Five Stars!
It was a wonderful experience working with Amy Holland! She is a great attorney and I am so glad she was on my side! In 2015, Amy decided to take me on as a new client even though I had a difficult interstate case. I quickly found that she is very experienced, ethical and professional, but also caring and kind. She really listened to my situation and to all my questions and concerns. Amy was very patient with me as I brought my questions and concerns to her and as I took time to gather all the information that she needed for my case. She regularly made herself available to help me, even without a phone appointment. I am very grateful for this. Amy worked effectively with the opposing counsel and the guardian ad litem in order to find solutions that would work well for everyone, especially for my daughter. She also drafted a very good and very favorable agreement. Amy was willing to explain reasons for things that would’ve otherwise been difficult to understand, especially because I'm not familiar with Virginia. She helped me to clearly see all my actual options at any given time during the process, and she was realistic about all the possible outcomes and the overall timelines. Amy remained positive and steady even when the behavior I was experiencing from my duaghter’s mother often caused the case to feel shaky, volatile and impossible. I am extremely grateful for Amy, her experience, and her hard work!

Review for Amy
Amy was very thorough answering any questions that I had. The previous will I had doesn't even compare to this one. Amy's so personable it was comfortable talking to her about very sensitive information. I would & will highly recommend Amy!

Outstanding Divorce Attorney!
I contacted this lawyer to get answers on questions about filing for divorce. Because of my hectic schedule, she gave me a choice to meet in person for the free consultation, or to come to the office. After the initial consult, I agreed to proceed and BOY I was impressed by her all the way through! She is efficient, very experienced, and I was divorced within 3 weeks! I was able to text her anytime I had a question and she responded right away. Love, love, love her! Highly recommend her. I will be using her talents again for other things soon, like making a trust. She ishonest, caring, and reliable!

A woman of integrity
I’ve known Amy for almost 17 years and although I’ve not had any experience with her as my lawyer, I wouldn’t hesitate to hire her if I needed one (and if we lived in the same state). She is patient, determined, loyal, trustworthy, fair, and always willing to help someone in need! A true woman of integrity. I will say I did consult with her legal knowledge one time and although it was out of her realm, she did send my question to someone who might know. Always helpful and a sweet gal!

Total PRO!
My wife and I commissioned Amy Holland to help us prepare a will for our family. Right off the bat, it felt as though we had known each other for years. She spoke clearly and decisively, explained everything to us with absolute clarity and always wore a smile. My wife and I were hesitant to do this in the first place because we try to keep away from lawyers haha, but she took our breath away with her professionalism and sincerity. This young woman deserves praise for how she took care of us. We almost didn’t want her to leave our home, as she felt like a part of our family, and in just a tiny amount of time. I would recommend Amy Holland to ANYONE in need of her services. She has our upmost respect and heart felt gratitude for everything she did for us. Thank you Amy Holland! Thank you so much!

Mrs. Holland
Amy was an amazing resource in planning our Will and getting all of our ducks in a row for the future! We had no idea where to start and Mrs. Holland made the entire process a breeze. She brought things to our attention that we would have never considered to include in our Will. I highly recommend Amy for all of your family needs! Thanks Amy!

Pleasant and proficient
I contacted Mrs. Holland about a personal matter involving my children. She was honest in her assessment of my situation and, though it was not within her purview, she went the extra mile to help me find help. I appreciate her support during my time of need and would recommend her to anyone!
