Dear Voters,

I am excited to move into the last month of my candidacy for Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Seat #60 in the November 6, 2018 elections.  I am running because we need dignity and fair play in our judicial system.  My intention for this judgeship is to infuse compassion and intelligence into the legal process. And, I believe that reconciliation and rehabilitation can make the justice system more effective. With the knowledge and experience I have gained as a Deputy Public Defender I intend to serve all parties before the court with equality, compassion and fair consideration of the law!

That is why I want you to vote for me, Office No. 60, on November 6, 2018!

Together we can. Together we will.

Justice Speaks: A Moment With Holly Hancock & Herbie Hancock

Listen in as jazz legend Herbie Hancock and Judicial Candidate Holly Hancock have a personal discussion on the social issues that affect Los Angeles County and the criminal justice system.


Meet Holly


Holly Hancock, a veteran of the Office of the Public Defender, has tried 55 jury trials. She has won the last eleven, which includes felonies and misdemeanors. Two convictions have been overturned by the appellate courts to the advantage of her clients. Her experience gives her a unique perspective on sentencing and its alternatives. She has had to analyze all facets of the legal issue and all sides of the facts of the incident in order to successfully serve her clients.

Holly received her B.A. in Rhetoric from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Later, she became a flight attendant and served as the Vice President of the Association of Flight Attendants.  It was during this time that Holly realized she wanted to be a lawyer.  “I knew I wanted to be a lawyer when I represented flight attendants at the most challenging times in aviation history – the 9-11 terrorist attacks.”

Her goal was realized when she received her J.D. from Southwestern Law School (formerly Southwestern University School of Law) and became a trial lawyer.  Holly has been approved by the Judges of the Superior Court to act as a Judge Pro Tem in small claims court.

Holly understands the importance of giving back to the community.  She has been an advocate for pro-active re-entry and education programs, and a volunteer teen advisor.
