Our Oahu-based attorneys:
Rick Abelmann is a bankruptcy attorney admitted to practice in Hawaii and New York. Rick previously practiced corporate and securities law in Hong Kong with Clifford Chance, one of the largest law firms in the world, and also spent time working on the trading floor for the equities division of the Wall Street investment bank Morgan Stanley. Rick has since worked with hundreds of families throughout the State of Hawai’i to help solve debt problems and relieve the stress and anxiety associated with financial distress.
In 2007, fresh out of law school, Chris Rollins and his family of four packed their bags, cleaned out the savings account and ventured out for Hong Kong to pursue a career in the investment banking industry. Within weeks, Chris had started a career at Goldman Sachs where he worked for two years. He then transferred to the international equities division at Morgan Stanley where he was ultimately promoted to the rank of vice president. During this successful time in Hong Kong, Chris realized that negotiating derivatives contracts was not his life’s calling and thus he continued to search for a more fulfilling role that would allow him to help others to reach their goals.
