Holly Boylan


Holly Boylan is a top-rated Melbourne Female Criminal Lawyer.

Holly was admitted to legal practice in August 2018 after completing her Bachelor of Laws at Victoria University and graduating with Honours. Her Honours thesis studied the operation of the Sex Offender Registration Act 2004 (Vic) and particularly its impact on low risk and youthful offenders. She feels strongly about the restrictive impact this legislation has on registered offenders.  Following this, Holly completed a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice with the College of Law.

Holly practises in summary and indictable crime, with matters heard in the Magistrates’, County and Supreme Courts of Victoria. Holly also undertakes work in relation to appeals to the Court of Appeal. She is particularly passionate about defending those accused of sexual offences, whether at first instance or on appeal, but her attention to detail ensures all of her client’s matters are handled with great care and diligence. She is committed to approaching each case with professionalism, compassion, pragmatism, and dedication. 

In 2021, 2022 and 2023, Holly was included in the Doyle’s Guide listing of Victorian Criminal Law Rising Stars for individuals practising across Criminal Law, Traffic Law and White Collar crime matters within the Victorian legal market. She is also currently serving on the Executive Committee of the Law Institute of Victoria’s Criminal Law Division.
