Christal Holmes joined Fulmer Law, PA in 2015. Originally from Illinois, she relocated to Florida in 2002 to take a position as HR Director for a major Lakeland employer. While serving in this position, she was often called upon to help her employees find a work-life balance as they struggled with family issues. She considered this to be one of the most rewarding parts of her job and made the decision to further this interest by attending law school at Florida A&M University College of Law in the evenings while continuing to work full time during the day and raising a family.

Ms. Holmes was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2012 and left the Human Resources world in 2014 to practice law full time. She specializes in family law as she continues to concentrate on helping people who find themselves in difficult situations such as divorce, child custody, guardianship, adoption and dependency.

Christal Holmes lives in Lakeland with her husband where they are kept very busy with the activities of their four children.
