Olivia E. Russell

Senior Associate Attorney

Olivia is a Senior Associate Attorney specializing in employment-based immigration solutions for an array of companies in the biotech and hi-tech sectors. She has experience handling a variety of corporate matters, especially with nonimmigrant petitions such as the H-1B and O-1 visas. Olivia prides herself on exceeding her client’s needs by handling each matter with care, precision, and clarity.

Olivia graduated from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, School of Law with a concentrated study in Cyber and High Technology Law. She leverages this background to match the rapid-growth and specific needs of her clients in these industries. During law school, she received a CALI Excellence for the Future Award for excellent achievement for a paper she authored on the history of Japan’s national space legislation. Olivia complimented her emphasis on hi-tech throughout school by working as a student attorney in the UNL College of Law Immigration Clinic where she drafted numerous Crimmigration Analysis Memos for the Criminal Defense Counsel. This project provided her the opportunity to get a jumpstart on strategizing all possible immigration consequences for non-citizen clients – a skill in tandem with her concentrated studies in high growth industries that she utilizes daily at Brown Immigration Law to get the best outcomes for her clients. 

Beyond her practice at Brown Immigration Law, Olivia enjoys immersing herself in nature on long hikes or longboarding with her dog, Jax. She is a voracious reader, especially when it comes to the science fiction and science fantasy genres. Her favorite author is Octavia E. Butler who penned the Lilith’s Brood collection.
