KRISTIN COCCARO ESQ.
Attorney & Founder of Empire Law, LLLC.
Kristin Coccaro is a former New York Assistant District Attorney, United States Air Force Judge Advocate General (JAG), Maui County Prosecutor, and Special Assistant United States Attorney with over 22 years of experience practicing law. She has worked in New York and Hawaii State courts, Hawaii Federal Court, and Military Courts. As a senior prosecutor, Kristin has investigated and tried every type of felony criminal case and has extensive experience handling major drug offenses, sexual assaults, sexual harassment, domestic violence, property crimes, and all levels of violent crimes, including homicides.
Her experience also covers personal injury (car accidents, slip & fall, medical malpractice etc.). There are many challenges one faces after enduring the pain (emotionally and physically) of going through an accident. The decisions you make after being injured can have a lasting impact on your family, your health, and your finances so it is important to have sound legal counsel. You want a seasoned trial attorney who is skilled in negotiation but also passionate and aggressive in court to make sure you are treated fairly, you receive the compensation you deserve, and your best interests are being served.
Kristin has lived in Hawaii for over 20 years. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Amherst College and her Juris Doctorate from Brooklyn Law School. Kristin is licensed to practice law in both New York State and Hawaii.

“I got rear ended and Kristin helped me as I didn’t know what to do with a hit and run. I had a serious whiplash injury. I am so grateful for your passion, dedication, and professionalism. I’ve hired an accident lawyer on Maui before but you are truly the best personal injury lawyer in Hawaii. I didn’t realize we had an expert accident lawyer near me. Thank you so much! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the amazing legal work you did for me and my family.”
“Kristin came into my life when I was on pretty shaky ground. Her support, professionalism, dedication, and generous heart allowed me to get my life back. I could trust her and knew that I had a real partner in a very uncertain time. I felt like I had a sister fighting for me and nothing got past her. To say I recommend her feels like an understatement. I am eternally grateful to have been represented by Kristin and for the outcome of my case.”
‘I had never been in any situation where I needed a lawyer until this past August. Recommended by an Oahu attorney and a personal friend here on Maui, I reached out to Empire Law. Kristin had me at ease with the first phone call! She had my case sorted out immediately and explained everything in terms I could understand. Not only was she able to successfully defend me from an unjust accusation, her empathetic ways towards me and my family offered unexpected emotional support. In a Courtroom setting, her knowledge, fierce presence, and professionalism made me feel confident and at ease. My family and I are eternally grateful to Kristin and we would highly recommend her and Empire Law.”
