Hilo Office

It is very difficult to put into words my respect and admiration for Mr. Okura without sounding like a relative. The staff was always polite and very efficient. Mr. Okura always returns calls and treats each of his cases with equal importance. Mr. Okura is very knowledgeable in his field and I felt very satisfied with his manner in handling our legal affairs. Mr. Okura handled the legal matters for my family as well as my parents. We are all happy that we listened to the recommendations made to us from some of his other clients.

Very professional. Mr. Okura was very warm and personable. Staff very friendly, everyone said hello, greeted us and very professional. I also liked that we were seen in a timely fashion, did not have to wait long. Professionals I have dealt with in the past acted professional but were very aloof. I very much appreciated the warmness, quiet tones that were used to be confidential, although no other clients were around. My parents also commented on the great treatment they received.

There are lawyers, and there are lawyers, but Mr. Okura is the BEST of the BEST. He has helped me tremendously and he is like family in my eyes. Being a lay person, not knowing or understanding the terms was difficult for me. Mr. Okura explained and helped me to understand so I was able to make the right decisions. I can’t thank him enough.
