What People Say About Our Firm


I was facing some serious jail time. My husband and I reached out to Attorney Joe Hollomon. This attorney, I am not only giving him 5 stars, I am giving him 100. He went to work for me and did not stop until he received great results for me. This man, and his firm are awesome, and I am shouting to the mountain top, and to whomever will listen to hire this attorney. I am a true witness to what he can do for you. He is worth every penny. If I am to get into any more legal trouble, he will be the one that will take my case, but I will not be getting into any more trouble. I do not want to disappoint him, or myself. I am free, and it is all because of his hard work and determination. He is an awesome attorney and there are no words in the English dictionary to let him know how much I truly appreciate him and his firm. If he ever needs me, no question ask, I am there. I have read a few of these reviews, I do not understand some of the comments that was made. If any one is put into his shoes, they will know that dealing with the judicial system is very hectic and time consuming. Yes, I have made calls to him and did not received a call right back, I was patient. When you do not hear from him, that is a great sign. He is working for you. Allow him his time, I promise you, you will receive the result(s) you are looking for. He was great to me and my husband.

Thank you again, Attorney Holloman. You are the best.

I retained this firm to handle a minor drug charge in a rural Mississippi county. All my charges were dropped, which was a better outcome than the non-adjudication offered by other firms. I paid a very fair price; other firms gave quotes $1000 higher but I felt comfortable with this firm and would absolutely retain them again if needed. I also enjoyed meeting Mr. Hollomon; he was professional and personable, and

I could tell that he was experienced and well-connected in Mississippi.

This attorney worked hard on my case and it got thrown out of court.

He’s the best lawyer in Mississippi.

I had a personal matter and hired attorney Hollomon. He was truthful and upfront about the seriousness of my case. It was a long process but in the end I got the best outcome that I could have ever gotten. If it weren’t for attorney Hollomon I don’t know where I would be. Everything he told me was the truth and his knowledge was everything to my case.

I’m giving him the very best rating because he was the very best.

Joe Hollomon is an excellent attorney. He listened to my case and made me feel better and ultimately got my case dismissed for lack of evidence. I believe his background helped him to do this because he was a district attorney. I will gladly recommend him to anyone who needs a

highly qualified lawyer.

I came to Mr. Hollomon because he was highly recommended and I am so glad I did. I was very impressed with his knowledge of my case law and the personable experience I had with him.

He kept me informed on the progress and always returned my calls when I needed him.

I can’t say enough good about him. He finished my case and I feel like I got my life back.
