Tanya David is an associate attorney who assists clients from Japan and other countries, as well as domestic clients, in the areas of real estate transactions, corporate matters, and captive insurance law.

During law school, Tanya clerked for the Honorable Judge Garret Wong of the San Francisco Superior Court. In 2019, she attended Waseda Law School in Tokyo, Japan. Tanya received her Bachelor of Sciences degree from Syracuse University with honors and her law degree from University of California Hastings College of the Law. While at Hastings, Tanya served as a member of the American Constitutional Society, Hastings Hawai‘i Hui, and the Women’s Law Society. She also served as the editor for the Hastings Constitutional Law Quarterly Journal.


Tanya was born in Tokyo and moved to Hawai‘i at the age of four. Despite moving away at such a young age, she retained her reading, writing and speaking abilities through concentrated Japanese language studies and frequent visits to Japan to study and work. In her free time, Tanya enjoys surfing, hiking and spending time with her dogs at the beach.

“Growing up in Hawai‘i is an incredibly unique experience where we as a community are defined by our multicultural backgrounds-all of which enrich our lives and create a robust sense of pride and Aloha.”
