Oshiro spent the past three years as deputy chief of staff to Gov. Neil Abercrombie.
He is also a former majority leader for the state House of Representatives, where he represented Aiea for more than 10 years.
“I look forward to using my experience and networks in the state government, coupled with my knowledge of the law, to help clients develop strategies that work consistent with state policies so that in collaboration with policy decision-makers, we move forward as a community,” Oshiro said in a press release Tuesday.
Bill Kaneko, an Alston Hunt attorney who managed Abercrombie’s unsuccessful re-election campaign this year, said, “Over the years, Blake’s reputation and people skills have enabled him to collaborate across political and party lines to achieve positive results and action. We look forward to the work we can accomplish with him as part of the team.”
