Jaimee C. Holmes
Law Office of Jaimee C. McDowell
As a one-person law firm based in Waldorf, Jaimee Holmes juggles a variety of legal cases, everything from criminal cases to family matters such as custody and divorce to personal injury and wills.
As someone committed to changing her community, she spends a lot of time focusing on youth. She represents young people charged with crimes or dealing with foster care issues. And, in her work with Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, a national sorority geared toward young people, she talks to young people about their rights when dealing with the police and what it means to be a lawyer or judge.
“Running a successful law practice is a professional accomplishment,” said the 2011 graduate of Florida Coastal School of Law, in Jacksonville, Florida. “I started my practice right after law school; I’ve never worked for anyone. To still be in business and continuing to grow is an achievement.”
She added: “At the end of the day I want to look back on my life and know that I have helped people, that I have made an impact on my community. That is what drives me each day.”
