About Barbara

Learn Barbara’s areas of practice.

We live on a beautiful Island!  I moved here with my husband in 2002 from Alaska, after we bought our house in 2000.  We have two dogs and a wonderful house and my office on our property.   There is plenty of parking at the office and a quaint old sugar cane plantation town to visit when you come to see me.  I do a lot of work with clients through email as well, especially my mainland clients.  Please drop by and say hello!

Great advisor
Barbera's advice was clear and straight to the point. If she practiced in Oahu I would definitely retain her as my counsel.

Barbara Frankllin/Honokaa Attorney
To Whom It May Concern: I have worked with Barbara on a couple of separate legal matters here in Hawaii. One involved questions pertaining to a proposed Real Estate Partnership, and the second revolved around a pending Mortgage Restructuring. I found her straight-forward approach to both matters quite helpful. She has extensive background experience not only with respect to Real Estate, but also Bankruptcy. My highest recommendation.

Referral for Barbara Lee Franklin Attorney for a Chapter 12 reorganization for Farmers , Ranchers and Fishermen
We would like to recommend and refer anyone who is in need in the Islands of Hawaii to Barbara Lee Franklin. We found her to be completely upfront and to the point on all points of our Chapter 12 on the Island of Hawaii. As a farmer we had no where to turn and she was recommended to us as the only one that understands the complexity of the Chapter 12 which is made specifically for our farming business going into bankruptcy. You will find her and staff's attention to detail and follow through exceptional. There is a lot of work involved in this type of bankruptcy and they stayed and walked us through every detail. They assisted us in many ways to understand the process and the way the law reads to assist us. We would like to add that she is from what we know the only one in Hawaii to make it through the courts in the Chapter 12, you will find her professional , considerate and very Trustworthy. We would recommend Barbara for anyone that needs a good reliable attorney.
