Goal of Holland Law Offices
Our desire is to provide competent legal representation to each client based upon the facts of their case, the law in
Tennessee and any logical or permissible extension of the law in Tennessee. Further, to defend all claims made
against each client within the bounds of the law with the ultimate desire to win the litigation if legally possible or
otherwise to hold any monetary award against the client to the absolute minimum.
My desire is to fulfill the goal with each client.To do so each client must commit to be truthful concerning their
factual situation and to share all relevant information so that we may fully evaluate the situation each client
faces.When clients are fully involved in their representation and interact with their attorney, then and only then,
can I fulfill my commitment competently and appropriately.The proper evaluation of the case usually leads to the
best possible result at the lowest fee possible.Therefore, representation to achieve the best result possible at the
lowest reasonable fee is not only my ultimate desire but my commitment to each client.

We represent personal injury cases ordinarily with a contingency fee arrangement.This simply means that
compensation for our services is taken from the ultimate recovery.The percentage of compensation, if not set by
statute, will be agreed to prior to the rendering of services.
Should the client wish, we will consider an hourly fee arrangement even in a personal injury action but we do not
recommend such a fee arrangement.
In most other cases compensation is based upon an hourly fee arrangement based on work actually done on each
case. In an hourly fee arrangement there will always be a retainer which is applied to the hourly charges before
additional fees are charged.
In any case there will be expenses of litigation.Current Tennessee law requires those expenses to be in addition to
attorney’s fees and will be the expense of the client.
We encourage clients to discuss compensation early in the interview process.
Except in unusual circumstances the initial interview process is free of charge.In certain unique situations an
interview fee may be charged.This will be communicated to the client when the interview is either scheduled or
continued after the client agrees to the charges for said interview.However each client will be given an opportunity
to terminate an interview without any charge for that interview.
