Video: Should I Talk to the Police After an Arrest?

Length: 01:20
Upload Date: May 24th, 2018
If you’ve been arrested, you have the right to remain silent. If you invoke your Miranda rights, law enforcement cannot question you until you consult an Honolulu attorney. If you decide to talk, you can cut off questioning at any time and invoke your rights by announcing that you intend to remain silent and that you want to see an attorney.

A non-compete agreement is a contractual provision that prevents workers from starting a competing business or going to work for a competitor after they leave a position. Non-compete clauses can be part of an initial employment contract or signed at a later date. An Honolulu employment attorney in your area can help you understand your rights and restrictions under a non-compete agreement.

Under federal law, workplace discrimination occurs when you are treated differently at work due to your sex, race, color, national origin, religion, disability, age (40 and older), or citizenship status. When an employer demonstrates discriminatory intent in hiring, promoting, and disciplining workers based on their status as members of a protected class or category, affected workers may have grounds for a claim. A Honolulu employment attorney can explain how workplace discrimination could apply to your situation.

Under state and federal law, serious crimes are generally called “felonies” and less serious crimes are “misdemeanors.” Each of these categories can also have classes or levels, depending on the relative seriousness of the offense and the stringency of the punishment. If you’ve been charged with a felony, a Honolulu criminal defense attorney in your area can explain your rights and what to expect.

Video: What is “at-will” Employment?

Length: 01:33
Upload Date: May 10th, 2018
Employment “at will” means that your employer can terminate your employment at any time for almost any reason — or even for no reason at all. Generally, workers are considered at-will employees unless they have an employment contract stating otherwise. But employment contracts don’t have to be written; a court can enforce oral employment contracts. A Honolulu employment attorney can explain how at-will employment fits your particular circumstances.

You can typically expect the police to fingerprint you, take your mugshot and administer a blood alcohol test at the station. If the prosecutor files charges, you will likely have to go to court several times and choose between plea negotiations with the prosecutor or going to trial. A Honolulu attorney can help you weigh the pros and cons of each alternative

Video: What are the Elements of a Hostile Work Environment Claim?

Length: 01:46
Upload Date: May 10th, 2018
Hostile work environment is unlawful harassment that happens when unwelcome conduct is severe or pervasive enough to interfere with an employee’s ability to do their job. Offensive comments or conduct must relate to a characteristic protected under federal or state law, and the behaviors must typically continue over a period of time. A Honolulu employment attorney can explain whether the facts of your case might form the basis of a hostile work environment claim.

Even if you’ve been falsely accused of a crime, you should contact a criminal defense lawyer, who can protect your rights. Our criminal justice system is adversarial by nature, and unrepresented defendants are at a significant disadvantage against a professional prosecutor, even when they are completely innocent. Even if you aren’t ready to hire a Honolulu attorney, you can consult one on a limited basis and still enjoy full attorney-client privilege.
