Bright, honest, firm and fair
Seven years later and I'm reminded how lucky I am with the attorney I chose. I misplaced a key document that others could just have easily billed for or put off my request. Lani's ethic shows throughout her team to this day! Thank you again!!

Simply the best.
Peace of mind isn't easy to find when dealing with legal issues, but when we leaned on Akiona Law for our legal matters they were able to counsel us in a way that lifted our burden and concerns. I'd recommend Ms. Akiona to anyone seeking Family and Divorce Attorney support or guidance, she's supported us during more than 1 circumstance and never left us unsettled.

Excellent help during a difficult time
I came to Akiona Law looking for council and representation in a divorce with children. I had, what I felt, some unique circumstances that required attention to detail and some creative problem solving. Ululani was so kind, patient and helpful through the entire process. Her staff was organized and able to answer many questions when Ululani wasn't available so I never had to wait long to get guidance. I would recommend this firm to anyone facing a family related law situation.

Excellent Representation - Even at a Distance
A hard divorce is all the harder when the fight is over child custody too. It's harder still when you live across the state from the courthouse and your lawyer. That's the situation I found myself in when I contacted Akiona Law to represent me. The 5-star rating is what Akiona Law earned. Even though we were unable to meet in person, the firm made it clear they were dedicated to my case and passionate about representing me. The quality of communication I had with the firm also helped put me at ease about the outcome of the case and the fact that I wasn't there in person. One of Avvo's questions is "Would you recommend this laywer?" I actually already have and will gladly do so again. The firm delivered more than I could have asked for, during such a trying time. If there were more stars, I would click on them too.

Brilliant, Quick, Efficient, and Caring Attorney
Ululani, Nathan Cliber, and their team helped me resolve a multitude of issues in my extremely hairy parentage case. During my initial interview, Ululani and Nathan both grasped the whole scenario within minutes, and retained said information down to every last detail. They never forgot anything throughout my entire 2.5 year case. Both Ululani and Nathan are wonderful attorneys who are responsive to their clients needs and are willing to strongly advocate for them. Both are very quick, intelligent, and really fight for their clients. On top of that duo, their team is extraordinary and when things are difficult, they are all there to keep you on track with next steps and what to expect. Ululani and Nathan are very clear, remember everything, are extremely communicative, and never leave you confused or wondering what is going on. They even go so far as to CC you on emails with the opposing party; you are never out of the loop with them. There are no questions when you’re represented by Ululani and/or Nathan. They keep you informed and help you know what is in the best interest of your case. If that wasn’t enough, they go above and beyond, and are always very thorough. Both will straight shoot information, but in a tactful manner. In the midst of my really hairy custody case, it was Ululani and Nathan that really helped ease my fears and stress. Without their reassurance and knowledge, I would have been a wreck. It’s difficult to trust someone you don’t know to help make the best decisions for what will end up being your child’s (and yours) life. But with Ululani and Nathan, I trust them 100%. They both are fantastic, brilliant and very easy to work with. I highly recommend them. I was for sure very lucky to have them representing me.

Akiona Law Office Review
The office of Akiona Law provided the representation we were looking for at a time when we needed it most. Lani's professionalism and creativity in dealing with our situation made us feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend Akiona Law to anyone who asked.

Can't praise Ms Akiona enough for her support and represention!
Ms Akiona was amazing through my divorce! In one of the scariest and most difficult times of my life she was there with a listening ear, yet confidence to fight the battle ahead of me. She was very direct and factual, in my very emotional state, I felt like she always had my best interest at heart, and helped me plan for my future, not just in the moment of crisis. I would highly recommend her to anyone who was going through a divorce, there isn't enough thanks that I can offer to her and her staff!

Wonderful Service
I went to the Akiona Law Firm needing help with changing my parenting plan. My ex was threatening to move with our kids and I didn't know what my legal options were to stop this. After reviewing my information and talking with Ms. Akiona, I felt much better. She explained my rights to me and laid out a plan of action. Through the entire process I was kept informed each step of the way. Ms. Akiona was easily reachable through email and phone whenever I had a question. Her paralegal was also very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining things to me. I feel that my case was handled in a timely manner and would return to Akiona Law should the need arise.

Proffessional, Knowledgable and a Godsend in time of crisis!
The first time I met with Lani I knew she was the right fit for my situation. After listening patiently to my story she was able to formulate a plan of action that would result in a profitable settlement through Mediation . Her knowledge, compassion & availability gave me the confidence I needed to get through a very difficult time. I am very gratefull for the financial outcome we obtained as well as knowing Lani as a person and would highly recommend her legal counsel!

Outstanding support, very responsive, and highly recommended
From the day I met her, Lani was incredibly respectful of my situation and my time. She listened to my situation, understood exactly where I was and what needed to be done, and was able to lay out a plan that we mutually agreed would be the best case scenario. Lani executed the plan flawlessly, kept me informed of the progress of my case, and provided situational awareness to me the entire time. Lani is very professional, educated and knowledgeable, both sympathetic and empathetic to my needs. I would (and have) recommend her to my family, friends and constituents.

Amazing Lawyer that became to feel like part of my family!
Lani, was my lawyer for almost 7 months. She handled my divorce and parenting plan. She fought hard for what she knew mattered to me and made sure my best interests were looked out for. I wanted a lawyer that i could trust and that i knew would take my case and put her whole heart into it.I always felt that I was heard and all my questions were answered. She and Alex her assistant spent a lot of time helping me understand the whole process and i could talk to one of them 8 times in one day and they were patient the entire time. I felt confident in Lani and it's hard to put your life in someones elses hands and hope for the best, but she gave me a second chance at life and I'm grateful she was there for me. I would go to Lani again in a heartbeat and suggest her to anyone.

Professional, competent, compassionate
Lani promptly answered my questions and researched a specific issue that protected me financially and assisted in insuring that I received an equitable and fair settlement. She was respectful to me and my ex-husband and always gave me accurate information. Lani is very professional but also caring and compassionate.

Divorce proceeding
I was very satisfied with my service that was provided by Ululani. She was very precise and prompt in every aspect of my case. Divorce is a stressful thing to go through and I could think of no one else that I would have had than her. Thank you for everything and God Bless.

Excellent Attorney - Family Law
Ululani has been an exceptional attorney. She is amazing at giving guidance and providing legal advice without being overbearing. I really felt that she gave me a voice and provided me with the legal background to obtain my desired result in a somewhat difficult family law/divorce case. Ululani is timely, responsive and fast! I really enjoyed working with her and would use her again in a hearbeat (although I hope I won't need to!).
