Fighting Federal Criminal Charges In Hawai’i
Federal crimes are often seen as more intimidating and serious than state-level charges – and for good reason. The federal criminal justice system is challenging, and slight missteps can result in extremely harsh outcomes. For this reason, many criminal defense lawyers focus only on state charges. If you’re facing a federal offense, you need a local lawyer who knows the federal system inside and out.
You will find that level of skill and experience at Harrison & Matsuoka. We defend clients from around the world facing federal charges in Hawaiʻi. Whether you live anywhere in the Hawaiian Islands, or you were arrested and charged with a federal offense while visiting Hawai’i, we can fight for your rights and freedom.
A Strong Defense Against All Kinds Of Federal Offenses
Our criminal defense lawyer has 30-plus years of experience fighting serious criminal charges. He routinely defends clients against charges in the U.S. District Court of Hawaiʻi, including:
- Federal drug charges such as trafficking, conspiracy and racketeering
- White collar charges such as mail and wire fraud, tax evasion, money laundering and other types of fraud

- Firearms offenses such as illegal sale or distribution or felon in possession of a firearm
Additionally, we represent military servicemembers facing federal crimes or courts-martial.
Convictions for many federal offenses trigger mandatory minimums – that is, a mandatory prison sentence without parole. Our defense lawyer understands the intricacies of federal sentencing and can strategize effective avenues for avoiding such harsh consequences.
