Hello, my name is Dominique Malia Tansley and I am the lead attorney at Ohana Legal. I started my own Family Law firm because I wanted to practice law on a more personal level and use my skills to directly help people resolve their legal problems.
I have 18 years of legal experience working in Hawaii. When you hire me, you will be hiring a lawyer who is experienced and dedicated. I will take the time to listen to your concerns and answer your questions. I will explain the process and legal issues to you in plain English and provide a straightforward and honest assessment of your case.
On a personal note, I was born in Hawaii and moved back here after college and attended law school in Honolulu. I left a well-paid position at a corporate law firm to practice law on a more personal level (and have more of a personal life). When I am not at the office, I love to go hiking around Oahu with my husband and two boys. I like to relax by working in my vegetable garden or reading a good book.
