Kauai Estate Law, LLLC is a single-member Limited Liability Law Company, owned and managed by attorney Cynthia Hannah-White.
Cynthia is licensed to practice law in Hawaii and New York, and is a
member of the Kauai Bar Association, the Probate and Estate Planning
section of the Hawaii State Bar Association, and WealthCounsel.
Cynthia graduated from Cornell Law School, magna cum laude, in 1992.
She was a court attorney and confidential legal assistant to two highly
respected New York State justices for 16 years. In these positions
Cynthia gained a strong knowledge of courtroom procedure and litigation
strategy and tactics, and honed her legal research and writing skills.
She was sought out as an expert in these areas by many attorneys in the
upstate New York area, before she relocated to Hawaii in 2008.
Cynthia received the American Jurisprudence award for outstanding
performance in an Estate Planning practicum, and focused her legal
studies in the areas of taxation and business law. After law school,
she engaged in a rigorous program of continuing legal education in the
areas of estate planning, probate law and taxation. By focusing on these
areas of the law, Cynthia is able to stay abreast of the complex and
constantly changing laws and rulings that govern the administration and
taxation of trusts and estates.
Cynthia lives in Wailua Homesteads with her husband, son and extended family. In her spare time, she enjoys being a mentor for Kauai's island-wide high school FIRST robotics team, the Kauaibots, and helping out with Island School's VEX team, the iBots. She also likes to hike, snorkel and just enjoy being outside.
