In-house Volunteer Award
Tiffany A. Hawks
Tiffany Hawks worked at Her Justice for a year as a University of Miami School of Law Fellow and, from the beginning, she provided invaluable assistance to the legal staff and to our clients. She assisted the Fried Frank Fellow and assumed responsibility for several pending cases begun by a prior fellow—researching legal issues, drafting motions, conducting discovery and hearings, preparing for trial, negotiating settlements with opposing counsel and working directly with clients in Family Court and matrimonial matters. In one case, she successfully obtained a divorce for a client after conducting an inquest when the client’s husband failed to appear in court. Tiffany consistently excelled in her legal work, worked independently with minimal supervision and demonstrated a great commitment to the women she assisted, making her a valuable member of the Her Justice team.
