I am from India and one year back my wife been to JCP for shopping and she has involved unknowingly in a theft case , cops didn't arrested her but after 4 months we got a arrest warrant. My wife got scared and also she would like to go back to India. After living in US almost 10 years first time we got into this kind of problem. I searched in Google I got Mr. Holden Green. He is very relaible he charged us only 1600$ and never asked me any extra money. With in 9 months the case has been resolved by paying 650$ fine.My wife never attended any court date. After hiring Mr Green so many Indian community attorneys called us to take over this case but honestly they scared us and also they wanted to charge more money, I convinced my wife and we stick with Mr Holden Green. Finally my trust saved us. He is a very nice person and he is very good in immediate response through email. I would like to recommend Mr Holden Green to every one who is really looking for best attorney in Bay Area. Good luck and God Bless you Mr Holden Green. More than money he will concentrate on case and help to his clients with honest and dedicated work.

I recently was detained and was being housed in Santa Clara Counties Main Jail for a probation violation(My first). If you know the system, you understand how confusing, drawn out, and stressful your days can go. Luckily, I had a Fiance that was more then supportive and we both agreed that we weren't going to take our chances with a public defender so she quickly hopped online and starting browsing for lawyers in the bay area. She spoke with a few and was disappointed to see how impatient some of them were and on top of that asking for so much in return for such rude service. Then she stumbled upon Mr. Green who instantly stood out to her from his reviews and also his professionalism, and after calling him was almost instantly called back with a free consultation that same day to discuss my case. After hearing my case, discussing our living and financial situation, he didn't just set a demanded price but he asked my Fiance what we could afford to pay which wasn't what we were expecting at all. We gave him an idea of what we were looking to spend and we agreed on a very reasonable cost. That same day he went to work collecting as much information about my living situation and personal life that would help show the judge that I've gotten my life turned around and set on a straight path. He didn't stop checking in with my Fiance and also visiting me in county till my first court date and he showed up more then prepared. I was informed at my court date that i was possibly looking at 7 months and it was absolutely nerve wracking but Mr. Green didn't let me loose hope. He had a set game plan and stuck to it. He requested a sit down court hearing with just the judge, the D.A., and himself, less then a week after my first court date. It was hard to stay strong and keep my composure but Mr. Green continued to show great service and reassure me that the end results would be worth the patience. At my next hearing Mr. Green showed me everything I needed to see, to ensure that I will never need to look for another Lawyer again. I went from looking at 7 months to getting 45 days w/ half time..which at the point of this court date, was only 2 days away. This was the best outcome I could have imagined and unfortunately, not everyone is lucky enough to get a second chance like I did. After my release not only did Mr. Green keep in contact with me to make sure that I was getting back on track with life and also getting reinstated with Probation. I give him 5 stars and would definitely recommend Mr. Green to anyone who is looking for a very educated, professional, caring, and result seeking lawyer.

I contacted Mr. Green to see if he could help my friend who was in jail. Although I never actually hired him, he was very responsive and gave me good general advice and told me about the process necessary to help my friend.
He has a kind, empathetic manner. I will definitely call him again if I need an attorney.

Before I hired Attorney Green as my attorney, I had tremendous research online. I have chosen Attorney Green for his professionalism. Not only he is a very organized attorney, he is indeed honest. In addition, Attorney Green is always updated with the current law. I remembered when I showed him a printout that it cannot be done, Attorney Green assured me it can be done. I was delighted knowing that Attorney Green still gave me hope. He is direct to the point. Also, he always keeps me updated with my case. Thank you so much, Attorney Green for your service. I really recommend you. You are a great attorney.

I found Mr. Green to be able to think outside of the box and to be a creative problem solver. The whole trial process was very new to me and Mr. Green not only represented me well, but he was always explaining what he was doing and why as well as encouraging me. He provided psychological support by re-framing things so that I could put everything into perspective during a very stressful time when I was ready to give up.

I had an issue, Federal, Northern Dist. of CA, that was unresolved from 2002. In 2005, 2006, previously retained lawyers told me not to bother the Feds with my issue. In 2011, I decided to look for a young, ambitious, responsive attorney in Northern California. I found Holden by google, called, liked the way he responded to my questions and was inspired by his enthusiasm to handle my issue.
For a fair and reasonable price, Holden did exactly what he said he could do, no, tricks, no extra $$, no BS. He did what he said and said what he did. You can't ask for more than that in an attorney. Period.

This is my second time hiring Mr.Green because he helped me so much the first time that I trusted him to handle my case again. He got me what I want it and always keep me informed to what is going on. Responded very quickly to my calls and extremely knowledgeable about the laws. Thank you again for all your help Mr.Green. I truly appreciated it!

I want to give my honest review of the services I received by Holden Green. I hired Mr. Green to help me expunge two misdemeanor DUI’s. I violated the probation of both DUI’s with other misdemeanors. The San Jose adult probation would not expunge these. I tried to file on my own and they rejected them. Mr. Green was able to negotiate the dismissal of both DUI’s. It took about 6 months total time and I had to do 100 hours of community service work, which was pleasant (thank you, Vida Nueva). I felt that was very fair considering my two violations. Mr. Green was very prompt in returning my calls and keeping me updated with the cases. His prices were fair and affordable. I compared his prices to others and his are good. One last thing, on the day I was to meet Mr. Green for the first time, on the way to his San Jose office, my car started to break down and barley made it to his office. Mr. Green used his own AAA card miles to have my car towed to my house in San Jose about 20 miles away. I really appreciated that.

I found Mr. Green through a Google search. I was a little skeptical after reading the negative reviews online. I called several lawyers and Mr. Green called me back the same day. After speaking to him for a few minutes it was clear he knew what he was talking about. He knew who the judge was and exactly what needed to happen. I was given clear instructions by him on what I needed to do to get my reduction. Mr. Green was very professional. He was very easy to get a hold of on the phone. I would recommend him to anyone.

Mr. Green has advised me on several occasions in a couple of different areas of the law. He has always been responsive, concise and well informed. I would recommend him for any dispute or criminal matter.

Mr Green is great. He really helped me out alot. I knew that probation was going to try and violate me so he came in and represented me. Next thing you know probation ask that i be violated. He was able to get me off with a warning. Since then he has stuck with me at every moment. im constanly emailing him with new questions regarding several new matters and he always gets back to me in a quick and timely manner. Even though i dont have alot of money he agreed to work with me on some payment arrangements. I am extremely satisfied with the way everything has panned out with him. i would recommend that anyone who legal problems and needs a lawyer to contact Mr Green. over the past 8 years i have used more than 5 attorneys. He is the only one that has fought for me and the only one i would use in the future. Call him, he really knows what hes doing!!

I've been in trouble a few times. I wish i would of hired him in my crimminal case because my other lawyers did not do anything for me or inform me of my options.
I just hired Mr. Green to do my expungement. He was able to get all charges expunged. He did everything in 1 month. The good thing about this lawyer is that he is very responsive. He got back to me everytime within the hour. But more so is the result. He did exactly what he promised me.

I goggled Holden Green and was impressed by the detail provided on his website. (www.hwgreen.com) I ended up calling him on a Sunday about my situation and he was considerate enough to speak to me for an hour on his Sunday afternoon. He was able to write a strong declaration, and petition for factual innocence for me and my record was sealed/cleared. I am very thankful to Holden for his attention to detail and incredible knowledge of defense law. I would not hesitate to contact him again in the future.

MR. GREEN WAS VERY COMMUNICATIVE AND EFFECIENT. HE NEVER WENT BEYOND HIS AGREED TO RETAINER. THE CASE APEARED HOPELESS,BUT THIS LAWYER WORKED THE FACTS AND INVESTIGATED THE CASE AND AS A RESULT A TRIAL WAS AVOIDED AND I GOT A GRETA RESULT. THIS IS A GREAT ATTORNEY WHO I WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYONE IN LEGAL TROUBLE-EVEN WITH AN ARREST.
