David has served as President of the Bar Association of the District of Columbia and Chair of its Young Lawyers Section. He led the BADC’s “Operation Crackdown” pro bono initiative to combat drug-related nuisances and organized events to educate attorneys, promote community service, instill collegiality, and advance diversity in the profession. Hawkins graduated from Dartmouth College and Duke University School of Law.
