Holly H. Brasher
Holly Brasher was born in Birmingham, Alabama, on June 9, 1993. Holly earned her undergraduate degrees and graduated summa cum laude from Samford University in 2016. She then attended Cumberland School of Law as the first student to complete the “3+3” Accelerated Law Degree Program, which allowed her to complete her undergraduate study in three years and attend law school a year early. She was admitted to practice law in Alabama after passing the July 2018 bar examination.
In law school, Holly was the editor-in-chief of Cumberland’s American Journal of Trial Advocacy, the nation’s oldest law review dedicated to the art of trial advocacy. In her role as editor-in-chief, Holly oversaw the publication of all three issues of Volume 41 of the Journal, and she played a large role in planning and orchestrating a continuing legal education symposium entitled “A Ballpark Overview: The Field of Sports Law.” Holly’s student comment exploring special education law in American public schools was featured in the publication, and it was selected as the Outstanding Student Article for 2016. Holly was published by the American Journal of Trial Advocacy on three additional occasions, writing on such varied topics as personal privacy and smart devices, a defendant’s fifth amendment rights, and the mandated Individual Education Plan requirements under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). During her time at Cumberland, Holly also acted as a Judge Abraham Caruthers teaching fellow with the Lawyering and Legal Reasoning Department, and she was a team leader on the Career Development Advisory Board. She was a member of the Judge James Edwin Horton Inn of Courts, as well as the Phi Alpha Delta legal fraternity.
Holly is a member of the Young Lawyers Section of the Alabama Bar Association, as well as the Birmingham Bar Association. She is active in her church and her community, and she enjoys spending time with her family. Holly and her husband Daniel were married in December 2018, and they live in Birmingham, Alabama
