Stacy Y. Ma

Hawai‘i is a small legal community; you find yourself repeatedly working with the same attorneys—both as co-counsel and on the opposite side of cases—which means practicing with Aloha everyday.

Stacy concentrates her practice in the area of civil litigation, with a focus on personal injury, premises liability, commercial litigation and medical malpractice defense.

Prior to joining Goodsill, she worked as an associate in the litigation department of Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP in New York City, where her practice focused on complex commercial litigation, securities litigation and shareholder derivative suits for privately and publicly held companies and their directors and officers.

Stacy has advised financial services clients in regulatory investigations and enforcement proceedings brought by government and regulatory agencies, including the SEC and FINRA.


Stacy is not only a top litigator, she's also a top chef who knows a thing or two about making homemade pastas and ice cream. When she’s not experimenting in the kitchen, she enjoys spending time with her husband, two young sons and golden retriever (preferably on the beach).
