Technology and competition have forced tremendous change in the business of law. Law libraries are now decorations. Sophisticated clients have more choices than ever. The Hawkins Firm thrives on that disruption.

Why should you hire us?

Our lawyers are efficient, responsive and experienced.  The firm’s two Partners average more than 35 years of practice in major law firms, but at hourly rates similar to what some firms charge for associates.  You will not miss the marble lobby.

Mike Kaufman joined The Hawkins Firm about three years after its inception. Prior to The Hawkins Firm, Mike and Charlie were law Partners for more than 15 years at a major law firm.  Which means that they would not be doing this unless they really knew, liked and respected each other.

Sometimes, your matter needs additional resources or it may not be a matter that we are best suited to handle.  We can call on additional resources when needed.  Don’t be offended if we decline your case or refer you to other attorneys.



Many law firms focus on representing either the “Plaintiff” or “Defendant.” That’s not how we roll. U.S. News & World Report/Best Lawyers® recognizes us for representing both management and individuals in employment matters in Atlanta. We are proud of that rare combination.

We represent entrepreneurs, executives, professionals and established companies in a variety of settings, including professional services such as  medicine, accounting, engineering and law; traditional industries such as utilities, banking, finance, insurance, manufacturing, media, hospitality and retail; and technology businesses in the medical, computer, internet, information and alternative energy spaces. To name a few.

Our clients are selective in choosing their attorney. We are also selective in choosing our clients. We want clients seeking a durable relationship with their lawyer, focused on seizing business and employment opportunities and avoiding legal entanglements.


Compare our experience, expertise and cost to any other law firm, large or small.
