Attorney Holly Dolejsi enjoys representing plaintiffs in mass tort cases against some of the nation’s largest medical device and pharmaceutical companies.
“It is like a neighbor taking on Goliath,” Dolejsi said of her job. “I like to help clients gain compensation for their injuries. It is through the legal system that the playing field is leveled.”
Since 2011, Dolejsi has participated in several major cases litigated by Robins Kaplan’s Mass Tort group, often assuming leadership roles in them.
In July, Dolejsi was named co-lead counsel in the Farxiga multidistrict litigation, an appointment she won after successfully arguing to a panel of seven federal judges to create the MDL. That kind of honor is rare for such a young attorney, said Tara Sutton, head of Robins’ Mass Tort group.
Dolejsi also was co-lead counsel in the Stryker Rejuvenate/ABG II modular hip litigation. “It is all about you … becoming indispensable so that people want to work with you,” Dolejsi said.
Besides her regular practice, Dolejsi is active in several lawyer organizations including the Minnesota Association for Justice and Public Justice, a national public interest law firm.
Dolejsi earned her J.D. from William Mitchell College of Law in 2009.
