  • Find out how to attract new law firm clients and keep the ones you have!

    Register today for a law firm brand awareness & market survey breakfast with the HSBA and Pacific Business News. The event is free for HSBA members.

    In December 2012, PBN independently commissioned a survey with third-party research company, Readex, to find out more about Hawaii's law firms by polling a portion of the PBN subscriber base.

    Bob Charlet, publisher of Pacific Business News and Michelle Stofle, advertising manager, will present the recent survey and answer questions regarding the process.
