About Attorney David Holt

“Big Healthcare” Simply Isn’t Working…

Let’s be honest. The US Healthcare system just isn’t working. There are many theories on why, but I care about working with healthcare and wellness business owners to bring a new age of health, wellness and mindfulness to the US healthcare system. 

In a nutshell, I am a Biomedical Engineer turned Attorney and Entrepreneur.  I focus on healthcare and business law in order to be an active part of the future of healthcare and new business in Minnesota. I founded Holt Law, LLC to break away from the traditional practice of law.  I’m confident you’ll be impressed with the way I practice law. 

The Firm

Leverage Technology

We leverage modern technology to keep costs down. Our firm is 100% paperless, backed up and encrypted remotely. We can safely share every single document in your case with you electronically. You will receive invoices via e-mail and you can pay them securely online via credit card.

Value Billing

The traditional hourly billing model does not reward creating value for the client.  We practice law differently.  We avoid hourly billing in order to have predictable bills and “skin the game”. We will discuss your goals at our first meeting. We will base our fee on meeting your goals, ideally with a predictable flat fee that we agree is equal to the value of our services.


Speak Plain English

We speak plain English, not legalese.  We use analogies, drawings, and extra time in person to clearly explain what we are doing.  We encourage open communication at all times.  We believe in transparent legal work.

Prevent - Not React

We focus on front-end legal planning rather than back-end costly “clean-up” litigation.  Whether a personal or business manner, our approach is to save you money by anticipating what could go wrong and how we can address those potential issues.  This saves you money, time and anxiety.


We offer appointments during mornings, nights, weekends and weekdays at various office locations in the Twin Cities or an alternate location most easily accessible to you. We offer alternative fee arrangements and varying degrees of representation based on your financial situation.


We are not “jack of all trades” or “whatever comes in the door” attorneys.  We master limited practice areas instead of dabbling in areas of law simply to increase revenue. Our biggest asset is our reputations.  If your case is outside of our practice areas, we will happily try to refer you to an attorney we trust.
