Shelby N. Ferrer has a unique depth of knowledge about Hawai’i’s Family Court. After graduating in 2014 from the William S. Richardson School of Law, Ms. Ferrer served as a law clerk to the Honorable R. Mark Browning, Senior Judge of Family Court and Deputy Chief Judge of the First Circuit. As Senior Judge Browning’s law clerk, Ms. Ferrer assisted in the administration of over 500 employees and the numerous programs and court proceedings of the Family Court, including juvenile probation programs, a youth detention facility, and proceedings involving juveniles charged with crimes, unsupervised minors, adoptions, guardianships of minors and disabled adults, abused and neglected children, domestic abuse, divorcing families with alimony, property division and child custody issues, and never-married families with child custody disputes.
During law school, Ms. Ferrer was a pro bono volunteer with the Family Court’s Ho‘olokahi program, which assists parents who have children subjected to abuse or neglect. She also helped establish Law for Youth Empowerment (also known as LYtE), a law student organization designed to educate and advocate for incarcerated and at-risk youth in Hawai’i. In addition, Ms. Ferrer also served as an extern with the family law division of the Legal Aid Society of Hawai‘i, where she assisted LASH attorneys and staff with indigent adults who needed assistance with divorce, child custody and domestic abuse protection needs.
A 2006 graduate of Punahou School and 2010 graduate of the University of Hawai’i at Manoa, Ms. Ferrer was admitted to the Hawai‘i State Bar Association in November 2014. She is licensed to practice in all courts in the State of Hawai‘i.
As a result of her experience, Ms. Ferrer understands the stresses that the court system can have on the families in Hawai’i who are involved in it, especially its impact on children. Whether she’s embedded in the court system or employed in the private sector, Ms. Ferrer continues to dedicate herself to helping children and adults navigate through one of life’s most difficult events and begin a new chapter in peace and safety.
