Drug charges are one of the most common criminal charges in Maui County. Every year hundreds of people are charged and arrested for violating Hawaii’s complex and often confusing drug laws. If you are one of these people, you need a Maui Drug offense attorney that is experienced in our state’s laws and someone who will fight like hell to protect your rights.

Kristin is a veteran Maui drug offense lawyer who has successfully prosecuted or defended hundreds of clients facing felony and misdemeanor drug charges. Kristin will begin fighting for your rights and brings her over 23 years of courtroom experience to your case from the moment you retain her.

We will defend your case using every weapon at our disposal to seek the best possible alternatives for you including:

  • Motions to suppress evidence in cases of illegal search and seizure of evidence collected during car stops, searches of property, pat down searches, and home searches.
  • Aggressively challenging search warrants.
  • Plea negotiations with prosecutors.
  • Negotiation of drug diversion programs

Too often, arresting officers and prosecutors will inappropriately seek felony charges, including possession with intent to sell, because of the amount of drugs found or the possession of paraphernalia.

Seeking a reduction in charges can have a dramatic impact on a case and can open up treatment options, including Drug Diversion programs for clients who might otherwise be facing significant jail time, fines, and other criminal penalties.

If you are facing drug charges, contact Empire Law for a free and confidential appointment to discuss your rights.

“I am so grateful for your passion, dedication, and professionalism.  I’ve hired attorneys before but you are truly the best I’ve ever worked with.  Thank you so much!  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the amazing legal work you did for me and my family.”


“Kristin came into my life when I was on pretty shaky ground. Her support, professionalism, dedication, and generous heart allowed me to get my life back. I could trust her and knew that I had a real partner in a very uncertain time. I felt like I had a sister fighting for me and nothing got past her. To say I recommend her feels like an understatement. I am eternally grateful to have been represented by Kristin and for the outcome of my case.”


‘I had never been in any situation where I needed a lawyer until this past August. Recommended by an Oahu attorney and a personal friend here on Maui, I reached out to Empire Law. Kristin had me at ease with the first phone call! She had my case sorted out immediately and explained everything in terms I could understand. Not only was she able to successfully defend me from an unjust accusation, her empathetic ways towards me and my family offered unexpected emotional support. In a Courtroom setting, her knowledge, fierce presence, and professionalism made me feel confident and at ease. My family and I are eternally grateful to Kristin and we would highly recommend her and Empire Law.”
