WISDOM AND EXPERIENCE
Sharon Paris moved to Hawaii in 2004 after receiving her undergraduate degrees in marketing and philosophy from the University of Pittsburgh. She worked in fundraising for a non-profit and marketing on a military base before deciding to pursue her dream of becoming a lawyer.
Sharon attended the evening, part-time program at the University of Hawai‘i William S. Richardson School of Law, while still working full-time and raising her daughter. She participated in the award-winning Hispanic Moot Court team and worked as an extern for Volunteer Legal Services Hawai‘i and Hawai‘i Supreme Court Chief Justice Mark E. Recktenwald. After graduating cum laude in December 2015, Sharon served as a law clerk to Hawai‘i Intermediate Court of Appeals Associate Judge Alexa D.M. Fujise.
Sharon’s goal in becoming an attorney was to understand the complex legal system and to help others navigate it during their difficult times. She is honored to have the opportunity to serve the community through her practice by pursuing justice for innocent victims who would otherwise have no voice.
