LIHUE — Mauna Kea Trask, who served as county attorney from December 2014 to November 2018, has joined a new firm on Kauai.

Trask is now a practicing attorney with Cades Schutte LLP’s Kauai office.

Trask said he’s looking forward to the next stage of his career.

“So far, my legal career has been in government serving the people as a public defender, prosecuting attorney and county attorney. Starting the next stage of my career at Cades Schutte LLP is an honor,” Trask said.

During his tenure Trask represented the county in a variety of matters. He is a graduate of Kamehameha Schools, Oregon State University and the William S. Richardson School of Law.

Born on Oahu and raised on Kauai, Trask is a fourth-generation lawyer with deep roots throughout the state.

Trask joins resident partner Allison Mizuo Lee in the Kauai office.

Lee was also born and raised on Kauai, and is a graduate of Kauai High School, Claremont McKenna College and the William S. Richardson School of Law.

    Aloha Kakou, Congratulations Maunakea Trask…!

    …and mahalo for your service in the government sector, especially in the more visible time as County Attorney.

    It was surprising to read that you are a 4th generation attorney. Many of us know your Dad, and your Grandfather, but the surprise is your Great Grandfather was also an attorney.

    We wished the aerticle would have named and mentioned a little about the 3 attorney generations above you.

    All the best in your coming new era as a private practicing attorney, it’s nice to know Cade’s, Schutte, LLP has an intelligent, well spoken and experienced attorney in their office in Kaua’i.

    This guy is a trick and his daddy was a disgraced trick. He had to be coached by a corrupt judge and that judge committed a crime by violating constitutional rights under the bill of rights.

    Kauai’s courts is a mockery of the judicial system and shows how corrupt a little island can become.
