Bio

Robert S.N. Young has exceled as an established legal professional in Honolulu for decades. At Coates Frey Tanimoto & Gibson, AAL, LLLC, he concentrates on family law litigation, including divorce, child custody and support, post-decree enforcement, domestic violence, and temporary restraining orders. Robert’s previous experience is impressively extensive and the insight the positions awarded him is evident in his exceptional work and successful results.

Robert became a member of the Hawaii State Bar in 1978 and was effectively licensed to practice law in the Federal District of Hawaii and the Hawaii Supreme Court. He started off his career extraordinarily, as he served as attorney to the Vice-Speaker of the House of Representatives in 1979.

After that experience, Robert secured his role as Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for the City and County of Honolulu, handling misdemeanor, family, and felony prosecution until 1981.

Robert’s work started centering around family law when he worked as an attorney with the Legal Aid Society of Hawaii. Still, he was able to achieve broader experience as Managing Attorney for the Carpenter’s Union.

He went on to focus on insurance defense, commercial, and tort litigation with Shigemura & Ching and Kidani-Crudele. Robert then took his knowledge and experience with complex hazardous tort to serve as Deputy Attorney General litigating the asbestos property damage cases for the State of Hawaii between 1991 and 1994.

After his time in that role, Robert wore several hats for the Hawaii Housing Authority. From 1994-2006, he served as chief planner, grant writer, and legislative liaison.

Prior to joining our team at Coates Frey Tanimoto & Gibson, AAL, LLLC, Robert worked as an associate attorney in a general criminal and civil litigation practice at Bervar & Jones.
