A Family Law Center
Focusing On The Needs Of
Hawaii’s Children

The Children’s law Center, LLLC, a law firm incorporated by attorneys and child advocates Annabel Murray and Stacy Fukuhara-Barclay, focuses on the legal, financial and best interests needs of Hawaii’s children. The CLC works exclusively on cases that involve children, including divorce, custody, paternity, child support, abuse, guardianship, adoption, and conservatorship.

Stacy was exactly what we needed during our divorce. She put the needs of our child first, and was very even-handed in dealing with our situation. She was available whenever we had pressing issues, and now, a year out from our decree, she remains an invaluable resource.

It was my first time seeking out legal help, and I felt overwhelmed and intimidated by other attorneys I spoke with over the phone. Annabel and everyone in the office made me feel welcome and comfortable during a very difficult time.

Annabel Murray, has been such an amazing lawyer. It was my first time seeking out an lawyer and I really had no clue what to do or what to expect. Annabel and her staff, completely made me feel at ease with my custody case.

About Us

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.
