On February 8, HUGS Moms enjoyed an evening out together at the Old Spaghetti Factory at Aloha Tower.  A delicious dinner and dessert goes really well with laughter and good conversation.  Several new Moms joined and experienced the support and fellowship of HUGS Moms.  These are the times that Moms can take comfort, feel relaxed, and appreciate their fellow parents who are travelers on a similar journey.  A dinner on the surface, appears to be such a simple thing, but for these Moms, it provides a respite from their daily routine and is truly a cherished time.  Mom’s night is a great opportunity to share experience and resources, and to grow friendships with other moms who may be going through a similar journey.

After practicing law for more than 30 years, I have decided to retire and move on to the next chapter of my life, effective December 31, 2023.  My law career and time at PMK has been incredibly rewarding.  I am fortunate to have worked with PMK’s talented attorneys and staff and am confident my clients will be in capable hands. Mahalo for allowing me the opportunity to work alongside all of you for these many years. 

With warm aloha,

PMK Senior Associate Seth Harris is passionate about family law 

Family law attorneys often meet people during very emotional events in their lives, such as divorces or custody disputes. Such situations require steady, compassionate guidance. The opportunity to help clients through these difficult times is exactly what attracted Seth Harris to family law.  

“You don’t have to just struggle through this experience and be lost,” said Seth, who joined PMK in 2017. “I feel strongly about helping my clients get through what can be a tough process. That’s a big part of what motivates me and why I continue to do this.”   

Seth received his Bachelor of Science degree from Georgetown University and his law degree from the William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawaii, Manoa. He has 20 years of experience practicing law, 14 of which are in family law, and built PMK’s family law practice from the ground up.  

In his free time, Seth enjoys Kendo (Japanese Fencing) and has earned a 6th degree black belt. He is married with two children, ages one and seven.
