We Strive To Be The Best By Hiring The Best

Goodsill is a diverse firm providing a full range of legal services. As one of Hawai‘i’s oldest and largest firms, we’ve developed a strong base of local, national and international clients. We work in all the traditional areas of corporate law, plus a number of specialized areas.

We offer a competitive compensation plan and a collaborative, dynamic work environment, which results in legal work of the highest quality. We seek applicants who will contribute to that environment and strive to bring out the best in those around them.

In evaluating applicants, we are interested in well-rounded, personable individuals who have the ability to do challenging legal work, the personality to be effective dealing with clients and the potential to achieve excellence in the practice of law. In our hiring decisions, we do not discriminate on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, marital status, age, disability, race, color, religion, veteran status, citizenship, ancestry or national origin.

As a healthy balance, and with the full support of the firm, many of our attorneys are active in community organizations, continuing legal education programs, and the Hawai’i State Bar Association, as well as other professional organizations.

For inquiries regarding opportunities for attorneys, please send an email through this link. For inquiries regarding all other job opportunities, please contact Human Resources.

Please take some time to learn a little more about what it means to be a part of the Goodsill family, and we think you’ll understand exactly what we mean when we say “Hawai‘i is different. And so are we.”
