Fantastic service
We hired Dave to represent my husband and I in a small business matter. He has always followed up in an expedient manner and has thus far provided us with excellent representation. We are very happy we found him and highly recommend him to others!

Highly Recommended! The cream of the crop.
My experience working with Dave far exceeded any expectation I had of what working with a lawyer could be like. The first time I met him in person, I was absolutely blown away with his preparation and knowledge. Every question I came to the meeting obsessing over, he already had an answer for and every answer included a plan ten steps ahead of anything I would have thought of. Dave took the time to thoroughly explain his answers to me in a way I could understand and in a way that left me feeling absolutely confident that I was in the best legal hands. Dave is not only well versed in the law, but he's personable, and extremely responsive. When you're talking to him you feel 100% confident that you have his undivided attention and are receiving the absolute best legal advice available. And he goes out of his way to make himself available to you, by returning your phone calls quickly, responding to your emails fast, and keeping you as up to date with your situation as you possibly can be. Any legal situation is stressful, but hiring Dave was one of the best decisions I could have made, as his professionalism and confidence in his knowledge of the law helped me deal with the stress and anxiety of the situation.

Great Job , would use again
Dave Holloway helped guide me thru the paperwork, Law and my options... He was always there to answer a call and make changes as needed. He worked hard and I feel I got the best result for the situation. He followed up after the case numerous times to see how i was doing and help solve any lingering issues

Clear, thorough, knowledgable, responsive . . .
I had a pretty straight-forward question about who can officiate a wedding and I wanted a legal perspective. A colleague who knows David personally said I should reach out, so I sent him my question. I didn't expect to hear back, since 3 other lawyers had never gotten back to me--my question wasn't going to be any kind of a money-maker. To my surprise and delight, David replied with a well-researched, very clear explanation that puts me in position to move forward with confidence and peace of mind. He didn't charge me anything, so can't identify myself as a client, but, his communication style puts him at the top of the admittedly small pile of lawyers I've worked with, and I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to him again in the future.

Excellent experience
When I needed help understanding the language in a contract that needed signing, David was an immense help. He steered me in the right direction so that I could make an informed decision to help grow my business. He is easy to talk to and very accommodating when it came to my timeline. I will definitely be going back to David for any and all legal matters involving my business.

Beyond Competent, Honest, Extremely Skilled and Knowledgeable
Mr. Holloway is one of the best attorneys I've had the fortune of working with. He's extremely professional, competent, thorough and honest. The struggle many of us encounter with several attorneys who increase the scope of the service for their own financial gain- is NOT something you will experience with Mr. Holloway. He is excellent at interpreting your legal options in layman's terms so that you are clear before any action is taken, or before undertaking any proceeding. The other helpful positive with his approach is that he will only take your case if he truly believes he can help you and has the capabilities to work towards the best possible outcome on your behalf (within the guidelines of what the law provides). I especially appreciate that quality about Mr. Holloway's services, as I I've had the unfortunate experience of having another attorney in the past who took my case knowing that the specific legal area was NOT in his wheelhouse (as I'm sure many persons have unfortunately endured as well). I found working with him to be an absolute pleasure and would highly recommend him to any one. If you're not sure where to begin with your legal matter call Mr. Holloway!
