    • I recommend Holly Veal.

    Holly Veal is an attorney you want to hire as your criminal defense lawyer, she knows the system like the back of her hands and how to navigate it. I retained Ms Veal for a shoplifting charge against me in august of this year. When the incident happened, I thought my world has come to an end. On my first encounter with her, she explained what my chances are, what I needed to do and the best possible outcome. With that, I was a bit relieved. When I went to court she presented my case in such a classical manner that before I knew what was happening, the case was dismissed. SHE IS THE BEST.

    I was arrested for DUI and drug possession. Ms. Veal got the case dismissed. I never had to go to court or anything. Thank you, Ms. Veal.

    • I recommend Holly Veal.
    • I hired Holly 6-12 months ago.
    • Holly handled my Speeding & Traffic Ticket matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I was very nervous to appear in court after receiving a ticket for a moving violation. However, I was recommended to contact Mrs. Veal's office and from the moment I was greeted by the secretary I felt welcomed. Mrs. Veal set up an online account for easy access to view documents etc. of my case and it was never a chore to speak with someone in her office about my case. The day of the court appearance Mrs. Veal was prompt, prepared and ready to defend my case. Due to her preparedness and taking the time to speak with me to understand the ins and outs of the charge my case was dismissed. I highly recommend her and appreciate her for her professionalism, knowledge and the time she took in thoroughly reviewing my case.

  6. Holly Veal's trial performance? I don't think Lt Daniel Kaffe is the only one who could get Col Jessup to confess to code red!!!

    • I recommend Holly Veal.
    • I hired Holly 1-3 years ago.
    • Holly handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Wow! Holly Veal in a jury trial is like throwing a match in a gas can. With just a few breaths of air, she provided an explosive defense that blew apart the DA's case and exposed weak law enforcement techniques. Simple possession charge against my son, who was not guilty, had us seriously considering taking a plea...and he was not guilty! Sometimes its best to get in front of a jury of your peers; they can see through the legal bullying that goes on in some counties. Holly brought the truth out and exposed the weakness in the state's case. Her understanding of law enforcement techniques, DA's strategies, and her own savvy courtroom tactics not only produced a not guilty verdict, but a verdict that was made in about 7 minutes, and jurors apologizing for the state putting us through this charge!
    Thank you Holly for following your intuitions that created an effective strategy; thank you for using the gifted nuances that God gave you in effectively reaching all personality styles within the jury, Thank you for the long hours you put in to make sure you had all the evidence and drafted a plan that orchestrated timing, personality, assertiveness, and truth. It was a pleasure working with you and watching you work in the courtroom.

    • I recommend Holly Veal.
    • I hired Holly 1-3 years ago.
    • Holly handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    I hired Mrs. Veal after speaking with several other attorneys concerning my case. I was charged with family domestic violence. She and her team were always available and knowledgeable of my case and its current status. She did exactly what she said she would do and at no time did I feel as if she was not working for the best possible outcome for me, her client.

    After listening to the details of the case, as told by Mrs. Veal during closing arguments, I could do nothing but rename her Olivia Pope, “Gladiator in a Suit”, for at the moment my problems were completely dissolved. Firstly, she closed with a PowerPoint presentation of the night in question, closing with such attention to detail of the incident; one had no choice but to believe she was telling this story from an eyewitness perspective. Mrs. Veal did an outstanding job for me on my case. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a lawyer. She did a fantastic job.

    • I recommend Holly Veal.

    I was scared! My son, 19 years old, locked up with no bail, facing charges of armed robbery. If found guilty of these charges he would be labelled a felon and serve a 15 year mandatory sentence.

    I was led to Holly, thank God! She saw to it that my son got fair and accurate representation!

    She immediately got bail allowed, then further reduced which allowed me to bond my son out of jail!

    Holly and her team provided and promoted forward, positive movement. Further, they provided strength, poise, confidence, assurance, consistency, teamwork, truthfulness, tissues!, unbridled compassion and understanding, an unexplainable ease which all equates to Excellency.

    They are magical and did not stop until justice was served and satisfaction was fulfilled!

    Her performance in the courtroom can only be described as brilliant. Other lawyers who were in the court could be heard excitingly discussing her intelligence, audaciousness, and overall fierceness!

    Holly led us from fear to joy -even before the verdict; which was NOT GUILTY! I love her! She gave our family our life back! My son is working and travelling and doing well, all thanks to the Veal Law Firm!

    I will advise anyone who wants an attorney who is more than capable, more than experienced, more than able to produce satisfactory results to contact Holly Veal.

    Ms. Veal did a wonderful job representing my 17 year old son. With the new laws he was in danger of losing his license with only 6 points. Ms. Veal was able to work with the courts and save his license. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of an attorney.
