People that work here

Behind the scenes at the firm:

This is a Team

We work as a team (not a “family” which corporate America loves to say). Everyone has their role and they take ownership over their work. Because we run a good business, our attorneys are practicing LAW, not doing administrative work. Other attorneys, policy-makers, ancillary businesses and learning institutions regularly connect with us as thought leaders in our practice areas (whom we welcome with open *digital* arms).

We heavily invest in our team and work culture to deliver the best legal services and experience to you. In order to be the best boutique health law firm, we have built an A-team. We don’t compete on price, but we do compete on value. 

We are organized, efficient, remote, agile, Minnesota-nice and entrepreneurial. But be careful – if you mistreat ANY member on our team (not just the attorneys) we may discharge you as a client. Every person holds equal value on our team regardless of their title or pay. You’ll likely notice our team grow as we are together if you work with us long enough!

We are at the intersection of where authentic personality meets professionalism. We laugh. We swear. Some of us are parents. We struggle. We win. We are human (until the AI robots take over).

The Firm

Leverage Technology

We leverage modern technology (including AI) to keep costs down. Our firm is 100% paperless, backed up and encrypted remotely. We can safely share every single document in your case with you electronically. You will receive invoices electronically and you can pay them securely online via credit card or secure ACH transfer.

Value Billing

The traditional hourly billing model does not reward creating value for the client.  We practice law differently.  We avoid hourly billing in order to have predictable bills and “skin the game”. We will discuss your goals at our first meeting. We will base our fee on meeting your goals, ideally with a predictable flat fee that we agree is equal to the value of our services.

v

Speak Plain English

We speak plain English, not legalese.  We use analogies, drawings, and extra time in person to clearly explain what we are doing.  We encourage open communication at all times.  We believe in transparent legal work.

Prevent - Not React

We focus on front-end legal planning rather than back-end costly “clean-up” litigation.  Whether a personal or business manner, our approach is to save you money by anticipating what could go wrong and how we can address those potential issues.  This saves you money, time and anxiety.

Modern Approach

We are leading the cutting edge of what it means to be a successful law firm. We experiment with doing things different and we are likely not like any other law firm or attorney you’ve worked with before. We evolve with technology and the modern practice of law. 

Focused

We are not “jack of all trades” or “whatever comes in the door” attorneys.  We master limited practice areas instead of dabbling in areas of law simply to increase revenue. Our biggest asset is our reputations.  If your case is outside of our practice areas, we will happily try to refer you to an attorney we trust.

What’s our WHY?

To build a better US healthcare system

The US Healthcare system (“Big Healthcare”) is plagued with issues. The issues have been politicized, monetized and criticized without any real change or impact.  We are convinced bringing more small healthcare providers into the system will have a positive impact. We launch these healthcare businesses on a daily basis and invest in their growth.  We are talking about the small-business entrepreneurs that America is built upon. A small healthcare provider knows your name, they care, and they are invested in your success. 

I empower new businesses, hold our current system accountable, and create space for underserved communities. – Founder + Managing Attorney David (“DJ”) Holt

Our social services agency has worked with Holt Law for many years and we have appreciated all that Holt Law's team has done to assist us! I have had wonderful experiences specifically working with Courtney and Jamie on tasks such as, our ARMHS recertification, auditing our case files to ensure we are in compliance, applying for new home and community based services, understanding the intricacies of Moving Home Minnesota (MHM), etc. Courtney and Jamie are extremely prompt in replying to many, if not all of my questions and/or concerns. They have also helped provide general counsel and additional guidance on other complex issues. Our agency feels supported by Holt Law and would recommend their agency to others in the social services field.
