Why Hawaii Relies on Us
Our legal team is led by attorney Robert Marx. Mr. Marx has been a legal advocate for Hawaii's Ohana since 1980. He has been named "Best Attorney" in East Hawaii by the Hawaii Tribune-Herald readers numerous times, and his practice has earned multiple "Best Law Office" honors.
He recently added attorney Hannah McKee to our practice. Ms. McKee graduated from the University of Hawaii at Manoa's law school. She also has a BA and MBA. Hannah has worked in various roles in the legal system since 2016. Both attorneys are licensed to practice in State and Federal Court.
A Big Island Legal Record
Attorney Marx's impressive career includes several record-breaking court verdicts and settlements. Most notably, he was lead counsel in a Big Island record auto accident verdict of $5,630,000. This financial compensation was collected on behalf of the children of an innocent Hawaii mother who was killed during a police chase.
The young mother was the passenger in a car stopped at an intersection, and was struck by the suspect fleeing the police. Mr. Marx utilized his legal acumen to sue both the suspect and police department. Our practice was proud to collect the compensation her suffering family deserved, and help to bring closure to their loved one's passing.
Robert Marx was named one of the Top 50 Personal Injury Attorneys in Hawaii and one of the Top 50 Personal Injury Attorneys in the United States.
More Massive Verdicts
Mr. Marx has been called upon by other lawyers for his legal services. He has been a key member of teams that won multi-million dollar cases in court. He was a juror consultant in a product liability case for the side that won a record $16,952,000 verdict. Later on, he was co-counsel in a $5.6 million medical malpractice verdict.
Our Major Areas of Practice
Car accidents can cause lifelong harm to victims and their families. In 2021, Hawaii experienced 510 serious injuries due to car accidents and 94 motor vehicle fatalities. Main contributors to fatal car accidents here include distracted driving, speeding, and driving under the influence. Auto accident lawyers often require witness statements, photographic evidence, and police reports to help win their lawsuit. Mr. Marx and his team draw on his extensive experience and expert network to preserve and present compelling evidence. His team builds your case so you can focus on recovery.
A simple purchase can end up causing major suffering if you happened to buy a defective product. Design defects, manufacturing defects, and insufficient warnings can all be grounds for a defective product lawsuit. Examples include defective air bags or even a warning label on a medication that omits key information. Our law firm can identify who is liable for the defect and build a legal case against them. The defense often argues that there was no defect at all, and that the injured person modified the product after buying it. Our team knows how to prove the truth.
The tragic death of a loved one is a true tragedy. While financial compensation cannot change what happened, it can be necessary to rebuild the lives of the victim's surviving family. Additionally, a successful wrongful death lawsuit can sometimes result in punitive damages, which are awarded by the court to financially punish the person who caused the wrongful death. Our legal team can pursue wrongful death lawsuits caused by a variety of actions.
Patients deserve medical care that meets a certain level of quality. Unfortunately, medical providers who fail to meet this standard can cause extreme harm. Surgeons, doctors, dentists, and other healthcare workers can all fail to act as they should. Examples of medical malpractice include failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis, surgical error, and delaying medically necessary treatment.
Sexual assault can lead to depression, PTSD, and worse. Victims of sexual assault deserve vigorous representation under the law. Approximately 2/3 of sexual assaults occur at or near the victim's home or their relatives' home. The fact that these horrific violations are often committed by people known by the victim, their friends, and their family can create pressure to not pursue justice under the law.
