About Brooks

Learn Brooks’s areas of practice.

After eight years as an associate for a 500+ attorney national law firm, then a downtown Phoenix practice, Brooks Holcomb began his first entrepreneurial undertaking by establishing the boutique law firm of Brooks J. Holcomb, PLLC in 2008. As a corporate attorney, his firm lays the legal groundwork for launching new business ventures as well as servicing the ongoing legal needs of closely-held companies.

In his most recent entrepreneurial endeavor, he co-founded and served as General Counsel for the fast-casual healthy dining concept Original ChopShop Co., which initially had four (4) restaurant locations throughout the Phoenix area. As reported by Business Wire and Yahoo Finance in July 2016, a majority stake of ChopShop was acquired by Hargett Hunter Capital Partners, a North Carolina-based private equity firm, which scales hospitality concepts on a regional then national level. There are currently fifteen (15) locations of ChopShop in multiple states. He also co-founded and continues as a partner in The Montauk and Diego Pops restaurants in Old Town Scottsdale.

Previously, he co-founded Smashboxx, a nightclub in Scottsdale’s entertainment district, which was named “Best Success Story in Scottsdale” by the Arizona Republic and won the award for “Best Management” by the AZ Nightlife Industry Association.

In 2012, Mr. Holcomb was inducted by his peers to join the Arizona Chapter of Entrepreneur’s Organization, which is a global business network of 14,000+ business owners in 196 chapters and 62 different countries whose businesses had total sales over $160B last year.

His numerous articles on business and estate planning have been published by the American Bar Association (in its national publication Probate & Property), the State Bar of Arizona (in the Arizona Attorney magazine), and the Giving Counsel of the Arizona Community Foundation.

Mr. Holcomb received his law degree magna cum laude at the University of Miami and was inducted into the Phi Delta Phi Legal Honor Society and elected into the Society of Bar & Gavel. He earned an LL.M. graduate law degree in Taxation at New York University, and his bachelor’s degree in English and Business from Brigham Young University.

In the philanthropic community, he has served on the boards of directors of the Foundation for Burns and Trauma, Inc., and the Joyner-Walker Foundation, Inc. (a charity established to promote financial literacy among inner city youth). He has also been a member of the Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club, which raises funds for local children’s charities.

Recognition of his community leadership has included being named: (i) Top 50 Pro Bono Attorney of Arizona by the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services and Education; (ii) Guardian Ad Litem Attorney of the Year for Arizona by the Children’s Law Center; and (iii) Attorney of the Month by the Volunteers Lawyer Program as well as the Maricopa County Bar Association. Mr. Holcomb has been recognized in the Phoenix Business Journal, the Maricopa Lawyer, and Scottsdale Health magazine.

He is a proud former member of the Boy Scouts of America and attained the rank of Eagle at the youngest possible age (13). He enjoys international travel, health and fitness, and his beloved Miami Hurricanes football team.

Great Service
Brooks came highly recommended to me by a fellow business owner. I needed legal advice and assistance with an LLC that I have with some partners. Brooks was extremely knowledgeable on all of the related legal matters and prepared the documents that solved our issues and addressed our concerns. He provided quality, timely work at very reasonable rates. I would recommend him to any business owner needing legal assistance with their contracts, agreements and corporate filings.

The man for the job
I have known Brooks Holcomb for over 10 years and he has always had a strong reputation for his legal work. When I needed help with an important legal contract I asked for his assistance. He completed the project exactly as we had jointly discussed. The timing, price and quality were exactly what I expected and overall I was extremely pleased with the services rendered. Over the years, he has always advised me on various projects and his background and credentials combined with him always having my best interests in mind have proved invaluable and much appreciated. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing business advice, contracts, or agreements.

10+ Years of Working Together
As a real estate developer I am constantly in need of strong legal support. Brooks Holcomb was referred to me by a business partner of mine over a decade ago. Over the years, he has assisted me, my companies, and my family with various types of corporate contracts (including LLC Operating Agreements), real estate filings, and estate planning. His background in business counsel, estate planning, and asset protection is especially helpful to me with my family-owned businesses. His work has always been of high quality, reasonably priced and timely delivered. In particular, I appreciate his flat fee billing model which allows me to properly budget for various projects. I give my highest recommendations of Brooks to any new or existing business owner, family, or individual.

Highly recommend Brooks!
I met Brooks Holcomb through an esteemed professional organization and I have come to truly appreciate Brooks’ calm confidence while dealing with stressful situations, his ability to explain complex topics simply, and his integrity to follow through and do what's right. I personally know Brooks to be passionate about business law and helping owner's reach their goals. He has helped me and my businesses for over 8 years and his knowledge and expertise in corporate structuring and contract matters, especially with LLCs, has been invaluable. He is extremely competent in his practice areas and his fees are fair and reasonable. I highly recommend him.

My experience with Brooks over the many years
Brooks is a very organized and timely lawyer. I have been with him for 15+ years now and have had great success with both my rental properties and my estate planning. He is also very good and patient when helping his clients understand what is going on and what the pro's and con's are.

Thank you Brooks!
Easily over a decade ago, I was fortunate to have Brooks take care of my LLC’s. Not only did he make the process easy and simple, but he was efficient! To this day, he continually checks up on me, and makes sure I am considering important aspects of business and personal life. Thank you for always having my best interests in mind. You are appreciated!

Brooks Review
Brooks was extremely helpful and easy to work with. He drafted all of the docs we needed in a timely manner. Brooks is always responds to emails in a timely manner and genuinely wants to help. I'd definitely recommend Brooks and his Firm to anyone needed legal documents or help making your LLC more official. I feel way more comfortable with my operations now that I have legal documents that protect the business, our IP and operations.

Best Lawyer in Town

He truly is a professional who cares about the outcome of his clients business and treats each individual as if his reputation rides on their success. If there was a way to give him 6 stars I would.

Phenomenal Experience
I've been an entrepreneur and self-employed for a little over 11 years now. I have used law firms both big and small. I've been taken advantage of in the past and have been very hesitant to hire a lawyer or law firm based on my past experience. I met Brooks through mutual friends a few years ago and have been working with Brooks for going on three years now. Brooks has always gone above and beyond for my company and me. He has definitely blown me away with how on point he is with the quality of his work, and being very diligent in meeting timelines and staying within budget. If you're looking for a lawyer who will have your back, work within your budget, and blow past your expectations, then Brooks and Holcomb Law will not disappoint you. Very happy to continue working with Brooks and Holcomb Law.

Fantastic lawyer to work with
Brooks has been my go to guy for all corporate filing and compliance work for the last 5 years. As an owner and CEO of a business, I can tell you if you can find someone who you can depend on who picks up your call right away, you tend to stick with them. If you want someone to drive a project fast with no mistakes, Brooks is your man.

Top Notch
Working with Brooks to get all of our estate planning in order was one of the most pleasurable experiences I’ve ever had working with an attorney. He took plenty of time to meet with my wife and me, understand our needs thoroughly (some of which were unique such as ensuring our pets were provided for in the event of our death), and then drafted an entire package of documents that handled every single aspect of what would happen in the event we weren’t able to handle things on our own. I am also an entrepreneur and business owner which had to be taken into account, but that didn’t even phase Brooks. After working with him I recommended to my mom that she use him for the same service and would ABSOLUTELY recommend him to anyone else looking for legal services.

So Glad We Worked Found & Hired Brooks
“Chad and I feel so fortunate to have been introduced to Brooks Holcomb. When working with attorneys, you can often feel confused and underwhelmed by the client experience and delivery of the work paid for. Our experience with Brooks was completely different. He is exceptional at explaining the details of the services he will render and why each service is needed to protect you and the business. He is also timely, communicative, has exceptional attention to detail, and the ability to navigate the difficult legal climate when it comes to both business planning and personal estate matters. We retained him for several projects and each one was handled professionally and with a level of care and attention that clearly demonstrates his expertise and care for his clients. Brooks has and continues to take the dread, uncertainly, and anxiety out of legal work and will be our attorney of choice for all business and personal estate matters in the future.”

He came recommended by my financial adviser, and so far we have been very satisfied. He is fair priced and was just what we needed to help us restructure our LLC.

Horrible and a scammer!
Overpriced and not aware of up to date legal issues. Dissatisfied.
