As you can see, Hawthorne & Hawthorne is a general-practice law firm offering representation in a wide variety of areas. Our attorneys themselves are not generalists, however. It is hard for a general-practice attorney who will take any case that walks in the door to develop the depth of knowledge necessary to handle complex matters competently—and it isn’t helpful for you to hire “a jack of all trades and master of none.” That’s why each of our attorneys focuses on different practice areas. (And if the attorney that you first contact in our firm does not regularly handle your type of case, rest assured that he or she will be able to refer you to another attorney in our firm who does.)
For your convenience, our attorneys are available to travel to courthouses or otherwise assist clients with legal matters in most of Southside Virginia, including Amelia County, Appomattox County, Brunswick County, Buckingham County, Campbell County, Charlotte County, Cumberland County, Dinwiddie County, Halifax County, Lunenburg County, Mecklenburg County, Nottoway County, and Prince Edward County.
Many legal matters are time-sensitive. To schedule your consultation, contact one of our offices today!
