I was referred to Dan Hempey by an acquaintance. As it turned out, that was the best referral of my life. His level of experience gives him the uncanny ability to outmaneuver the opposition, i.e., determine whether a legal issue is the shield or the sword, and have the confidence to deliver the chosen message in the courtroom. If hiring the absolute best legal counsel is your goal, then without hesitation, this should be your first call.

Dan works really hard for his clients and goes the extra mile to develop a solid case. He's super ethical, extremely smart, very experienced and he has a big heart. I recommend him very highly. I consulted with him on a legal case and he was very helpful and made sure my concerns were resolved. I've seen him in court over the years and he's an excellent trial attorney. He's truly one of the top lawyers in Hawaii.

I have known Dan Hempey for many years. While we have mostly been on opposing sides, I can certainly respect and appreciate his abilities and skills. My dealings with him have been numerous over the years. I have always found him to be creative and diligent in his endeavors and in his representation of clients. I have personally recommended him on multiple occasions to those seeking services that I was not able to provide. He has always received complements from those I referred. I would not hesitate to recommend him again. If you are in need of criminal defense, general litigation, or have legal issues with a governmental entity, do not hesitate to contact him or his firm. He has a great team of lawyers to assist you with your legal needs on the Garden Island.
