It is great to have one law firm that offers as many services as you do. Definitely a five-star operation. Your guidance over the last few years has been of great help and a peace of mind for us. You are our firm of choice for all services needed. Thanks for all you do.

Charles Arrowood

I would like to thank Sara Parker of this law firm. She made this process much less stressful for me. She was always quick to listen and respond. I really appreciate her! Thanks again, Sara!!

Martha Adams

Highly recommend for POA and Will + Estate planning!

We were recommended to them because of their experience and expertise setting up wills and trusts, especially in complicated situations. Hailey is our attorney here. From initial consultation to the final signing process, she couldn’t make the process any easier in a step-by-step approach. She understood the challenges and how to break each one down with ease.

Our situation included a disabled daughter (including how to navigate where she is dependent on social programs), our other daughter, grand kids, a second property, multiple streams of retirement funds, our primary property, numerous person possessions, kids that might not agree on who should get what.. Hailey addressed each one and presented possible solutions for each situation for us to take back and decide on. We had everything wrapped up in three physical appointments (including the initial consult), along with the homework we performed in between each visit. Wonderful, straight forward experience!

Hailey’s experience, along with the entire team, were amazing. This is a fantastic family like environment. Everyone matters. It was a breath of fresh air working with them. I’m very proud of the women here and their representation of us! I feel we have our trusted advisors for life, and looking after our family after our lives.

We will be back for our other real estate and other family practice needs!

Richard Honeycutt

Hailey Hawkins is an excellent lawyer. When my husband died she has done a wonderful job on his estate and since he had no will things were very complex she handled it like a pro I will be using this law firm for life.

Dondra Ballard

Thank you so much for all you have done to coordinate my mom’s estate.  You took something that seemed so overwhelming to me and made got it organized and seamlessly completed. I know it was a big task and I appreciate all of the time you put into it. You answered all of my questions and concerns and responded promptly. But most of all, you were very professional, caring, and compassionate which is what I appreciated the most.


I went through legal aid and they introduce me to Joy. She was a blessing, I didn’t know if I was coming or going. My main concern was my children and making sure we were safe. Joy and Sara both were there when I was losing it and completely falling apart. Very caring and kind person. If you are needing a Lawyer in family law, Joy is your answer. Thank you all for your help when I was in need of guidance.

Johnnie Hughes

I have used this Law Firm for buying my house and also upgrading last will and testament. My wife is a real big critic about customer service. And when she says they were very good of taking care of her and my daughter I knew this firm was top-notch. I also know that they do excellent seminars and programs to help educate people on the importance of taking care of their legal concerns.

I recommend Stott, Hollowell, Windham & Stancil, PLLC without hesitation to anyone looking for quality legal representation they can truly count on. With this firm, you can trust its experienced team to work hard on your behalf to get you the outcome you desire.

Lyall Newby

Closing went quickly and smoothly. Enjoyed meeting the attorney and paralegals. Great staff.

Tonya Bartlett

Very helpful and kind staff. Very empathetic and understanding. Hawkins is a 24k pitbull. And she will be your backbone until you find yours. Amazing women, works hard for her clients!

Chelsea Johnson

Attorney Hegedus took care of a real estate closing for us and zipped us through the process quickly but you can clearly tell that he was running an experienced eye over every document before we signed.

His staff was equally sharp and on top of the documents. We also dealt a bit with Atty Stancil with whom we have had prior business experience. He is great to deal with as well.

We have used them now for wills, power of attorney for an elderly family member, this real estate closing and to successfully arrange a favorable outcome for us when sued by an unscrupulous general contractor here in Gaston County.

I highly recommend their office for counsel!

Tom White

The attorneys at HHS are highly detailed. But, more importantly, they run their practice from the heart first. Hailey and Stephen are some of the most caring people I know and it shows in everything they do.

Drew Horine

We came to this law firm after fighting in court for a long while in a complicated custody/adoption case. We started out with Hailey Hawkins who is amazing and finally made headway in our case. Then Joy took over In the adoption process which went fairly well with no big surprises she was knowledgeable and did a great job. This will be my family’s law firm as long as they practicing law. You could not find better people or a better law firm just wanted to say thank you for our new family and thanks to our new extended family at Stott, Hollowell, Windham & Stancil, PLLC.

Erik Ralston

This firm is a community-based law firm that truly hears the needs of its clients. From Estate Planning, Estate Administration, Real Estate law, Family law & Business Structure law, the whole team thrives on being connected to its clients. Not only do they excel in all areas they practice, they actually answer the phone when you call or call back in almost no time. That’s crazy customer service in the legal industry!! If you want that feel of a group of lawyers putting your interests first, then these are the people to call. Highly recommend them!

Brian Johnson

Very trustworthy. I had reached out to Joy for a consultation. Once they found out I would have to file in a county that’s 1 hour away from their office, they recommended I save the travel fees and hire a different lawyer. Both Joy and Stephen took the time out of their day to find me not one, but two different lawyers in the county I needed. That type of honesty and customer service makes me believe they are an amazing firm to work with!

Riley Lewis

This firm is very knowledgeable about real estate, family, and wills/estate/trust law. Our refi closing couldn’t have gone smoother. We were informed at each step in the process, and we were in and out on signing day. We felt very well taken care of, and I know that’s how they treat everyone.

Robert Aldrich

I’ve used Stephen Hegedus for probably 20+ closings for my business. The communication is second to none. Title work always gets done quickly and they are incredibly accommodating with the inevitable last minute schedule changes.

Hailey Hawkins is phenomenal on the estate planning and elder law side as well. I’ve trusted her with my own and my mother’s estate planning. I would recommend her to anyone looking to plan for their family’s future.

Brandon Kauffman

Joy was great at explaining and keeping me apprised of the separation negotiations and divorce process. She was quick to point out legal verbiage, that the opposing lawyer had slipped into the separation agreement, which would have adversely affected me in the long run, and had it promptly removed. There’s no way I would have caught it, had I attempted to go about the process on my own and simply signed the papers given to me. I highly recommend!


I highly recommend Hailey Hawkins for all your estate planning needs. Hailey was excellent to work with, really listened to our needs and even traveled to us for the signing. She created a will, durable POA, living trust and has been a tremendous help through my husband’s probate process. They’ve recently opened up an office at 10917 Black Dog Lane, just a few doors away from Edward Jones.


I was married for 25 years. Never thought I would be in a situation to need a divorce attorney. Unfortunately, I had no idea what to do, how a divorce would impact my life, etc. I was very fortunate to have found Joy and her team. They were supportive, informative and very knowledgeable. I am so grateful for them helping me during this very stressful and emotional time. They fought for me and what I was entitled to. Joy and her team did not just do their job, they made me feel secure and informed about the process. If you find yourself in this situation and want someone to be in your side for all the right reasons, Joy is definitely the attorney for you.
