Margery S. Bronster, Esq.

Ms. Bronster was the Attorney General for the State of Hawai'i from 1995-1999. During her term, she won widespread critical and public acclaim for successfully leading a years-long investigation into abuses by the trustees of the Kamehameha Schools/Bishop Estate charitable trust, the largest private trust in the country. That effort led to the forced resignation of four of the five trustees and a complete overhaul of the Trust's administration and the manner in which the trustees were selected. She also won a multi-billion dollar Master Settlement Agreement from tobacco companies on behalf of the State of Hawai'i. Ms. Bronster graduated from Brown University and the Columbia University Law School, where she was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar. Following her career as Attorney General, she became a founding partner of Bronster Hoshibata, and she has continued her work in a broad variety of litigation and counseling matters including complex commercial litigation, government law, trust and estate litigation, investor losses and antitrust litigation. Ms. Bronster's accomplishments in these areas have been recognized by international, national, and local organizations, and she recently served as an expert witness on Hawai'i law before the Supreme Court of Singapore. She is a recipient of the: Profiles in Courage Award, Conference of Western Attorneys General, 2000 (Southerwestern Bell); Kelly- Wyman Award for Outstanding Attorney General, 1999 (National Association of Attorneys General); Fellow of the Pacific Award for Outstanding Service to the Community, 2000 (Hawai'i Pacific University); "Advocate of the Year" - American Cancer Society Hawai'i Chapter, 1999; Top Cop - State of Hawai'i Law Enforcement Coalition of Police Officers and Security Personnel, 1999; and "Woman Lawyer of the Year", Hawai'i Women Lawyers.
