Meet the Attorney

Licensed In


Practice areas

Business, Estate Planning, Family & Personal


Hi, I’m Ryan K. Hew.  My specific area(s) of practice are business entity formation, buying/selling of businesses, and compliance matters, such as licensing and permitting.  During my time as an attorney, I’ve come to really understand the phrase as “time is money” as it applies to my own practice, which I actively manage and run.

My proudest moment in my career has been serving as the President of the Hawaii State Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division. I’ve been able to serve Hawaii by providing community service projects to the public, as well as fellow attorneys through programming and benefits, such as educational seminars.

The value I provide clients is my ability to explain abstract legal concepts in real world terms and provide pragmatic options to their matter. In my spare time I enjoy dining, traveling, and playing video games.

Why I Practice Law

I was inspired to practice business law and assist small and medium-sized clients, as my grandfather started a business here in Honolulu as an immigrant, but had little resources to help him.

Fun Fact

I absolutely love corgis, my favorite dog breed.
