Hawaii’s Trusted Family
Sophisticated Solutions From Seasoned Family Lawyers
Hamilton and Chan LLC is a brand-new family law firm in Honolulu founded by Geoffrey Hamilton and Jennifer Chan, two very seasoned and experienced, highly accomplished attorneys who practiced family law together at another larger firm in Honolulu for a combined 40 years.
At Hamilton and Chan LLC, our attorneys always offer sound legal advice to help you put your best foot forward and will always stand up for the results you deserve in your case. We represent clients throughout the State of Hawaii, including Kona, Hilo, Maui and Kauai. We represent clients in both mediation and litigation.
We Are Distinguished By Our Credentials
Our legal team has been recognized not only in Honolulu, but also across the State of Hawaii and the entire United States.
Geoffrey Hamilton, a graduate of Duke Law School, is “AV-rated” in Martindale-Hubbell, has been recognized in the Best Lawyers in America every year since 1983 and has been selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers. He is a certified fellow in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, has been twice elected chairperson of the Family Law Section of the Hawaii State Bar Association and was Honolulu Magazine’s Family Lawyer of the Year in 2011.

See Why People Across Hawaii Trust Hamilton and Chan LLC
Our attorneys understand the painful, difficult, emotional aspects of separation and divorce, and how it affects the children involved. We also understand the financial strain that a divorce imposes on the typical family. Given our experience and our credentials, we offer our clients realistic, sophisticated and practical solutions to their separation and divorce issues.
We’ll tell you how to protect your children from the pain, sadness and disorientation of separating. We’ll give you a “game plan” for the divorce and help you implement it. If, at the outset, settlement on favorable terms is likely, we pursue that either through direct negotiations or through mediation. If that doesn’t work, we provide strong, effective, articulate representation in court.
