Hawaiians Hail AG Appointment

 WASHINGTON - Governor Neil Abercrombie appointed David M. Louie as Attorney General for the State of Hawaii. After confirmation by the Hawaii State Senate, Mr. Louie will be one of only two currently serving Asian Pacific American Attorneys General in the nation.

"We are proud and excited that one of NAPABA's very own has been selected as Attorney General for the State of Hawaii. David Louie has shown great leadership and commitment to NAPABA, and I am confident that he will show Hawaii the same leadership and commitment as Attorney General," praised Paul O. Hirose, president of NAPABA.

Prior to his appointment, Mr. Louie was the NAPABA Northwest Regional Governor from 2008-2010 and President of the NAPABA Hawaii Chapter from 1992-1995. He has also served as President, Vice President, and Director of the Hawaii State Bar Association. Among his accomplishments, Mr. Louie has been named one of the Best Lawyers in America (2011) and a Hawaii Super Lawyer (2008-Present). He was also one of the Hawaii Lawyer Representatives for the United States Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and Chairman of the State of Hawaii Aloha Tower Development Corporation. Mr. Louie is currently a trial attorney with the firm of Roeca, Louie & Hiraoka, and Vice Chair of the Hawaii Supreme Court Special Committee on Judicial Performance.

NAPABA congratulates Mr. Louie and commends Governor Neil Abercrombie for his appointment. NAPABA looks forward to continuing to work with Mr. Louie both as a leading NAPABA member and as Attorney General for the State of Hawaii.
