Jennifer Holder Attorney

Attorney Jennifer Holder is a native of Belvidere, Illinois and a long-time resident of Chicago. While living in Chicago, Jennifer completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Chicago where she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology in 2009.

After earning her bachelor’s degree, she worked with at-risk teens who were in the custody of the State of Illinois. This inspired her to pursue a legal career with a focus on public interest and child protection law. Jennifer received her Juris Doctor degree from DePaul University College of Law where she graduated Cum Laude and earned a Certificate in Public Interest Law. During law school, she gained significant legal experience in the area of criminal records relief while interning at several legal aid agencies in Chicago and was awarded the Benjamin Hooks Distinguished Public Service Award for completing over 200 hours of pro bono work while attending law school.

Jennifer moved back to the Rockford area in 2016 when she started her legal career as an Assistant Public Defender in Winnebago County where she gained experience in the defense of traffic, DUI, misdemeanor and felony charges, as well as representing parents in juvenile abuse & neglect cases. Before joining DeRango & Cain, she practiced at a local general practice firm where she represented clients the areas of civil litigation and family law. She now focuses her practice on family law.
