Case Notes

 

Penalty for first offense is only a violation. 68 H. 226, 708 P.2d 138 (1985).

Where Oregon law firm did not "practice law within the jurisdiction" of Hawaii, it did not violate 605-14 nor this section; thus, plaintiff could recover fees under 607-14 for services rendered by firm. 87 H. 37, 951 P.2d 487 (1998).
