I served three terms as a Maui County Grand Jury Counsel. I was a board member and Secretary of the Maui County Bar Association. I have received a pro bono service award from the Volunteer Lawyers of Hawaii, and was recognized by the Hawaii State Legislature for representing individuals with limited incomes. I have previously served as one of the two Hawaii delegates to the American Association of Justice and am a ‘past’ board member of the Hawaii Association of Justice, formerly known as the Consumer Lawyers of Hawaii.
My law practice also involves appeals and I am admitted to practice before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the Supreme Court of the United States, as well as all Federal and State courts in Hawaii. I have handled some sixty plus appeals and have a number of published decisions. I have argued in front of the Hawaii Supreme Court prevailing in 3 cases and waiting on a decision in a forth case. Outside my law practice, I am a part-time musician and surfer, and spent several seasons as an American Youth Soccer Organization coach.
