Mr. Holzhauer attended Lewis & Clark Law School and graduated magna cum laude in May 2023. He is excited to join KGG after sitting for the Illinois bar exam.

Until that time, KGG attorneys will be mentoring him while he gains additional experience as their legal assistant in these areas of practice.
While studying at Lewis & Clark, Mr. Holzhauer counseled clients at the Small Business Legal Clinic. There, he honed his legal research and legal drafting skills and successfully evaluated the legal needs of clients and offered solutions. He drafted construction contracts and a memorandum of law that provided guidance regarding compliance with import and export regulations. He also completed a remote externship at Earth Law Center, where he assisted a non-profit land trust in preparing a farm lease consistent with its environmental advocacy goals. Mr. Holzhauer was awarded the Larry Kressel Memorial Scholarship, which recognizes an outstanding student in the area of land use.
In his final year at Lewis & Clark, he served as a research assistant for Professor Samir Parikh. Mr. Holzhauer researched trends in leveraged buyouts and their relation to a provision of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code for Professor Parikh’s upcoming article for the Pennsylvania Law Review entitled “Financial Disequilibrium.”
While completing his undergraduate degree, Mr. Holzhauer was chosen to be a teaching assistant for a deductive logic course, showcasing his valuable critical thinking skills which are essential to the practice of law.
In his free time, Mr. Holzhauer enjoys playing the guitar and writing songs. He has been playing guitar since high school, but he still considers himself a novice.
