His demise was sensational. His redemption has been quiet and measured.

It took Gary Modafferi 13 years to be reinstated to the Hawaii bar. He had to prove himself again and again, answering questions about what he does in his free time, what he learned in treatment and what his family support system is like. After hearings, testimony and a report from an investigative committee, on Nov. 29  Modafferi reclaimed a part of what he had lost.
