“I love the business of practicing law. And I’m proud of the way we run GrahamHollis. Clients don’t want to pay for their attorney’s polished granite and mahogany décor. We’ve conscientiously created a modest and comfortable environment that shows we’re focused on our clients and their cases – not on how our offices look.”
