exceeded my expectations, One of the best attorneys in town
I usually never write reviews but after all the wonderful help and support that I received at the Law Offices of Hawkins -Melendrez, I felt that I needed to share my experience with others. I highly recommend anyone in need of an attorney to contact Geoffrey Hawkins. This is the second time that I needed representation from an attorney and quite frankly I was nervous because I had a horrible experience with my first attorney. I didn't know what to expect when I began searching for another attorneys but after contacting Mr. Hawkins I felt comfortable right from the beginning. He's a very knowledgeable,cordial and experienced attorney. he guided me from the first email we exchaged and then answered all my questions and concerns when we met in person. he explained every step of the way and what to expect during the process. Geoffrey Hawkins definitely exceeded my expectations in regards to settling my case. I would highly recommend Geoffrey Hawkins and best of all, the fees are as reasonable as you'll find!
