After graduating near the top of his class in law school Mr. Holland spent several years at the prestigious law firm of Perkins Coie practicing products liability and aviation accident defense litigation. He left the defense practice for the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office where he tried more than thirty cases to local juries. After sharpening his trial skills as a prosecutor Mr. Holland returned to civil litigation, where he has obtained substantial verdicts and awards, including a $2,400,000 award for his client in a real estate partnership dispute, a $10,000,000 judgment for wrongful death, a $2,000,000 settlement against the Kent School District for injury to a student-athlete during a sports practice, a $1,300,000 settlement for over-service of alcohol, and a $1,000,000 settlement for professional negligence.
