About me


As a tenacious advocate, I have successfully litigated on behalf of my clients in the Federal U.S. District Court, Hawaii’s Circuit and District Courts, and the Intermediate Court of Appeals.  My experience in alternative dispute resolution includes mediation and arbitration, both as counsel for clients and as the mediator/arbitrator.  


My transactional practice includes the full spectrum of putting a deal together for my clients, from handling negotiations and due diligence, to drafting contracts and legal documents.  I am also often called upon to give preventative consultation, proactively giving my clients the legal insight they need to avoid potential future legal issues.


Prior to the practice of law, I worked in media production and advertising/public relations in New York and Japan, as an account and project manager.  My business experience includes the development and implementation of advertising and public relations material, supervision of design teams, and management of international accounts, which included strategy development and contract negotiations.


Diligently working to achieve the goals of my clients, I strive to serve under the highest work ethic and professional standards.  With each endeavor, I am mindful of the trust that has been placed upon me, and the need to provide benefit to my clients.
