Hands down the best decision! Once finding out I was under investigation for a misdemeanor (yet very serious) allegation, I consulted with nearly a dozen attorneys. Alen was by far the most responsive, professional, helpful, and practical of all I spoke to, so I hired him. While some lawyers wanted to "wait it out" and see what the State was going to do, Alen engaged immediately and in the end, the prosecutor did not file charges in my case. His ability to listen, ask thoughtful questions, and provide candid support about the case was reassuring during an extremely scary/confusing time. His patient-level headed approach to analyzing the details and compassion for his clients is crystal clear. If you want a responsive and knowledgeable professional who is no doubt "on your team", he's the lawyer you want.

We all mess up sometimes. We all make mistakes. That's just human nature.
Bottom line..if you want a chance in court, you need to hire Alen Kaneshiro. After what he did for me, I wouldn't hire anyone else.
I was referred to Alen Kaneshiro through a friend who received a DUI. My particular case was also a petty misdemeanor in the state of Hawaii. I consulted with two other criminal defense attorneys before speaking with Alen. Each of them gave me options, but neither of them were optimistic about the outcome. They mentioned certain options were off the table.
When I spoke with Alen during our initial consultation, he was very understanding and humble. He broke down the situation for me so that I could understand what was really going on and what I was up against. He then laid out his strategy that same night, presenting me with several options and broke down the likelihood of success for each. He was honest with me, but still optimistic. So we went to trial.
Alen was a true professional both in and out of court. As a result of his efforts, my case was dismissed. I can't thank him enough for giving me a second chance.
