HDA Lawyers was formed by the merger of two long established law firms: John Holmes Law Office (established in 1995) and Nola Dangen & Associates (established in 1996).

The principals of those firms, John Holmes and Nola Dangen, shared a commitment to provision of personal attention and a high standard of professionalism to their clients’ affairs across a broad range of commercial and private client services.

Those professional values remain embodied in the culture of HDA Lawyers. Both John and Nola trained and practised in a larger firm environment, in the same firm, before deciding that they could better serve their clients’ needs (and enjoy greater professional satisfaction and freedom) in a more personal practice environment. The firm has retained those advantages, while continuing to maintain a high standard of practice management and up to date technology.
