Stebbins, Martin named to top Corporation Counsel posts


Mayor Billy Kenoi has named Molly Amai Stebbins as the new corporation counsel, the county’s top civil lawyer.

The appointment is effective May 20, and is subject to confirmation by the County Council.

Stebbins has served as deputy corporation counsel since 2007, and is currently assigned to represent the county police and fire departments.

She is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and the University of Hawaii’s William S. Richardson School of Law.

“Molly is a highly skilled attorney who has the talent and experience to lead the Office of the Corporation Counsel,” Kenoi said. “We are proud to have her leading our legal team, and she will do an outstanding job serving our community.”

Kenoi also announced the appointment of Laureen Martin as assistant corporation counsel.

Martin has served as the county’s deputy corporation counsel since 2009, and is currently litigation section supervisor for the office. Martin also worked as Maui County deputy corporation counsel from 2002 to 2009.

Stebbins replaces Lincoln Ashida, who resigned as corporation counsel April 30 to take a position as senior counsel for Torkildson Katz Moore Hetherington & Harris.

Martin replaces Katherine Garson as assistant corporation counsel. Garson will remain with the county as deputy corporation counsel.
