Disciplined Hawaii Attorneys 

Hawaii Lawyers Publicly Disciplined for ATTORNEY Misconduct

Before hiring an attorney, it is important to determine if an attorney is presently disbarred or suspended.  To find out an attorney's status, visit Hawai`i State Bar Association and search that particular attorney by name. 

Attorneys who have the “License Status” of "Suspended-Discipline", "Disbarred", or "Resign-Discipline" after their name are NOT authorized to practice law until such time as they are restored to active status.  For a full list of license status explanations, click here.

Publicly Disciplined Active Hawaii Attorneys

To find out if an active attorney is in good standing but may have been previously subject to public discipline, please contact ODC to obtain a copy of the actual Supreme Court Order. 

Past discipline is not necessarily an indicator of present ability or conduct.  Disbarred or suspended attorneys must show that they have been rehabilitated before being allowed to actively re-engage in the practice of law.
