Attorney Hawkins impressed me as an extremely knowledgable attorney. He was easy to talk with, had a good grasp of the variables involved in each option we discussed, and was quite personable.
Unfortunately, once I signed the retainer agreement and paid my deposit I had great difficulty in getting him to respond to me by either email or phone call. I sent 3 emails over a 2 week period with no response. I was then out of town for 3 weeks with still no response. Upon my return I made 4 phone calls in 5 days & sent 2 additional emails, without hearing from him. I finally only got a response after threatening to contact the Nevada Bar Assoc. with a complaint.
Only then did I receive a brief email response which did not address the question I had posed regarding my case. He offered no apology or explanation for the previous lack of response, and suggested we set a meeting for the following week. During the 3 months he represented me, I never received a statement of account and although I have requested a refund of my retainer, I fear I'll never see that money again.
I cannot recommend this attorney. He and his entire office were extremely unprofessional and unresponsive.
