Law firm’s gift aims to spark others

HONOLULU – Attorneys Raymond J. Tam and Mark Davis hope that the $85,000 they have contributed to the Dawn Marie Julian Clinic from legal fees stemming from an accident case will be an example to their colleagues.
The outpatient rehabilitation clinic in Hawaii Kai will be an extension of services of the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific.
Of the contribution, $50,500 will be used to refurbish the Hawaii Kai Medical and Office Building at 333 Keahole St. The remainder of the money is to be used “for paint or any way it’s needed,” Tam said.
The attorneys took the donation from their fees in a $3,255 million out-of-court settlement. Tam respresented Richard Julian, who was left paralyzed on one side of his body. Davis respresented the parents of Julian’s sister, Dawn, who was killed in an August 1985 hit-and-run accident on Kalanianaole Highway.
“Our efforts were all for Julian, but we didn’t want Dawn to be forgotten,” Tam said. “It is to be formally dedicated July 30, Dawn’s birthday.
