Holly Chapman moved to Augusta from Sandy Springs, Georgia in 2009 when she began her career as a criminal defense attorney. Prior to that, she studied chemical engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology and obtained her bachelor’s degree. She went on to earn her law degree from Georgia State University, where she was awarded honors for litigation.
Although she initially worked for a small civil firm, she knew that she wanted to pursue other opportunities. Her passion for justice and defending the rights of individuals made criminal law a natural choice. Over the past nine years, she has participated in approximately fifty trials, twenty-two of which she served as lead counsel. The nature of the charges in these trials ranged from misdemeanor shoplifting and obstruction of a law enforcement officer to aggravated assault, armed robbery, child molestation, and murder. Holly has represented hundreds of people in Magistrate Court, State Court, Superior Court, the Georgia Court of Appeals, and the Georgia Supreme Court.
As a member of the Augusta community, she has enjoyed participating in local organizations, including the Augusta Bar Association, Young Lawyers of Augusta, Augusta Youth Development Campus Mock Trial and Great Debaters programs, Friends of the Augusta Library, and Leadership Augusta (Class of 2016). Holly resides in Augusta with her husband, Mike, and their daughters.
