Mr. Mukaida is a very knowledgeable attorney. He is highly proficient in getting results from insurance companies when they have made mistakes on Work Comp weekly payment amounts. He ensures that clients are reimbursed for the discrepancies within a timely manner. Occasionally it can take a few days to reach him due to his work load, but he is known to always call back. His fees are very reasonable and he is highly supportive of his clients.

He made me do all the work and never returned calls he failed to keep appointments or promises. I turned him in to the department of labor nothing was ever done except sending him letter to follow up with me, didn't help. My case settled and he sat on the settlement for over 2 1/2 years. Avoided all my calls and gave no explanation except sorry. He ripped me off with his fees and services.

I found him to be very diligent and thorough in the handling of his workers compensation cases. He is willing to "go to the mat" for his clients.

Wayne is one of the leaders of the Workers' Compensation claimants' lawyers here in Hawaii. He is often kind to share with other attorneys from his extensive knowledge of WC law and his familiarity of the trends and likely outcomes of various WC issues. He recently won a hotly contested appeal to the Hawaii Supreme Court in the Van Ness case. He is one of the best WC attorneys in the state.
