I was referred to Bob by a mutual friend. As I negotiated a professional service contract, I needed Bob's clarity and perspective in the offer and contract. Bob was timely and repeatedly responsive with reviewing negotiations and documents. I was very happy with his service. I recommend him highly.

Bob assisted me through a recent estate probate and I appreciated his expertise throughout the process. He was not only very knowledgeable about the probate process itself but was extremely helpful in providing me with resources needed in order to settle the estate.
He and Vicki were quick to respond to questions and provide me with information and all required documents. They were able to make the transactions understandable and seamless which was greatly appreciated during an otherwise stressful period. I wholeheartedly recommend Bob Hawkinson's services for anyone seeking an attorney with vast knowledge of estate and probate law.

Robert provided the best legal advice in dealing with a probate of a relative. Questions and issues were promptly answered and mitigated. Never once did I have to wait for more than a couple of hours (using e-mail) on answers to my many questions forwarded to Robert and Vicki (assistant). Their follow-up to my emails and phone calls was timely, accurate and to the point. All advice and action on handling the estate was taken and executed with satisfactorily results. The processing of legal documentation was efficient and timely. (They did much of the 'leg-work' that I thought I would have to do and I greatly appreciated that.) There was no way that I could have done this on my own. It was a joy to work with both Robert and Vicki. I have used Robert Hawkinson on previous legal matters all with positive results. My description of Robert and Vicki are integrity, honesty, trust, helpful and looking out for the client. I would strongly recommend Robert Hawkinson Law.

I have known Bob Hawkinson for over 30 years. We worked with many of the same attorneys. All the attorneys universally had high regard for Bob's knowledge, intelligence, diligence and character. Bob moved over to the "other side of the water" but we have remained in touch and still confer or consult with one another in our respective areas of practice. I strongly endorse Bob.
I endorse this lawyer. Bob advised me on a real estate and also a business contract matter and was exemplary as an attorney in every way - knowledgeable, responsive, professional, personable, and communicative. I have had complete confidence in his capability and without hesitation would go back to him for future matters. His colleague Vicki assisted in making all matters go forward seamlessly.
