Protecting myself and my 2 kids!
I spoke with several attorneys in the southern Maine area and was very disappointed with the way some of them wanted to handle the case or their lack of interest and willing to help. Finding Pam was an absolute blessing, not only did she take my case and do things the way I wanted to do them, she was passionate as if she herself were going through what my kids and I were. She has gone above and beyond what I could of asked of her! I would recommend her to anyone for a seperation, domestic violence and/or parental rights case!!!! Thank you so much Pam, you gave us our lives back!!!!

Excellence personified
Pamela demonstrates a unique ability to use her knowledge of the law and combine it with her compassion, willingness to listen and excellent communication skills to support and advise her clients effectively. She demonstrates sound judgment and superb competency. She is reliable, thorough and dependable. I highly recommend her to those I know and to anyone who is in need of an excellent attorney and person to lead them through the most challenging legal situations.

Professional divorce, custody, mediation, etc.
Pam Holmes is an excellent attorney for handling extremely difficult and challenging cases involving divorce and custody issues. I couldn't have found a better person to deal with my case, with the legal guardian, and my ex-wife and her lawyer. Pam is organized, very professional, excellent at defending and representing her clients in court and in mediation. I can't say enough good things about her, and I highly recommend her.

Coronavirus Wedding Woes
Pam was instrumental in helping us with rescheduling our wedding reception in the midst of the Coronavirus health crisis. Her professionalism with our venue coordinators went above and beyond, and enabled us to have a postponement date that worked out for everyone involved. Highly recommend her and can not say enough how thrilled we found her during this difficult time!

Child Custody
Child Custody/safety cases are by far the most difficult cases on every level. I am so thankful I was referred to Pamela Holmes. She is, hands down, the most straight forward, clear cut, no BS attorney I’ve ever dealt with. I have had 3 others to help me in the past ... none compare, none were able to help me at this level. To say I’m Grateful is not enough. I highly recommend her. She will do her best and get the job done. I’m happy to say she helped me win my case.

Professional-Loyal-Honest-Caring
Hiring Pamela and Holmes legal group was the best decision I have ever made. I have been working with her for the past 7 years, I trust her unconditionally. She has again and again delivered what she said she would. I’m at peace knowing she’s not leaving my side. The entire team is always prepared and organized. They do what they say they will- consistently- no grey areas ever. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do.

Look to Holmes Legal Group to Represent You
After consulting with others in the local area that recently went through a divorce, Holmes Legal Group was my first and only call. At the initial meeting, Pamela took the time to understand my situation and asked what my goals were in the end. She then inquired as to how I was doing and ensured I was knowledgeable, understood what the process would be in the ensuing months and the risks. At each point in the process, she offered a calm/steady approach, was extremely prepared, and continued to ask how I was doing. Whether it was mediation, scheduled court appearances or the correspondence exchanges in between, Pamela was available for questions, provided options and suggested a course of action that met my goals. When you decide to be represented by Pamela, the entire Holmes Legal Group team is there to support you!

Long Journey; Great Leader; Thanks Pam.
Having used the services of the Holmes Legal Group twice in the past 10 years, I can attest to the integrity of this competent firm. Attorney Holmes legally and respectfully led me thru a mentally challenging divorce and most recently, a long litigation journey regarding a retirement benefit issue challenged by my ex spouse. In the second half of this litigation encounter, I no longer lived in Maine and was unable to commute for court dates, so, Pam intervened and represented me solo. I am grateful for the outcome because I believe it was fair for both my ex spouse and me. Attorney Holmes brings to her service a deeper understanding of women's issues thru her connection and work with the "Caring Unlimited" service group. Pam is a great listener and she "hears " you. You are protected.

Easier than my marriage
Pam is a major prescence in both mediation and the courtroom for trial. She is well-prepared and reliable. She also has wit and procedural awareness. I was referred to her by a close family friend, who is a divorce lawyer in NH, so I already felt a sense of security and confidence. I now understand why he felt she was the right choice for me! She provided superb fair representation and helped resolve a difficult situation as smoothly as she could.

Divorce after 39 years of marriage
Excellent lawyer. Through the process of the divorce, I certainly had some moments and Pam and her staff were there to assure me that everything would be okay and it did end okay. She did a great job protecting me and she never got rattled or lost focus of her goal to make sure I would come out of the divorce in the best possible way. I want to thank Pamela for her hard work, her compassion and understanding and her commitment to protect me through the whole divorce process. After 39 years of marriage and 43 years of being with my wife, this was the most difficult thing I have ever experienced and Pam just kept assuring me it was going to be okay. Once again, thank you Pamela Holmes and the staff of Holmes Legal Group for being there and for protecting me. The very best to you and your staff.

Can never thank her enough
Pam took my divorce case after a 30 minute free first consultation. She followed up and worked for me and my children faithfully during the almost two years the process lasted. Thanks to her my two children and I can have a life now with access to what rightfully and lawfully corresponded to us. She's extremely knowledgeable and responsive. Best lawyer you can have by your side. Thank you so much Pam and staff.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Attorney Holmes is one of the best family law attorneys I have ever worked against. She is a staunch advocate for her clients, but she is not unreasonable or unnecessarily adversarial in her advocacy. Pam is also a skilled litigator who has always represented her clients well at trial. If you are in need of strong family law attorney in York or Cumberland County, I would highly suggest retaining Attorney Holmes."
