Civil & Business Litigation

You pay no legal fees to us if we do not assist you in getting some compensation or recovery as we agree should we accept your case. The Law Offices of James J. Stone provides creative solutions to complex civil and commercial problems for both large and small businesses in Honolulu and throughout Hawaii. While we have worked with large global corporations, we also have strong ties to our local community and have represented many small and medium-sized businesses. We understand the different needs and challenges that smaller businesses face, particularly in difficult economic times, and provide quality legal services at affordable rates. If you own a smaller business and feel you have been unfairly taken advantage of by a larger company, we have the experience and knowledge to assist you. We leverage technology and resources to efficiently and effectively take on representation against larger companies.
