    Ms. Hawkins handled my case with very short notice. Was able to do the impossible to protect my 14 year old daughter from a molester. She also could recognize that I was actually in the right and was doing what any parent would do to keep my child safe. She gave me the truth and advised me of the correct choice I should make for the children. She is an outstanding lawyer and I would recommend her to anyone!
