In Hawai‘i, "aloha" and "aloha spirit" are statutorily defined terms. Attorneys admitted to practice pro hac vice in Hawai‘i courts must comply with the "Guidelines of Professional Courtesy and Civility for Hawai‘i Attorneys".

Patty’s practice focuses on civil litigation.

She brings extensive experience representing corporate defendants in matters involving business and commercial litigation, Internet and e-commerce, class actions, premises liability, products liability, personal injury, insurance and contract disputes.

Patty facilitates the firm’s monthly Litigation Roundtables to discuss appellate case updates, court rules, practice pointers and evidentiary issues.


Patty appreciates Hawaii’s outdoor environments and enjoys swimming, surfing, hiking and cycling.
