Attorney Holt has been academically and professionally involved in some aspect of mediation and alternative dispute resolution for over 15 years. He began mediating for a non-profit which supported the facilitation of victim and offender dialogue in criminal court cases in the Waterbury and Bridgeport Geographic Area courts. For the next 7 years he mediated, facilitated and evaluated hundreds of contested financial, property and child custody disputes as a State of Connecticut Judicial Branch appointed Family Relations Counselor in the New Haven Superior Court.
In 2013 he left his position within the Judicial Branch and ventured out into private legal practice for a rapidly expanding insurance policy holder litigation law firm. Here, in addition to traditional litigation and advising companies and insurance brokers about appropriate corporate risk transfer, he also counseled and represented some of the nation’s largest construction companies through the successful mediation of multimillion-dollar insurance coverage disputes; disputes involving complex overlapping contractual obligations as well as potential multiparty liability payment scenarios.
Most recently Attorney Holt has started his own firm, Holt Law LLC, based in Woodbridge. His new practice is focused primarily on co-parenting coordination, collaborative family law, mediation and broader dispute resolution pursuits.
