About Stanley

Learn Stanley’s areas of practice.

I have practiced plaintiff's jury trial litigation for almost 50 years in Hilo Hawaii. During that time I started as a solo practitioner, then started a law firm that grew to 10 lawyers over the years. As the members of the firm retired, went out on their own, and became judges, the firm got smaller. Finally I became a solo practition at age 70. Then , in order to help our lawyer son along, I joined the same firm where he is an associate at,Bickerton Dang, a statewide firm based in Honolulu. I am Of Counsel, and supervise the Hawaii Island cases, with Jim bickerton and our plaintiff's litigation team. I have held this position for almost 5 years,to date. The strength of this relationship for our clients is the fact that my son, Nathan Pohakea Roehrig,an associate with the firm and myself are known by the local community as Big Island lawyers.. We understand the Big Island attitudes on public affairs ,personal relationships,and Big Island families. We have both competed in surfing and canoe paddling over the years ,as have a strong background in public service. In the sixties and seventies, I served in the State of Hawaii House of Representitives, where I served for 8 years both as the Judiciary committee chairman as well as the Agrculture chairman. After serving in the legislature I was appointed by the Governor to serve for thre years on the University of Hawaii Board of REgents. then , I was appointed by the Governor for four years to the State Land Use Commission, finally, I was appointed by the next Governor to the Board of Land and Natural Resources for a four year term, where I am presently serving. I have a strong background in Hawaiian land law and the Hawaiian language. I graduated from the University of Hawaii at Hilo Hawaiian Language College in 2005, with a certificate in the Hawaiian language. I found it important to speak and translate the Hawaiian language,to help me litigate quiet title cases for the Hawaiian community against big land owners around the state since 1968. This background also assists in service on the Board of Land and Natural Resources where we have frequent dockets relating to Hawaiian issues. My wife and I have a Hawaiian grandson, here in Hilo,and two grandchildren in Burlingame, Calif. Life is good!
