Mike is a native to the Des Moines area and spent his formative years in the area until he left to attend Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI. Mike graduated from Marquette in 1998 with a Bachelors of Science in Biology. Upon graduation, Mike joined the Masters program at Louisiana State University, New Orleans, with a focus in microbiology. Not one to be confined to a lab, Mike switched gears and went into the real estate sales in the New Orleans area. The 2008 recession forced a change of careers and in 2009 Mike returned to Iowa and entered the law program at Drake University in Des Moines.

Mike graduated in 2011, passed the bar in 2012 and hung his shingle that same year as a solo practitioner. The Kent Law Firm has been successfully representing clients in the areas of family law, real estate law and wills and trusts for the past eight years. In 2020, the Kent Law Firm ceased operations when Mike and Elissa formed the Holman Kent Law firm.

At Holman Kent, the focus is the client. We place a great deal of importance on having direct and open lines of communication with our clients. Our clients remain fully informed of the legal process every step of the way. At Holman Kent, you aren’t just a client—you’re family.
