Posted by Brian, a Child Support client,
I contacted Jeff with some questions regarding a child support modification, after running into multiple dead-ends and being told "sorry, nothing can be done" by several other area lawyers. Jeff not only returned my call the same day, he spent an hour answering my questions and providing me with information other people I had spoken with had previously not given, or just given me a "maybe".
I actually wish I had come across Jeff and had his representation during my actual divorce, and any needs I have going from here on out I will definitely be going through Jeff again. I definitely recommend him to anyone and everyone, his honesty, rapid response, attention to detail and care have won me over!

In March & April of 2013, Mr. Jeffrey W Holmes was referred by the county court to represent me in my Assault in the Fourth Degree case. The court had determined that I was “Near Indigent” which meant I qualified for low-cost legal representation valued at $400. Understanding that $400 typically does not provide for much legal service, I was expecting the worst. This was not the case with Mr. Holmes’s legal service.
This being the first legal matter I’ve ever dealt with, I was very dependent on the advice and guidance of Mr. Holmes. Upon review of my case, Mr. Holmes recommended that I apply for the courts optional Diversion program, and if approved by the Prosecuting District Attorney, and accepted by the Diversion counselor, prior to my court appearance, the judge may follow the approvals of each and accept my request for Diversion and avoiding a trial.
Mr. Holmes clearly provided the steps I should take in preparing for acceptance into the Diversion program, while at the same time he would contact the DA’s office to ask their recommendation of my entry in Diversion. When Mr. Holmes’s phone calls and emails went unreturned from their office, he went to them and waited to be personally seen by the DA in order to explain my case and ask for their recommendation and approval to the Diversion Program. When he left their office he was carrying a signed recommendation that we hand delivered to the Diversion Program, which they in turn approved.
This extra effort by Mr. Holmes proved to me, that in spite of the low fee he was receiving for his services, he was committed to providing the best possible legal service he could. That effort and commitment resulted in a judgment that he (we) worked hard, and hoped for.
I found Mr. Holmes to be very informative, knowledgeable, attentive and personable. His commitment to my case was genuine and well guided, resulting in a positive judgment. I truly appreciate all that Mr. Holmes brought to my case and highly recommend his services to those in need of legal support.

I retained Jeff Holmes to represent me on a protection order in Clark County District Court. Jeff helped me craft a strategy to combat the fallacious claims against my personal character. Mr. Holmes did such a good job that when the Petitioner in the case was served with our declaration, she decided not to show up to court and the case was dismissed. I would recommend Mr. Holmes legal services to anyone looking for a well rounded attorney who understands the law and can protect you from false attacks at your character. Definitely worth the financial investment for the peace of mind I have now.

Jeffrey Holmes is without a doubt the best attorney I've ever used. My husband and I used him for two criminal traffic violations we received while traveling from Salem to Seattle. I interviewed about 5 attorneys before settling on Mr. Holmes and I knew from the way he responded to my questions he was the right choice.
Throughout the entire process Mr. Holmes was extremely responsive, informative and knowledgeable. He made it so my husband and I didn't have to take more time off work to travel back to Washington (we had 3 court dates scheduled!) which was so helpful. He was able to get one of our tickets dismissed and the other reduced to a non moving violation with a low fine. We were so pleased with the outcome!
Mr. Holmes was not only the most communicative and knowledgeable attorney we could have worked with, but he charged us an extremely reasonable fee and worked with our financial situation. I only wish he practiced law down in Oregon so I could recommend him to everyone I know!

We hired Jeff at the recommendation of another attorney. He went above and beyond our expectations with just a short amount of notice before appearing in court. He was able to help us come to an agreement with the other party that suited everyone involved. His communication was stellar. If he didn't have the answer to something he researched it. I would highly recommend him!

I have used Jeffrey Holmes in several different capacities, as a Realtor doing short sales, preparing LLC docs, advising on investment properties as well as general counsel. I have found him to be very ethical and fair but the best thing is that he reminds me what I need to do and keeps me on track. I have worked with several attorneys who were huge disappointments, and I appreciate that Jeff does what he says he going to do WHEN he says he's going to do it. I value my relationship with him.
Posted by Christine, a Personal Injury client,
I contacted Jeff after becoming frustrated with trying to settle an injury claim against a national company. Although the business had admitted liability the insurance company remained difficult if not unreasonable. Criminal, family law and personal injury cases are often emotional, sometimes painful and always personal. I needed an attorney who understood. I was ready to walk away from the claim when I found Jeff. With his experience as a prosecutor I had hoped Jeff would represent me against the insurance company much in the same manner he had represented victims and the State of Washington.
Jeff exceeded my expectations. He is everything and more any client could ask for in an attorney. Jeff is professional, trustworthy, intelligent, articulate, attentive, and genuine. From our initial meeting I was immediately comfortable with Jeff. Jeff communicates with clients as though he is a member of your family or a close friend. He returned every call and responded to every email. I trusted Jeff completely. I never felt as though my case was just a business transaction.
