In The Media:

In my fourteen years as a criminal defense attorney, I have handled some of Hawaii's most challenging cases. I believe that every individual, no matter how sensational the charge, is entitled to the best defense available. Let's face it, if you have been charged in a high profile case, odds are the media and the general public, and sometimes even your friends and family, have already convicted you. You need an advocate for you who isn't afraid of public opinion. An advocate willing to listen to YOUR story. An advocate fighting to present YOUR case and YOUR side. The last thing you need is an attorney who is intimidated by public opinion, the media, or the facts of your case.

I often get the question, "How can you represent Defendants charged with these kinds of crimes?" The answer is simple, I believe the presumption of innocence is more than just a slogan. I believe EVERY individual is entitled to the best possible defense. I believe that there are always two sides to every story and that sometimes people just need help getting their side out there. There is no case or subject matter that causes me to abandon these fundamental principles. Make sure you have an attorney who feels the same. While the law only requires that a defendant receive competence out of his or her attorney, YOU should demand excellence.
