Choosing the firm where you will build your career is an important decision. 

Here’s why you should choose Cades:

Excellence
If there is a single trait all Cades attorneys have in common, it is the drive to provide exceptional results and be leaders in the legal community.

Opportunities
Our broad client base yields opportunities to work on a rich variety of matters, including some of the most sophisticated cases and transactions in Hawai‘i and in the nation. Few Hawai‘i law firms, if any, can match the breadth and depth of the legal work that Cades attorneys handle for their clients. Our attorneys are also able to tap into the wealth of expertise and experience within the firm to find solutions to the most demanding legal problems.

Stability
Cades is the most stable firm of its size in Hawai‘i. Never since its founding in 1922 has the firm experienced a major split in its partnership. No group of three or more attorneys has ever left Cades to form another firm or legal practice. Cades’ institutional strength flows from its emphasis on developing its attorneys “from the ground up,” its democratic approach to management, and a firm culture that rewards merit, promotes collegiality, and embraces diversity.

Integrity
Deeply ingrained in our firm culture is the belief that best practices in the legal profession include a high regard for ethics. We emphasize character in our firm policies and training. Our reputation is not just for good work, but for integrity and responsible advocacy as well.

Flexibility
Cades understands that a one-size-fits-all approach rarely works, whether in finding solutions to our clients’ legal problems or maintaining a healthy work environment. Cades’ progressive workplace initiatives recognize that during a career spanning many years, attorneys will need flexibility as their lives change and their families grow.
