The Hawaii State Supreme Court has suspended Hilo-based attorney Carrie Yonemori for three years. The court said the suspension resulted from her failure to provide competent and diligent representation to three clients, her failure to communicate with these clients, and her failure to cooperate in the investigation of these clients’ complaints. The court, in a written statement, cautioned that Yonemori is ineligible to practice law in Hawaii until reinstated by court order.
Yomemori was born and raised in Hilo, and attended Waiakeawaena Elementary, Waiakea Intermediate, and Waiakea High School. She graduated from UH Hilo and got her law degree at North Dakota School of Law. Yonemori was admitted to the State Bar in 1998. Her office is at 101 Aupuni Street in Hilo.
