Holly’s legal practice focuses on special education law, school disciplinary proceedings, and other education matters. She graduated from South Texas College of Law in 2005 cum laude and worked at two highly regarded law firms litigating insurance cases as well as an Oil & Gas services company drafting and negotiating contracts, but her plan was always to start a law firm.
In 2012, Holly gave birth to a beautiful baby girl with Down syndrome and discovered a strong passion for helping families of children with special needs navigate the complicated education system and receive services for their children guaranteed under the law.
In 2015, she started the Law Office of Holly Terrell and dedicated her practice to helping families with all types of education law issues, including special education, manifestation determination reviews, and school disciplinary hearings, and school injury cases. On certain cases that involve personal injury, sexual assault, bullying, or Title IX (gender) or Title VI (race) discrimination, Holly can work with other special education firms in order to provide her clients with additional resources and experience for optimal results.
Holly is admitted to practice law in Texas and in the U.S. Federal Court for the Southern District of Texas. She enjoys music, hiking, fly fishing, running, and spending time with her daughters, Evelyn and Georgia.
