Galiher DeRobertis & Waxman is a nationally-renowned personal injury law firm. In business for more than 35 years, we are proud to be Hawaii’s leading advocate for the little guy. Our firm’s hard work, legal acumen, and dedication have enabled us to recover over $1 billion on behalf of our injured clients.
We Put Our Clients First
We have represented hundreds of individuals and recognize that your medical care comes before all else. Through our legal work, we consult with the foremost doctors in this area and remain abreast of the latest research and medical treatments. We provide our clients with as much information as possible about their medical concerns. While our information is not a substitute for medical advice, we recognize how important it is for our clients to have as much medical information as possible, so they and their doctor can make the best choice for your care and treatment.
Dedication to Our Clients
Gary Galiher, our founder, built our law firm on a solid foundation of dedication to our clients. We know how a serious injury or death affects the whole family. For over three decades we have carefully and compassionately protected the interests of our clients through the Hawaii legal system. We provide personal and respectful attention to our clients. Our clients are not cases: they are people dear to us, whose well-being we genuinely care about.
Experienced Trial Lawyers with Multi-Million Dollar Results
Galiher DeRobertis & Waxman attorneys have over 150 years of combined legal experience. With 250+ jury trials under our belts, our attorneys have a deserved reputation for successfully fighting for the little guy. The firm’s track record of multi-million dollar jury trial verdicts is key to our ability to secure high settlements in those cases that do not proceed to trial.
Significant Financial Resources
In today’s legal system, very few personal injury cases result in a jury trial. The primary reason for this is that most Hawaii firms and solo practitioners simply do not have the experience or resources necessary to litigate a case to a jury verdict. We have the funds to succeed against insurance companies and other well-financed entities. With our significant financial means, we do not cut corners. At Galiher DeRobertis & Waxman, we hire the nation’s most preeminent experts to prove our clients’ cases.
We Have Decades of Experience
The lawyers and paralegals at our firm have worked together on thousands of asbestos cases. We will bring decades of collective experience to help you and your family. Our founder, Gary Galiher, brought one of the first mesothelioma cases in the country and was among the first lawyers to investigate and develop the case against the asbestos companies. Each member of the firm has developed a unique understanding of the medical and legal issues surrounding mesothelioma. As a result, we have extensive resources and experience related to all issues involved in these cases, including asbestos products, job sites, industry knowledge, asbestos hazards, and mesothelioma diagnosis and treatment, to name just a few. Our team approach will lead to the most favorable outcome of your case.
Track Record of Success
When a law firm has a long-established history of being awarded large jury verdicts at trial, the insurance companies think twice. Insurance companies are in the risk assessment business — they back off when they know that a law firm is willing and able to go to trial. Attorneys who are accomplished jury trial practitioners receive larger settlements. Insurance companies simply do not want the risk of a jury trial when they are going up against top trial attorneys who have the resources to work tirelessly so that their clients can receive the maximum recovery possible.
Highly Skilled Support Staff
The veteran staff at Galiher DeRobertis & Waxman contribute greatly to our proven track record of success. Unlike smaller firms or solo practitioners, our attorneys are backed by a well-trained and skilled support staff. Paralegals, investigators, secretaries, administrators, information technology experts, and an experienced medical director all work in tandem to assist our clients. Our office located at 610 Ward Avenue in Honolulu, Hawaii, is furnished with modern, cutting-edge technology to help us do our job for you.
