About me

Welcome. My practice is one that keeps me in the courtroom -- that is where I like to be most of the time. In both Family Law and immigration, the stakes are relatively high -- in the first instance, the welfare of children often hangs in the balance and in the second, the issue of whether or not a hopeful immigrant or refugee can stay in this country wil be decided. In both cases, hopes and dreams seem to be at the core of the dispute and it is this nuance that motivates my passion for my work.


Dave Hawkins has been the sole owner and operator of the Law office of Dave Hawkins for the past 5 years. He actively litigates cases throughout Washington State, concentrating in Snohomish, King and Kitsap counties. Mr. Hawkins enjoys representing individuals in family law proceedings and immigration matters involving deportation proceedings as well as the submission of various petitions to the USCIS to help immigrants who wish to live in the Untied States. He has an active Russian clientele and is actively seeking to open up the courts to individuals who traditionally have been excluded from the courts in their home country.  Mr. Hawkins also argues cases before the Court of Appeals.


Mr. Hawkins' law practice emphasizes divorce and family law, adoptions, both foreign and domestic, international child abduction, immigration matters, and representing the interests of those who have requested asylum from the persecution they have suffered in their home country.  Mr. Hawkins is active in advancing the rights of Russian immigrants and citizens who seek to invoke the power of the court to for protection.


Mr. Hawkins' interest in oral advocacy is long standing. During his undergraduate days and in Law School, Mr. Hawkins took it upon himself to hone his oral advocacy skill be participating in debating societies and the National Moot Court competition..  Mr. Hawkins seeks to keep those skills sharp by participating locally in Toast Masters and is a Member of the Masonic order.
