For more than 30 years, the Law Offices of Timothy H. Hankins has represented clients in civil and criminal cases throughout eastern Virginia. Over that time, in thousands of cases, our office has earned a reputation for hard work, honest communication and positive results. While our winning record is no guarantee of future success, we're committed to maintaining high standards for investigation and preparation, to give our clients every possible advantage in their legal disputes. While we hope your first meeting with Mr. Hankins is warm and reassuring, that is not the impression we make on opposing counsel. Our opponents know right away (if they don't know us already) that we don't just take cases, we make cases. Our in-depth investigation and detailed preparation lays the groundwork for a compelling and factually sound argument for your case. Once we build the case, we negotiate firmly from a position of strength. We have no fear of going to court, but can often resolve a case prior to trial. Because we have a reputation for being fully prepared at trial, we've received more than a few settlement offers on our way up the courthouse steps.
