Karl has been assisting my family for several years now. He helped my parents with their estate planning and trust. He has always been available when we contacted him and is very knowledgeable in what he does. He also assisted with the Guardianship of my sister. I would not hesitate to contact Karl for assistance in the future and highly recommend him to anyone seeking a professional, knowledgeable and thorough attorney.

I have consulted with Karl Hawkins on several matters, primarily real estate law. His counsel has invariably been extemely helpful, and has allowed me to successfully navigate issues with contractors, financial institutions, and tenants. His legal knowledge is clearly based on extensive experience and expertise, where he has repeatedly warned me in advance of pitfalls that, when they came up, I succesfully dealt with.

I have found Karl not only to be very professional, but also personable and able to translate complex legal issues into understandable implications, and then prssent options and next steps for me to consider.

His communication has been better than any other attorney I've used: He always responds quicky to all questions, emails, and calls, and is flexible with scheduling follow ups.

Regarding billing, he is always very fair, where for example when simple questions are answered through a quick call, I'm not aggresively billed as I have been with other attorneys.

I highly recommend Karl.

Even though I had been paying on a delinquent account the creditor chose to sue me. Mr. Hawkins successfully negotiated with the creditor and kept the issue out of court. His skill at negotiating is excellent. He was easy to talk to and explained what was happening in a in a friendly, courteous manner. I highly recommend him.

My husband and I are expecting our first child and wanted to make sure we had our affairs in order in the event of any unfortunate circumstances. Karl Hawkins was extremely thorough, professional, and personable. The process of creating our estate planning was very clear and manageable (particularly in a high stress time for us!), and our communication was straightforward as well as pleasant. We highly recommend his legal services!

I contacted M.Karl Hawkins to establish a Power of Attorney and a Will prior to a surgery I was going to undergo in little over a week. To say I was a little frantic is an understatement. I am only 52 and over all a healthy person but felt the need to put something in place before a major surgery to protect my two adult children. Everyone at M. Karl Hawkins was friendly and sensitive to my request and acted swiftly to assist me. They were able to accommodate me with a consultation in two days. I had a Trust, Last Will and Testament, Living Will, General Durable Power of Attorney, Health Care Declaration, Deed of Gift, Personal Property Memorandum and Instructions and Beneficiary Deed in place within one week. I didn't realize how exceptional this was until I spoke with other people that had gone through this process and it took them several weeks. I would absolutely recommend M. Karl Hawkins and his Staff. They didn't just get the job done, they got the job done right!
