He attended Winchester Academy, Virginia Military Institute (VMI), and University of VA.

After the war, he studied law in his father’s law office and was admitted to the bar in 1866. 

He was elected to the VA House of Delegates from Winchester and Frederick County in 1881-82. He created a thriving law practice in Washington, DC and handled several cases in the federal courts. In 1893, he was appointed Assistant Attorney General of the U.S., and in 1895 he became Solicitor General. He continued to be involved in cases before the Supreme Court for over 20 years despite presidential administration changes. In 1901, he served on the law faculty of Georgetown University as a lecturer. He was also the first president of the Handley Board of Trustees and continued in that capacity until his death. Holmes Conrad was married twice and had seven children. After his death on September 4, 1915, he was buried in Mt. Hebron Cemetery, Winchester, VA.
