I was referred to Mr. Holmes when my former spouse decided to get nasty and bring in DCFS to the case. My then-current attorney was the one who actually told me I had to hire Mr. Holmes because he was considered "the best" in the greater Los Angeles area. I gladly signed up and paid the retainer. I realize that no attorney can control the litigation or guarantee an outcome, and I was not expecting a miracle. And frankly, the conduct of my ex is what drove most of the litigation and the expense. But in the end, Mr. Holmes helped me craft a solution that made sense for myself, my ex, and our children. I always found Mr. Holmes to be available, incredibly knowledgeable, so very well respected by the judge in the our case, and unlike most attorneys I know, he did not "churn" the file. In fact at times, I felt like he did not bill me enough. I would hire him again if the need arose though I sure hope I never end up in family court ever again.

Divorce is an unpleasant reality for many and I was a party in a ridiculous and litigious divorce case. Don’t make the mistake I initially made settling for mediocre legal representation. I worked in the legal field for over 15 years and still made the wrong choice initially until I met Mr. Holmes. My ex is an attorney. I needed the best in the in the business. I will admit that there were times I didn't always agree with Mr. Holmes but I listened to him and trusted his advice. Now that the trial is over I’m so glad I did. It was evident at every hearing and certainly at trial how Mr. Holmes earned his excellent reputation as a respected litigator and trial attorney. If you are looking for an attorney that judges and other lawyers respect, call Robert Holmes. Although my case is not completely over, I would highly recommend him without hesitation.
