The Estate Planning Attorney

Prior to beginning his career as an attorney, The Estate Planning Law Firm founder, Michael J. Holmes, enlisted in the United States Army, and served as an Armor Crewman on a Main Battle Tank – primarily assigned to the 2nd Infantry Division. After sustaining an injury while serving overseas, Mr. Holmes completed his service in the Army.

Mr. Holmes’ education includes having earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science from San Diego State University and earning a Juris Doctor Degree in Law from Trinity Law School.  Immediately after law school Mr. Holmes passed the California State Bar examination, becoming a lawyer in the State of California.

Mr. Holmes started his legal career as a government prosecutor, working as a Deputy District Attorney, where he prosecuted criminal cases on behalf of The People of The State of California. Mr. Holmes has nearly two decades of legal experience. His clients are fortunate, in that Mr. Holmes has served as both a prosecutor for the government and as a private lawyer throughout the State of California and in Federal Court jurisdictions.  It is these experiences that have exposed him to the reality that we all need to make sure we protect ourselves and assets, avoiding having to litigate issues in Court whenever possible. Also as a result of his tenure working as a lawyer in the criminal justice system, Mr. Holmes realized his desire to work with members of his community to build relationships and practice an area of law that is geared toward building a legacy. For example, recently, Mr. Holmes represented a client that sustained an injury that left him with significant medical issues for life.  After much negotiation and preparation on the part of his legal team, the case settled for approximately $10,000,000.00. Faced with the reality of having medical needs, home health care needs, and other needs, and the inability to work, it was imperative that this client develop a solid estate plan that provided him with the protections and needs that he desired for himself and his family. After meeting with my client, discussing his options and desires, it was with great joy that his estate plan was created and implemented.  It is these types of successes that bring joy to Mr. Holmes on a daily basis. As a result of Mr. Holmes’ hard work and honestly, he has earned a reputation as a respected member of the legal community. Mr. Holmes has received a perfect 10.0 Lawyer Rating from AVVO, he has been the recipient of various awards for his vast experience and has earned the respect of those in the legal community that he works with.
