William Holzer was born and raised in southern California. He is a graduate of UCLA (’04) and UCLA Law School (’07). During law school he clerked with the California Department of Justice, Appeals, Writs, and Trials Sections, and the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, Compton Hardcore Gang Unit.
William worked as a Deputy District Attorney with the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office from 2007 to 2012. He was awarded “Prosecutor of the Month” on six occasions for his success in criminal jury trials. As a prosecutor in the narcotics unit, he worked in the field with local, state and federal agencies. He participated in the execution of gang and narcotics search warrants, worked on undercover buy programs, and used undercover officers (UCs) and confidential informants (CIs) in his cases.
After leaving the DA’s Office, William started a solo practice devoted to representing clients against the government and large corporations. His clients are almost always the “little guys” – indigent criminal defendants, middle-class individuals, small business owners – and he zealously represents them against the Goliaths of the legal world.
Outside of work, William is devoted to his wife and four children. William also enjoys playing ice hockey, skiing, fly-fishing and participating in competitive shooting matches.
