Great experience
From initial contact Damir was personable, responsive to any questions we had, honest and on top of my case. His knowledge and communication was consistently comforting and the end result was beyond what I was hoping for and our family couldn’t thank him enough.

Good lawyer
During my first visit to Big Island, I made speed violation. My first Traffic Crime! I did not know what to do. I did not attend the court from NJ to Hawaii. I wasted time and bench warrant was issued for me. So I was intimidated and searched the suitable lawyer based on google review. And find “Damir Kouliev : Attorney & Counselor at Law”. Mr. Kouliev solved my case smoothly. My traffic crime has alleviated to regular violation via negotiation. I will not violate again, so I will not need the attorney’s help anymore, but for others like me, I strongly recommend this laywer.

Great Attorney!!!
I was charged with a DUI last Dec. I went with the public defender, because I did not have the money to hire an atty. After several months of continuances and having to start over with a new name and face every month; I felt like there was no one on my team. I approached my family about borrowing some money and they thankfully agreed to help. I had heard of Mr. Kouliev through an acquaintance and decided to get a hold of him. This was the best decision I could have made. His rates were reasonable and he was prompt,clear and professional every step of the way. The original charges were amended to a violation of a county code and the fines were reduced exponentially (to almost nil) The amount of money spent on attorney fees was more than made up for in money saved in fines and legal troubles. I couldn't be more satisfied with the outcome in every way. I highly recommend his services.

Highly recommend Damir-Oahu, HI
I had just moved to Hawaii when I needed legal help here and I selected Damir's service after talking about my case with 4 other lawyers because he was direct, had an actionable plan, he was very knowledgeable and immediately provided a step by step outline to help resolve the things that would help me gain an advantage by the time I was in front of the judge/prosecutor. We had an outstanding out come, it truly was best-case scenario and I couldn't have had a better partner supporting me through my legal issue. I highly recommend Damir from an aptitude and results perspective. Aside from his ability, I didn't expect to also be represented by such a stand-up person--he is just a really good person as well. I appreciated that

Great Service!
Attorney Damir Kouliev exceeded all expectations with his exceptional performance in reducing my initial citations. His ability to over-deliver on results was absolutely impressive. Kouliev doesn't merely attend to matters but approaches them with a vigorous commitment that leads to extraordinary outcomes. His quick response time was also highly commendable, ensuring seamless communication throughout the process. Remarkably, everything was handled with utmost professionalism and completed within a 72-hour timeframe. Kouliev's dedication to his clients is clear and it's an absolute pleasure to recommend his services.

Aloha Damir! Damir was a great help. Making you feel like someone is on your side & has your back literally could mean everything, depending on whatever your facing. For me it was the equivalent of life and death. Lol. Nah but seriously he pulled through way beyond my realistic expectations. Thanks again so much Damir!!

Simply the best in Hawaii
I recently had the pleasure of working with attorney Damir Kouliev, and I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience. Damir is consummate professional who demonstrates an exceptional level of expertise and care while handling my legal matter. One of the things that impresses me most about Mr. Kouliev is his ability to explain complex legal concepts in a way that is easy to understand. He always takes the time to listen to my concerns and answers all of my questions with patience and clarity, never once making me feel like I’m asking a stupid question. I truly appreciate his willingness to go the extra mile to ensure that I have all relegate information and am comfortable throughout the entire process. Another thing that stands out to me is Damir’s responsiveness. He always returns my calls and emails promptly and keeps me up to date. I never feel in the dark or left wondering what was going on, which is a huge relief. Overall, I highly recommend Damir Kouliev to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable, trustworthy, and compassionate attorney. He truly went above and beyond to ensure that I received the best possible outcome. My family is extremely grateful for all of his hard work and dedication. Thank you, Damir, for everything!

Competent, Compassionate, Affordable Representation
As a retired civil litigation attorney, I recognize and appreciate competent, compassionate, communicative, affordable counsel. Following a tragic traffic accident, Damir represented me in the resulting misdemeanor negligent homicide case from initiation thru plea negotiation, sentencing, probation, motion practice and ultimate dismissal. Damir demonstrated a high degree of knowledge, experience and skill, along with strong working relationships with the involved prosecutorial, court and probation personnel, throughout the process. I could not have hoped for a more favorable result under the circumstances, and wholeheartedly recommend Damir to anyone seeking competent, compassioante, affordable criminal defense counsel.

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.
