Dawn's work as an effective and no-nonsense litigator has earned her a loyal following of national and Hawaii- based clients.  Impressed by Dawn's ability to get to the crux of a case, clients take comfort in having Dawn help them navigate them through the discovery, trial, post-trial phases of a case, as well any appeal.  Her skill as a litigator as well as her track record with winning trial teams make her a client favorite.  Dawn handles premises liability work for some of the largest retailers in the country.


Dawn is efficient: she has to be.  As a mother of two boys involved in baseball and soccer, and as a volunteer and board member for several community organizations, she has no time to waste.  That efficiency carries over to her work: she's laser-focused on the most cost-effective path to reach the best outcome for her clients.  Her clients appreciate that. 

Dawn's peers also appreciate her talents: she was invited to join the International Association of Defense Counsel (IADC).
