About Us

Hawley & McCadams, PLLC currently has three attorneys with over 90 years of combined experience that bring together a vast array of legal knowledge.  Our senior partner, W. Brown Hawley, II, began practicing law in 1971 and has continued to do so in the northwest Tennessee area.  He’s most well-known for his prowess as a divorce attorney but he has over the years represented thousands of clients in other areas such as probate, civil litigation, and criminal court.  Our managing partner, Robert W. Hawley, became licensed to practice law in Tennessee and Florida in 2003.  After passing both States’ bar exams, he moved back to his home town of Paris, Tennessee and has practiced in the northwest Tennessee area since January 2004.  His primary focus is criminal defense, personal injury, divorce/custody and juvenile matters.  In joining Brown and Robert in January 2016, Hansel J. McCadams entered the private practice of law for the first time in his career.  Despite having only been in private practice for a relatively short period of time, Hansel brings a different array of experience to the table.  He began his career as an assistant district attorney general in 1984 upon his graduation from law school.  He was elected Henry County General Sessions, Juvenile, and Probate Judge at the age of 30 in 1990 and served in that capacity for 16 years.  Upon leaving the bench, he was elected District Attorney General for the 24th Judicial District where he served Henry, Benton, Carroll, Decatur and Hardin Counties for 8 years.  He then worked as an Assistant District Attorney in Montgomery County for 18 months before transitioning over to private practice with the persuasion of Brown and Robert.

The attorneys at Hawley & McCadams, PLLC pride themselves in competent, thorough representation and work together to utilize their vast experience to achieve the best possible results for all of their clients. 

In addition to the three practicing attorneys, Hawley & McCadams, PLLC currently has four supporting staff members that are an integral part of the firm.  Hawley & McCadams, PLLC understands the importance of providing diligent, hands-on, representation to every client they serve and our support staff are an important part of that service.

Should you ever need legal assistance or representation, the attorneys and staff at Hawley & McCadams, PLLC would be honored to serve you.
