Hello, my name is Jeff Hawkins. I would like to thank you for your interest in having my law firm assist you with your legal matter.

90% of my legal practice is focused on domestic relations law which includes divorces, dissolutions, legal separations, annulments, child support, spousal support, child custody, child visitation, grandparent rights, and similar types of family law issues. I’ve included a comprehensive list of my practice related to domestic relations law below.

I’ve been an attorney for 30 years and have helped hundreds of people with all kinds of domestic relations matters.

Ohio Domestic Attorney Jeff Hawkins

More About Jeff

I’m originally from Birmingham, Michigan just outside of Detroit. I attended the Ohio State University for two years and graduated from Youngstown State University with degrees in Economics and Political Science. I received my law degree from Ohio Northern University, Pettit College of Law.

My father’s dream was to become an attorney and that’s what really sparked my interest. He had attended Harvard Law School but answered the call of World War II and joined the U.S. Army. He was never able to finish his legal education. While a part of me wanted to fulfill my father’s dreams, my legal practice is so much more than that. It’s about helping my clients make their lives better using my legal skills and experience.
