Hawaii Litigation Law Firm
Put Our Litigation Experience to Work for You
Our litigators have extensive experience in the courtroom as well as in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) proceedings and in court-mandated and voluntary arbitrations. When our clients face legal disputes, we seek the most cost-effective resolution that is in our client's best interests.
When working with us, you will have the confidence that comes from having an experienced trial lawyer who also has an in-depth knowledge of the Hawai'i and Pacific Rim business environment. As a full-service litigation law firm, we will litigate local and international cases; small disputes and large, complex lawsuits; corporate disputes and family law disputes; white collar crime allegations; and real estate and construction disagreements.
