Our firm

Most private individuals only come into contact with solicitors during a stressful time in their lives, for example:- moving house, going through a divorce, losing a loved one, or being taken to court to name but a few.

At Hawkins Ryan we recognise that, at such times, clients are vulnerable and sometimes need considerable support. That’s why we invest so much time and energy in our workload but also why we believe it is so important to help clients through what may be a traumatic period in their lives.

We believe that’s the “difference” at Hawkins Ryan.


Since 1919 Hawkins Ryan has been providing legal services to King's Lynn, Norfolk and further afield. With over 100 years of experience we match traditional values with modern practices. At the heart of our organisation's successful history has been it's people, ever since Alan George Hawkins opened in King's Lynn High Street in 1919 and that remains true to today with our current team lead by Paul Sheerin and Andrew Stevenson.


It is important to us that our clients are informed about the legal costs associated with the work they instruct us to carry out for them so there are no surprises for them.
