Holly was the ideal advocate for me while going through a difficult child custody case. She made me feel empowered at every step of the court process and was so knowledgeable about the details, that she nearly predicted the outcome of every court hearing! She was my teacher, my counselor and my supporter which I desperately needed on my side. Without her, I do not believe that I would have had the outcome that I did. She was always available to me, no matter what, she answered all of my questions, without concern for charging me for each and every second. She met with me whenever possible and she made me feel as if we were a part of a team, even though this was my personal issue and the outcome would not directly affect her personally, she never made me feel as if my questions, concerns or fears were unimportant. I will never be able to thank her fully for what she has given me and my family!
Holly assisted me thru my custody/divorce case. She was compassionate, fair, strong & knows the laws inside and out. She helped me to clearly understand my options/choices and the very important long term outcome picture. I completely trusted her. I have since recommended her to others in need of a variety of famil-law advise & they have been very pleased with the legal assistance she ha provided them. I STRONGLY recommend Holly if you are ever in need of family-custody help.
Holly is a powerhouse of information, action steps and professionalism.
I have seen her command the undivided attention of respect of a full courthouse, just by standing up.
She gets the job done, she gets it done fast and she gets it done well.
Believe me, you want her in your court.
Made a bad situation tolerable.

I never thought I'd be getting divorced, and I was sick about the whole thing, but Holly Newman's mediation smoothed out the process and let us concentrate on fairness and doing what was right. She provided us with packages of all the forms and requirements, and over a few meetings, walked us through the details. She always seemed sympathetic to our situation, without taking sides. She took us through the questions that needed to be answered and turned it all into completed forms for us to sign, then presented it all in court, without our having to be there.
I wouldn't wish a divorce on anybody, but our marriage had fallen apart, and Holly eased us past the worst of it so we can get on with our lives.
Holly truly worked hard and straightened out a case that another lawyer had messed up royally. She did the research, the work, fought hard and truly cared. She is honestly the BEST lawyer in Skagit County, Washington state, and the entire U.S. Your money is in great hands when you hire Holly she will work more than what is asked of her and you will probably win your case. This is a real lawyer with heart, honesty, and strength!
