  • Alison Holcomb

    I have had the good fortune to serve as co-counsel to Ms. Walsh in two different cases: a civil rights case, and an employment discrimination case. In both cases, Jackie exhibited extraordinary dedication to her clients, a tireless work ethic, and the highest standard of professionalism and ethical conduct. I was proud to have the opportunity to work alongside her.
