Note on Federal Criminal Defense both Daniel Horowitz and Markus Dombois are admitted to practice in the United States District Courts.  Besides having a piece of paper hanging on their wall, they have actually practiced in those jurisdictions (and for $ 100 and an application, you can get a certificate, so there is a difference !)

Hawaii Federal Court & State Courts

It is extremely difficult to be admitted to practice before the federal courts in Hawaii.  Markus Dombois has genuine roots in Hawaii and is admitted to practice there.  Daniel Horowitz is admitted and has actually practiced in numerous federal districts.  He has submitted appellate briefs in numerous federal courts of appeal and to the United States Supreme Court.

If you have a case in Hawaii, we can represent you.  In large cases in the Islands, they can actually run out of attorneys qualified to handled complex criminal cases.  We support the local Hawaiian bar and we urge you to "shop locally" if you can.  But if you cannot find the right lawyer for you in Hawaii, our team of lawyers can provide you with the best possible defense.
