Mr William S HuntDentonsHealthcare Practice Group
William S. Hunt is a partner in Dentons’ Honolulu office. Bill is one of Hawai`i’s go-to attorneys for the defense of multi-million dollar catastrophic injury claims. Bill primarily represents physicians and hospitals in complex and high-dollar disputes concerning alleged medical negligence and other health care matters. He also has represented commercial companies, such as Chevron U.S.A., in general litigation and business matters.
Bill’s daily practice is 100 percent focused on litigation and dispute resolution. He strives for a quickest resolution to a problem but if necessary assiduously prepares for trial. He has participated as counsel in more than 50 jury/judge trials or binding arbitrations and has a proven track record of success, most recently convincing a jury to award on US$48,000 to a plaintiff whose well-known trial attorney had requested US$60 million.
Bill received his JD from Columbia Law School, working as a law clerk for the Center on Social Welfare Policy and Law to pay his way. Soon after graduating, he moved to Hawai`i and started his practice with a firm representing defendants in criminal cases. He is a licensed to practice in the US Supreme Court, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and US District Court, as well as all Hawai`i state courts. He is a member of the ABA and DRI and a board member and president of the Hawai`i Justice Foundation. He stays active in his spare time paddling in six-person Hawaiian canoes and playing softball.
