  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Defective stairways
  • Balcony and porch collapses
  • Damaged or uneven sidewalks, paths and parking lots
  • Unstable merchandise displays
  • Malfunctioning elevators or escalators
  • Unsafe or unmonitored swimming pools
  • Exposure to hazardous or toxic materials
  • Unsafe parking lots resulting from poor lighting or broken security cameras

Client Reviews
I've known Phil for over 4 years now and have always been very happy with his service to me. Anytime I had questions or issues Phil would always find me the answers I needed and always in a timely and professional manner. I never had a problem with him returning my calls even at odd hours. He was a tremendous help to me and still is and I was very pleased with the outcome. I fully understand that I was not his only client but he still always found time to talk to me when I needed him and to reassure me when I stressed over my situation. Angela D.
I had Phil Hawkins as my attorney on several cases and have been extremely satisfied with his services. Him and his staff kept me informed and up to date on every step. He was very professional and very knowledgeable on all my cases over the past 5 years. My future was looking pretty dim there for awhile because of my injuries and age but Mr Hawkins came through and I can now relax. I found him and his staff very polite, courteous and compassionate to my circumstances and the final results were very satisfying. Frederick J.
I am very grateful for the support of the Hawkins Law Firm. It is not common to walk into law firm and be greeted by a dog! However, as it is only in a time of crisis that one needs to seek out the help of an attorney - I found this to be a very unique and helpful comfort! Not only did Mr. Hawkins take the time to address all of my questions and concerns; but the warm and welcoming environment of his law firm, along with his staff, made an otherwise stressful situation a overall less overwhelming experience.
