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.

Our Major Areas of Practice
In 2021, Hawaii experienced 510 serious injuries due to car accidents and 94 motor vehicle fatalities. Major 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 lawsuits. Mr. Marx and his team draw on his extensive experience and expert network to preserve and present compelling legal evidence.
Design defects, manufacturing defects, and insufficient warnings can all be grounds for a defective product lawsuit. Examples include defective airbags or even a warning label on a medication that omits key information. The defense often argues that there was no defect at all and that the injured person modified the product after buying it. Our law firm can identify who is liable for the defect, build a legal case against them, and prove the harm the defect caused you.
While financial compensation cannot reverse the tragic passing of a loved one, it can be necessary to rebuild the lives of the victim's surviving family. Our legal team seeks maximum compensation in wrongful death lawsuits. We can even pursue punitive damages which are awarded by the court to financially punish egregious behavior that caused the wrongful death.
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 we handle include failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis, surgical error, and delaying medically necessary treatment.
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. Our attorneys strive to protect sexual assault victims and help them recover from the depression, PTSD, and more that they suffer from.
