Perceptive North Carolina attorney offers top-notch legal services to clients

When you're facing criminal charges or dealing with a major life change in your family, you need an attorney who will stand up for you and make sure your rights are protected. Since 2004, the Law Office of John M. Holmes, Jr., has been fighting on behalf of North Carolina residents. My clients know me as someone with the ingenuity to craft desirable settlements and the resolve to litigate matters when negotiation fails.

Clever counselor handles cases with skill and compassion

Family law and criminal defense matters require an attorney who understands the personal and financial stresses of these kinds of cases. Clients rely on me because of my:

  • Predictable fee structures — I offer fixed-fee options so the cost of legal services won't add to the stress of your case.
  • Understanding of family issues — The kinds of cases I handle can have profound impacts on my clients' families. That's why tailoring solutions to fit their needs is an essential part of my practice.
  • Courtroom experience — I have over 15 years of experience in North Carolina courtrooms that informs my strategic decisions and the advice I offer my clients.

I work with clients to resolve legal disputes in a manner that addresses personal and family concerns — all without breaking the bank.

Areas of Practice

Astute advocate represents clients in a broad range of family law and criminal defense cases

When picking a lawyer, you want someone who has a track record of success handling the type of case you're dealing with. I've built my practice around: 

  • Family law — I help those dealing with family law disputes by ensuring both spouses reach fair child custody and child support agreements that reflect the best interests of the child. 
  • Criminal defense — I have extensive experience providing criminal defense services to individuals charged with domestic violence and drug crimes such as possession, trafficking, distribution or manufacturing. 
  • DWI — The consequences of a DWI conviction in North Carolina can be serious, but I will mount a vigorous defense on your behalf by challenging the circumstances surrounding your drunk driving arrest. 
  • Traffic Violations — I can also help you avoid steep fines or a license suspension when it comes to other traffic violations

I have been handling these types of cases for over 15 years, and I am confident that I can help you.
