DON’T TRUST JUST ANY LAWYER WITH YOUR FREEDOM!

In Hawaii, drug crimes, even those involving just drug residue, can be charged as felonies. Detectives and prosecutors often ask for harsher punishments based on many different factors. In many cases, there is a thin line between an accusation of mere possession and the more serious charge of distribution. With so much at stake, it’s important to consult with a criminal defense attorney who has decades of experience handling crimes involving these charges.

At the Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm, our attorneys have the experience and knowledge to represent people charged with serious drug crimes. Don’t trust your freedom to an inexperienced criminal defense attorney or one who dabbles in criminal law. We have been firmly committed to representing people charged with drug crimes since 1994.

If you have been charged with any type of drug crime in Hawaii, Email us or call our office at 808-647-2423 and our experienced team of criminal defense lawyers will help you come up with the best solutions for your case.

I am new to AOR, having just joined a few days ago (May 2024). I am very impressed with their... customer service; kudos to Braeden Victor, Mike Wasdin, and the others who have assisted me via the Support email team. Being new to self defense, I had tons of questions about the contract, emergency form, and general questions. Some were probably not the most intelligent, but everyone treated me with respect and answered issues they have probably answered a thousand times. I sincerely hope I never have to use the firm, but if I do, I feel confident in receiving the best service.read more
