Not Just A Lawyer
Jim Holliman is not just a lawyer to help you with your legal issues, but he truly treats you with kindness and sincerity as would a dear friend. I would go so far as to say he is like family. He kept all advisements and information on a level that could be easily understood, because we all know that the law can be quite complicated! Thank you, Jim, for all what you do for your clients and friends.

Excellent Attorney
Although my association with Mr Holliman came about because of unpleasant circumstances(divorce) he proved to be more than my representing attorney, and became a good friend in the process. Mr. Holliman explored all facts concerned with the situation, provided sound legal advice, kept me informed, and represented me well in the courtroom. I could not have asked for better representation, and I would recommend him without reservation.
