About
I am the owner of a solo law office and have been practicing law since 2012. Prior to opening up my practice, I worked at two of the more prestigious law firms in Honolulu, Hawaii. I am licensed in both California (#316051) and Hawaii (#9694). I have primarily been a civil litigator in my practice, which provides a great basis for dealing with almost any problems that clients may have. I have dealt with a wide range of problematic issues, including trusts & estates, probate, contract disputes, negotiable instruments, and construction defects. I have also worked on many transactional projects such as lease drafting, real estate due… read more diligence, and administrative applications.

His experience as a litigator has been invaluable because it often enables him to highlight elements in our transactional needs that may prove problematic if litigation were to arise in the future. Overall, we highly recommend David."
