Prior to joining RWK Goodman, Holly volunteered as an advisor for the Citizens Advice Bureau and with the Witness Service.

Holly regularly supports families at inquest and where appropriate, to pursue a civil claim post-inquest.

‘I am passionate about helping my clients through the inquest process and where appropriate to pursue a civil claim following the conclusion of the inquest. I hope to assist my clients through the process and to be available to answer any questions they might have. I always endeavour to take time to keep my clients updated and informed and to break down legal jargon to make the process as accessible as possible. I appreciate that attending an inquest can be a very difficult and emotional experience for the families involved, and by offering my legal support I hope to make the process less daunting.’
