Real Estate Litigation

Robert Badger knows and respects that when dealing with a property dispute, the stakes can be high and the results can be long lasting.  He has devised and implemented winning strategies in real estate issues arising from negligent and fraudulent sellers' disclosures, inaccurate or misleading environmental site assessments, land use and planning appeals, condominium disputes, and landlord tenants disputes.  

The depth of experience Mr. Badger gained in these matters allows him to bring unique perspectives to the problem of dividing or maintaining marital real estate, which often presents one of the most difficult elements in a couple's property division.


Bennett v. Chung​, 2015 Haw. App. LEXIS 614 (2015). Secured and confirmed an arbitration award in favor of purchasers of a residence who relied on sellers’ inaccurate disclosures about the condition of the property, and then discovered structural defects after closing. Matter is currently on appeal.

Hawaii Motorsports Investment, Inc. v. Bureau Veritas North America, Inc.​, 2010 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 89760, Civ. No. 09-00304 SOM BMK, and F. Supp. 2d 1192 (2010). Secured four partial summary judgments and an award of attorney’s fees and costs for an environmental consultant accused of issuing an inaccurate Phase 1 environmental assessment of an industrial property.


In re Hokulani Square, Inc.​, 413 B.R. 706 (2009). Represented attorney in a lien priority dispute who was accused of vicarious liability arising from a partner’s misrepresentations and failures to disclose.

Kapihe v. Mark Development, Inc.​, Case No. 1RC04-1-1574 (2005), ​affirmed​, 2008 Haw. App. LEXIS 217, ​affirmed​, 117 Haw. 355 (2008).

Family Law and Special Education Advocacy


We are experienced and aggressive litigators who are fully capable of resolving complex disputes from beginning to end without extensive client involvement.  But this is not our preferred approach.

Our logo represents the link we share with our clients that allows us to understand their needs and to accomplish their goals.  We recognize that our clients have diverse needs.

Your legal needs are unique.  We believe it is critical to inform you about the law and your choices, so that you can make informed choices about the important strategic issues that will affect your life long after our representation has ended.  We are experienced counsellors at law who take pride in our ability to manage procedural matters and provide legal advice.  We inform our clients about the law, the procedures, and the customs and practices of the courts and judges before them. 

But, more important than our ability to advocate, is our eagerness to listen.  When it comes to legal advice, one size does not fit all.  You have been embroiled with your dispute long before contacting us and know a great many things about it that we do not, so, your definition of success dictates the direction that we will take.  Because, we believe that after we have provided you with the knowledge necessary for you to make informed decisions, you should be the person who chooses how and on what terms your dispute is resolved.
