Fighting the Governor’s Executive Orders on COVID in Hawaii

Attorney Marc J. Victor

Attorney Marc J. Victor recently argued at the Hawaii Court of Appeals that the Hawaii Governor’s endless emergency proclamations over COVID are illegal and unconstitutional. Governor Ige’s emergency proclamation was supposed to expire after 60 days, at which point the legislature should get involved to decide when an emergency is no longer an emergency. But it would seem Governor Ige would like to have sole discretion to make this decision by declaring another emergency after another emergency on exactly the same facts.

Attorney Victor points out that the governor should not have this unchecked power, and that the legislature should get involved after 60 days. The legislature should be the ones to decide when the emergency is over, not the Governor in his sole discretion. The legislature is the voice of the people and should be the ones to make the decision, not the governor. This is how our system of government works. We don’t give dramatic expansive powers to one person and then allow this person in their sole discretion to decide when to relinquish that power.

The Attorneys For Freedom law firm has been defending the rights of the citizens of Hawaii against government overreach during the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to do so.

I hired Attorneys For Freedom in 2020 for a very serious matter involving my significant other. I... spent a couple of hours calling around looking for attorneys and the ONLY attorney willing to talk to me on behalf of my significant other was Andy Marcantel. It was end of day and he took the time, to speak to me and to myself, my significant other and his family, the next day as well.I knew immediately, I wanted to hire Andy for this serious matter. My significant other was facing serious time and we were both terrified. I trusted Andy and his team to get the absolute, best, possible outcome. From the very beginning, Andy was nothing short of truthful, communicative, professional, informative, kind and hilarious.I would email Andy late at night with concerns or questions and he would communicate back immediately just to let me know he was scheduling us a meeting the next day to go over everything. For almost 2 years, Andy and his team worked diligently on this case and about 3 weeks ago, it went to court for the last time and my significant other received the BEST outcome possible. Considering what he was facing, I will never be able to thank Andy properly for his work but what I can do, is let EVERYONE know, if you’re in need of a law firm, I HIGHLY recommend Attorneys For Freedom. You will not be disappointed.There is so much integrity, kindness and care in that office.Attorneys For Freedom holds true to their mission statement and their values.Andy, I cannot thank you enough for everything and the time and effort you took to ensure we understood every single part of the case and the justice system. I’m eternally grateful to you.read more

I had my doubts at the beginning, Andy, is one of the best guys I have known. He answers every... question I ask, he is there from start to finish. He has a client now for the rest of my life, if anything were to happen. I cannot be more happier with the way these guys run their businessread more
