One of the joys of being a Widener Law Commonwealth student is meeting alumni. Gabriella Romeo ’21, Student Bar Association President, interviewed alumnus Prince Holloway ’08. In-person restrictions did not keep them from a fun and engaging interview.

As a Trial attorney at Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Law, Prince is dedicated to standing up for both the injured and the innocent. He is the unique attorney that practices and produces results in both plaintiffs’ civil litigation and criminal defense.

He has also successfully represented numerous individuals injured by motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, and medical negligence. Prince takes great pride in representing victims of crimes and has brought claims against Universities, bars and restaurants. With respect to his criminal practice, Prince represents clients facing all manner of criminal charges, including DUIs. Having previously served as an Assistant District Attorney in Montgomery County, he successfully prosecuted DUI cases and major felony crimes, including attempted murder, aggravated assault, and narcotics violations. This varied and extensive experience further demonstrates Prince’s trial expertise, as well as his thorough understanding of how to build a strong case through investigation and evidence gathering.
