News Release from Office of the Governor Dec 17, 2013

HONOLULU — Gov. Neil Abercrombie today announced the appointment of Patricia Kim Park to the Judicial Selection Commission, filling the vacancy left by Jeffrey Portnoy who stepped down following his appointment to the University of Hawaii Board of Regents. Effective immediately, Park’s term expires April 1, 2017.

“Patricia has a deep understanding and respect for the State Constitution as well as a strong track record of protecting the rights and interests of the people of Hawaii,” Gov. Abercrombie said. “I have full confidence in her ability, judgment and character as she embarks on fulfilling this vital role of selecting qualified nominees for judicial vacancies.”

A graduate of Kahuku High School, the University of Hawaii and the University of Michigan Law School, Park began her career as a law clerk to Hawaii Supreme Court Justice Jack Mizuha. She also served as a Deputy Attorney General, Deputy Prosecuting Attorney, and per diem judge at the Honolulu District Court. In the mid-1970s, she and her husband, Arthur, joined former Lt. Gov. Thomas P. Gill to form the firm of Gill Park and Park. She is currently the managing partner of Park and Park, serves also as a mediator and arbitrator, and has been named among Honolulu Magazine’s Best Lawyers in Hawaii every year since 2006.

Park was born and currently resides in Honolulu.
