“Every day Holly works to improve the situation for those around her. With many possible careers available to a young, bright attorney, I think it is extremely admirable that Holly has decided to devote herself to promoting economic advancement for low- to moderate-income individuals and families in Baltimore and across Maryland,” said state Sen. Richard S. Madaleno Jr., R-Montgomery, with whom Mirabella worked to expand the earned income tax credit for younger workers.

I am grateful to be able to use my legal (and other) education to advocate for financial empowerment for communities which are most often overlooked. My ideals and contributions demonstrate that the legal community can play a major role in building a more equitable state and nation.”
