Rafael has dedicated his legal career to helping others. As a domestic violence prosecutor for the City and County of Honolulu, he advocated on behalf of victims of child abuse, romantic partner abuse, and murder. Rafael’s goal was always to give a voice to the voiceless and he worked with the courts to improve the treatment of victims in the criminal justice system. As a supervisor in the prosecutor’s office, Rafael mentored and trained a team of trial attorneys and encouraged them in their legal careers.
Since coming to Leavitt, Yamane & Soldner, Rafael has turned his attention and skills to seeking civil justice on behalf of our clients. He fights with heart and mind because he believes in helping people.
