Best lawyer
Daniel and Rush Moore LLP not only represented me throughout my case but they also supported me more than any other lawyer I’ve worked with. They are honest, hard working, and always there for me. I appreciate their kindness and patience when answering all of my questions and explaining to me what everything meant throughout the process. Even during COVID slowing things down they always showed up and gave me updates on everything. I wouldn’t trust anyone else since they are the ones to got me trust the justice system/lawyers again.

Happy Outcome
I recently hired Daniel Chen to resolve a legal issue our company had with a local company located in Hawaii. He moved quickly and efficiently to bring about a happy ending as we had hoped at the lowest cost to us. I recommend this attorney for any legal issues.

Awesome Lawyer
I have received legal advice from Mr. Chen on several occasions regarding a wide variety of legal matters ranging from reviewing contracts, dealing with harassment at work, and a trust dispute. He has always been very reliable and has provided me with clear and straightforward legal assistance that allowed me to make the right decision. I would recommend hiring him.

peace of mind
Mr. Chen has been my attorney since I started my solo practice as a physician 4 years ago. Like most physicians, I didn't really think about having a lawyer or what that meant for my business. I sought him out mainly for contract review. However, I then realized how helpful he was, not only with general legal advice, but he was able to quickly guide me through a rough trust dispute and help me obtain a favorable outcome. The best thing about Mr. Chen is the trust I have developed with him over the last few years. He is prompt, professional, pro-active and his advice has been invaluable. I highly recommend Mr. Chen as a lawyer. Having him on my side has really brought me peace of mind.

Excellent Attorney
I've relied on Mr. Chen several times for a wide variety of legal matters, including trust and estate litigation, consultation on insurance related matters, and general legal advice. As my attorney in a lawsuit over a family estate, Mr. Chen put me at ease by explaining the entire legal process very clearly, fighting for my position, and then obtaining a very favorable result for my estate. I'm so thankful for all his help. I should also add that while Mr. Chen's knowledge of the law was outstanding, what really set him apart from other attorneys I've worked with in the past was his honesty, thoughtfulness, and attention to detail.

Litigation Attorney | Jul 07
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Dan Chen since law school. He was a determined, methodical, detail oriented, and brilliant student. After we passed the bar, we worked for several years at different civil litigation firms in neighboring buildings in Bishop Square. When we met for lunch or pau hana I would pick his brain for ways to improve my practice. I eventually left civil law and went to work for the public defenders office, so I never had to face him in court as an adversary. I'm glad, because he practices law just like he studied: with patience, brilliance, and the relentless pursuit of excellence. For the past decade, I have referred friends and family who contacted me with legal questions to a very short list of civil attorneys. Dan is almost always at the top of that list. When and if I ever have a business dispute, or get involved in a situation involving estate litigation or insurance defense, my first call will be to Dan Chen. Highest recommendation."
