Yolo County Courthouse Placer County Courthouse Federal Courthouse – Sacramento


“Mr. Holbus was very knowledgeable and diligent in going over all the scenarios that could come from my charges. The police took all of my firearms.  Not only did John get my charges dismissed, but he made sure that my firearms would be returned to me and not destroyed.”

“The jury deliberated for only 20 minutes. When the foreman read, ‘not guilty on all charges.’ I was in shock and didn’t know what to do. I asked Mr. Holbus,’What does this mean?’ He looked over at me and said, ‘why are you still sitting here, go home’ “.

“I wasn’t able to hunt for 14 years. Thanks to Mr. Holbus I am able to go hunting with my son for the first time ever this October. I highly recommend Mr. Holbus as an excellent firearm attorney”

“Mr. Holbus was honest and did what he said he would. I never once got feeling like I was being sold a bag of goods like I have with some other lawyers I had dealt with. I highly recommend John Holbus for anyone looking for a criminal defense lawyer.”
