Representing RICO And VCAR Clients In Honolulu And Throughout Hawaii.
RICO (Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) is actually a particular term used for a wide range of severe white collar criminal offenses such as money laundering, bankruptcy fraud, insurance fraud, bribery, counterfeiting, theft and a large variety of other serious federal crimes, such as drug and firearms charges. Whenever charged under the RICO act, this is a really serious legal issue and urgent action should be taken to protect and defend your freedom and legal rights by contacting, as well as hiring, legal counsel who is a experienced Honolulu Hawaii criminal defense lawyer.
In a number of cases, analysis of federal government investigations that are usually intent upon fighting organized RICO criminal activity can lead to the discovery of violations of the constitutional and legal rights of the accused in search and seizure violations or other constitutional or procedural violations that can serve as a basis for the defense or dismissal of the charges. This is only one of the feasible strategies for the particular defense of the accused in RICO charges. This may also necessitate the help of expert witnesses or perhaps an independent investigation in order to prevent a conviction. In every court case, the full assets of attorney Rick Holcomb and his legal team will always be put to use in order to discover how to best move ahead with a formidable defense of a criminal charge.
Criminal Defense Trial Attorney Representing Clients In Honolulu Hawaii.

Every legal and ethical effort should be taken in order to be able to defend you, and attorney Rick Holcomb will relentlessly engage in every legal and ethical method of defense feasible in your case, and will negotiate to minimize the damage to your future if this is required.

A+++Lawyer!!! Mr. Richard Holcomb and his agency helped me to get out from under the clutches of two creditors who threatened to sue me for funds I may not have even owed them. Mr. Holcomb kept me informed the whole way and got me two great settlements, even if it meant his firm got less.

What is Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence of an Intoxicant?
This is Hawaii’s DUI law. You can be convicted of OVUII if you operate or have physical control of a vehicle and any of the following is true:
- You have an alcohol concentration of 0.08 on either a breath or blood test; or
- Your mental faculties are impaired by any amount of alcohol; or
- Your ability to operate a vehicle carefully is impaired by any amount of drugs.
As you can see, you don’t have to blow a certain number to be convicted of drunk driving in Hawaii. It will be enough if any amount of drugs or alcohol impairs your ability to drive safely.
Can I refuse to take a breathalyzer?
Yes. However, Hawaii (like virtually every other state) has an implied consent law. Essentially, this means you consent to take a breathalyzer when you accept a driver’s license. If you refuse to take the test, your license gets suspended for at least a year. That’s even if you aren’t convicted of DUI/OVUII.
Will I go to jail for a first-time DUI offense?
It’s possible, though not certain. If this is your first DUI offense, or the first in a five-year period, a judge can sentence you to 72 hours of community service, a fine between $150-1,000, or between 2 and 5 days in jail. Judges have discretion, so you might only receive the fine or community service or both and avoid any time in jail.
Will I lose my license for a DUI/OVUII conviction?
Yes. Your license will be revoked for one year if you are convicted of OVUII. However, you might qualify for a restricted license with the installation of an ignition interlock device.
