About Tamara Holder

Tamara Holder Biography

The website xpunged.com was founded by Tamara Holder. Her legal practice is now wholly focused on governor clemency and pardons. She formerly worked as a criminal defense attorney, successfully defending clients in the most serious felonies, including murder and drug and firearm possession, and sealing or expunging many clients' prior records. She just had her sentence commuted and regularly shows up in front of the Illinois Prisoner Review Board. She has collaborated closely with some of the most illustrious figures in the nation and the city. Holder established the clinic at the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, which Rev. Jesse L. Jackson runs. She has had discussions on pardons with Illinois Governors Rod Blagojevich and Pat Quinn, about criminal sentence and expungement laws with Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, and about gang violence with former Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis. Holder's activity in politics and law extends beyond Chicago. She was the first in the nation to reveal the railroad sector's unethical hiring procedures for people with criminal records. She was the driving force behind a congressional investigation and hearing before the Homeland Security Committee. Later, she appeared before the Congressional Committee on Transportation's Subcommittee on Maritime and Infrastructure as an expert witness. Her testimony was essential in stopping the adoption of a law requiring mandatory identity cards for transportation employees, which was opposed by both organized labor and management. The regulation was intrusive, anti-worker, and anti-business. Holder held meetings with various members of Congress, including John Conyers, Bennie Thompson, and Sheila Jackson-Lee, as well as DHS officials, including former TSA Administrator Kip Hawley, during this period to discuss the link between employment practices and domestic terrorism. Tamara Holder was named one of the "50 People Who Make Chicago a Better Place" by the Chicago Sun-Times. The Wall Street Journal's top page emphasized her efforts in expunging criminal records. Holder contributes legal and political commentary to Fox News Channel. She served as the go-to commentator for the Rod Blagojevich trials, Rahm Emanuel's mayoral campaign, and the controversies involving the former congressmen Anthony Weiner and John Edwards. She was once a blogger for The Huffington Post and The Daily Caller and frequently contributes to Sean Hannity's radio and television shows. The holder is a member of several advisory boards, including those for Women of Power, which is housed inside the Cook County Jail and is dedicated to assisting women in rehabilitation; Leo Catholic High School, an all-boys school in the inner city of Chicago with a 100% graduation rate, and Horizon Prison Ministry, which aids inmates in getting ready for release into society. Tamara Holder is a recent alumna of the John Marshall Law School and the University of Arizona. She gained experience in criminal trial procedure while working as an intern for the Cook County State's Attorney's Office and contract negotiations and mediation at Los Angeles' Miramax Films.
