Jim took over my case when my other lawyer left to take another job. I was a little worried about that, but Jim came right in, worked with me and my husband, and we had a great result. He will work non stop to ensure you get a fair shake, and is very caring and compassionate as well. It makes you feel like he feels your pain as well. He is like a member of your family, or almost anyway!
I highly recommend him!

James has gone to the end and beyond for me and my case. He's always gotten everything done that he said he would, and in the time he said it would be done. He always looks out for my best interests, and was able to help me out of a couple tight spots. You need a lawyer? you need James Holland

James took on my case in the middle after my original personal injury attorney took another job. Honestly, I was a little concerned and skeptical having someone jump into my case in the middle.
James eliminated any concerns I had the first time I spoke with him!
Not only was he already familiar with my case, he realized how difficult it is to wait years to reach a settlement and dug right into it.
James is kind, compassionate and legitimately concerned with you as a person and how the accident affected your life!
He got right on it and within a few months I had a substanstial disbursement that could not have come at a better time!
The case is settled and Jim continues to work hard for me to get me the most while allowing me to relax and concentrate on recovering and regaining my pre-accident life while he handles all the final details.
Although I sometimes felt like a bugged James endlessly, he was patient with me and always empathetic to my needs. He has the patience of a saint!
I highly recommend James should you ever need an attorney who cares and can deliver!

The purpose of this review is to highly commend James Holland and to enthusiastically endorse him as a prospective attorney for clients who need legal assistance and are inclined to employ his services.
My wife and I worked with Mr. Holland and other associates to litigate a partnership lawsuit. It was a lengthy, arduous process which took over a year to resolve.
During the course of this effort and in our interactions with Mr. Holland, we determined that he is an incredible attorney who has an engaging personality coupled with a full grasp of the law and the extraordinary ability to argue salient points of our case relative to the law. Without a doubt, the man is a decent human being and an awesome attorney.
My wife and I were referred to his firm by others within the community. His firm and he were well regarded in the community, so we engaged him to solicit his help.
From the start, it was readily apparent he knew the law. Moreover, his talent as a lawyer was manifested by his ability to align the material facts with the legal principles relevant to our case.
Notwithstanding, application of the law and interaction with the court are just one aspect of being an outstanding attorney. Other traits are just as important and these relate to various personality and character traits. In this case, Mr. Holland is truly an outstanding attorney and, as stated above, a decent human being.
When you engage him, you are readily put at ease by his charm and his definite concern for the welfare of his clients. Despite the circumstances, the abrasiveness of the opposing attorney and the testiness of others involved in the process, he kept his calm and was always looking out for his clients to ensure they were at ease and comfortable with the extraordinary process of litigating a lawsuit. Without a doubt, the entire process was painstaking and thus stressful for our family; consequently, he made sure the effort was affected in a manner to ensure we weren’t overwhelmed with the immense legalities and the challenging brashness of the opposing attorney.
During the course of the process, it was readily apparent that Mr. Holland has an unparalleled work ethic. He worked tirelessly with others within his firm to ensure our case was properly developed and succinctly presented to the court.
Along the way, he diligently worked with us to ensure the facts were properly presented and the means of doing so were ethical and above reproach. His honesty and ethical behavior are truly a credit to him.
To us, Mr. Holland is an attorney’s attorney! He demonstrated that he was a competent officer of the court, a well grounded jurist and a compassionate human being. Thus my wife and I highly endorse Mr. Holland and recommend him for work with others who choose to employ him to be their legal representative.

Jim Holland made me feel at ease the moment I was introduced to him. I was so worried about my situation when first approaching Jim but that day I walked out of his office, I felt all the stress in my body, melt off my shoulders, down my body and out of my feet. The hospitality and caring attitude Jim has, never went away, he continued to keep me informed and was persistant with everything pertaining to my case. My case was recently finalized and I couldn't be happier. I know who I would call if I needed that kind of help in the future. Thanks Jim!!!

Jim Holland represented us in a contentious, politically visible real estate contracts case. Prior to this, we had no personal or professional experience with Jim. He was professional all times, knowledgeable of related cases which supported our position. He initially won a summary judgment which was a crucial point in the eventual outcome of this case. Throughout the trial he was extremely well prepared, including graphics to illustrate critical points. While this case was finally decided at the state appeals level, Jim's work and cooperation with our appeals attorney provided a sound basis for our eventually prevailing. The plaintiff appealed to the state Supreme Court and this action was denied. We were pleased with Jim's performance as our primary attorney. He did an excellent job with the 7 depositions and was able to point to discrepancies in testimony of 5 of these individuals versus their depositions. Our communication with Jim throughout this 4 year ordeal was open, honest, and current. He obviously felt personally invested in our case. Jim always advised us to be honest with our testimony. Based on our experience, we have no hesitation in recommending Jim Holland.

Jim came highly recommended as an attorney and I retained him despite the fact that he was more than 200 miles away. When it came to one of the most important matters in my life I felt like I needed the best lawyer I could find, even if he happened to be in Seattle. The result he obtained on my case was astounding. Jim was always available for my phone calls, and spent significant time educating me about the legal system and keeping me informed about my case, which enabled me to make intelligent decisions. His legal strategy was brilliant and directly produced exceptional results in my case. Moreover, he provided a steadying hand during a very complicated and confusing time in my life and his reassurance made the process more bearable. As a professional there’s no question that Jim is among the best. As a person I can’t say enough about his honesty and integrity. If you’re lucky enough to get him to take your case you’ll be in great hands.
