Mr. Hawkins worked to provide a satisfactory outcome for us with an insurance claim against a contractor. It was a lengthy process, but he kept us well informed and was very respectful of our wishes and we believe he worked for our best interest. We recommend his services to others needing legal intervention .

Great job
I had a bad motorcycle accident in 2006. I retained David Hawkins for my lawyer. It was a complicated case which required a great attorney to accept the challenges. David was our man. He worked with us from the beginning to the end and he made sure we received the maximum payout for our case. He even worked with the hospital to reduce our hospital cost from our settlement due to the permanent injuries I received. He was more than fair on his fees and worked closely with us through out the process. Because of his skills as a litigator, we were able to settle without going to court. I also used his services on a reckless driving ticket that was thrown out of court. If you want a great attorney that looks out for his client, Use David Hawkins.

Simply The Best
There are lots of lawyers, many that are good, but few, very few, are truly great. He understands the law far better than most, AND comes to court completely prepared! He simply wins his cases. I have been using him for well over forty years.

General Practice
David's knowledge of the law is second to none. He has been our family's attorney for more than 30 years. He has prepared wills, deeds and other legal documents. David has also represented members of our family in civil and criminal/traffic matters and always obtained the best possible outcome in each situation. There is no one we trust more to handle our legal affairs.

Was very up front and honest with me about my situation. However he went to bat for me and came up with the best possible solution. Great criminal attorney and great man. I hope to not ever need a criminal attorney again but if I did I would use Mr. Hawkins.
