From time to time, we've posted job openings here in the legal field in Honolulu. But never an opening on our home turf.
Well today, we're soliciting applications for a litigation associate in our law firm, Damon Key Leong Kupchak Hastert. We're not going to reprint the official job posting ("challenging and rewarding environment, strong writing and research skills, salary commensurate with experience, plays well with others," & etc., etc.), since if you are reading this post, you likely already understand what we do. For a wider flavor of the firm's work (we don't just do land use, condemnation, appeals, and election law, but also commercial litigation, construction, maritime, and pretty much anything that requires courtroom skills), check out our colleagues' law blogs, insurancelawhawaii.com, hawaiioceanlaw.com, and hawaiiconstructionlaw.com.
We prefer lawyers who are already members of the Hawaii Bar, but we're not ruling out those who would sit for the July 2017 exam. Clerkship and law review experiences a plus but not essential, since we're looking for lawyers who actually are practicing law, not paper tigers.
Interested? Send your materials (CV or resume, cover letter) to me, in confidence. We have aggressive junk mail filters, so if you do not receive acknowledgement of receipt within a reasonably short time, either send again or call the office (808-531-8031) and ask for me.
