Outstanding character and genuine care!
Kevin Holmes made a very difficult time in my life into a very positive and healing time! When dealing with such a personal issue as child custody, you want someone who believes in your case and treats it as if it was their own! That's exactly how Kevin Holmes made me and my family feel! He was always very professional and thorough. And he always made himself available to me if I had any questions or concerns. My son and I are forever grateful to you! THANK YOU!!

Professional, confident and gets the job done!
I've hired Kevin for several cases and he was quick, attentive and very knowledgeable. I'm not very good with paperwork or legal issues and he took the lead and made everything easy to understand for me. In one instance no one was taking me and my wife seriously for months, once Kevin got involved they took us seriously and things played out in our favor within a couple of days! If you're looking for a lawyer who doesn't mess around and goes above and beyond in your case then I highly recommend Kevin.

Knowledgeable and Attentive
I hired Kevin to write up DRO's for my divorce. He was very knowledgeable and anytime I ever had a question he was always quick to respond. Even when asking questions not pertaining to the paperwork, but how to handle a certain situations within my divorce he was very helpful.

Custody Issues
Kevin Holmes was our attorney in a custody/guardianship issue. Never having dealt with this type of issue, I had no idea where to begin to handle this type of situation. Kevin knew exactly what to do and kept me informed all along the way. Kevin made a very stressful situation turn into a calm and well managed situation. Our case turned out in our favor due to his dilegent work in our case. I would recommend his office for any of your legal situations.

Mr.Holmes was very knowledgable and was very good at his job. He kept me informed and was able to help me greatly in more ways than one. I will definitely keep him as a private attorney. He is trustworthy and aggressive in court. I trust him to handle all of the legal services I need from now on. I wouldn't recommend anyone else. If you want an excellent attorney that genuinely cares and is good at hat he does then Kevin Holmes is is who you need to represent you.

Each time we went to court Kevin was well read and completely prepared for what we were facing. Don't hesitate to use Kevin for your legal needs. He and his staff will do their best to keep your stress to a minimum and work hard to provide the outcome you desire.

Gets the job done
Very up front with options. We did not have to go to court, maintained custody, and are satisfied. Kevin is very pleasant and professional. Easy access to talk with him by e-mail or phone. I have no hesitancy recommending him to friends and family.

Kevin Holmes Review
I would strongly recommend Atty Holmes for any counsel that you might need. Kevin has provided several types of services from Personal and Business needs. Always prompt and courteous in his response, it is what you need when receiving legal counsel. Services are always reasonably priced and well within expectation.
