Mr. Hawthorne has been a great attorney to work with. It is rare to find an attorney that actually cares about your case, is willingly to take the time to hear what your are saying, assess your needs and respond right away. I have worked with several attorneys in the past, and none of them have come remotely close to his abilities as a lawyer or mediator. He is very knowledgeable, accessible, and not afraid to stand up to aggressive opposition. Several times I had been in a situation that required an immediate response to an allegation or litigation blindside, and it was very comforting to know Jack was on my side. He is one of the top mediator's in the region. He will catch items you hadn't even thought about, pursuing what is absolutely best for you. I will always consider Jack to be one of those people in my life that made a huge difference. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you Jack

Jack is an attorney who actually cares about your case and is very responsive and informative. He checks in regularly and is very patient. I was involved in a divorce where the other party was not very amicable and would harrass me through emails. Jack immediately contacted the other attorney and the harrassing emails stopped. He sent me a copy of the letter he wrote to the other attorney, not only was it very professionally written, but also straight to the point, addressing my concerns, letting the other attorney know that he would not tolerate any further harrassment, which got the results I was looking for. I really like that he has any easy manner, but is not afraid to go after what you want. I would recommend Jack to anyone involved in Divorce, Separation, and Mediation. This is actually a lawyer you can trust, which is almost no-existent with other attorney's I have worked with.

My son got into trouble and had to go to court. Mr. Hawthorn was appointed as my son's lawyer by the juvenile court. He met with us several times and explained to my son how important it was for him to not get into trouble and all the impacts it could have on him and his family. He was very friendly to us but was very serious when in court. He told my son that taking a plea was not good for his future so he went to court for us. Watching him argue for my son made us feel like we got lucky getting appointed to him. Mr. Hawthorn even made my son practice shaking hands and introducing himself to people so that he would be more confident. Jack was appointed to my son by the court but if my family or friends ever need an attorney I will recommend him to everyone.

Mr. Hawthorne did a great job with my divorce and helped me get custody of my kids back. I felt like he really cared about my family and wanted to help. He even met me on a Saturday so that I wouldn't have to miss work!
