Criminal Defense

As a Wailuku, HI criminal defense attorney, Anthony Ranken has been actively defending those accused of criminal offenses since the beginning of his career as a trial lawyer 34 years ago. Criminal defense has always accounted for 15 to 40 percent of his legal practice. In addition to achieving numerous dismissals and no-jail settlements for his clients, Anthony Ranken has amassed a solid winning record at trial, having achieved more than twice as many acquittals (“not guilty” verdicts) as convictions. Mr. Ranken has a strong winning record on appeal as well, which includes several groundbreaking victories upholding and expanding the protection of Fourth Amendment rights (the constitutional right to freedom from unreasonable search and seizure).

Anthony Ranken’s decades of experience benefit his clients through his deep understanding of Hawaii’s criminal justice system and his established relationships with the Maui judges and opposing counsel. Mr. Ranken represents clients in a full range of criminal cases, from misdemeanors to drug offenses to the most serious felonies (including the ten homicide charges he has defended over the course of his career.) As a Wailuku, HI criminal defense attorney, he welcomes the challenge of even the toughest cases. (Please note our practice does not include traffic charges or DUI, but we are happy to provide a referral to the best attorneys on Maui for such charges.)

Criminal convictions can go on a person’s record and result in jail time, fines, restitution, probation, or a combination of these potential consequences. If you have been charged with a crime, it is imperative that you contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
