Holcomb Law, PLLC
Personal Injury | Serving Tampa, FL
Florida Personal Injury & Employment Law Firm
Specializing In Personal Injury & Employment Law
Holcomb Law is a father and son team of trial lawyers who treat their clients like family. We take only a select number of cases, and pride ourselves in providing clients with personalized attention as they heal through serious injuries or difficulty at work.
Many plaintiffs’ firms advertise heavily and take on voluminous caseloads, and their attorneys do not have the time to provide individualized attention to their clients. Not so with us. At Holcomb Law, we personally connect with our clients from day one, and make sure they get the best possible result for their case, whether that be a fair settlement, or a jury verdict.
While many firms are hesitant to take a case to trial, we have tried over a hundred jury trials. We are confident to take any case to trial, and we will not take a case if we are not willing to take that case all the way to verdict.
We have worked at large defense firms, and we understand how defense lawyers and their corporate clients think, operate, and value cases. We are prepared to take on any large firm, corporation, or defendant no matter how big they are. Our goal is to provide our clients with the best possible service and results. It is a pleasure for us to consult with anyone, free of charge, and to do our part to help our clients heal in their time of need.
