Olivia A. Sarmas
Olivia has been a part of our team since 2013, when she joined our office as a law clerk while attending law school. During that time, she took an active hand in supporting Managing Partner Steve Lane and the rest of our team in client interviews, research, legal writing, and discovery. Olivia later returned to us in 2014 after completing her law degree, and she has quickly become a passionate legal advocate for injured and abused victims and their families across the state of Illinois.
Olivia graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with degrees in English and Secondary Education before going on to the IIT/Chicago-Kent College of Law. In law school, she appeared on the Dean’s List multiple times and won three CALI Excellence for the Future Awards ®, receiving the highest grade in her class in Advanced Evidence, Trial Advocacy 2, and Law, Literature and Feminism. She is a current member of both the Chicago Bar Association’s Tort Litigation Committee and Civil Practice Committee, and she was a part of the Women in Law Committee at Chicago-Kent. As an interesting note, Olivia is also licensed to teach secondary-school English in the state of Illinois.
