Kelly LaRue

larue-kelly-color-3294I’m Kelly and I have been part of the Holcomb Law family for over 8 years now. I have several jobs here at the firm: Marketing Director, Office Manager, and Paralegal. I truly believe in our mission and what we stand for here and that makes it such a rewarding place to be.

A little bit about me: I grew up in Franklin, Virginia. I graduated from Christopher Newport University and continued on to graduate school at Longwood University where I got my masters in Criminal Justice. Before joining Holcomb Law, I worked for the Division of Child Support Enforcement for 4 years.

I live in Poquoson with my husband, son, dog, and cat. Together, we enjoy watching movies, spending time with our friends, and planning trips to Disney World.

I have close to six years’ experience as a paralegal and legal assistant which has provided me with exposure to many different areas of law. I studied Criminal Justice at Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania and later earned my Paralegal Certificate. I’m thrilled to be bringing my knowledge to Holcomb Law!

A little about me: I was born and raised in New Jersey but have lived throughout the country, most recently moving from Washington state to Virginia – getting back to my east coast roots!

Dayna Omary

Dayna Omary, ParalegalHello! My name is Dayna, I am paralegal here at Holcomb Law. I began my journey as a Family Law Paralegal in Fairfax, Virginia in 1993. I would not choose a different area of law to work in. My passion is helping families and individuals and navigating them through the legal process, during some of the most difficult and trying times in their lives while striving to help them obtain the best result possible.

I am a Colorado native, raised at the base of the foothills. I am a Mom to four amazing children and “Lolli” to a spunky and energetic grandson. I love spending time with family, lounging in the pool, sitting around the firepit; and county living since my transition from the hustle and bustle of Northern Virginia. To unwind, decompress and release stress, I take long rides down country roads, or any road, on my Harley.


Jess Allen

When I’m not working (which is rare), I love spending time with my husband and our 4 children. I also enjoy cooking with my husband, watching sports, and painting. I’m excited to be a part of the Holcomb Law team and am happy to be able to help our clients with whatever issue they may be facing.


Chandler Holcomb

Chandler Holcomb, Legal AssistantHello, my name is Chandler! I work here at Holcomb Law as a Legal Assistant currently, with aspirations of completing law school in the upcoming years. I went to Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and graduated in 2018 with a degree in Old Testament and Judaic-Christian Studies. Shortly afterwards, I launched to the missions field in Lima, Perú, and recently returned in June of 2020.

I have had a wonderful transition back to living stateside, and look forward to going back to school next fall to study law. I am excited to study this great profession and see where a career in law can take me. When I am not studying or working, I enjoy just about any sport, adventures with friends, and joyrides on my Harley.

I have been a York County resident my entire life and graduated from York High School. I have two children who are Tabb Tigers, but I am a York Falcon at heart!

When I’m not at work, I’m taking care of my amazing son, Memphis! He is a total boy, so he’s constantly keeping me on my toes outdoors, whether it’s to baseball games, or to Busch Gardens to ride roller coasters! I also enjoy capturing family memories as a photographer in my free time.
