During her 10 years at Goldberg, Persky &White, Holly has developed a specific knowledge in working up and litigating asbestos-related lawsuits after being intimately involved with thousands of cases. Holly's additional expertise falls under the estate arena, particularly in drafting wills and Power of Attorneys as well as probating and administering estates. To date, she's handled more than 200 estates. Holly currently co-manages our firm's Western Pennsylvania asbestos docket and manages our firm's estate practice.
An interest in arguing led to Holly's decision to become an attorney. While in high school, her father suggested she pursue it as a career and put her "talent" to use. Initially, Holly had intentions of becoming a district attorney and prosecuting criminals.
As a law student, Holly did a clerkship with Judge Zottola when he presided over criminal cases in Allegheny County. Later, she served as a clerk for the Honorable Judge Gregory Olson in Indiana County from 2004 to 2005 where her legal career began to take a different course.
While clerking for Judge Olson, GPW tried a case in front of him. Enjoying her interactions with the attorneys present, Holly decided to see if any positions were available at the firm. As fate would have it, there was and she joined the GPW roster.
Despite moving from the criminal arena to personal injury, she still fights for victims' rights in the battle against asbestos companies. The issue hits home, as both her grandfathers worked for Bethlehem Steel in Johnstown and were exposed to asbestos. Today, both are our clients.
Holly currently lives in Economy Borough, Beaver County, with her wonderful husband, Luke, and two incredible sons. Her favorite pastime involves just being with her family. Her sons are active and involved in sports and she enjoys watching them play.
