Excellent Attorney
Attorney Hankins is a man of standards and honesty. He is handling a personal injury case for my daughter. He has given her the upmost respect and has guided her in the right direction during this process. He has also handle another case for us and was very successful at getting the results we needed. I would highly recommend Attorney Hankins for any legal matter you may be facing.

Great Attorney
Mr. Hankins has a realistic and honest view. His vast knowledge and extensive well rounded experience put our minds at ease when our son got into some trouble. I would go to Mr. Hankins for help should we ever need his assistance again.

Highly recommended
Mr. Hankins has help myself with neurmous cases, all have turned out in my favor with cases being completely dropped or a minimal un-surpervised probation for a 1 year period to then after completion of probation the charges be dropped. These cases ranged from simple misdemeanors to serious charges which could have led myself to be labeled as a felon; although Tim's wittiness save myself from facing the ramifications of the courts. I highly recommend him and I still remember his number by heart for that un-foreseen instance I get another charge. He is a doer and doesn't poke around the subject and can make an officer even doubt himself/herself of what actually happened at the time of arrest. For example, I was 20 years old, 2 months away from being 21, and I caught an underage possession of alcohol charge while fishing, I blantely told the marine police officer I purchased the beer since he stated if no one owned up to it myself as well as my friends would all get a charge, in court the officer showed pictures of the beer in the rear of my truck bed and told the judge I had admitted to purchasing the beer, Mr. Hankins then went on to perceive the marine police officer to be a total num-nuts and cross-examine him in a way that made plenty of loopholes in the officers story. Then the judge ruled the case be dismissed and to the officer who wrote the citation as well as all of the other officers in the court at the moment were stunned at the verdict since I had admitted to purchasing the alcohol and it was in my possession.
