Hawaii Criminal Defense Attorneys Zealously Represent Clients Facing Criminal Charges

Experienced Hilo lawyers defend people accused of all types of crimes

Anyone who has ever faced criminal charges in Hawaii knows the importance of having a passionate defense attorney on their side. When you are facing serious charges, it is critical that you are not rushed through the process by a defense attorney who hopes to resolve the case as quickly as possible so they can move on to the next one. At the Law Offices of Brian J. DeLima in Hilo, we have nearly 40 combined years of experience representing those who have been accused of crimes, and we take pride in protecting their rights and giving them the best chance at a positive resolution. Whatever the circumstances in your case, we will examine the details and aggressively advocate on your behalf to protect your rights, your freedom and your reputation.

Handling the full range of criminal charges

We represent clients who are charged with a wide variety of crimes on our islands, including felonies. Besides incarceration, felonies carry significant collateral consequences, including driver’s license suspension and loss of other privileges, loss of employment, disqualification from public benefits, housing restrictions and immigration repercussions.

We fight to avert all felony convictions; however, when they are unavoidable, we do everything we can to limit the effects they have on our clients’ lives. Legally speaking, misdemeanors are less serious than felony offenses. However, when you are facing criminal prosecution, any case is serious. We fight every case with the same vigor, regardless of the seriousness of the offense, including:

  • Sexual offenses — If you are facing allegations of rape or sexual assault, it is critical to have a criminal defense attorney with knowledge of the special handling these cases require and the serious consequences of conviction on such charges.
  • Drug crimes —Hawaii’s criminal law punishes the possession, distribution and trafficking of all narcotics, including marijuana. We may be able to make a motion to suppress illegally seized items or to obtain a reduction or dismissal of charges. .
  • Motor vehicle offenses — Our firm can provide valuable assistance if you’ve been accused of any motor vehicle offense, from driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) to vehicular manslaughter.

For any criminal defense matter, our attorneys are ready to stand by you from the beginning of the case until its resolution.
