Hollifield, Travis R.

147 East Lyman Avenue, Suite C, Winter Park, FL 32789
Category: Employment Law - Individuals


To champion the legal, social and economic rights of women by providing thoughtful advice and representation in all Florida state and federal courts of law. FOCUS: Mr. Hollifield focuses on women’s workplace legal needs including litigation of sexual harassment, pregnancy discrimination, wage theft, retaliation, FMLA and non-compete claims. He also litigates intellectual property claims including copyright, trademark, trade secret and patent disputes.


Mr. Hollifield is a graduate of the University of Central Florida and received his law degree from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale. He is a Middle District of Florida (federal) and Florida Supreme Court (state) Certified Circuit Civil and Appellate Mediator who mediates primarily in the areas of employment and intellectual property law.


Mr. Hollifield is actively involved in the Florida chapter of the National Employment Lawyers Association, the Federal Bar Association, and the Orange County Bar Association Labor & Employment Law and Alternative Dispute Resolution Committees. As a former broadcaster prior to becoming an attorney, Mr. Hollifield was a proud card-carrying member of the American Federation of Radio and Television Artists (AFTRA) union and today represents working women in that profession and many others.


Do not be afraid to stand up for yourself and your rights. Too often women suffer in silence when confronted with harassing, discriminatory or retaliatory behavior at work. Many times, workplace problems can be resolved with the help of experienced counsel and without resorting to litigation. If you feel you are being harassed, discriminated against, or retaliated against, seek counsel before you complain or object to your employer. Learning about the best way to articulate an objection may be the difference between a successful outcome of a work dispute and one that is less desirable.
