed to make the decisions without any pressure from her. She would practically hold my hand and walk me though each step.
I know this sounds as if she's a perfect saint, but really, there couldn't have been a more helpful, compassionate, understanding and friendlier lawyer to work with for someone who has never been though this or who has ever had a bad experience before.
Dana Hankins and her very helpful assistant Sonia Baur were like the extended family everyone wishes could be there in a time of need.
I will highly recommend Dana for her, professionalism, efforts, and the knowledge she brings forth to help anyone through a difficult time as quickly as possible with as little pain as possible.
