Great guy and great attorney
Hired Chip when he was practicing in Valparaiso, IN and have continued to use him for corporate matters. Great service in a timely manner. Rare find these days!

Very Professional
We came to him for guidance on starting a business. He listened to us and cared about what we wanted to do, I would recommend Chip to anyone who needs help.

Knowledgeable and Trustworthy
We first used Mr. Owens last year while doing our estate planning. He was very helpful, knowledgeable and explained the process to us. He was prompt when returning our phone calls and answering our questions. We've also used him for other matters and he puts our mind at ease and keeps us informed/up to date on our case. We highly recommend Mr. Owens.

You definitely want these guys on your side for anything from business, firearms issues to family law. Thanks!
I've used Chip Owens and his firm of Hauk & Owens for not only my business legal needs, but also my personal will and trust formation. These guys are very down-to-earth, trustworthy and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend them to anyone on a wide range of legal needs from FOID and firearms related issues, to business topics, to family law.
