About Melinda K. Mendes

I am an experienced Trial Attorney who was born and raised in Hawaii. I entered private practice after serving 28 years in the public sector as a successful trial deputy prosecutor (26 years) and trial deputy public defender (almost 2 years). I aggressively protect my client's rights and interests with effective and personal representation in OVUII/DUI, and Criminal defense, as well as TROs and Restaining Orders.

I graduated from Kahuku High and Elementary School, the University of Hawaii-Manoa, and the William S. Richardson School of Law. Upon earning a Juris Doctor of Law, I worked as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney on the Islands of Oahu, Maui, and Kaua'i, handling all types of criminal trials, from DUI/OVUII to Murder in the First Degree. I have also worked as a deputy public defender on the Island of Kaua'i. I am now available to assist private clients in their time of need.
