As of February 1, 2019, Ms. Ferrer, former partner at Nakamoto & Ferrer, has opened her own practice in Family Law – Law Office Of Shelby N. Ferrer. As a Family Law attorney, Ms. 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. After concluding her clerkship in 2016, Ms. Ferrer became an associate attorney for the Law Office Of Mei Nakamoto. In May 2018, the Law Office Of Mei Nakamoto transitioned to Nakamoto & Ferrer, with Ms. Ferrer being a named partner.

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.
