Alyssa R. Segawa is a native of Honolulu, Hawaii, and an attorney at Galiher DeRobertis & Waxman. Alyssa’s practice concentrates on asbestos litigation, personal injury, product liability, Roundup litigation, appellate and federal practice matters. She has a particular interest in helping victims of mesothelioma seek justice through the legal system.
When Alyssa was 16, her grandfather, a retired pipefitter at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard, passed away from mesothelioma. All she knew at the time was that his cancer was rare and was caused by asbestos. It was quite serendipitous when she was offered a position at the same law firm that represented her grandparents for their claims against the asbestos industry. She knows what the families of the Galiher firm’s clients are going through and works hard to make sure that they can enjoy their time with loved ones.
Alyssa graduated cum laude from UCLA and was awarded her Juris Doctor degree magna cum laude from the University of Hawaii at Manoa in Honolulu. She is a member of the Hawaii State Bar Association, the American Association for Justice and the Hawaii Association for Justice.
