Pike Road is Togetherness to Local Attorney

Ray Hawthorne has lived in and been actively involved in the Town of Pike Road for almost 13 years.

Ray started practicing law as an Assistant District Attorney for the 19th Judicial Circuit of Alabama in 2010. In 2015, Ray transitioned his practice to civil litigation and ultimately started his firm in 2022 with partners Thomas Atchison (Selma) and Rob Riddle (Prattville). Today, the firm Hawthorne, Atchison & Riddle, LLC, provides legal representation for personal injury claims and other general civil litigation focused in Central Alabama, but also throughout the entire State.

Ray says HAR Legal provides personal service to their clients and is accessible to their clients while working hard to gain real results for their clients. He and the other attorneys at the firm pride themselves on not only being excellent advocates for their clients, but also on being involved in the community in meaningful ways.

Their clients say they are grateful that the attorneys communicate well with them and are easy to reach. They also say they work hard to move their cases forward while achieving excellent outcomes.

Throughout his legal career, Ray has handled numerous criminal and civil matters throughout all phases of litigation, including research and writing, motion hearings, witness preparation, plea/settlement negotiations, and jury trials.
