We have not found any instances of professional misconduct for this lawyer.
I graduated from the University of California at Irvine with the distinguished honor of "Order of Omega." After college, I taught at the Princeton Review where I was awarded "Teacher of the Year." After the Princeton Review, I attended the # 1 environmental law school in the United States, Vermont Law School. While there, I wrote for the Vermont Bar Journal and founded an Asian Pacific American Law Students Association chapter.
After graduation, I worked as a Deputy Attorney General for the State of Hawaii. While a government lawyer, I litigated hundreds of cases and had three cases that were appealed to the Hawaii Supreme Court. I won all three of my Hawaii Supreme Court cases. One Supreme Court case was published. That case highlighted the importance of the separation of powers doctrine arising from the three branches of government, the executive branch, the judicial branch, and the legislative branch. The foundation of the doctrine is based in our Constitution, as is your right to a jury trial.
I believe in jury trials.
When not litigating, I spending time with my wife and two children. We can be found at the beach or on the golf course. On Sundays, we are at church. My sense of family commitment comes from my parents who taught me and my two sisters the meaning of excellence and dedication. My dad is a retired engineer/entrepreneur and my mom is a retired pharmacist. My older sister is a surgeon in Santa Barbara. My younger sister is an entrepreneur in San Francisco. Typical overachieving Asian-American family? I'd like to think that we are not. We love to play as much as we work. Playing frees the mind to be creative at work. Ocean related activities and golfing are my family's playtime.
With support from my family, I am honored to give back to the community. I served as a chapter president for the Hawaii Junior Chamber of Commerce and the Christian Legal Society of Hawaii. I am a member at the Beneficial Protective Order of the Elks, Lodge 616. I currently serves as a Board Member for the Hawaii Association for Justice and the Christian Legal Society.
I continue to learn. After law school, I graduated from the nationally acclaimed Gerry Spence Trial Lawyer's College at Thunderhead Ranch in Dubois, Wyoming. The uniform that I wear is of made of Honor and Courage. My badge that reads, "Never give up." I will fight for you. My motto for 2023 is, "Stay humble, stay alert."
There is no JUSTICE . . . there is only JUST US.
I decendent from a long line of warriors. A United States Citizen of Korean ancestry, my forefathers served in the United States Military and the Republic of Korea (South Korea) Military. Why is that relevant? Being a trial lawyer means battling the multi-billion dollar insurance industry and their hired henchmen. Insurance companies are as ruthless as the corporate law firms they hire to spin and covering up the evidence. I have cracked the top insurance firms in Hawaii and the United States by exposing their misdeeds in open court. In high stakes ligitation, insurance companies often hire "mainland" counsel to delay, deny, and defend. Not a problem, I have slayed the best of these corporate scoundrels. A jury awarded my client $5,400, against Farmers Insurance. Keep tuned in, more to come.
