Lawyer Accused of Fatal Hit-&-Run Has Been Arrested


Miami-Dade police have arrested the man they believe was responsible for killing 26-year-old Tatum Holloway while she was crossing the street last December. Marcos Gonzalez-Balboa, a personal injury lawyer and resident of Miami-Dade County, allegedly ran over Ms. Holloway just over a mile from his Miami office. Gonzalez-Balboa left Holloway on the curb and fled the scene.

His Mercedes Benz was found the next day, but the police have only now been able to identify Gonzalez-Balboa as the driver. He has since been charged with vehicular homicide, failure to stop at the scene of a crash, DUI manslaughter, failure to render aid, and tampering with evidence.

We Finally Have Answers—Next, the Holloways Need Justice

Our firm is representing Tatum’s parents. We filed a wrongful death case yesterday after the identity of Tatum’s killer was discovered. "For four months Tatum's parents waited to learn what happened to their daughter and tonight they finally have some answers," Attorney David Bianchi said.

"The fact that he is a lawyer makes this horrible tragedy all the more outrageous."

Ms. Holloway was from Cape Town, South Africa and worked as an auctioneer for Park West Gallery. The company operated galleries and held live auctions onboard cruise ships. Ms. Holloway was in Miami on business and was crossing the street after picking up her food. A passerby called 911 shortly after Gonzalez-Balboa drove away.

Personal injury lawyers spend our careers holding people responsible for their recklessness. We hope to make it clear that lawyers are never immune from their own standards.
