The State of Hawaii is divided into 4 counties, which each have their own trial courts. The Hawaii State Circuit Courts serve as the trail courts for felony criminal cases and civil cases involving $20,000 or more in damages. The Hawaii Intermediate Court of Appeals reviews decisions made by the lower courts. Any further appellate review is handled by the Hawaii Supreme Court.

The three most populated municipalities in Hawaii are Honolulu, Pearl City, and Hilo.
