Michael J. Holmes

Santa Ana Criminal Defense Lawyer

undefined

Prior to becoming an attorney, Mr. Holmes proudly served in the United States Army. After serving overseas for a period of time, Mr. Holmes returned to California and subsequently entered law school.

While in law school, Mr. Holmes not only served as editor-in-chief of the school’s law review, but he also served as an orator on numerous National Moot Court Competitions. Immediately after law school, Mr. Holmes passed the California State Bar and accepted a position as a Deputy District Attorney in Southern California.

While serving as a prosecutor, Mr. Holmes handled an extensive number of misdemeanor and felony criminal cases, as well as appeals. He successfully conducted a significant number of jury trials, handled felony preliminary hearings, conducted hearings/motions relating to various legal issues, and developed a strong understanding of how to be successful in the area of criminal law.

After serving as a deputy district attorney, Mr. Holmes left the office to become an effective criminal defense attorney, and he eventually extended his practice to include injury cases and the Department of Veterans Affairs cases.

Mr. Holmes credits much of his success to the fact that he was able to find out how the various district attorney offices evaluate cases, what issues they look for when prosecuting cases, and what issues jurors focus on when in a jury trial.

As a criminal defense attorney, Mr. Holmes successfully defends clients facing charges ranging from lower-level misdemeanor offenses all the way up to major felony cases. His accomplishments include obtaining not-guilty verdicts on charges ranging from first-degree murder all the way down to minor theft charges.

As a Certified Department of Veterans Affairs Attorney, Mr. Holmes also proudly represents those who serve, or have served, our country in the United States Military.
