Holli Wares

Holli received her Bachelor’s Degree in history at Saint Leo University.  Holli then graduated from Stetson University College of Law, receiving her Juris Doctor degree, in 2015.  During law school, Holli worked full time as both a court reporter and a legal assistant. She is a go-getter; during law school, Holli also volunteered time for Jacksonville Area Legal Aid, the Innocence Initiative, and the National Clearinghouse for Science, Technology, and the Law.

Holli was then an Assistant Public Defender in the Ninth Judicial Circuit of Florida, where she represented people accused of misdemeanor and felony crimes.  She gained invaluable courtroom experience by being the lead attorney on numerous criminal motions and jury trials. Holli has since moved back to her home, the Gulf Coast.  Before seeing the light and joining Mackey Law Group, Holli worked for a large insurance defense firm, representing employers and insurance carriers in workers’ compensation actions.  Now Holli is part of our litigation group and is handling all types of civil disputes.

Holli is also a member and volunteer at Mote Marine Aquarium and Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. Holli loves paddle boarding, fishing, and swimming in the Gulf. Last but not least, she is also part of a competitive dragon boat racing team.
