Charlie Hawkins


Charles A. (“Charlie”) Hawkins is an Of Counsel for employment law for Trusted Counsel. He is also the founder of The Hawkins Firm LLC. Charlie’s practice at Trusted Counsel focuses on compliance with Federal and State employment laws across the United States and related litigation.

Before starting his own firm, he represented companies in employment law matters with Fisher & Phillips (1987-2000).  At Troutman Sanders (2000 – 2016), he focused on business and employment litigation, employment contracts, restrictive covenant agreements and transactional employment issues.  He and his firm have won many awards, including 17 consecutive years as a Georgia “Super Lawyer.”

Charlie started The Hawkins Firm LLC in 2016 and began working as an Of Counsel for Trusted Counsel shortly thereafter. This came about after he met Trusted Counsel lawyers through a mutual client where they all realized that they shared the same devotion to client service and value and decided to work together on a regular basis.  Charlie is a graduate of the University of Florida College of Law (J.D. 1986) and Stetson University (B.S. 1984) and attended Davidson College.
