I had a very difficult case that I was dealing with under a Juvenile court matter. My son had been abused by his Fathers live in girlfriend, and without notification the CPS had taken custody of my child through a detention hearing while I resided in another state. I hired John Holmes in my defense since they were keeping my son without cause. I had no allegations or charges against me for what someone else had done to my child. They were trying to keep my son and John came to my defense and contested the hearings and I just won custody of my son after 1 yr of him being placed in the system. John made sure he represented me with Ethics and Honor. He is a really good attorney and has always listened and given great advice. He made it to where my son came home with me during the process of the court hearings and showed how the CPS was ridiculous in the way they were handling this case. John always returned my phone calls and kept me informed of the situations and what steps we would be taking . Now that this case is over, I just want to thank you again John for all of the work and representation you gave to me; For being my advocate through a difficult time. I would highly recommend John M. Holmes for anyone that needs defense.
We were extremely fortunate that Mr. Holmes was assigned to represent our adult son who has autism and ADD on parole violation charges. Mr. Holmes was on top of the case immediately and kept us informed before and after the hearing. He returned phone calls and email messages promptly and was always professional and forthright. He continues to represent our son and we are honored to give Mr. Holmes our highest recommendation without reservation.
