Holly Werkema joined Baron & Budd in May of 2012 in the firm’s general litigation group, representing homeowners throughout the southeast affected by toxic Chinese drywall installations in their homes. After the settlement with the drywall manufacturer, Ms. Werkema assisted hundreds of the firm’s clients in navigating the claims process that ultimately led to repair and/or replacement of the toxic drywall in clients’ homes.

Ms. Werkema recently joined the firm’s pharmaceutical litigation group, where she represents clients and their families adversely affected by Granuflo, a product used in dialysis that has caused countless deaths due to misleading and inadequate use instructions provided to health care professionals by its manufacturer.

Prior to joining Baron & Budd, Ms. Werkema served the State of Florida Department of Financial Services as an attorney in the Prosecution and Enforcement Litigation Group. Here she developed her litigation skills representing the Department in enforcement proceedings, rule challenge proceedings, property claim denial proceedings and garnishment proceedings.
