A Criminal Defense You Can Count On

Our Wailuku and Maui, 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).
