Wes Hawn is a bi-lingual (English/Spanish) attorney who joins the firm after twenty-one years of practice including eight years as an Assistant District Attorney. He is a native of Hickory, North Carolina and attended St. Stephens High School where he served as student body president his senior year. Wes was fortunate to travel a bit while growing up and developed an interest in the Spanish language, which he pursued while studying International Business and Spanish at Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, North Carolina. Between his sophomore and junior years at Lenoir-Rhyne, Wes lived in San Jose, Costa Rica and worked as an English teacher at a private school while becoming proficient in Spanish.

Wes met his wife Hannah while at Lenoir-Rhyne and decided against a career traveling far from home, so he decided to propose to Hannah and apply to law school. Two weeks after marrying his college sweetheart, they moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas, where he attended law school. During law school, Wes clerked three years at the Washington County, Arkansas Public Defender’s office.

After receiving his J.D. from the University of Arkansas in 1997, Wes and Hannah returned to North Carolina where he became an Assistant District Attorney prosecuting a variety of Criminal matters. In 2003, he left the District Attorney’s Office and went into private practice concentrating in criminal defense and representing a large number of Spanish speaking clients. In 2014, Wes returned to the District Attorney’s Office as a prosecutor where he worked for three more years until deciding it was time for a change. Wes is excited to bring his courtroom and trial experience to the Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor.

When not practicing law, Wes produces a podcast for an area business and enjoys hosting his own podcast. He and his wife, Hannah, along with their two children reside in Morganton.

"Eileen and Jason, There are no words to express the gratitude I feel for entrusting your law office with my MVA. I commend and admire your expertise wholeheartedly and with utmost respect. You and Jason have helped me so much so I can better focus on caring for my 3 year old daughter and one year old son. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for either of you now or in the future. N
