Highly recommended labor lawyer
Got to talk to Jeff regarding a potential case against my ex-boss. Jeff gave great advice on how to deal with the problem I have with my employer - who refused to give me the raise that he promised. He explained to me what my legal options are. He was responsive and answered my call right away. I highly recommend him if you're looking for a labor attorney in California.

An Excellent Attorney and Person
Mr. Holmes helped me so much when I was completely lost about how to handle my situation. He not only educated me on all of the law-related terminology and things that I did not understand, but he also provided me with information on how to move forward and advised me on what to do next. Mr. Holmes is an outstanding attorney, but he is also just a genuinely kind man. Even after he chose not to represent me, he contacted me days later just to see how things were going and to offer me some more advice! I would highly recommend Mr. Holmes because he truly cares about his clients!

Highly Recommend. Hands down. Trustworthy. Informative
I had the pleasure of finding Jeff when I was lost and confused as to what to do, how to do it and where to begin unraveling my seemingly impossible case. Out of any attorney I have met or spoken to, I can tell you that Jeff was extremely knowledgeable, thorough, honest, has a realistic outlook, quick minded with the ability to see from all perspective, (which is excellent for mediating or to represent in trial, in my book). I personally love an attorney who is frank with me as opposed to being led down the “garden path” so I definitely appreciated him. He is strategic in work and only take on cases he truly believes in. He is detail oriented and quick to respond. If you’re seeking someone to represent you for such an important case— I highly recommend Jeff Holmes as your attorney.

Forget the attorney part. An excellent human being he is
I talked to him for a bit, and though he couldn't take my case I came away with the impression he is a top class person in every regard!
Response from Jeff Holmes July 21, 2021
Thanks, Joe, for the very thoughtful review. Even though I'm very selective as to the cases we take on, I try to take the time to listen to every caller. And, when I can, to give the callers advice as to their options. Again, many thanks. Jeff

10 out of 10!! During the first month of the Coronavirus Pandemic Jeff......
Holmes answered my phone call on the first attempt. He spent several minutes talking to me about my situation and gave me great priceless advice. I contacted him to tell him I was laid off and whether or not I had a case. He professionally listened to me on the spot and advised me on what to do next. I offered to pay for his time and he respectfully said, "Thank you but I love what I do and I am unemployed, and that he believes in good karma". I was in a state of awe when I heard that from Jeff. If you need a Labor Law Attorney/Employment Attorney, Jeff Holmes is your counselor! I have zero doubt about that! I will refer him and if need be for any reason, I will hire/retain him down the line. He is simply, the BEST!

Thank you so much. Your kindness really, really means a lot to me. Especially right now, when I’m getting so many calls from unemployed people in trouble. I wish you and your family all of the best. And stay safe!

Very helpful labor lawyer
I called Jeff to consult regarding a wrongful termination case. Jeff was very accommodating and really helpful. I had a lot of questions and he patiently answered each one of them. You can really tell that he cares about his clients because he asked questions and clarifications. It was really easy to reach Jeff. I left a message late at night (didn't want to wake him up) and he called back two minutes after. Definitely recommend Jeff if you're looking for a labor lawyer to assist you.
