Michael Tsai’s February 19, 2013 Incidental Lives column in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, profiled Larie and her unique educational and cultural background. The article noted Larie’s upbringing in Laie’s close-knit community, and her eventual bachelor’s degree obtained there at Brigham Young University-Hawaii. Larie furthered her education at the William S. Richardson School of Law, at the
University of Hawaii-Manoa where she received her Juris Doctorate.
After graduation, Larie worked as an attorney with Volunteer Legal Services Hawaii, before working with the Polynesian Cultural Center in sales and marketing where she currently is based out of their Waikiki office. Between her sales job and being a mother (to Pati) and wife (to Abe), she manages to find time to practice law at Doi/Luke, performing legal research and writing, and handling cases.
Everyone who comes in contact with Larie knowsthat she always brings her boundless energy and a smile to every challenge. We at Doi/Luke, Island Lawyers are proud to work with a positive force in the community like Larie.
