Verdicts & Settlements

The verdicts and settlements obtained by our personal injury lawyers here at Hawaii ( have consistently been highly favorable to our clients. Although, for privacy reasons, we do not publicize our clients’ specific results (unlike some firms), we can simply say that virtually all of the recent cases handled by our law firm have resulted in favorable results for our clients, including a recent jury verdict in excess of $5 million and a recent settlement for $2 million..

We are private about the results that we obtain for our clients because this approach has proven to be the best for our clients. We will not use your case as a vehicle for advertising our law firm. Generally we do not advertise on TV nor do we call press conferences about the cases we handle. Several of our recent trials have been followed by news reporters on a daily basis. Although the public has a right to know what takes place in the public courtrooms, we have found that it is best for our clients to maintain as much confidentiality as possible about their financial situation. Some attorneys help to create a circus atmosphere around cases that they try by constantly talking to the press. Although we maintain excellent relations with the press, we do nothing to help them publicize our trials nor the results of cases and settlements in which we are involved.

In spite of our quiet approach, word has gotten out about some of the success which we have obtained. Attorney William H. Lawson is listed as one of only 5 or so members of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum from Hawaii. He is also a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. After just 3 years with the firm, attorney Amy L. Woodward has already met the qualifications for membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and we are waiting for them to process her membership. Awards and jury verdicts in the multi-million dollar range are very rare in Hawaii. We have obtained several in the past few years.

Perhaps the best recommendations for our firm come from our clients and our peers who have chosen to let their feelings be made known. We are thankful and humbled that both our clients and our colleagues have consistently given us the best Reviews and Testimonials possible.

Similarly, our firm has been given the best rankings possible from the best attorney rating businesses. We are Top Rated by Martindale Hubbell (AV preeminent). We have the best rating possible from  10 of 10 for both for general practice and for personal injury. Both our clients and our peers have also given us the top ratings possible from (5.0 of 5.0 for Peer Rating and 5.0 of 5.0 for Client Rating). Links to those ratings and many others can be found on our Awards and Honors page. These rankings also generally include reviews of our law practice which you may also want to consider.

If appropriate, we would like to show you how our top rated legal services and our direct contact between client and the attorney on your case will help you to recover and to bear up under the process of going forward.
