"Mr. Thad Hollis has been of great assistance to members of the Filipino community who had employment issues on the island. A great many of them related to labour and immigration matters which Mr. Hollis had adeptly resolved with sensitivity and care. As officers of the Filipino Association, we would normally refer complex labour matters to Mr. Hollis due to his vast experience in arbitration and mediation with employers and the Labour Department. I have personally witnessed a mediation where Mr. Hollis successfully represented and assisted a Filipino worker with his employment wages. The mediation resulted in both employee and employer satisfied with the resolution of their case. Aside from representing Filipino workers, he has also provided us numerous sound advice with regard to employment matters. In this regard, the Filipino Association and its members highly value all the contributions that Mr. Hollis has provided to our members and the rest of the Filipino community on the island."

"Thad Hollis was very instrumental in assisting me with a matter that required legal consultation and ultimately mediation. This is what I wanted from the onset because I felt the need to resolve my matter in a holistic way. I found him to be professional, knowledgeable and most importantly he provided me with a sense of security throughout a personally difficult time. His holistic approach made my matter as stress-free as possible. He was thorough, patient and a confidante at a time when I required this the most. His depth of knowledge in human rights, race relations and legal workplace matters along with his unique ability to advocate for his clients is what sets him apart from others. To sum it up, Mr Hollis is solution-oriented, empathetic, fair and most of all, provides wise counsel. I highly recommend using Thad Hollis."
