Before joining BB&B, Holly Iaccarino spent several years working for federal judges, which provided her with valuable experience in substantive and complex areas of law, as well as federal civil and criminal procedure. While clerking for the Honorable Gregory F. Van Tatenhove, United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Kentucky, Holly handled cases involving a wide range of federal law issues including white collar crime, employment and discrimination law, and various Constitutional challenges. Before clerking for Judge Van Tatenhove, Holly also clerked for the Honorable Victor J. Wolski on the United States Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C. There, she worked on a variety of cases involving administrative law and federal agencies, government contracts, Vaccine Act litigation, and other areas of regulatory law.
Holly earned her law degree in 2010 from The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law in Washington, D.C., graduating magna cum laude. During her tenure there, she worked on the Journal of Law, Philosophy, and Culture; participated in the school’s Comparative and International Legal Studies Program, served as president of Advocates for Life; was an active member in the Women’s Law Caucus and Federalist Society; studied abroad at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland; and worked as a summer associate at Venable, LLP.
In 2005, Holly graduated summa cum laude from Asbury University with a Bachelor of Arts in history. At Asbury, she won state and national competitions on the Speech and Debate Team and was actively involved with the school’s Equine Program, training horses and giving riding lessons. Holly later earned her Master’s Degree in European History from George Mason University in Fairfax, VA, graduating with academic honors for her research and writing.
