Novo Legal Associate Attorney
Olivia Kohrs is an associate attorney at Novo Legal whose practice area focuses on civil rights litigation. Her work focuses largely on immigrants’ rights, both in and out of immigration detention, and has experience litigating conditions of confinement cases in federal court on behalf of ICE and USMS detainees at the Aurora Detention Facility. Olivia went to law school at the University of Denver, where she earned a certificate in Constitutional Rights and Remedies. She graduated as a member of the Order of the Coif and with distinction for her commitment to the public good. There, she spent two years as a student attorney in the Civil Rights Clinic litigating prisoners’ rights cases in federal court. In that capacity, she fought for her clients’ access to adequate medical care and accommodations while in state and federal prisons, including successfully arguing a case before the Tenth Circuit. As a result of her work on those cases, she was awarded the Outstanding Student Lawyer Award and was the inaugural recipient of the Arnold and Porter Civil Rights Scholarship Award.
