    First and Only Lawyer I Will Go To!

    My first encounter ever with the law happened only a few months after I moved to Hawaii. I sought out Mr. Bakke's help and was completely satisfied! He physically went down to the scene, took video evidence, and presented it in court. My case was DISMISSED after the judge watched the video taken by Mr. Bakke. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney that cares, and dedicates his time to you and your case!

    Fantastic Lawyer

    I retained Mr. Bakke for legal counsel and luckily, have never had to go to court for a civil or criminal trial. The magic behind the scenes doesn't always make headlines, but elite level attorneys such as Mr. Bakke are able to coordinates matters in such a way, that don't be surprised if you're able to beat a case long before a formal charge or indictment. Secondly, its always nice to have an attorney retained with experience in: military law civil law (won the largest settlement against HPD ever for a discrimination case) criminal felony law (won the largest criminal indictment in Hawaii history - sweepstakes gamblers case) misdemeanor / traffic law (DUI, driving without license, Abuse of family member DV, TRO violations) - I've referred several friend to him, each with great results landlord tenant disputes I've asked him wide ranging questions about the law, and he's always had the answer, or returned my call with great advise after speaking to a specialist. For example, I had a friend get evicted without any notice and given 48 hours to leave. I called Mr. Bakke and he guided me through the process to make sure my friend was not taken advantage of - fyi, its illegal to force a 48 hour eviction w/o notice. He even called up another super attorney that specialized in real estate law to double check a few key facts, then got right back to me with a list of options to help me fight back against the landlord. He made it easy and said, "what they're doing is illegal, so drop my name and have them call attorney Victor Bakke if they wish to speak with you again." Things worked out well once they realized we couldn't be pushed around. Just as a life lesson, I think its important to have two top-notch professionals in your life. One, a good Doctor, because your health is everything; and second, a good attorney, since freedom is the most precious thing after health. I feel like I got a steal by just paying a flat rate retainer and having Mr. Bakke available for my pending legal issues. If any of my matters went to trial, he could have charged me tens of thousand of dollars! Paying a flat rate retainer, then beating a case pre-trial worked well for me. My advise to those that made it this far is to never cheap out on legal counsel and retain a good attorney long before you're ever in need of one.

    Always comes through

    10 years ago I hired him for a few BS charges without his help and his knowledge on how the law works I would be in jail for something I didn't do. He had every charge drop and dismissed and my record expunge. He has always come through for me

    Top Notch Lawyer

    Victor Bakke is a top notch lawyer! I've hired him for small times cases and also referred my military friends to him for court marshal matters. He specializes in sex assault cases, but also has been very successful in civil law. He won the largest settlement ever against HPD and was the attorney of the successful dismissal of the largest criminal indictment ever too (sweepstakes gambling machine case.) He was great with me and all my friends I've referred.

    Very Professional

    Victor Bakke handled my case professionally and very easily. He made the whole nightmare bearable. In the court room he was always on top of his game. Outside the courtroom he was always available to answer questions or just calm me down. I would refer anyone to use Mr. Bakke services.

    I will absolutely recommend Victor to any and everyone seeking legal advice!

    I called Victor to receive a 2nd opinion on a lingering case from 1 1/2 yrs ago. Upon initial conversation, Victor took his time to thoroughly grasp a firm understanding of our case. He was very polite, and most of all, incredibly knowledgeable in the law. He called me back after reviewing actual court proceedings within 10 minutes, and gave very sound advice, and genuinely showed vested interest in our well-being. The initial phone call turned into 1 1/2 hours of conversation going back and forth playing out multiple scenarios and me asking him a ton of questions. He answered all of my questions confidently and thoroughly. I will absolutely recommend Victor to any and everyone seeking legal advice!

    Victor (y) Delivered!

    We all make mistakes, and mine was a big one! He reviewed my case and walked with me through options I have. I was facing a Class B Felony- with a possible 5 year prison time. This is the first time I've been in trouble with the law, other than a couple traffic infractions. I truly was scared- He helped calm me down and through the whole process, I felt somewhat at ease. Given the circumstances. Instead of jail- and going through the process of a trial, I was eligible for a deferral of sentence. Meaning- I stay out of jail! Of course, I have some probation and community service I have to take, but all in all... that is definitely the lesser of the evils. Because of Victor, I have a chance to continue on with my normal daily life. I am a devoted family man, who made a grave mistake. Lesson learned and jail avoided.

After listening to me Mr. Bakke explained the procedures of what the case might look like, Mr. Bakke was very professional at all times from the beginning of the case until the very end. I am so blessed to have found a lawyer that could help us and that we could trust.

    Thank you for your excellent advice throughout the entire court hearings. It was indeed a pleasure to work with someone that was so knowledgeable.

    Wonderful lawyer, wonderful man. I was told to hire him through a mutual friend we have and I am glad that I did. He is cordial, funny,compassionate and a driven lawyer/person. What I like most is that he charges a flat fee, and will always answer your questions whatever or whenever it is. I would definitely refer him to anyone in need of a defense lawyer. My world has changed since we met and I owe it all to him. Thank you for being my lawyer, thank you for being my friend.

    Excellent Lawyer. He is truly the best.

    There's a legal issues with my son, which I felt was wrong. I looked for lawyers and Attorney Bakke showed on top for a reason. Attorney Victor Bakke is truly an outstanding lawyer. He took my son's case, explained the whole process, an honest man who really cares for people, especially his clients. I feel very at ease and comfortable and knew right away, we made the best decision getting him, and that we are in good hands. Sure enough, case is dismissed, what a true relief. His staff are also very accommodating, and attorney Bakke always answers our phone calls when we have questions. We feel that we have a family with him. Hope he can help your family as much as he has helped mine. I recommend Attorney Bakke to all my family and friends. World class lawyer with a team of great people. A true great service with positive outcome. Thank you very much Attorney Bakke!

    Case closed.

    I didn't mean to get in trouble. It just kinda happened, really. I mean, I really was just minding my business when next thing you know it, I'm getting arrested and sitting at HPD Beretania thinking, what's gonna happen next? Fast forward, my brother bails me out and I'm out of jail wondering what the hell is an arraignment. Seriously, I'm not the type of person that would get arrested and charged and whatever else is that mambo jambo. Fortunately, I'm friends with people who know criminal defense lawyers. Don't ask me how they know them, they just know them. I am not a criminal!! Ok, so I tell my friends give me the hook ups. I need a lawyer because I don't know what to do in court. So a couple of friends mention Victor Bakke. Apparently he's good, or one of the best or so I'm told. I googled him for confirmation. I gave him a call and I told him that I was at the wrong place at the wrong time and can he get me out of this weird and twisted mess? I mean seriously, I was wrongly accused! We talked for a bit and then it got to the whole cost of the matter. What I like about him is that he doesn't charge hourly rates, he just does a flat fee. Which for me is a relief since I'm not exactly sitting on trust funds to save my butt. Anyway, he must have believed my story because he took my case. I had court dates to go to, but he took care of them for me. And when we finally went to trial and I had to go to court, I got not guilty! That's right! Not guilty! I told you I wasn't doing anything bad! It just happened! But seriously, it was a huge relief to be not guilty and I owe it to Victor Bakke, because he believed me and he personally took care of my case and got me off free. He's very professional and while at times I felt like it was a losing battle, Victor Bakke reassured me that he can get the work done. Case closed. *Note: Like I'm really gonna tell you what I got arrested for. *Secondary Note: If I ever do get arrested again, I would definietly call up Victor Bakke. Not saying that I would get arrested, but if I ever do.

    Victor is a lifesaver!

    There was a time when I was going down the wrong path in life. Long story short, I was facing up to 40 years in prison, and didn't know what to do. Victor got me the help that I needed. He got me a second. The wonderful life that I have today would not have been possible without this man. Thank you Victor!

    EXCELLENT RESULTS, BOTH TIMES!

    Yes, Victor helped me TWICE. The first time I called Victor for help was back in 2013 when he helped me get my teenage daughter out of trouble. Not only did he do that, but his strong presence balanced with his natural charm helped prevent my kid from being railroaded by the other party, whose parents were both law enforcement. So naturally the cards were stacked against us, but thanks to Victor we came out on top AND without any enemies! Today he successfully garnered a 3-year-long restraining order against an obnoxious neighbor I've been dealing with for over 11 years. Victor wasn't my first choice because I thought he only defended criminals, but after a couple of other attorneys couldn't help me, I figured who better to help me get and keep a TRO on said obnoxious neighbor, who happens to also be a felon, than a lawyer who successfully helped people like THAT for years? Victor did a good amount of researching what he could to help with this case, and in such a short period of time. Today I met him in court without an ounce of nervousness and again he came through with flying colors. My peace of mind was at stake with this issue, and he made sure I'd be able to go home to a long-lasting, peaceful environment. I've hired attorneys for other issues like an EEO and small claims, but one rare quality Victor exhibited that I really appreciated was his patience and willingness to listen and answer every question I had, even when I asked him the same thing more than once. This was very helpful because my need for legal representation was never for anything good, which brought on a lot of anxiety, and with it the inability to think straight. Having someone I could trust to speak on my behalf when all I felt like doing was crumbling into a heap was the greatest relief. Needless to say I'll be calling Victor again should I ever need legal help. Well, hopefully I won't need it.

    Thank you Victor Bakke for taking my case and I cannot thank you enough for all that you did.

    t seems like only yesterday when I recall receiving a phone call accusing me of a crime that I did not commit. I recall that I spent the next seven hours on my computer looking for an attorney to represent me. I narrowed my choice to three attorneys and I thank God for selecting Attorney Victor Bakke. I called his office early the next morning and was able to get an appointment to meet with him the following day. My wife and I met with him and after talking with him I immediately felt that I had made the right choice. He seemed very concerned with my case and assured me that he had represented many clients in similar situations. During the following months he met with me and made several recommendations which I followed. During this time he gave me hope and always told me to have faith in his ability. It was very settling to speak to him. I recall seeing him on television on many occasions, giving his expert opinion on very high level cases and feeling that he is such a knowledgeable attorney and the TV stations also respected his opinions. Thank you Victor Bakke for taking my case and I cannot thank you enough for all that you did.

    I just used Victor Bakke's service. Was charged a flat fee but it was reduced significantly after his firm settled the matter without going to court. If I have any other legal troubles I will be using his services again.

    Like a Family. Best Lawyer in town

    There was a legal issue that I felt was unfair for a family member. Attorny Bakke handled this case like he was this boy's uncle. Made him aware of his action and understood the boys predicament. Teaching him and mentoring him. Strong and passionate. He is class A attorney in court. He has intellectual and has fierce demeanor in court. His presence is noticed. I personally have been done wrong by Attorneys in the past. Still have not written them a bad review because I believe Khama will handle them. It's such s relief to put your faith in someone and they live up to that. This is the truth. But I hesitate to say more because Yelp has a tendency to only keep the negative replies. But this is from my heart! Hope he can help you as he did my family!
