Hawaii Attorney Directory

Laws are getting more and more complicated each day.  Our city, state, and federal law makers are constanting adding and changing laws.  The days of a lawyer "putting out his shingle" and handling many different areas of law are long gone.  The purpose of this Hawaii lawyer directory is to help you find a lawyer who specializes in the area of law that you need help with.  It is critical that you hire a lawyer who is focused on the area of law that you need help with and who has extensive experience as well.  Although law school is the first required step to being a lawyer, the truly great attorneys are those who have spent years with a focus on very few narrow areas of law.  Unless a lawyer has been practicing law for a hundred years, you don't want to hire him/her if they claim to be experienced and an expert in many different areas of law.  In speaking with various attorneys, many of them have stated that once they realized how important it is to focus on a very narrow area of law their practices were much more fulfilling because they were able to become truly great Hawaii attorneys in that specific area of law.  

Lawyers are taught from the beginning of their training how important it is to show great confidence in what they do.  This is great advice when it comes to an area of law that they are truly experienced and proficient in; however, it can be a big mistake when an attorney acts as though they are experts in numerous areas of law.  The good Honolulu lawyers will quickly learn that it is okay to tell people, "Sorry, but that isn't my area of practice, let me give you the names of a few Hawaii attorneys who focus their practices on that area of law."  This Hawaii attorney directory has been established to help you find a great Hawaii lawyer who focuses his practice on the area of law that you need help with.

Not only do you want to find a law firm that specialized in the area of law that you need help with, but you also want to find the "right fit" for you.  For example, if you've been injured in a car accident you will need to hire a personal injury lawyer.  There are many types of personal injury law firms in Hawaii.  Some of small injury law firms with one or a few injury lawyers.  Others are huge injury law firms with dozens of lawyers and even more paralegals and secretaries.  So, you need to consider which type of law firm you want to hire.  If you want to receive personal attention from your lawyer who knows your case very well, than you should probably hire one of the small law firms, or even a sole practitioner.  If you don't mind dealing mostly with paralegals and secretaries, then you won't mind hiring one of the very large injury law firms.  It's usually just a personal preference.  Both types of law firms will probably do a good job on your case, it's just a question of the type of person you are.  If you like to be able to call your lawyer directly or email him and get a response by the end of the day, than you should probably hire one of the smaller injury law firms.  Just because a law firm is small doesn't mean it's not as good as one of the big law firms.  In fact, some of the best personal injury lawyers in Hawaii are sole practitioners because they prefer it that way.

When choosing a lawyer, be sure to read through their website to see if you will have a good working relationship with him.  Depending on the type of case you have, you may end up dealing with that lawyer on a regular basis for years.  It's also a good idea to check out online reviews such as Google Reviews and Yelp Reviews.  This is a good way to see if past clients have been pleased with their lawyer or not.  Also, feel free to give him a call for a free consultation.  This is a great way to see if you have a good feeling about the lawyer or not.  If the consultation is free than you have nothing to lose.  You shouldn't be concerned that you'll be pressured to hire the lawyer.  Especially if the consultation is over the phone.  After all, all you have to do is hang up if the attorney is trying to pressure you into hiring him.  Almost always, when you call for a free consultation you'll not only get a lot of free advice, but you'll also have a good feeling whether you want to hire the lawyer or not.
