Holly is the best!
Holly Pederson is a wonderful woman and an amazing attorney to work with. If you put your trust into her to help with your legal troubles she will not let you down. As someone who has never had to hire legal help before it was such a relief to have found her. Holly guided me through how the court system works, filed all paperwork and took care of everything in a quick manner. She stayed in contact regularly through the process and kept me informed on what was happening every day. Holly was positive and supportive but also was honest with my options of how to handle my case in Chelan County. Because of her my record is still clean. I can't recommend her enough, thank you so much Holly!

Traffic Infraction Cleared
Holly is very easy to get a hold of and easy to talk to. She gave me all my options and suggested the best ones. I had a traffic infraction that we contested and she had it completely erased from my record. I highly recommend hiring Holly to represent you.

Excellent Legal Advice and Great Communication
After having difficulties with previous counsel, we called Holly at the eleventh hour prior to a court date we needed representation for. Holly calmly helped us navigate the potential risks and outcomes for pursuing the matter further in court, things we did not receive from our first counselor. She was so generous with her time after business hours, she gave us over an hour gratis to help us find the right direction. She was incredibly fast in her written correspondence and readily available by phone. Holly, we can't thank you enough for sacrificing time outside of your work day to help us with our legal issue. I highly recommend her for legal defense - she has great insight into the court system and truly has the best interests of her clients at heart.

Speeding Ticket in Leavenworth
I hired Holly to represent me at traffic court for a small speeding violation in Chelan county. She was not expecting to be able to get the violation completely dropped, but she ended up getting it dropped anyway! So happy to work with Holly, she was fast to deal with and easy to work with including a phone consultation and representation in court. Thanks Holly!!

Knowledgeable, Reliable, & Genuine
Holly Pederson is the most personable and genuine lawyer I have worked with . She takes the time to make sure your concerns are listened to and will help guide you through the legal process with honest suggestions. Holly is extremely reasonable in cost compared to most lawyers and performs at a level higher then her colleagues in the Valley. Holly is very knowledgable as a lawyer and she will put the work in to fight for you. I have recommended Holly to two of my personal acquaintances already and they were extremely pleased! Holly is extremely knowledgable and a reliable choice for a lawyer, would highly recommend!

25 over to non-moving violation
Holly is the best! I was caught going 25 over and she was able to get it dropped to a non-moving violation. Holly was very responsive thorough out the whole process and knew exactly what to do. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend holly or call her again for any needs I might have.

Best Attorney
While on vacation my car was totalled and to top it off I got a traffic citation! Holly gave me a free phone consultation and was very quick to help me with this matter. I found her to be experienced, responsive, knowledgable and honest. While working with Holly, I felt as though my situation was in trustworthy hands, and she did not steer me wrong. I would highly recommend Holly to anyone seeking legal representation that is fair, honest and will keep your best interest and unique needs at heart. And if your wondering about the outcome........dismissed!
