HOLLY HARNEY:

 

Attorney Harney was admitted to the Bar in 2002 and is admitted to the United States District Court (District of Massachusetts).  She is locally recognized as one of the top litigators on Cape Cod.  Attorney Harney has focused her practice in recent years on Domestic Relations, criminal defense and civil litigation matters.


She is a 1994 graduate of the University of Massachusetts Amherst and graduated Cum Laude from New England law 2002 after receiving a 4 year Merit Scholarship to Law School.  Following Law school she worked for the District Attorney’s office for the Cape and Islands and then began her work in private practice in 2010 at Carter and DeYoung in Hyannis. She remained at Carter DeYoung until opening her own practice in 2017.  Attorney Harney has become known as an attorney who will work hard for her
clients and can make a compelling argument in the courtroom. In addition to this, she is an 
attorney who will do her best to reasonably resolve a matter in an amicable
 way and in a way that provides the best solutions and most equitable outcome
 for her clients.



 

Attorney Harney has been recognized with numerous awards and recognition's 
including most recently being awarded the 2016 “unsung Heroine award” from
 the Commission on the Status of Women.  Each year the Commission gathers 
nominations from across the state for women who make outstanding
 contributions to their organizations and communities. The Honorees are 
nominated by state legislators as a means of recognizing women for their 
previously unnoted yet valuable community contributions. The Unsung Heroines
 are women who don’t always make the news, but truly make the difference.
 They are the women who use their time, talent and enthusiasm to enrich the 
lives of others and make a difference in their neighborhoods, cities and
 towns. They are mentors, volunteers and innovators who do what needs to be 
done without expectations of recognition or gratitude. These women are the 
glue that keeps a community together and every community has them.  This
 award epitomizes the work that Holly does both for her clients and for her 
community.



 

The First justices of the Probate an Family Courts have recognized Attorney
 Harney as a recipient of  the First Justices Award in 2015, 2016 and 2017
 for her work on Pro Bono matters including representing children through the
 “ARC” (Attorneys representing children) program, her work representing 
economically challenged client’s through South Coast Legal Services and the 
countless other ways she uses her talents to support those in need including
 providing legal clinic’s to the non-profit WE CAN and helping to support
 clients in need of legal help without the resources to afford
 representation.



 

In addition to the work Attorney Harney does while practicing law, she also 
contributes to her community by giving back and donating her time to a
 number of causes.  She is on the Board of South Coast Legal Services and the Barnstable County Bar Association, she is on the school council for the and Mullen Hall School in
