She also drafts prenuptial agreements and prepares comprehensive legal briefs concerning sophisticated family law issues.
Holly is a skilled litigator, with notable experience in all phases of divorce from inception through trial, although she firmly believes it is in her client’s best interest to resolve matters through negotiation and collaboration whenever possible. As a certified divorce coach, she routinely works with divorcing individuals by addressing their emotional concerns, providing direction to resolve financial concerns, and suggesting negotiation strategies. Her goal when acting in this role is to improve her client’s confidence and ease the stress often experienced during the divorce process.
To enhance her legal capabilities, Holly participated in extensive mediation training and is a Supreme Court Certified Family Law Meditator in the State of Florida. She also earned a master’s degree in social work so that she could better understand and assist clients in resolving family disputes. Holly draws upon her education and experience when working as a guardian ad litem for minor children, in connection with elder law concerns, and as a parent coordinator assisting parents involved in high-conflict, child-related matters.
Holly began her legal career as a business and commercial law litigator and then continued her practice at various prominent law firms where she worked on a variety of business-related matters, including class action securities fraud litigation in federal courts throughout the country. Collectively, these experiences have served to supplement her family law practice, particularly when representing high-net-worth individuals who require complex valuation and distribution of financial and business assets, such as real estate, retirement plans, deferred compensation plans, and other assets.
