Melissa Nicole Hawkins

About me

I am so blessed to have the privilege to advocate for families in Georgia. In my practice of restructuring families, I have had the opportunity to represent both husbands and wives and mothers and fathers in their divorces, legitimations, child custody matters, child support modifications and paternity actions. These representations include the prosecution and defense of these matters. While every case is different, many of the cases are ripe for resolution short of litigation. However, some of them must be litigated to the fullest extent in a courtroom. When you decide to hire Albury & Hawkins you are investing in attorneys who recognize that this is already a difficult time in your life and you need intelligent legal counsel with true compassion.  I offer this delicate balance of strong and tenacious representation with comfort and respect for the very delicate subject matter. I work hard to ensure that the legal process understood so you can be prepared.
