Evan R. Lawson (Paulo Costanzo) is Hank's highly amusing -- if slightly over-eager -- younger brother and business partner. Despite the brothers' constant stream of good-natured ribbing, it's clear they have nothing but love and respect for one another. In fact, Evan first recognized the business potential of Hank becoming a concierge doctor in the Hamptons, and he set up the HankMed practice. As their CFO, Evan's overseen HankMed's rise to the well-respected place they occupy in the community today - but not without experiencing a few bumps along the way.
As HankMed's business continues to grow, so does Evan. A striver with superficial aspirations when he first arrived in the Hamptons, Evan's grown into a responsible and mature young man - thanks in no small part to falling in love and marrying the adorable and loving Paige. As Evan gets ready to embark on this exciting new chapter of his personal life, a threat to HankMed's business forces Evan to divert all his energies towards a political battle with Blythe Ballard, a well-connected Hamptons insider.
Paulo Costanzo stars as Evan Lawson in the hit USA Network original series ROYAL PAINS.
