Although family law can be one of the most challenging areas of law for people as it literally hits closest to home, Falls Church divorce attorney Erica Chua Hawkins strives to bring dignity, ethics, and respect to the process.
Being involved in any type of legal matter can be a stressful and bewildering experience, and this can be even more true for a family law matter.
“If an attorney can translate the legal process to the client in the way the client can understand, then the client can truly make informed decisions and feel more in control of their case and their life,” Ms. Hawkins said.
Often, society places heavy expectations on people that if a marriage or relationship does not work out, people should somehow feel ashamed or feel as if they have failed. Ms. Hawkins eschews that notion.
“As an attorney, I try to help people chart the best course possible through a difficult situation; doing my part to help resolve the legal issues so they can be free to move on with their lives,” she said.
