    • I recommend Ian Holmes.
    • I hired Ian 1-3 years ago.
    • Ian handled my Construction / Development matter.

    We chose Ian to represent our firm in a complicated construction and financial matter involving multiple parties. It was apparent throughout the case that Ian was always looking out for our best interests. Ian always looked for ways to minimize costs while still aggressively defending us. Ian is honest, client-focused and more than capable. His initial assessment of the case proved to be accurate. We regularly recommend Ian and will continue to do so.

    • Ian handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I have been around at my age with multiple businesses and having several attorneys. However, having a very honest, honorable, intelligent attorney in one person is rare. This attorney will work very hard on your side and he will exceed your expecation. You will be more than satisfy with Mr. Holmes and you will be glad to have him representing. He will permanently be my attorney, not just personal issues. He's also rep. business, check the web site and good luck.

    • I recommend Ian Holmes.

    I called his office to see if I needed to retain his services for a Landlord/Tenent dispute. He took the time to speak to me on the phone, answered all of my questions thoroughly and professionally, and actually stated that I could probably handle it myself. You don't really see that kind of honesty these days when there is money to be made.

    • I recommend Ian Holmes.
    • I hired Ian 1-3 years ago.
    • Ian handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    After interviewing a handful of attorneys for my divorce, I met with Ian Holmes because a good friend of mine had recommended him. Ian is an extremely bright person and has a rare blend of analytical and interpersonal skills. He led me through this very emotional time by balancing compassion and action. He has demonstrated extraordinary diligence and perseverance throughout my legal proceedings. Ian has a gift of gab which enhances his performance during cases. Of all the attorneys I had to hire in the past 25 years, no one had protected me as well as Ian did. His meticulous approach in problem solving is exceptional; so exceptional that my ex-husband has accepted to hire him with me to protect us in the foreclosure of our home. I think that says it all. I take pride in recommending Ian Holmes as an attorney.

    • I recommend Ian Holmes.
    • I hired Ian 1-3 years ago.
    • Ian handled my Business matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I used Mr Holmes in a business litigation case where another party tried to claim partial ownership of my business. Over the years I have used several different lawyers who all tend to just go through the motions, aren't aggressive and are happy to drag the case along so they can continue to unnecessarily bill the client. Worse than that, most lawyers have no business experience nor have the street smarts to fully comprehend what was actually taking place.

    The first thing I noticed about Ian is he is very competitive. He clearly doesn't like to lose but also doesn't get emotional about the case-very level headed. Secondly, he thinks outside the box which Ive never experienced with an attorney. He was very creative with our strategy that left the opposing counsel very confused. It was very refreshing to me that not only was he well versed on the Florida business statutes, but he actually understands business and I can't overstate how important that was to me.
    The last thing a prospective client of Ian should know is how transparent he is when it comes to expected fees. He really did everything in his power to minimize not only my legal bill but the length of the case.
    Highly recommended to anyone with business issues. I can promise an entirely different experience from what you are used to. .

    • I recommend Ian Holmes.
    • I hired Ian more than 3 years ago.
    • Ian handled my Copyright Infringement matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Ian was able to quickly resolve a matter that had been an issue for our company for years. I appreciated his efficient manner and his ability to find compromise without damaging our position. He is young, but one would not know it by his grasp of law, and abiity to be personable while remaining effective. Would definitely recommend.

    Excellent attorney, very knowledgeable and worked very hard on my case. Mr. Holmes came highly reccomended to me through a business friend who he had won several settlements for. I plan to use Mr. Holmes for all my litigation needs and copyright infringement, he is by far the best attorney I've used. He exceeded my expectations in all legal and personal aspects.
