Feedback from some of Adam Holland’s clients

Mr. Holland assisted me with a charge of illegal street racing. He was professional and courteous. He went above and beyond in helping me to prepare for the trial.  Through his cross examination he was able to unravel the Police case, resulting in the dismissal of all charges before I even had to give evidence. I would highly recommend anyone in a similar situation to use this true professional.

Adam helped me through a really difficult time when I had got into trouble with the law and had absolutely no idea what to do. His communication was excellent and he was very reassuring that he would work above and beyond to achieve the best possible outcome. His presence in court made an extremely stressful day much easier and the discharge without conviction he had confidently predicted from the very start was exactly how the case ended. I would highly recommend Adam to anybody needing legal assistance.

SM - domestic violence charges

I was only 17 years old when I got charged. Adam helped me through my court case in a way where he seemed to really care about me personally. He took the time to get to know me and to understand where I was coming from. He was able to present that to the Court and he kept me out of prison. I am really thankful for everything he has done for me.

TM - serious violence charges

I would like to thank Adam Holland. I was facing a charge of rape by a family member that was not true. I was fearful, but Adam helped me and kept me on bail despite several breaches. I could tell that Adam put everything into defending me and he believed in me. I am so relieved and recommend Adam to anyone facing a serious sex-related charge.

My wife and I were lucky enough to meet Adam during an incredibly stressful time in our lives. Adam was able to get to the heart of my legal issues quickly and then provide clear advice on my options. He was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had and he was able to successfully argue for a result where I did not receive a criminal conviction on my record. Thank you so much Adam.
