Leavitt, Yamane & Soldner would like to congratulate Attorney Mike
Cruise on two of his latest accomplishments. First and foremost, Attorney
Cruise has been named to The Best Lawyers in Hawai’i list for 2017
by Honolulu Magazine. He is also now a shareholder of Leavitt, Yamane
Our firm is thrilled at Mike’s distinction among the Best Lawyers
in state, as it speaks volumes about his exceptional legal abilities and
proven record of success helping the injured and the wronged throughout
Honolulu and all islands. His inclusion to the list also places him among the
top 8 percent of all practicing lawyers in Hawaii.
By recognizing top rated attorneys, Honolulu Magazine provides a trusted
resource locals and others can turn to when they are searching for the
best attorney to handle their legal needs. The magazine uses a list cultivated
by Woodward/White, publishers of The Best Lawyers® in America, and
a nationally regarded peer review rating service that has been recognizing
the most accomplished lawyers for over 30 years.
Attorneys named to the prestigious Best Lawyers list are hand-picked using
a unique and intensive peer-review methodology which consists of:
- Nominations from clients or fellow legal practitioners who have seen the
attorney’s work in action.
- A multi-phase peer review evaluation in which lawyers who have been previously
selected to the Best Lawyers list review and provide feedback on the caliber
of a nominee’s work, professional abilities, and legal services.
- Analysis of feedback from legal peers to ensure only the best lawyers in
a given practice area in their community are selected.
- Eligibility review that evaluates an attorney’s record, ethical conduct,
and current standing with the state bar association.
The selection process is designed to ensure that the final list is truly
a list of experienced, trustworthy, and highly accomplished lawyers that
can be utilized to vet attorneys. Over the years, legal consumers have
come to trust this list during the attorney selection process, which can
be one of the most important elements of any case. Choosing the right
lawyer can make all the difference, and having a resource such as the
Best Lawyers list can make consumers feel confident not only in their
choice for representation, but also in the fact that their case will be
in highly capable hands.
In addition to being named to The Best Lawyers in Hawai’i list for
2017 in the area of
personal injury, Mike is now a shareholder of Leavitt, Yamane & Soldner. His contributions
to the firm and to our many satisfied clients over the years have been
a driving force behind our continued success. As a shareholder, Mike will
play an important role in furthering our firm’s mission of helping
