At the start of their legal careers, before they founded Alston Floyd Hunt & Ing, some of our namesake attorneys cut their teeth on the law at the Legal Aid Society of Hawai`i. It was there that their commitment to community service began when they helped provide legal services for those who were most vulnerable and needed representation. As they gained experience and found new ways to challenge the State of Hawai`I to provide promised services to people, they learned that the real power of the law was to bring justice for everyone.
Those are the values that are the life blood of AHFI and we’ve never strayed from that commitment. Throughout our 25 year history, AHFI has taken on pro bono and public service cases that help people achieve justice. From fighting for tenants to live in safe housing, to ensuring the rights of handicapped children to receive a quality public education, to stopping the abuse of LGBT teens in correctional facilities, to successfully getting $14 million in back pay for substitute teachers – and many more – we’ve shown our commitment to social justice.
During our quarter century as a firm, AHFI attorneys and staff have been active in business and community organizations, serving as volunteers, members, board members, officers and legal advisors. Through this service, we have created a respected network of affiliations that benefit the community and our clients. These connections not only give us a broader perspective on how to make Hawai’i a better place to live and work, but may also serve as resources for you.
AHFI’s commitment to our clients and our community is unparalleled. We’re proud of the work we do and look forward to the challenge of helping you.
