Cades Staffs Access to Justice Room at Honolulu District Court

Cades attorneys will staff the Access to Justice Room at Honolulu District Court for the entire month of July 2015.

The Access to Justice Room is a joint effort of the Hawai`i State Judiciary, the Hawai`i Access to Justice Commission, the Hawai`i State Bar Association, and the Legal Aid Society of Hawai`i.

The room is located on the third floor of the courthouse at 1111 Alakea Street and will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays.  The Access to Justice Room is staffed by a volunteer attorney and an AmeriCorps representative who will help self-represented litigants with short-term legal advice on civil matters, including, landlord tenant cases, collection cases, and temporary restraining order cases (which involve non-family members or parties who are not now, or have not been, in a dating relationship).

Members of the public should first seek help from the District Court Service Center.  Anyone seeking legal advice will then be referred to the Access to Justice Room.
