Wow
I was just glad this guy was on my side. He doesn't miss much and he cuts through all the "bullshit" and focuses only on those pertinent legal issues that matters to your case. I'm pretty sure he will be able to recite the finer points of the Florida divorce statues while on his death bed.

My case took a long time but I was very pleased with all that was done on my behalf, I was kept informed on what was going on and what i could expect, Mr Holman was well prepared and if I ever needed an attorney in the future I would retain him again as well as recommend him to anyone I know in need of a good lawyer.

Why I recommend The Holman Law Firm
I highly recommend The Holman Law Firm, when you need to hire an attorney or just need good advise on legal issues. Stephen and Justin Holman are extremely good at what they do and have the experience you need for the best end results for their clients. I was most impressed with the level of professionalism of all staff members. I felt like I was part of their family and will always remember how caring and comfortable they made me feel. Experience, Professionalism, and Customer Service, truly separates The Holman Law Firm from other law firms in the area. Thank you so much for the services you provided when I needed them the most.

I hired Mr. Holman to help me with an annulment of my marriage. What made my case more difficult is we had to fine my spouse in order to serve her. Annulments in Florida are very uncommon and require some navigation through tricky legal requirements. Mr. Holman did a great job for me. He was well prepared and was ready when it came to my final hearing. I'd use him again but I sure hope I never have to :-).

Best Attorney Ever
Mr Holman is more than a great fathers rights attorney. He's a magician in the court room. Through his counsel and attention to detail we won primary custody and most of savings and sticks back from my ex wife. Mr Holman is a godsend for sure. Now my son can have the stable life he deserves.

Child Support/visitation modification
Knowledgeable, prepared, hardworking, professional. His staff all do a great job (paralegal, clerks, admin etc). Kept me informed, stayed focused on the issues and the law as it pertained to my case to achieve a fair outcome, despite a difficult uncompromising ex-wife, who refused to mediate/negotiate in good faith. My thanks to Stephen Holman and his staff

Look elsewhere
Holman did us more harm than good. We were only ever contacted when they needed more money, we were NEVER kept up to date and our case was drug out for months until we finally reach a “sign this awful agreement or pay even more money”. All this attorney did was file a few papers, our case never even made it to court thanks to Mr. Holman.
