Biography

Janice Holmes is a litigation attorney who practices out of the firm’s Columbia office. Currently, she concentrates her practice on insurance coverage issues, business and commercial litigation, and toxic and mass torts.

Janice regularly advises clients on insurance coverage issues. Specifically, she has advised clients on the existence and scope of coverage for a variety of claims including:

  • Commercial First-Party Policies
  • Professional Liability Policies
  • Insurance Litigation – Declaratory Judgement
  • Insurance Litigation – Bad Faith Claims

Janice’s business and commercial practice experience encompasses a wide range of topics.  Most recently she resolved a matter worth in excess of $1 million on behalf of a commercial client.  The matter involved claims for breach of contract and breach of express and implied warranties, which included noncompliance with federal regulatory labeling requirement.

Janice also has extensive experience in the toxic and mass torts practice area.  She has served as national coordinating counsel for a Fortune 100 company in managing cases involving alleged asbestos exposures in over 30 states.  As coordinating, counsel Janice’s responsibilities included preparing corporate witnesses, developing training programs for local counsel, and working with local counsel to coordinate depositions and trial strategy.

Janice is a forward thinking attorney that places as much emphasis on serving her clients as she does refining her legal skills.  Janice believes that understanding the nature of the client’s business and industry is imperative to providing the highest level of client satisfaction.  Janice states, “Paying attention to the intrinsic details provided by my clients about their organizations allows me to customize a client service plan that will be the most effective way to serve them.”
