Mary Gayle Holden
Of Counsel

Ms. Holden started her practice with a large Virginia law firm in Fairfax doing zoning and land development and commercial leasing. Although Ms. Holden has provided a variety of legal services, including litigation and estate tax planning, her focus was on transactional and business law services.  She worked for almost 15 years in a large international law firm in the DC office serving national and international clients on business transactional matters. But she never forgot her native Virginia, and preferred local clients to clients across the globe. In 2004, Ms. Holden left DC to return to her home in Loudoun County. She now practices in the Purcellville office of Turner & Kinney, serving primarily commercial real estate and business law clients in the northern Virginia and DC area.
