A Dedicated Honolulu, Hawaii Civil Rights Lawyer

We stand for truth, justice and the American way
Together we stand!
Together we fight!
Together  we demand our equal rights!

In the American system of justice, too many cases slip through the cracks — time-barred by failure to report the incident in time or evidence-barred by failure to produce a legally sufficient level of proof. Procedural and substantive hurdles are surmountable at Shawn A. Luiz Attorney at Law. I understand the law and handle state and federal claims.  I am proud to provide our clients with insightful advice and sound logic as they pursue justice through the judicial system.

Advocating for your individual freedoms

The freedom to speak your mind and assert your rights is granted to you as an American through the Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution. These rights are constitutionally protected and incorporated against the state under the Fourteenth Amendment. If you believe these rights have been violated, I encourage you to schedule an appointment with me. I handle claims relating to:

  • 1st amendment — freedoms of religion, speech, press, petition, peaceable assembly and association
  • 2nd amendment — right to bear arms
  • 3rd amendment — refusal to quarter of soldiers
  • 4th amendment — unreasonable search and seizure
  • 5th amendment — protect yourself against self incrimination and double jeopardy
  • 5th amendment — due process
  • 6th amendment — right to a fair and speedy trial by jury
  • 7th amendment — right to trial by jury in some civil cases
  • 8th amendment — refusal to pay excessive fines, concede to jail time, or undergo cruel and unusual punishment
  • 9th amendment — unenumerated rights reserved to the States
  • 10th amendment — limitation of federal powers to those defined within the Constitution
  • 14th amendment — right to due process and equal protection, incorporated against the States

Advocating for your constitutional protections

Discrimination claims are sometimes difficult to prove. The failure to file your claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) within the statutory filing period may cost you the right to even have your case heard.  Contact me as soon as possible when you have suffered any of the following types of discrimination:

  • Age discrimination (ADEA)
  • Disability discrimination (ADA)
  • Equal compensation (Title VII, EPA, Lily Ledbetter Act, FLSA)
  • Genetic information (The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008)
  • National origin (Title VII)
  • Pregnancy (Title VII, FMLA)
  • Racial or ethnic discrimination (Title VII)
  • Religious discrimination (Title VII)
  • Sexual harassment (Title VII)
