Equality and Anti-Discrimination Lawyers

Meet Jennifer

Jennifer Uzcategui, Legal Analyst at McAllister Olivarius.

Jennifer Uzcategui

Legal Analyst

Originally from South Florida, Jennifer joined McAllister Olivarius in 2020 after graduating from Duke University with a Bachelor of Arts in Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies and a Bachelor of Science in Biology. 

She became interested in the law as means of social justice after her experiences volunteering with the Women’s Center in Florida and in her involvement at Duke with the Latinx community of Durham. She feels strongly about being a part of changing and challenging systems that protect a select few over others.

At McAllister Olivarius, Jennifer works on cases of employment discrimination and sexual harassment and is grateful for the opportunity to work closely with such courageous clients.

In her free time, Jennifer enjoys re-reading Jane Austen’s novels, kickboxing, journaling and (in London, dreaming about) going to the beach.

I will always be grateful for your unwavering support of me. Equally, I will always be grateful for showing me how to find my voice and strength.

Title IX case against UCLA, client confidential

It was such a weight off our shoulders; suddenly somebody else with a lot more experience was managing the case.

Sandeep Mander, Mander v. Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead

We really thought that there was nothing that anybody could do for us. We were wrong.

Dr Celeste Kidd, Aslin et al v. University of Rochester et al

To get the result you got you must be as tough with your legal opposites as you are kind and understanding to your clients.

AOA client, confidential

Compared with other law firms I’ve worked with, no one matches the combination that McO has of experience, brilliance, ferocious fighting and deep empathy for their clients.

Dr Holly Atkinson, Atkinson et al v. Mount Sinai Health System, Inc. et al

Because my case could not bear public scrutiny, a very powerful institution used massive financial resources to try to crush me for asking for my disability rights. This was a huge mistake, as they didn’t know that I would obtain McO representation. I couldn’t ask for better representation.

Disability Rights client, confidential

I would like to say from bottom of my heart, thank you. Thank you to all the team. Now I can go and forget my former employer. God bless you all.
