The law firm of Galiher DeRobertis Waxman is committed to serving all of Hawai’i’s people, and we are proud to represent clients from every island. Although our head office is located on the island of Oahu, in the heart of Honolulu, we also have an office on Maui. We are never too far away from our neighbor island clients. If you are a Maui resident or visitor, and you are looking for an attorney to represent you on a serious personal injury case, we urge you to contact our firm. We would be happy to meet with you one Maui.
Galiher DeRobertis Waxman is well-known as one of most resourceful and aggressive law firms in the state of Hawai’i. Indeed, we have a nationwide reputation for being among the best in the business. Our firm has achieved settlements in the hundreds of millions, and even billions of dollars. We successfully recovered over $1.38 billion for the taxpayers of Hawai’i in the tobacco litigation, and helped achieve a $400 million nationwide settlement in a fraud case against Travelers Insurance Company. The Galiher law firm can truly offer the highest quality of litigation skills and experience to our Maui clients.
Our attorneys also have a strong personal connection to Maui County. Founder Gary Galiher lived for a number of years on the island of Molokai, and was intimately familiar with that beautiful island. Ilana Waxman was born and raised in Haiku, Maui, and is a proud graduate of Baldwin High School. With these deep local roots and our outstanding national reputation, the Galiher law firm is perfectly positioned to handle any serious personal injury case that arises on Maui.
The Galiher firm has represented numerous clients who were seriously injured on Maui, in cases that ranged from recreational injuries to occupational illness to automobile claims. We have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our Maui clients, including:
- A large confidential settlement for a woman who was paralyzed in a tragic downhill bicycle accident. Our client was on a downhill bicycle tour with her husband as part of their dream Maui vacation. Tragically, she lost control of the bike and crossed the double yellow line into an oncoming car. She was left paraplegic. After careful investigation, our attorneys were able to show that the tour leaders had failed to follow their own safety procedures.
- A confidential settlement for the children of a Lahaina auto mechanic who died of an occupational cancer after working with toxic products. Although his exposure took place three decades ago, our attorneys were able to track down former co-workers who had worked with our client at Maui Pine during the 1970s and 80s. Through our diligence, we were able to obtain a very significant recovery for his family.
