Michael Hawkins brings a wealth of trial experience to protecting the rights of those who have been injured. Perhaps more importantly, he brings the mindset of a relentless advocate who has fought against the State for many years, to now representing the rights of those who have been injured and are up against insurance companies and corporations that should be held accountable to compensate them as victims.
Hawkins is a trial lawyer with over 27 years of experience. Hawkins cut his teeth as an advocate for victims as prosecutor, where early in his career he served as an Assistant Solicitor in DeKalb County, and an Assistant District Attorney in Rockdale County. After several years of representing the State of Georgia in criminal cases, he was made an offer he couldn’t refuse by a defense lawyer whom he had tried several cases against. The offer was to leave prosecution, and to undertake to protect the rights of those accused of DUI and related cases.
That was more than 20 years ago. Since then, Hawkins left that practice in 2008 to start his own law firm, and over a period of years rose to the top of his profession in the DUI defense arena. He established a national reputation as one of the most formidable lawyers in the country willing to take on the government and law enforcement where citizens have been wrongfully accused. He became board certified in DUI defense in 2001, and remains one of only four lawyers in Georgia to achieve board certification. He has taught lawyers trial techniques in 15 states and served as the Dean of the National College for DUI Defense in 2018. It is with great enthusiasm that Hawkins is now taking his trial skills to the arena of helping victims obtain justice for their injuries.
The insurance company lawyers are familiar with Hawkins, as he has been named a Super Lawyer for the last 15 years, and is listed among the Top 100 Super Lawyers in Georgia by Atlanta Magazine for the last several years. Hawkins has also been named to the coveted Best Lawyers in America publication established by U.S. News & World Report, and his law firm, Hawkins Spizman Fortas, is among the Tier 1 firms in the similar edition of Best Law Firms in America.
