About me

   I was born in Honolulu and then moved back to Hawaii after college and attended law school here. I left my position at a large, corporate law firm because I wanted to practice law on a more personal level and use my skills to help people resolve their legal problems. 

   When you hire me, you will be hiring a lawyer who is accessible, responsive, and dedicated to providing excellent client service. I will take the time to listen to your concerns and answer your questions. I will explain the legal process and issues to you in plain English and provide a straightforward and honest assessment of your case.

    When am not in the office, I am usually spending time with my husband and my two boys. We love to hike the mountain trails around the island, especially any hike that ends at a place to swim! We enjoy cooking dinner and watching movies together. I like to relax by working in my vegetable garden or reading a good novel.
