I highly recommend David Hawley
My case was not complicated, but I needed an attorney to handle the legal aspects of my separation. Mr. Hawley was very personable, he was diligent, and I felt like I received all of the attention needed to work through the matter in a timely manner.

Was very helpful!
I was sent to Mr. Hawley through Kansas legal aid, while fighting with my ex. I went in for my consultation, and he listened to every detail of everything going on. And with just an email, took care of the issue. He was quick, efficient, and after 2 other lawyers letting me down, I felt like I finally had someone in my corner. I will definitely be going back if there is another is, I don't care what the retainer is.

Highly Recommended: Client Advocate
Mr. Hawley worked with my family and I on an extremely sensitive child custody and child support case. I was truly impressed that he listened to my ideas and gave me honest feedback. With his extensive legal knowledge, we were able to create a course of action that defended my rights and stayed true to my interests. Additionally, Mr. Hawley walked me through the entire process. He answered all my questions and responded to messages very quickly. He was straight forward with where we were in the case and what would happen next. Most important to me, he was outstanding in the courtroom! He was very well prepared which allowed me to maintain primary custody of my child. Mr. Hawley is a true advocate for his clients. He understands family dynamics and keeps the focus on what is important, the child. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mr. David Hawley to anyone needing assistance with family law.

Experienced, Dedicated, Trustworty and Honest
I have been involved with the family court since 2008. I have been in and out of the family court room an estimated time of over 20 or more times. Within that time I have had 4 attorneys. David Hawley is my 4th attorney and let me say that being a person with limited means it was refreshing to find a well experienced and straight forward attorney. It was very important to me to find an attorney who I could build a client/attorney relationship with, whom I could trust and count on to actually put in the work and defend me, instead of taking me for the little money I had by coming up with frivolous matters that would draw out. David is truly the first attorney who has actually put in the work for me and proved that he was an experienced attorney. For the first time in 8 years I finally feel relived. My court issues have been resolved fairly. What makes David good at what he does is that he wants to know his clients and he really relates and understands the mental and financial stress that divorce and child custody can cause. David has really been a blessing and I appreciate all that he has done for me.

The best lawyer in Kansas
Atty. David Hawley is the best lawyer I have ever met in my life. He's just not a hardworking man but is also very smart and very good at what he's doing. He would never lie to you just to make you feel good or to hear what you want to hear. He will tell you straight forward what will happen. Not like other lawyers that will keep lying to you so you will be broke when your case is finished. He helped me from the beginning and stayed by my side till the case was done. I am very happy that I hired him and I would highly recommend him because you will not waste you time or money. He's really worth it.

Watch out
Right in the middle of the case David threatened to drop my case because of non payment. I had already paid him over $3500. He didn’t want to wait until it was all done. I had to plead with him not to. Very humiliating. I paid him in full.

Would not recommend
I hired David Hawley in April of 2016 for a fairly simple need that he confirmed would be quick and easy. He stated that he would be returning part of my retainer fee it was that easy. He went through my retainer in less than 2 months and drug the whole thing out until last month which was November of 2017. I could go on for hours. I would highly NOT recommend him to anyone. I am in the process of filing a complaint with the Kansas Bar Association and I would suggest that anyone reading this that has had the same issues do the same thing to protect others.
