The Ultimate Peace of Mind & Winning Results: When Your Reputation & Future Matter Most!
Rustam A. Barbee is the best criminal defense attorney in Honolulu. With decades of experience in the Hawaiian Islands, there's no other lawyer on Oahu with his type of extensive legal background. Besides his experience with the legal system at both the state and federal level, Rustam has an innate ability to excel in trial like settings. He truly is a master of his craft and a rare gem to find. From the initial call I had made to his office to the trial verdict, I could not have been more satisfied with the quality of his services and consultation sessions throughout the entire legal process. Prior to trial, Mr. Barbee did extensive research regarding the technicalities of every aspect of my case. I wholeheartedly felt he was he was very well prepared for my case and went above and beyond representing me to the best of his ability. His performance was nothing short of magical and I was extremely pleased with the outcome. As a criminology major in Hawaii, I've watched many trials on Oahu throughout the years among many top attorneys. Rustam has definitely proven to be a standout amidst his peers, especially in trial. You see, not all attorneys are cut out to be trial attorneys and Rustam Barbee is a rare breed amongst them. You must see him in action to to understand how his unique style and delivery in the courtroom has made him one of the most talented and well-versed attorneys in the state of Hawaii. From traffic, white collar, forfeiture, to violent and drug crimes do not hesitate to contact Mr. Barbee when your reputation and future of your life matters most. On top of being the most competent attorney I have ever met with a private practice in Hawaii, Rustam is an honest individual and family man. He is also so humble and down-to-earth one would never suspect he comes from a family of attorneys and has obtained a Juris Doctorate Degree. Rest assured, Rustam will represent you with his heart and soul should he take your case. I couldn't have been more blessed and grateful to have met Mr. Barbee and his paralegal Esther. It is with great privilege to give Attorney Rustam A. Barbee my highest recommendation to anyone who is seeking the ultimate peace of mind and a winning result. Rustam has genuinely cared for my well-being and has become a lifelong trusted legal consultant and friend.
