Firm principal Wayne Parsons believes that justice is the most important concern of man on earth. In his nearly 35 years of trial experience, Mr. Parsons has been involved in virtually every type of litigation, earning a reputation for achieving success in even the most complex cases. In recognition of his work, Mr. Parsons has been selected for inclusion to SuperLawyers, a listing of attorneys in each state who received the highest point totals, as chosen by peers and through the independent research of Law & Politics magazine. In 2006, Mr. Parsons was elected President of the Hawaii State Bar Association, and he is the founder of the People's Law School, a six-week adult education course offering non-lawyers basic legal information.

Mr. Parsons takes a service-oriented approach to the practice of law, working directly with each of his clients instead of passing them off to paralegals or associates.
