The Best!
Mr. Holmes has been my attorney for over 2 years now. He's been handling all my legal issues pertaining to my divorce. He's be very forth coming about expectations of the process and has earned my trust by simply keeping my interest and the interest of my kids at the forefront. He's very responesive to my calls, and will always go the extra mile to listen when other attorneys I've had won't call for days at a time. The results I've gotten in the court room when I've had to go have been Great!

Stay away!
John was excellent when recruiting me as a client. Once he got his fee, I had to call him and email him constantly. He has several phone numbers. When you call most of the numbers, he has five, the mail boxes are full and you cannot leave a message. He seems to always have different "assistants" and if you go to the office, most of the time it is closed! Run away from this "legal" professional. Any client should NOT have to chase after their lawyer after paying retainer fee to have their legal matters helped with. A lawyer should be your advocate and NOT accuse, disparage, and gaslight you. Review his disciplinary record on the NC Bar webpage. RUN away as fast as you can!

AVVO RATING 5.7 (Average)

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2016.

Suspension With All Stayed issued in NC, 2016
updated on 07/25/2016

Suspension stayed means the attorney has been suspended, but that the suspension is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with certain requirements.

Censure issued in NC, 2010
updated on 01/27/2013

This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
