Mrs. Holloway assisted me with a very difficult custody situation that seemed insurmountable until we joined forces. She was very well prepared. She demanded that I be prepared and complete in preparation for trial. She was firm, professional and efficient and was amazingly compassionate as I navigated very emotional territory in the fight to secure a future with my young daughter. She is a consummate professional and a wonderful, wonderful person. I would recommend her to any and all!
Ms. Holloway repeatedly dropped the ball with my uncontested divorce. I got stuck with a bad divorce agreement as a result and now I must file a lawsuit to enforce it rather than have my former spouse held in contempt of court. She failed to recognize certain very important details regarding my former spouse's financial situation and was almost a complete failure in getting the divorce completed. She also referred me to another attorney she works with who, more or less, ripped me off. Now I must admit she did recognize her poor performance and volunteered to work beyond the original scope of our agreement for the same original price, however this was mainly due to her misunderstanding and mishandling of my case. I'm still paying the price for it to this very day.
My experience with Ms. Holloway on the overall was very positive. She was very knowledgeable in the field of divorce law. Ms. Holloway was very precise and efficient in getting marital assets frozen in my case. I met with another lawyer who told me it was impossible to freeze marital assets but Ms. Holloway got it done.
Chandra Walker Holloway is a capable, honest and competent attorney. She is also a compassionate human being. As a client, I feel like she was more than someone with whom I entered into "a contract." A couple of occasions stand out in my mind in the three years that we worked together as attorney/client. The first is that she insisted that I think about my decision. She did not try to force herself on me as an attorney. She wasn't "money hungry." The second is that she told me after I made my decision that if I changed my mind at any time I had that right and it would be okay - no judgement, no shame - that I had to do what was right for me and my family. The third is that she continued to represent me in a fiscal responsible way over a three year period. Ms.Walker Holloway provided detailed information as to what documents I would need to present. She would remind me of the many court dates that we had via telephone and email. She listened to what I wanted and then advised me on the best strategies for optimum outcome. She kept me "balanced." When one seeks an attorney, many times it is because one is facing a difficult situation. Ms. Walker Holloway helped me through my legal battle, but she also brought a level of caring and understanding, which I did not find in the three previous lawyers that I had interviewed prior to hiring Ms. Walker Holloway. She gets five stars from me.
Chandra Walker Holloway was the second Lawyer that I hired to handle my Family Court Case (Child Support, Alimony, and Visitation Schedule). I hired her because the final ruling of my initial court case ,with another lawyer, wasn't a favorable outcome. There were too many loose ends in the initial ruling that needed to be fixed in order to have a more concise order through the court system. As I was searching for lawyers, I called a good friend of mine to obtain any recommendations. She gave me contact information for three different attorneys but when she told me about Chandra Walker Holloway she said, "she is an aggressive lawyer (pitbull) who is not afraid of a difficult challenge who knows her stuff"! At that moment, I knew she was the lawyer for me. From the first time that I spoke with her, during my consultation, she was professional, organized, straight forward, and offered both great advice and insight for my case. She impressed me so much during the consultation, I didn't hesitate to hire her for my case and since hiring her I have not been disappointed. I began working with Mrs. Holloway in December of 2011 until November 2012. In getting to know her as a lawyer she kept me well informed of what was going on with my case, she ensured that I was prepared to testify in court, she provided me with good sound advice, she listened to my concerns/opinions, and was very organized and prepared. I was more confident this time around returning to court because I had an attorney who I believed in and in turn she believed in me. I wish that Chandra Holloway was my initial lawyer for my case then maybe I would've had to return to court. But since becoming my lawyer, she fixed and pursued my alimony payments, she reworked my child support, she offered three great arguments for the court to consider in having my ex-husband sign a quit claim deed for my property, and she fought hard to get a suitable visitation schedule for my daughter. If your in need of an excellent attorney, I highly recommend Mrs. Holloway to represent you. Not only is she a 5 star attorney, she is also a great person!
Ms. Holloway was not responsive. I had to call repeatedly before getting a follow-up. Finally, i had to retain a new attorney after she never returned my last two messgaes.
