Extract:

Olivarius’ website says she has “brought many cases in this area, challenging universities when they have failed in their duty to protect their students from sexual harassment and campus rape.” 

Speaking to The Tab, Olivarius said: “There has been a serious lack of leadership and moral courage in the people doing the investigation.” 

“These girls have been unnecessarily hurt,” she said. “There has been terrible abuse and terrible harm done unnecessarily.” 

Olivarius has also brought cases against professors at Oxford and UCL. 

“We aren’t doing this to chase money, we’re doing it to do the right thing. People have been improperly treated,” she said. 

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.

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.

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.
