J Stephen Street Rainbow Falls
Attorney at Law

Mr. Street has been very involved in community service activities for many years.  He has served on the International Board of Directors for Special Olympics, Inc., where he chaired the International Advisory Committee.  He also served on the North American Leadership Council and the United States Leadership Council for Special Olympics, and is a past Chairman of the Special Olympics Hawaii Board of Directors. He served on the Board of Special Olympics Hawaii for 20 years, and coached Special Olympics Hawaii swimming and soccer teams for over 18 years.

Other community service has included memberships on the Board of Directors for the Protection and Advocacy Agency of Hawaii (President - 3 years), Make-a-Wish Foundation of Hawaii, the Hawaii Loa Ridge Homeowners' Association (President - 2 years), and the Hawaii Disabilities Rights Center, as well as serving on the Hawaii State Department of Health, Developmental Disabilities Division, Advisory Committee. 

Mr. Street has a special appreciation for artists.  In 2022 he marked 65 years of painting in oils in his spare time.  More than 40 of those years have been inspired by living and working in the beauty of Hawai'i with the diverse and wonderful people who call Hawai'i home.  His original oil paintings have been selected for juried art competions in Hawai'i, a four artist show at a gallery in Washington D.C. and in more than 15 private collections.  His artwork can be found at

Maintaining his day job as an attorney is made more satisfying because he has had the opportunity to  represent some of the finest professional photographers in Hawai'i, as well as other artists, in copyright matters for more than 40 years of his 48 years of practicing law.  In the first 12 years since he started his solo practice, Mr. Street has obtained settlements in copyright infringement matters benefitting more than 100 individual photographers and other artists.
