Eric Hawkins, at his office, the Calhoun Building located in uptown on Hennepin.

When you're facing court or charges, you have to ask yourself if the lawyer who is representing you is qualified. You have to ask if the lawyer has won cases. You have to ask if they can represent you with the best an attorney can offer. 


Eric Hawkins, P.A. 

Ethical,  Aggressive Private Attorney

University of Minnesota Law School | Juris Doctorate

University of California at Berkeley | Bachelor of arts, legal studies

Not only does Eric have the academic background to bolster his practice, but he also delivers incredible results at trial and in the courtroom.

In the legal world, Eric is a rockstar. An elder colleague of Eric's commended him upon his victory in using a pivotal defense argument, to which the colleague said "Congratulations Eric — only four cases in the history of Minnesota have successfully been argued using the tactic you have -- well done." The breadth of Eric's knowledge comes from the expansive types of cases he handled throughout.

After graduating from the prestigious U of M Law School Eric began serving as law clerk for a Hennepin County District Court Judge in downtown Minneapolis, then later he served as Assistant Ramsey County Attorney where Eric worked as a prosecutor on behalf of the State, trying every sort of charge from low-level to the highest degree crimes. You want someone who has been on the other side, the prosecution— someone who has intimate knowledge of prosecution strategies that may be used against you.

Eric transitioned to criminal defense as a public defender for two years with Anoka County. He progressed quickly to the Adult Felony Division, and then moved to Hennepin County for three more years of criminal defense as a public defender with the Adult Felony Trial Team at the Hennepin County Public Defender’s Office in downtown Minneapolis. 

After years of public service conducting intensive criminal defense work, ranging from DWIs to Fraud to Homicide, Eric started a private criminal defense practice, and has a tremendous record.
