With a strong commitment to putting forth the maximum amount of effort for each victim she encounters, Deputy District Attorney Holliann Morro joins the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office.

Holliann Morro is a third-generation resident of San Bernardino County, a first-generation college graduate, and proud to serve as the first attorney in her family. She has grown up to humbly serve the community that shaped her into the changemaker she is today.

Deputy District Attorney Holliann Morro was sworn in on Wednesday, February 17, 2021 by District Attorney Jason Anderson.

From an early age, I wanted to be a lawyer. I was inspired by the concept of using my voice to represent those who could not speak—either because they were fearful or because they did not have access to the resources that would enable them to speak.

Holliann received an Associate’s degree in Political Science from Crafton Hills College in 2013, a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Philosophy from Brigham Young University—Provo in 2015, and a Juris Doctorate degree from the University of La Verne College of Law in 2020.

Before and during law school, Holliann worked for a private firm in a field of administrative law. While this type of law may not be intriguing to many, it reinforced her general interest in the law. In March of 2018, Holliann started her internship with the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s office, and remains a loyal member of our office today.

Holliann was first assigned to the Appellate Services Unit (ASU), where she was introduced to many who would later become trusted friends and lifelong mentors. During her tenure in ASU, Holliann worked on capital cases, crimes against children, research projects concerning new laws in the State, and cases that had been appealed. This exposure to such a variety of legal issues and cases inspired her to pursue a career seeking justice for the people of California. After her first year interning, Holliann was able to appear on cases in court, where her connection to the cases and the victims of crimes grew even stronger.

Each victim’s story I encountered, each hearing I prepared for, and each time I appeared in court further motivated me to give each case every possible bit of effort. In this capacity, I was able to live out my childhood dream of helping those in my community whose voices have been stifled.

Holliann shared that it has been an absolute privilege to represent the interests of the people of California for the last nearly three years, and she feels deeply honored and humbled to be entrusted to serve her community as a deputy district attorney.
