Great Guy
I met John Hawley when I was attending college. He is a very caring and understanding individual. Now that we are states apart, he still reaches out to me and makes sure I am doing well. He treated me like a son. I am positive he provides the same attitude and energy for his clients too.

Defense Attorney
John Hawley was a tremendous help to me in my defense. He clearly explained my situation to me, explained what my options were and offered guidance and suggestions as to what option I should choose based on the result I was looking for. John was super helpful in guiding me through the process and I would recommend him to anyone that needs his services. John continues to check in from time to time which in my opinion is above and beyond anything I would have expected.

Professional and Experienced
I was treated with full respect the minute I scheduled an appointment and still am comfortable contacting the office if I have any further questions, even if it after my case. It was a great experience overall and highly recommend Attorney Hawley.

Experienced Lawyer
I have used John's vast knowledge and connections in the Madison area twice now. Each time John has produced results that have exceeded my expectations. John's unique combination of being so down to earth and professional at the same time has produced a great relationship between the two of us. John not only kept me informed throughout the legal process, but continues to follow up showing how much he cares about his clients.

Great Attorney!
Attorney Hawley was wonderful! I used Attorney Hawley's services a couple of times for traffic tickets and ordinance violations and I could not be happier! He always kept me informed and up to date with the details of my cases. He is very knowledgeable and aggressive in his defense. He exceeded my expectations with my tickets and I was extremely happy with the outcome.

An Awesome Attorney!
I was pulled over for speeding. When I met with Attorney Hawley he explained every step to me and made sure I understood. He kept me informed as my case was pending. My case was closed quickly and I was happy with my results. The points were lowered as well as the cost.

Knowledgeable and Helpful Attorney
John Hawley was very helpful to me. I received felony citation a while ago and was confused and worried about what could happen to me. Mr. Hawley helped me to understand all the possible outcomes and resolutions with my case and got me a resolution that I am very happy with. I was definitely recommend him to any of my family and friends.

Job Well Done
I had two misdemeanor tickets which Attorney Hawley took care of for me. He was always able to answer my questions and was very responsive. He worked diligently for me and got both my tickets reduced. I recommend him very much.

Great lawyer!
John helped me with my Powers of Attorney before I went to college. He explained everything and made sure I understood the freedoms and limitations of the documents.

Tough Case
Attorney Hawley worked hard for me so that I would not do prison time. After me 2.5 years of probation, he had the judge reduce my felony to a misdemeanor.

Would go with John Hawley Again
Attorney John Hawley first assisted me as a public defender while I was in high school. A few years later when I required legal help again I went to Hawley. Both times he was able to get me favorable results. Hawley, from my experience, is a dedicated lawyer who will work hard for his clients. I strongly recommend him as a civil lawyer.

Very rude and disrespectful
Attorney john hawley is beyond rude, and disrespectful. I simply was calling to schedule an appointment not discuss a case or any information. I would say a word and he would interrupt with maam im not talking to you and all i wanted to do was schedule the appointment for him to meet with my daughter to discuss the case since the work schedule is nuts. He just was rude and would not stop talking for even a second for me to explain that i dont want information i am just trying to schedule the appointment so it gets on the books. I have never been so insulted in my life.

Unprofessional & Rude
Very unprofessional and rude. Consulted John Hawley for my case. Instead of listening, he consistently interrupted me by cutting me off or talking over me. He acted like I was wasting his time. Told me he would get back to me and never did.
