Mr P A s
I had a requirement to hire an attorney in the state of hawaii. After some research I found Damir. I knew within 5 minutes of our consultation that he was my best hope for a fair and equitable representation. His laser focus was incredible. As a 30 year commercial realtor I’ve seldom seen anyone so compassionate, caring and intelligent. His skill set and ability to find fact and present a case is beyond compare. And he’s respected throughout the state in the judicial system for his terrific manner of approach in a professional context and conduct as well..

Awesome lawyer!
I couldn't ask for a better lawyer than Damir. He helped me win with my three traffic violations with no problem. A dismissal which is the ultimate! He is very professional and responds quickly to questions. I highly recommend Damir. Mahalo, Damir

The best!
Damir is the best attorney around!! He made me feel comfortable and relaxed in the worst time for me. He told me step by step what was going to happen, what to expect, and what he will do for me in the first interview. His price is more than reasonable. Very affordable. One would think you’d pay more for how he handled himself and my case. His expertise and knowledge on my case and how to handle it was proven by the positive outcome in my favor! He even addressed the court and the judge to let them know I am also human and part of this community. I would definitely use his services if needed again. Hope I never will.

Best possible decision I could have made was to hire Damir as my DUI attorney.
Sorting everything out and communicating all the steps really made me ecstatic for the out come and would use him again if I ever find myself in need of an attorney.

Expert help : way worth it!
I received a speeding citation with a 7 yo in the vehicle which was not in a booster seat and expired safety check. He guided me to the right letters, paperwork, and courses and attended court for me. He got my charge reduced to simple speeding with his recommendations! It really saved me!

First-rate Representation and Guidance
Damir's work on my traffic case was professional and timely. He's a great listener and provided me perspective on the likely outcomes so I could make an informed decision about how to proceed. In the end I ended up with a result that I am certain I could not have otherwise achieved without Damir's representation.

Very responsive, went above & beyond!
I got an excessive speeding ticket (a misdemeanor) during my vacation in Big Island. I made a mistake in my hurry to get to the tourist site. The ticket had potential implications for immigration status. I decided to contact an attorney and not take any chances - I am extremely glad that I worked with Damir. Damir was extremely responsive to emails, gave me clear instructions on what I needed to provide. He even recommended that I do a defensive driving class online to show good intent to judge - I followed his advice and provided all the documentation and did an online defensive driving class as well. Damir also set the right expectations from the beginning without overpromising anything. I had a court appearance scheduled - however Damir was able to argue on my behalf with the judge and get the case dismissed considering my specific circumstances!! I didn't have to appear for the court appearance either because of his work. This was way beyond what I had expected. I highly recommend reaching out to him.

Outstanding above and Beyond!!!
Damir was absolutely Outstanding! He was amazing to work with. He’s very knowledgeable and just knew everything to do to get the best deal possible and to prepare for the upcoming court case I was charged with excessive speeding and reckless driving on the big island. The severity of my case was Very serious and I could have been sentenced up to 30 Days in Jail along with a permanent Criminal record and a suspended license This was definitely the biggest mistake I made in my life and Damir was there to help me get through this tough situation. Due to Damir‘s absolutely outstanding work he was able to have the State drop the charges to a Regular speeding ticket. When you work with Damir just know you have the best traffic lawyer in the state and you are in Great hands. Even with his Extremely demanding schedule He is very responsive and is there to answer any questions. Could not be more happy with the outcome of the case All my hearings were via Zoom and thanks to Damirs representation I Didn’t even need to Attend! I was able to continue going to work without taking time off to deal with the very serious case. If you want peace of mind work With damir! Much appreciation and respect for what Damir and his team dose thank you so much Could never say thank you enough for how grateful I am of his work I have learned my lesson and will a very defensive and diligent driver for the safety of our Hawaii community Aloha and mahalo.

Thank you SO MUCH!
My Wife and I are so relieved we found Damir! We tried to navigate an inaccurate reckless driving / excessive speeding ticket on our own, when we went to court, we saw how overworked the public defenders were. So we decided to hire Damir, we are so glad we did. He was able to negotiate on our behalf and get the ticket knocked down. He made our lives so much less stressful, he got our desired outcome and he did it at a great price. I hope we never need his help again, but if we do, he's the first Attorney we will call. Thank you Damir!

Made my problems disappear
Damir was so helpful and he made my problems disappear. He made me feel seen in a way that I knew he believed in me and the outcomes of all my cases. I would definitely recommend Damir if you find yourself in a jam.

Damir Delivered
"Excessive Speeding" requires a court appearance. Damir worked a plea to a lesser charge with the prosecutor and appeared in court on my behalf - so that I did not have to return to Hilo, HI.

Traffic Citation at Route 200
I want to say thank you to attorney Damir. Last year, my wife and I visited Big Island with my parents in law for the first time. I admit that I made a mistake while I was driving from Kona to Hilo through Route 200. We were all amazed that the scenery changed as the altitude got lower as we approached Hilo. Our SUV was the slowest car on the highway and every car passed us until we drove by the speed trap. None of us noticed the speed limit changed. The police issued me a ticket. A big one. I was in the process of getting US Citizenship and this ticket could damage the process. So, I searched for an attorney and found Damir. I could notice that he understood what happened to me and knew what to do to get the best result. He communicated with me via phone text which was prompt and quickly responded. He prepared everything for the court meeting. During the zoom meeting with the court and the judge, he handled all the questions and negotiated with the court to reduce the fine to the minimum amount which was $145 for my category. This year, I submitted the record of the ticket to USCIS and it didn’t cause any problems. I received my US Citizenship as scheduled. I really appreciate his help and service.

Happy to have found a responsive, caring and fair attorney!
After calling several attorneys that have not returned calls still over a week, I found Damir who responded that night after office hours. He listened and gave sound advice that was best for my situation. He started investigating immediately and included me. There were so many fear factors and he relieved them one by one including the cost of his services. I will highly recommend him to others. Listening and then advocating for the client are what we should expect but not always the case. You’ll be in good hands with Damir.
