History

Founding partners and best friends, Kena Hollingsworth and Christina Zivitz, met while in college together at the University of Southern Indiana. Immediately after receiving their undergraduate degrees, they attended law school together at Robert McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis. Since Kena and Christina were both children of divorce, they were drawn to family law and to finding better ways of assisting families and children through such emotionally traumatic times. Kena and Christina clerked together at family law firms during law school and, upon their graduations in 2001, they began their legal careers at a family law firm in Indianapolis.

In June 2004, after several years of invaluable experience as family law associates, Kena and Christina stepped out on their own and formed Hollingsworth Jocham & Zivitz, P.C. Originally an all-female family law firm once referred to as "the three blonde girls," Hollingsworth & Zivitz, P.C., has undergone many positive transitions over the years.

In 2005, the firm expanded to include an education law and juvenile law department; then, in 2006, the firm further expanded to offer estate planning and elder law services.

In the summer of 2009, due to continued expansion, the firm relocated its current offices in to the Two Penn Mark Building at 11555 N. Meridian Street in Carmel.

In response to the demand of clients and families, Hollingsworth & Zivitz recognized that representing families sometimes calls for assistance with issues not pertaining to divorce. With the addition of a former Hamilton County prosecutor in 2011, Hollingsworth & Zivitz expanded again in order to assist families who experience criminal issues such as DUIs/OWIs, minor consumption, possession charges, etc. The firm's practice assisting families with criminal issues continues to grow with attorneys and staff in order to meet the needs of clients.

For the last decade, more than half of the HZ attorneys have been named Indiana "Super Lawyers" and "Super Lawyers Rising Stars" by Indianapolis Monthly Magazine and Law & Politics Magazine. Also, since the firm's relocation, in addition to having HZ attorneys be selected to participate in the Indianapolis Bar Leader Series, Sagamore Inn of Court, and having a partner named "Distinguished Fellow" by the Indianapolis Bar Foundation, the firm has been honored as one of Indiana's Healthiest Employers, and was selected as one of Indiana's Best Places to Work for several years in a row, including earning first place honors.

Hollingsworth & Zivitz has established itself as a leader in divorce and family law. While divorce and family law continues to be the firm's primary focus, Hollingsworth & Zivitz, P.C., will continue to be responsive to the needs of its family law clients and will continue to expand in ways that better serve them.
