#1 Lawyer
Hailey is a professional that is thorough and great with details. If I couldn’t get a hold of her on the phone, she was very responsive through email. She helped me win my custody case and honestly don’t believe I could have done it without her. I will highly recommend her to anyone.

The best around
This Lady handled a very difficult probate for me that no one else would touch. She is very efficient and detailed oriented. I think she got bored with my explanation because she picked up the details before I could explain. She has a great Paralegal and probate was completed in a timely manner.

Do yourself a favor, seek out Ms. Hawkins for all your family estate needs!!
Ms. Hawkins is an exceptional attorney. She listens carefully to your issues and lays out all the options. She encouraged me to try to resolve the challenges I faced on my own first, guiding me in the proper direction. After all channels were exhausted that I could manage, she then came on board as my attorney to stand beside me and to protect me. I've never met a more honest and sincere person. She made me feel that my safety and peace of mind were her upmost goals in the journey we took together. Emails, phone calls and updates were all promptly communicated to me, and her knowledge and confidentiality made me feel very safe and trusting with personal information. She will be your Lighthouse in the storm, should one come your way. Her beacon of light will help show you the way. I'm glad she is here for us!!

Nice, but difficult to reach and did not finish the job
Ms. Hawkins was recommended to me by Atty. Jim Stancil, whom my family has used and highly respected for years with real estate issues. I consulted Ms. Hawkins on a family law issue, and also to have my Health Care Power of Attorney changed. I had a very difficult time getting her on the phone to schedule an initial appointment. After leaving several messages, and not getting a call back, I waited 2 months and tried calling again, and was finally able to speak with her and set up an appointment. She was very friendly, and seemed highly knowledgeable, on this matter. She answered my questions and promised to revise my Health Care POA, and call me within a few days, to come in and sign. It has now been 3 weeks and I have called and spoken to the secretary asking about the new document, but have never heard back from her, or her office. I finally made other arrangements elsewhere, yesterday. She seemed lovely and capable, but is almost impossible to get hold of, and did not do what she promised to do for me! I thought her prices were very reasonable, however that really doesn't matter if you cannot reach her, or expect her to complete the job that she agreed to do.
