Attorney Profile

Holt Lackey is a founding partner at Ellwanger Law. Prior to joining the Austin-based firm, he worked in D.C. at one of the nation's premier law firms. There, he began to realize that money and power swayed the justice scales more than fairness did. This stemmed from the fact that the rich and powerful could afford lobbyists and big law firms with seemingly limitless resources.

This inspired him to build an employment law practice in Texas that could rival the best attorneys and finally deliver on the promise of equal justice under law. To this end, Mr. Lackey also serves clients in Dallas, Texas, and the state of Louisiana. His cases span employment law, unpaid overtime, wage/hour disputes, sexual harassment, discrimination and more.

Mr. Lackey earned his undergraduate degree at Northwestern University. He then completed his law degree at The University of Texas School of Law and graduated with honors. He was admitted to the bar in 2005. He is a third-generation attorney and comes from a family that was active in the civil rights movement. In fact, his grandfather served President Johnson at the time of signing the Voting Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act.

When not serving his clients in court, Mr. Lackey focuses on his contributions to the legal field and his local community. He is a member of the Economic Prosperity Commission and Joint Cultural Commission. He also serves on the Board of the Anti-Defamation League of Austin and is the Secretary of the Board of Equality Texas.
