Hard-Working, Dedicated Attorney Who Actually Listened to My Concerns and Resolved My Issued with Former Employer
I hired Ms. Holman to handle settlement negotiations for a discrimination/retaliation matter against my former employer, who even when shown several different forms of actual evidence to prove my claims, refused to accept responsibility or culpability. Because my former employer is a national firm with many resources, they insisted that I settle my claims with them or take them to court. Knowing that most people don't have the financial resources to out lawyer or out finance them, it was clear that they had mastered the art of strong-arming abused and bullied employees into settling for a token amount in order to get them off the hook. Despite my claim of discrimination and retaliation, or the sheer number of prior employees who suffered the same fate, the unfair and damaging treatment of all employees is of absolutely no concern to this firm, and they refuse to fairly investigate the facts. Therefore, administrators or managers are not held accountable for their actions, and they will stop at nothing in order to cover up their behavior (including false accusations with no supporting documentation or modifying/altering employee records). After a two year battle, I chose to move on and asked Ms. Holman to work with my former employer to finalize the settlement. I gave her a very short window of time to try to negotiate further with a company whose practice was to throw out a very small number, draft an agreement that protects them only, and then announce that there would be no further negotiations. Another words, take it and like it! Ms. Holman was able to familiarize herself with my case overnight, even though it was somewhat complicated, place a call to my former employer and not only convince them to modify the settlement agreement to protect my interests, but increase my settlement amount. What I appreciated about this attorney that completely impressed me and took some of the pain and frustration away, was that she actually listened to me and my view of the facts of the case. She did not interrupt me with can'ts and costs, or tell me why my claims would fail. She did not treat me as the little guy that she was too important to represent, or use her listening filters to cut me off after a few minutes if she felt my case wasn't lucrative enough for her high standards. I have worked in the legal field for 25 years, but am not familiar with employment law, and have never had a case of my own that required attorney representation. The biggest frustration I have had is that most employment lawyers represent the employers, most don't care about anything but the money, and nearly all don't even bother returning your call. There are no employee advocates or resources preventing big companies or firms from subjecting employees to any type of harassment or unfair labor practice they choose, because they know they won't be held accountable. It is a travesty and huge disservice to the workforce throughout the country. In my view, in addition to the desire to make a lot of money, an attorney should have the desire to help the common man who does not have the knowledge or resources to help himself, and looks to that attorney for advice or protection under the law. The only shining light I found throughout this whole ordeal was Ms. Holman, because she had more than a law degree, listened and understood what was important to me. She had enough empathy and compassion to put herself in my place, and a desire to offer whatever help she could. Most importantly, and with all of that in mind, she found a way to make me feel like I lost the battle, but won the war.

Call this one first.
Ms. Holman answered my call promptly and was exceptionally helpful and pleasant. I recommend calling her for any of your employment law needs in Nevada.

A Positive Experience
Under extreme time sensitive conditions, and unlike every other lawyer whom I contacted, Kristina was able to take my call and schedule my consultation for the same day. Immediately, I hired Mrs. Holman to represent me and to bring forth my claims against my former employer. She worked diligently to help me settle my matters in a timely manner and in doing so, showing the utmost compassion and understanding to my situation both from a professional and a personal perspective. Her legal advise guided me in all the right direction, and I could not be any happier for the way my case turned out.

I hired Kristina. Wasted time.
I hired Attorney Kristina Holmes for my employment law case. Kristina gave me false hope just to get me to hire her. She said she will get me back my job with all the back pay, which was around $100,000. My case was time sensitive as it had a 90 day EEOC timeframe to file a lawsuit, per the EEOC right to sue letter. After I hired Kristina, she wrote one letter to the employer, then urged me to take a $2000 settlement in lie of a lawsuit. Naturally, I declined because the job was a $100,000. a year job. She also allowed my right to sue letter expire so I could not file the lawsuit. This attorney Kristina Holmes ruined my case.

Horrible experience
I spoke to her on the phone a couple of times before going to her office. I paid $250 for the initial consultation, which took about 30 minutes. During that time we were interrupted twice from the landlord showing the office. She was quite rude and had no interest except for my money. That was $250 waste. It would be wise to try someone else. Good luck.
