One of the firms strengths is explaining in plain and understandable language the estate planning process and customizing an estate plan to fit the client's needs. Our focus is to build long term relationships with our clients to help ensure that their estate plan will continue to be up to date and meet their needs in the future.
Trust & Probate Administration
Our firm understands that when it is time to implement a client's estate plan, the process of administering a trust and/or an estate can be overwhelming to the family. Our firm will guide families in understanding the process, what steps need to be done and by whom, so that the administration can be done as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Trust & Probate Litigation
We take pride in assisting our clients with navigating through the probate court system. We have successfully resolved matters related to trust accountings, failure to provide copies of estate documents, removal of trustees or defending trustees, revoking a will or trust due to lack of capacity or undue influence or defending a will/trust, reforming a trust, landlord/tenant issues, summary possession to remove a tenant, partition of real property (joint owners dispute regarding real property, etc.).

Our attorneys have provided both general and collection counsel services to multiemployer plans for over 20 years in Hawaii.
