(Hilo, Hawaii – August 16, 2011)-To better serve its Hawaii Island clients, Hastings & Pleadwell has taken downtown Hilo office space and has hired Ashley L. Kierkiewicz for communication and public outreach coordination.
The office is at 614 Kilauea Avenue, Suite 103, in Hilo.
“With Ashley joining the H&P team,” said Barbara A. Hastings, “we intend to build our Big Island profile and wanted to be closer to government and business centers.”
