Elizabeth Holtzman serves as the co-chair of Herrick's Government Relations Practice, concentrating her practice in government relations at the federal, state and local levels, and in litigation. She joined Herrick after 20 years in government. She served for eight years as a U.S. Congresswoman and won national attention for her role on the House Judiciary committee during Watergate. She chaired the Immigration and Refugees Subcommittee and dealt directly with many foreign governments -- including Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam -- over refugee issues.
Liz was subsequently elected District Attorney of Kings County (Brooklyn), the only woman ever elected DA in New York City, serving for eight years. As DA, she argued successfully before the United States Supreme Court, and pioneered new strategies for the prosecution of rape and environmental crimes. She led the effort to overturn law allowing blacks to be removed from juries.
Liz has written many op-ed stories and has appeared on TV and in movies, including two Academy Award-winning documentaries, "Hotel Terminus" on Gestapo Chief Klaus Barbie and "Women - for America, for the World" on nuclear disarmament.
