About me

Mr. Zahaby moved from Kauai, Hawaii to Honolulu in 1994 and has been back and forth between the two islands ever since.  He believes that attorneys should act as counselors helping their clients to make wise decisions with aloha rather than encouraging litigation.  Mr. Zahaby concentrates on non-litigation, non-adversarial practice in the areas of real estate, estate planning and asset protection planning, compensation planning, and tax and business planning for physicians, business owners, professionals, and low/high net worth individuals.  He also serves as an arbitrator for the State of Hawaii Court Annexed Arbitration Program.  When not practicing law or spending time with his wife Jeanne Zahaby (from Waipahu), Jon can be found surfing out at Ehukai Beach and Kaiser's Bowls on Oahu or Hanalei Bay and Kealia Beach on Kauai
