I am a physician and was hurt in a car wreck. Jim Holland is an excellent personal injury lawyer who gave me candid and practical advice on how to best protect my legal rights. Jim understands the medicine underlying each of his clients' personal injury claims, and is a strong and persistent advocate. He and I spent countless hours on the phone discussing not only my case, but my life and any ways he could assist me. He is truly empathetic and fights for his clients out of genuine caring and kindness. I cannot speak highly enough of Jim's abilities in this area and those in real need of a great personal injury lawyer absolutely owe it to themselves and their families to meet with Jim first. I would certainly contact Jim with any needs in the future and would whole-heartedly recommend him to anyone.

Working with Jim was an eye opening experience in dealing with personal injury lawyers... Following a hit and run incident on my bicycle, I worked with another lawyer briefly, who seemed more interested how bad my injuries were than how to ensure my case was handled properly. I switched to work with Jim and his focus instantly became about ensuring we worked towards the best solution possible while moving methodically through the legal process. Jim kept me in the loop along the way and provided sound legal opinions. While no one wants to deal with a personal injury lawyer because it usually means bad things happened, the process with Jim went as smoothly as anyone could ever ask and I would highly recommend him if you are in need of legal counsel.

I was seriously injured in a roll over car accident and had several previous lawyers who were unable to resolve my case and in fact lost my right to compensation. Jim took over the legal malpractice case and from the moment he got on board he finally got me to a doctor who was able to figure out what was wrong with my shoulder (it had been years and nobody had been able to tell me what was going on), he also gave me a roadmap to my legal recovery. Jim skillfully worked my legal malpractice and automobile claims through the litigation process and produced an excellent result without having to go to trial. He cares deeply about his clients and his legal skill, ability, and judgment are beyond compare. Even more importantly, he’s a great human being and those with catastrophic injuries or who have lost loved ones would be lucky to have Jim Holland take their case. I cannot envision my most serious personal injury case in any more capable hands.

I had the pleasure of going to Willamette Law School with Jim Holland, and working with him at the prosecutors office prior to him working in private practice. Jim has great work ethic, a good moral compass, and compassion.
