My name is Roman Amaguin. I am an attorney in Honolulu, Hawaii, and my law practice focuses on employment and labor law litigation, and general civil litigation.
I graduated from U.C. Berkeley, where I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History. I received my Doctor of Jurisprudence (JD) from the University of Hawaii, where I was the Executive Editor of the Law Review.
I am on the Employment Law Arbitration Panel for National Arbitration and Mediation and I am an Arbitrator for the State of Hawaii’s Court Annexed Arbitration Program.
In 2014 I was selected a “Top Rated Lawyer in Labor and Employment” by American Lawyer Media, the nation’s largest publisher of legal media, including the National Law Journal, the American Lawyer, and Corporate Counsel.
I have also been selected to the exclusive Hawaii Super Lawyers list. No more than five percent of the lawyers in each state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor.
