Taking the first step in a serious legal case can sometimes be the hardest part. Simply contacting a lawyer can seem overwhelming. You may want time to grieve or physically recover from a serious accident. We understand. That’s why we never put pressure on people.
When you contact us and schedule a free consultation, you’ll notice the difference right away. We don’t dictate what you should do. We listen. Then we work with clients to develop a legal strategy that suits their specific needs. We believe strongly in communicating clearly with clients. We’re on the same team.
That’s why we strongly encourage you to contact us as soon as possible. The sooner people start the legal process after inccident, the better. Delaying taking action could affect the outcome of your case.
Our practice has an extensive history of long-standing relationships with law firm clients built on integrity, first-rate service, timely delivery and relevant advice.
Every case is different. Past results are in no way intended to imply that a similar result can be obtained in a case. But past results do indicate a firm’s experience when it comes to serious catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases. Our attorneys represent clients in a variety of practice areas, including consultation, negotiation, litigation, car accident, birth injury, brain injury, defective product, drug injury, motorcycle accident, nursing home abuse, personal injury, Social Security disability, spinal cord injury, traffic ticket, truck accident, and much more.
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.
Powell Williams joined The Walter Charles Law 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 our clients. We are proud of that.
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
Our firm is like family. We truly believe that each case is someone’s life and we need to treat it as such.
Results are only successful when we make a difference in your life. We’ll help you get the money and benefits.
