Caroline U. Hollingsworth grew up in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and knew early on that she wanted to be an attorney. Her desire came from watching her father, also an attorney, work hard and seek justice for individuals within the community. 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.
While in law school, Caroline wrote a booklet and led a seminar for counties within the state encouraging them to try programs such as “Pay for Stay” as a way to increase revenue within the prison system. She also was an officer in the Christian Legal Society, a member of the Arkansas Association of Women Lawyers, and a regular volunteer at city elementary schools.
Upon graduation from law school, Caroline and her husband, Jonathan, decided to return to their roots in Alabama. She passed the bar in 2011 and immediately began work at Heninger Garrison Davis. She works in the Mass Tort department helping clients who have been damaged from medical devices or harmful products. Caroline has been recognized as a Super Lawyers 2018 Mid-South Rising Star 2018, Birmingham Business Rising Star in Law 2018, and B-Metro Top Women Attorneys 2015-2018. She is also on the board for the Birmingham Bar Association.
Caroline and her husband 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, watching college football, and anything to do with food.
“Being a plaintiff’s attorney is a rewarding experience because it gives me first-hand opportunities to listen and console clients in their time of need.”
