My father owned his law practice since I was probably 3 or 4. My mother was also an entrepreneur who owned an office supply store when I was very young, and later her own political consultancy firm.It is a bit nature and nurture.
Ever since I could work, I have always had a job. I delivered the newspaper and worked at the Boys Club as a referee for kids basketball games. My parents nurtured this but also watching them as well as family and friends of my family who owned their own businesses from gas stations and restaurants to funeral home operators. My parents had many friends who ran their own businesses, so it was not unusual to see.
I am a product of the Little Rock, Arkansas, public school system, Hall High School. I am also a graduate of one of the greatest colleges in the world, Morehouse College in Atlanta. It was one of the best experiences of my life, from what was taught in the classroom to learning to deal with people from all walks of life and parts of the country to watching Atlanta grow up as a world-class city. Later, I attended the University of Connecticut School of Law in Hartford, Connecticut, another great public institution.
I primarily have three areas of practice, one is sports and entertainment, both are my passions. Growing up, music played a huge part of my life. I am a ’70s child so I was raised on the very best of R&B and soul and the birth of hip-hop. I played instruments and almost every sport but loved football and basketball, so these areas of my practice allow me to feed my passion and keep up on the changing landscapes in both. My firm is also certified as a CBE (Certified Business Enterprise) with the D.C. government, which means the Hollingsworth Law Firm can bid on contracting opportunities primarily in the areas of legal and business consultation and as a bond counsel, an area of finance which I am hoping to expand.
The third The third area of practice is personal injury. With the [number] of people living in the DMV, every attorney should have some knowledge in this area of the law. On a weekly basis, people call the firm to ask questions regarding an injury caused by someone else. If an attorney learns the intricacies of personal injury, at best it could be quite lucrative, at the very least it can keep the lights on.
