The goal of The Institute for Best Interest Advocacy (BILA) is to provide Hawaii attorneys and mental health professionals with access to local, national and international experts in legal advocacy and mental health interventions. Attorneys will have the latest information on cutting edge, best interests centered legal advocacy to insure attorneys have the training and information that will allow them to provide meaningful, persuasive and relevant information, rather than resorting to personal attacks and high conflict litigation strategies.
The founding attorneys, Annabel Murray and Stacy Fukuhara-Barclay are child advocates who strive to create opportunities . Sadly, we witnessed the devastating and long-lasting effects family litigation had on children. We knew that most of these parents had good intentions and given the choice, many would have chosen child-centered alternatives, which not only yielded better outcomes for children, but were much more cost-effective and faster than traditional litigation. In 2005, we opened CLC to work with these such families.
