Desiree Austin-Holliday holds the position of Senior Associate Attorney at Ben Crump Law. The youngest of four children, she was born in Atlanta, Georgia, to Rev. Dr. Sharon G. Austin and Michael Holliday. Her mother, the first female pastor at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, provided Desiree with early exposure to the impact and legacy of significant civil rights advocates throughout history.

Having relocated to Florida at a young age, Desiree has lived in various cities across the state. She earned her bachelor’s degree in government from Berry College in Rome, Georgia, in 2014, and later attended St. Louis University School of Law in St. Louis, Missouri, graduating with her law degree in 2018.

During her law school years, Desiree actively participated in various organizations, including a community outreach program that taught law classes at local jails and juvenile detention centers. Her school and community involvement earned her numerous accolades.

Beginning her legal career as a criminal defense attorney, Desiree expanded her expertise over the years to include civil litigation and civil rights law. Her work has spanned cases involving police brutality, employment discrimination, workers’ compensation, municipal law, and OSHA safety regulations. Currently, as the supervising attorney at Ben Crump Law’s Las Vegas office, she leads a team of paralegals, overseeing cases and managing the firm’s considerable caseload.

Desiree has contributed to several high-profile cases, including the historic Malcolm X wrongful death case, the Hair Relaxer Mass Tort Litigation, the Astroworld Festival deaths, and advocacy for disenfranchised Black Farmers in litigation against the U.S. Government.
