Olson, Bzdok & Howard Welcomes Holly Hillyer, Attorney


Holly Hillyer

Olson, Bzdok & Howard, P.C. is pleased to announce the addition of Holly Hillyer as an attorney.

Holly is a litigation associate with the firm representing clients in matters related to environmental law, Indian law, land use, real estate, energy, municipal law, and commercial litigation.

Holly started her legal career with the U.S. Department of Justice when she was selected through the Attorney General's Honors Program to serve as an Attorney Advisor for the Detroit Immigration Court. She then joined Advocates for Basic Legal Equality, Inc. (ABLE), a nonprofit civil legal aid firm in Toledo, Ohio, where she engaged in administrative advocacy, community lawyering, policy advocacy, litigation, and transactional work across a variety of practice areas on behalf of people living in marginalized communities. She completed an Equal Justice Works Fellowship to improve health outcomes for women and immigrants in northwest Ohio and most recently served as the Legal Director for ABLE’s Medical-Legal Partnership for Children. Her work in neighborhoods where residents were routinely sickened by exposure to environmental hazards reignited a longstanding interest in environmental law and brought her to Olson, Bzdok & Howard, P.C.

Holly holds a Bachelor of Arts from Kenyon College, where she majored in Studio Art. She received her law degree summa cum laude from the University of Toledo College of Law, where she was Valedictorian of her graduating class. When she is not working, Holly spends her time enjoying nature, gardening, knitting, and metalsmithing.
