Like many of you, I ain’t from around these parts…! I was stationed here as a Navy pilot, and when I retired, I became a Virginia resident. I think life is good in Hampton Roads. My own small hometown in Kansas has now grown to a bustling population of 331, but it was less urban in my youth! My Midwestern family has been farmers and blue collar workers for as far back as we know. I grew up in farm houses without indoor plumbing. Yep, so imagine where the “bathroom” was! (Winters were cold; that’s where I got my speed!) We had party line phones early on. No A/C. Then we moved to into a trailer house “in town.”
I was born into a wonderful consortium of huge Irish, Catholic families on the West Side of Cleveland, Ohio. Although I am the oldest of merely three children, my mom was one of ten, and hers was a relatively small family in that neighborhood. So we were constantly surrounded by aunts, uncles, and cousins—lots of cousins!
Growing up, we not only knew everybody, but as my best friend would often remark when we went out and I would have to stop to talk to everybody we ran into, we were somehow related to everybody in town!
Becoming a lawyer was my childhood dream, and I’m happy to report that years of practice have not dulled my passion! I consider it an absolute privilege to represent my Clients and to meet people “where they’re at”. My main practice is family and domestic relations law, and I know just how difficult it is to walk through a divorce, custody battle, or a protective order hearing. Because I understand these unique personal challenges and emotional battles, I consider it my responsibility to operate as a light in a dark place. As a family law lawyer and certified mediator, I aim to help husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, family members and parents…
I am a Virginia native, born in Newport News and raised in Seaford. I graduated from York High School before earning my Bachelor’s in Justice Studies and Writing, Rhetoric, and Technical Communications and my Master’s in Writing, Rhetoric, and Technical Communications from James Madison University. I received my Juris Doctor at Liberty University with a concentration in Family Law. I love music (listening, not playing), sports, and doing things with friends. I am a proud member of Theta Chi Fraternity. I am excited to join the Holcomb Law team and work for the people of this great area.
Hi, I’m Woo and I’m excited to be a part of the Holcomb team. I’ve been practicing law for the past 4 years focusing mostly on criminal and personal injury law. I attended Mercer School of Law and Radford University for my undergraduate degree in history.
I proudly served in the United States Army as a Crypto Linguist for 6 years from 1999 to 2005. During my time in service, I spent 15 months deployed to Iraq for Operation Iraqi Freedom from 2003 to 2004.
I grew up in Newport News graduating from Denbigh High School.
Hi there. My name is C. Carter Allen. Some of you may be familiar with me as I graduated from Regent University School of Law in 2008; and have been in practice in the Hampton Roads area ever since. Now, after 10 years of successfully flying solo, I have been welcomed in to the Holcomb Law tribe.
I grew up in the heartland of America, the state of Iowa, but have called Hampton Roads home since Thanksgiving Day of 1992. I currently live in Hampton with my wife, Jessica, 260 pounds worth of two dogs, and three odd cats.
I finished law school at the Marshall-Wythe College of Law at William and Mary in 2007, and began my legal career as a law clerk for the Hon. Richard B. Potter in the Prince William County Circuit Court. After practicing family law and criminal defense in northern Virginia for eleven years, I decided to return home to Hampton Roads and am happy to return to the full-time practice of family law after serving as a prosecutor for the City of Portsmouth.
In my free time, I enjoy watching my alma mater, Northwestern University, in football and basketball.
