A few years ago today, my child's mother threatened to abandon state with our toddler. I filed the necessary paperwork in the courthouse pro se. Eventually, she did leave the state with child without my permission. I hired a local attorney who represented me during several meditations to reestablish my relationship with daughter. The mother eventually decided to not mediate further and my attorney was a bit sluggish to react. I decided to fire her and consult with other attorneys. Mr. Hackworth was 1 out of 4 local attorneys. Each attorney offered trial representation at an expensive rate. Some attorneys did not speak with me and requested consultation fees. Mr. Hackworth contacted me and offered pre-trial and trial representation at a very affordable rate. To be honest, the low rate caused skepticism and hesitation at first. After further online research, I could not find anything negative. I am glad I decided to hire attorney Hackworth. He is personable, he does not make you feel rushed, he conducts business using his own cell phone which is extraordinary and that is not all, Mr. Hackworth assisted me in winning majority custody of my daughter. As a father, most people doubted the possibility of this outcome for the last two years of my life. Attorney Hackworth made this possible. Do not hesitate to hire him, he is affordable, caring and very knowledgeable.
I've recently had the opportunity of working with J. Hackworth on a case involving the visitation of my daughter. This process was emotionally difficult for me and his office made the "legalities" easier by providing prompt responses to my questions and always giving me multiple options when it came to the decisions. I would highly recommend them to anyone that has not had lots of experience with the legal system.
He made my situation as easy as possible for me. He kept me informed and up to speed every inch of the way through the entire process! I will definitely recommend to friends and family. Thank you John!
First time speeding offense I didnt know what to do found him online and he took care of everything! Just needed a few key things and everything else was handled for, in the end I didnt get any points on my license or have to take the driving school, just have to pay a common fine no biggie but AMAZING experience with him!
I have worked as Mr. Hackworth's investigator for over a year and have personally seen him handle dozens of cases. I see the personal relationships he develops with his clients. He is ethical, trustworthy, and hard working, and it shows on a daily basis. He truly cares about the outcome of your case, and whether civil litigation or a criminal defense case, Mr. Hackworth will put his extensive experience to work for you. He has a very knowledgeable staff that works as a team to give your case the proper attention and resolution it deserves. I highly recommend meeting with Mr. Hackworth for a free consultation prior to hiring an attorney.
As scary and inconvenient as it can be to get a traffic ticket, Jon was the first lawyer I ever decided to resolve the traffic ticket with. I had no idea what the process would involve. It is always nerve racking to deal with the court system. Jon made me feel comfortable with the whole process by describing in detail what the whole process would involve and that made me realize how knowledgeable and experienced he is in what he does. He kept me updated with every step of the process. That was very important to me because many lawyers would not contact you until the process is resolved. Jon was always available on my first call to him or if busy would return my call quickly. Anytime I needed to meet with him in person, he would go out of his way to accommodate me. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
I found Jon on this website, and within an hour of my initial email, he personally called me. To summarize the experience, Jon got me the exact results I wanted, in both my original sentencing and the violation. This was my first (and hopefully last!) experience hiring a criminal defense attorney, I was terrified. Jon is a realist, extremely intelligent, and kind minus the bullshit, and that helped me deal during the "waiting game." Great guy, this situation was handled almost perfectly. I say almost because if I had taken his advice and taken 90 days instead of probation, it would have been over a year ago, but it is, over. Thank you again, Jon.
I absolutely would recommend this attorney. I was a battered woman who was suffering at the hands of not only the abuser, but the police as well! They continuously incarcerated myself ONLY for Domestic Violence Battery. He came to see me at the jail and represented me for next to nothing because he truly cares about his clients. He got my charge dismissed and got me out of there in DAYS! Not only did these unjust incarcerations stop, but he gave me the strength I needed to leave my abuser and he didn't even realize how much he truly helped me and my unborn daughter. She is now 8 months old, beautiful and doing very well! If it wasn't for Jonathan, I could have lost my baby completely. Like I previously mentioned, Johnathan truly cares about his clients. Not only did he get the entire case dismissed before I ever even saw a court room....??? But he helped me better my SELF as well!
I hired Jonathan to represent me for a felony marijuana possession case in Florida. I'm from out of state and I'd never been accused of a serious crime before; so I was petrified. From the initial consultation he alleviated my fear and anxiety by explaining the process, answering my naïve questions, and discussing potential outcomes. Throughout my case Jonathon was always easy to reach by phone, and replied lightning fast to any message I sent. He understood my unique circumstances and treated my case with the positivity and attentiveness it needed. His knowledge, experience and attention to detail ultimately delivered an outcome that far exceeded my initial expectations.
Jon was an excellent attorney. He handled a traffic ticket for me and was able to get it dismissed. He was upfront about all the possible outcomes and provided excellent results. I would definitely recommend Jon to anyone that wants an attorney that will be honest and straightforward with them. I will definitely use Jon again if I ever have another legal issue.
