HGD attorney Caroline Hollingsworth was named “Rising Star in Law 2018” by the Birmingham Business Journal. The fourth annual Birmingham’s Rising Star Lawyers Awards honor up-and-coming attorneys under the age of 40. Honorees were selected based on their contributions to the firm, tangible results in their practice areas and involvement in the community, among other factors.
Caroline attended the University of Alabama for her undergraduate studies and acquired a degree in political science and history. She later obtained a scholarship to William Bowen School of Law in Little Rock, Arkansas. She has been practicing in the area of Mass Torts at HGD for seven years. During her tenure at the firm, Caroline has been the head of the firm’s Vaginal Mesh Litigation helping close to 2,000 clients-helped facilitate settlements. She also worked on the Syngenta Corn Litigation-which is now in settlement.
Caroline and her husband, Jonathan, have two daughters and two dogs. They attend Hunter Street Baptist Church and serve on their neighborhood’s planning committee. In her spare time, Caroline also volunteers with the Junior League of Birmingham and enjoys running and watching college football.
