Divorce and family law attorneys in Hawaii seek to negotiate solutions

Our lawyers are skilled negotiators and advocates.  We work with clients going through a divorce or dealing with issues of child custody and child support. We also offer divorce mediation services. In all cases, we try to avoid litigation when possible, and instead focus on negotiation between the parties to reach an optimal result. When negotiation isn’t enough, we vigorously represent our clients’ interests in court.

We represent parties in landlord/tenant disputes and other lease and contract matters. We also work with Homeowners Associations (HOA), Associations of Apartment Owners (AOAO), property owners and others who need legal assistance. When you have problems with a tenant or need help enforcing a covenant or restriction, we can help. We also assist individuals who have experienced unfair or unlawful treatment.
