Lockey E. White

Attorney at Law
(808) 796-5280

Current Employment Position

  • Attorney


Attorney Lockey White began her legal career in 1994 as an Apprentice Mediator while pursuing a Bachelors of Science.  Since that time she has served in all aspects of the legal profession for all types of law firms, public, private, and nonprofit organizations.  She has also been a technology entrepreneur and is currently also an abstract artist with an art gallery in her law firm lobby located near the Hilo Farmers' Market on the Big Island of Hawaii.  

Lockey's broad range of life experience --including extensive international travel and living abroad in her youth-- allows her to bring something to her legal advice that few lawyers manage: a 10,000-foot view.  Lockey can likely understand almost all aspects of your legal issue, and advise you as to the best direction to solve your problem in less time than it takes for most firms to onboard you as a client.  Sometimes the best advice goes beyond typical legal advice.  Attorneys are, ultimately, counselors after all.  If you are having legal problems, there is a reason.  Lockey's goal is empower you to solve your legal issues, heal your conflict, save your home, manage or discharge your debts, protect your assets, and plan your estate to proactively prevent legal issues in the future.
