Hi, this is Rie. I am a Japanese lawyer working in Tokyo. I am also admitted to practice at the NY bar.
My main areas of practice are criminal defense, labor and employment, and dispute resolution. I provide Japanese legal service in both Japanese and English, regarding the above areas of practice.
As my pro bono work, I am interested in working for the reformation of the criminal justice system, which is often criticized for its unfairness and disregard for the rights of defendants. As a result, I am currently working on the case of a convict on death row who has been wrongfully convicted based on junk science.
In this blog, I would like to write about my work and thoughts regarding mainly criminal defense and labor and employment issues.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding my areas of service, please feel free to contact me anytime.
