Ms. Holder obtained her first law degree in Latvia, studying local and international law of the European Union. After relocating to the United States in 2003, Oksana earned her Masters Degree in Business Administration and began studying American law at the University of Arizona.

She has successfully authored several industry articles addressing topics such as Arizona’s child support system in the context of federal law, complex issues of immigrant support, environmental issues, and the administrative tax appeal system in Arizona. Prior to becoming a practicing attorney and a partner in her current firm, Ms. Holder worked as a full-time paralegal for law firms specializing in domestic relations, which led to her calling of practicing family law and making a positive difference in people’s lives.
