Drinks & Dialogue
Speaker begins at 6:30, with time for Q&A. Food and drinks may be purchased.
Our speaker, Christina A. Brown, focuses her Denver law practice on removal defense, family-based immigration petitions, criminal immigration matters, and asylum cases. A Maryland native, she worked in campaign politics before settling down in Colorado in 2008. As a Constituent Advocate for Colorado’s then-Congressman Jared Polis, she discovered her passion for immigration law and decided to attend law school. Christina graduated from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law in May 2013 and was admitted to the Colorado bar that same year. She is also admitted to the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.
In law school Christina began working in the removal defense field of immigration law—at a private firm and at a number of non profit organizations. After graduation, she volunteered in Artesia, New Mexico, helping to represent women and children held in immigration detention camps. After two months, she was hired by the American Immigration Council and served for eight months as Lead Attorney of the Artesia Pro Bono Project. Her work was featured in The New York Times Magazine in February 2015.
