I hired Mr. Doi to represent me in a child custody/relocation case to gain custody of my children. Throughout my entire experience with Mr. Doi and his staff they always do an amazing job with keeping me informed and up to date with my case as well as current positions or options that we should address. What I truly enjoy is that he has morals unlike many attorneys out there and he respects my decisions and positions for me and my children. From day one, when I actually was represented by someone else who failed to be competent, he took the time to listen and talk to me and really take the time to explain to me what he could do and was very realistic.
Any legal situation is stressful enough as is and between emotions and being anxious he has “talked me down” many times to stay focused on what was important. He is my lawyer and my therapist in some ways as with anyone that is faced with the stresses of family court, he kept me balanced and on point.
I would recommend him hands down and know that you will not be disappointed. Be honest and be truthful and he will do his best to represent you.

I would recommend Gavin Doi to anyone in need of an attorney for family matters. As emotional as family matters can be, Gavin kept me calm by explaining the process and options clearly so that I knew what to expect. His insight helped me focus on the goals which I was able to achieve with his guidance. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. As a client, Mr. Doi has always treated me with respect and I never felt like I was being judged. The fees are reasonable and actually really a great value for the service and expertise you receive! I highly recommend Gavin Doi!

When I was faced with one of the toughest periods in my life nearly 10 years ago, I called at least 15 law firms in Honolulu. My divorce, paternity and child custody case was complex and incredibly stressful on me but Gavin was the only attorney that took the time to listen and provide sound counsel on the matter. I immediately retained him and my confidence in him has grown with every obstacle we have faced since. He always promptly returns my phone calls, and he nor his office have ever dropped the ball or missed a filing date. He is fair, knowledgably, and he acts with integrity. -And he has on more than one occasion been my voice reason, understanding that thoughtless actions and emotions in the present can easily harm what we ultimately hope to achieve in the future. He is in my opinion what a family law attorney should be, and I am thankful that he is mine.
