AUSTIN – The Texas appellate firm Alexander Dubose & Jefferson LLP (ADJ) is pleased to announce the addition of Kayla Oliver to the firm’s Austin office.
A former law clerk for Judges Diana Saldaña of the Southern District of Texas and Patrick Higginbotham of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, Ms. Oliver previously worked in the trial group of a multinational law firm. She currently teaches an advanced appellate writing course as an adjunct professor of legal writing at the University of Texas School of Law.
Before joining ADJ, Ms. Oliver founded Law Review, LLC, a legal writing consulting firm that offers editing, drafting and coaching services to lawyers in state and federal courts across the country.
“Kayla possesses a uniquely scholarly approach to the practice of law,” said ADJ managing partner Marcy Hogan Greer. “Her analytical skills and ability to craft clear, persuasive, and thoroughly researched briefs that translate even the most complex legal issues into plain English are invaluable. Her addition will benefit our firm, as well as our clients.”
Ms. Oliver earned her law degree from Yale Law School, where she served on the Yale Law Journal and was a teaching assistant to U.S. District Judge Stefan Underhill. She earned her undergraduate degree, with highest honors, from the University of Texas at Austin.
“I am thrilled at the opportunity to practice with the attorneys of Alexander Dubose & Jefferson,” said Ms. Oliver. “Their legal acumen and standards of professional integrity are unmatched.”
