Attorney JD Holt received his undergraduate degree from Auburn University. Following undergraduate school, he attended Florida State University where he earned his law degree and his M.B.A. He is licensed to practice law in Florida and Georgia.
Prior to joining Kaine Law, JD practiced in Florida for a private litigation firm where he defended individuals and businesses from actions ranging from breach of contract to civil rights violations. Upon moving to Georgia, JD worked for a local firm serving closely held business owners. In this practice, JD worked with his clients to navigate a range of legal issues from corporate governance to defending against civil lawsuits. This practice allowed JD to gain experience in both jury and bench trials.
After determining that he wanted to return to litigation full-time, JD went to work for a regional insurance defense firm. While working in insurance defense, JD defended individuals in personal injury cases from the initial stages of litigation through the resolution of the case. Throughout all phases, JD worked closely with his clients and the insurance companies to evaluate the best course of action for a fair resolution.
After years of insurance defense, JD became more passionate about helping personal injury victims rather than corporations. JD now uses the knowledge and insight that he gained on the defense side to ensure that his clients are fairly compensated for injuries caused by the negligent acts of others. JD’s experience has allowed him to develop the skills necessary to effectively advocate for his clients in their personal injury cases.
