My son visited this summer from The United Kingdom, where he lived with my Ex-Wife (who had physical custody). During the visit, my son expressed that he felt in danger of going back because he was witness to my Ex-Wife and her new British citizen boyfriend fighting constantly. I immediately contacted David Callahan and Laurel Barraco because I heard they were no doubt "the best." Their calm but calculating personalities immediately put at me at ease because I was so frightened of my son being in the middle of that mess in a foreign country and having absolutely no recourse if something were to happen. What made my case even more complicated was that our original divorce decree and custody had been decided in the Hawaiian Court System. They let me know right up from once they had all the facts how much hiring them would cost and I have to say, not only was the cost very reasonable but they were totally transparent as well. They used their wealth of experience and absolute knowledge of the law and the court system to strategize a plan. Within just 3 short weeks, Attorney's Callahan and Barraco won my case. I went from being absolutely petrified thinking about my son being in this horrible living situation in a foreign country, to legal and physical custody (overriding the previous Hawaiian Court System Decree). My son is now a happy productive member of a local 7th Grade class and he and I both have the dedication to duty, knowledge of the law, and calming personal demeanors of Attorney's Callahan and Barraco to thank for it.

Laurel did a great job during my 8 month divorce process. She was always quick to respond to my emails/phone calls. She helped me me focused when emotions were running high. Laurel is truly dedicated to her clients and gives 110%. I would absolutely recommend her as a divorce lawyer.

The difficult situation I find myself in has only been made worse by an extremely difficult ex. Laurel has kept me focused on the details that matter in my case and not the nonsense that tends to come with it. Emotions have the ability to run high yet she has kept me grounded. Laurel has stood up for me when it seemed like no one else could. She was strong in court and gave me the confidence that helped me through this difficult time. I never felt like I was bothering her and she always had the time for me when I needed her advice. Unfortunately I will likely need legal representation down the road but I am happy to say it will remain as Attorney Barraco and her team. She is a great lawyer to have in your corner.

Excellent attorneys. Both Attorney Callahan and Attorney Barraco helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life. They were there whenever I needed them, even if it was after hours or on a weekend. I truly appreciate their guidance and refusal to back down to my ex and his attorney.

I want to thank Laurel for everything she did! I wasn't entirel sure what to expect when hiring an attorney, but I felt comfortable immediately after meeting Laurel. She's incredibly knowledgable and articulate, and supportive throughout the entire process. I'm so grateful to have had her in my corner - thanks Laurel!

Laurel has been such a tremendous help. She fought hard for me and my family during a difficult situation, and helped us get the results we were looking for. If you're looking for someone who really cares about your case, and works hard to support you and your family, I highly recommend Laurel.

One of the first things that Laurel told me during our first meeting was that she "works" for me as the client, and she did just that! I was very nervous about entering into the legal process of establishing my paternal rights with my son but Laurel eased my fears and made me comfortable right off the bat. She spoke to me as an equal, very friendly and not looking down on me from a high horse, as my previous experience with other lawyers had shown me.
As she explained how the process goes, I began to feel more confident about my situation. She was extremely poised when negotiating with the opposing party involved.
I was very pleased with the outcome and I am very grateful for all the hard work that Laurel put in helping me with a custody battle that is an extremely stressful situation to go through.

Laurel and her team were excellent to work with. I found them to be fair, knowledgeable, compassionate, and responsive. My divorce case was particularly intense, and financially complex. I was able to build relationships with lawyers having specific expertise in the subject matter at hand. I found all three lawyers I worked with to be equally professional, and just simply good people to work with. They supported me through what could have been a disaster, to a very good resolution.

Laurel advised me in a divorce and custody dispute and helped me get the best result possible for my client. She has extensive knowledge on divorce and custody proceedings, and I highly recommend her.
