Consumer Debt Collection
The Holland Firm is the absolute BEST!!! They helped me win against a debt collection agency. They are true professionals. They took my case and stuck with me throughout the entire stressful process which was almost 2 years. They kept me informed via phone and email. They are understanding, honest, ethical and very knowledgeable. They genuinely care about the client and not the money. If you need representation, DO NOT HESITATE to hire them!! You will not be disappointed.

Excellent Lawyer
I have known Peter Holland and Emanwel Turnbull of the Holland Law firm, Annapolis, Maryland for almost 5 years. In that time, I have known them to be very, very good at understanding and applying the law in defense of their clients. They are very ethical, sensitive, easy to work with, and excellent lawyers. When an unscrupulous abusive HOA attorney tried to unethically use the law against me. Peter Holland and Emanwel Turnbull defended me and did not allow it. When that same corrupt HOA attorney and equally greedy associated property management company charged homeowners unauthorized late fees, the Holland firm did not allow it. They defended the homeowners through a class action suit and forced the bully HOA attorney and corrupt property management company to cease charging unauthorized fees and return all illegally charged fees back to homeowners. I was so impressed with, and appreciative of the Holland Law firm and their attorneys, especially Peter Holland and Emanwel Turnbull, that I offered to pay them more than what they were billing me, as a gesture of my appreciation. They would not have it. They suggested that instead I donate appreciation funds to the Economic Action Maryland or the National Association of Consumer Advocates. If you are looking for legal defense against corrupt, unscrupulous, unethical, insensitive, crooks and scammers, I highly recommend the Holland Law firm. Your chances of winning your case and having a positive legal experience is extremely high. Thank God we have the Holland Law firm to defend and protect us.

Some Super Heroes Wear Suits
Mr. Peter Holland and his team at The Holland Law Firm did an exceptional job with my case. During a time when I felt taken advantage of and defeated, I reached out to the firm for assistance. From day one, they were there to advise and guide me through a legal process and provided the best legal support anyone could ask for. He was very knowledgeable, responsive and kept me updated on all actions along the way. In the end, their hard work and dedication to me as client ended up being rewarding to not only me but also others in the same situation.

Extremely knowledgeable and helpful representation.
I was referred to Holland Law Firm in March 2021 after receiving a summons regarding a previous student loan. Initially, it was just for advice on what to do regarding the summons, but after our first conversation, I asked if Peter Holland and his team would help me with my case. What I liked the most about this firm is how organized and knowledgeable Mr. Holland was. Not knowing where to start or what to do, Peter Holland helped me in providing all the necessary documents for my case. At the time, I was dealing with family illness and loss. Despite the stress, Peter and his team, helped me through a difficult situation. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case and would highly recommend The Holland Law Firm.

Fantastic
Mr Holland is fantastic. After getting into a mess with Student Loans, I wanted to find someone who was knowledgeable and could make sense of what was happening to me. All the reviews I read about Mr. Holland were great and I understand why. He made sense out of all the stuff I couldn't understand and was very clear, professional, and communicated throughout the whole process. I'm so happy with the outcome of my case, it feels like the biggest burden has been lifted off my shoulders and I can finally live my life. I would highly recommend!

Review of Holland Law Firm
My name is Michael and I am currently a Baltimore County resident and a client of the Holland Law Firm. I first contacted Peter Holland in the spring of 2019 for help in resolving an issue concerning a financial judgement obtained against me several years earlier. After exchanging several phone calls and emails I met with Peter at his Annapolis office in March. I found him to be not only a competent but a consummate professional. Peter meticulously went through every page of the court documents concerning the judgement with me as well as my three different credit reports. He then helped me to navigate through three pages of interrogatories served on me by the opposing counsel. He showed me some intricacies of the law of which I was not even aware such as an exemption from attachment for personal property for up to $6,000.00 . He then filed the paperwork with the appropriate court to secure the exemption. After this he negotiated a settlement for me that was far better than I had a right to hope for and ample time in which to make payment. Peter's legal acumen and it's applicability to an individual case along with his empathy for his client makes him a truly remarkable individual. Some may equal him but there is no one who surpasses him. He is in a class with a very short roll call. I found his fee to be both affordable and equitable and consider myself fortunate that Peter consented to take me on as a client

Consumer Protection
Peter Holland is one of the best attorneys that I have come across. Peter has been helping me with a Fair Credit Reporting Act/Consumer Protection issue for almost two years. He is welcoming, client-oriented, dedicated, and driven. He takes time to explain every little detail to clients so that they feel comfortable and confident in their decisions. Not once have I felt like a neglected client. While his law firm is not considered large, his presence in the legal community is. He is not intimidated by large law firms or corporate organizations. His main agenda is making his client feel heard, validated, and satisfied. I truly cannot recommend Peter enough.

Debt Collection
Mr Holland is an exceptional attorney and his knowledge and dedication is unsurpassed. Word of mouth from one person to another is your best referral I do believe. I was in an overwhelming situation from old investment properties from several years ago. Debt buyers showed up after the debt had been sold 3 times over. I was in shock and scared I contacted Mr. Holland. His knowledge and expertise helped aid in taking care of the situation. He is a caring attorney when I felt I was in a hopeless situation. I have a fresh start without looking over my shoulder from the debt buyers. Call the Holland Law firm they will do an outstanding job for you. Bridget
