News Release from Hawaii Senate Democratic Caucus, March 29, 2018

HONOLULU, Hawai‘i – The Hawai‘i State Senate today voted unanimously to advise and consent on Russell Suzuki as the Attorney General for the State of Hawai‘i.

Suzuki has been serving as the acting chief legal and law enforcement officer for the state since February 2 when Attorney General Doug Chin resigned to become Lieutenant Governor.  For the last 36 years, Suzuki has been working at the Department of the Attorney General as a public-sector attorney. He served as First Deputy Attorney General under Attorneys General Doug Chin, David Louie, and Mark Bennett. Prior to that, he was a Supervising Deputy Attorney General of the Administration Division and Education Division. Before his employment at the Department of Attorney General, he practiced criminal defense law, family law, business law, and military law at the law offices of Yoshiro Nakamura.

Suzuki has a B.A. from the University of Hawai‘i and earned his J.D. from Ohio State University.

“Russell Suzuki comes to us with strong support from those who testified on his nomination observing that his seasoned judgement, extensive knowledge and professional demeanor will continue to be an asset to the Department of the Attorney General,” said Senator Brian Taniguchi, chair of the Senate Committee on Judiciary.
