Biography

Biography

Alyssa Telander is an Associate Attorney at Kolko & Associates, P.C., where she specializes in U.S. Immigration Law.

Alyssa grew up in the Twin Cities area in Minnesota and attended Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Women & Gender Studies in 2010.

After graduation, Alyssa served two terms as an AmeriCorps volunteer at two legal non-profit organizations in El Paso, Texas. She first worked on immigrant workers’ rights issues as a legal assistant and community organizer. Then, she worked as an immigration caseworker, focusing on Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and U-Visa cases. Alyssa then moved a short distance north to Las Cruces, New Mexico where she worked as a community organizer for a national civil rights organization.

Alyssa attended law school at Northeastern University School of Law in Boston, Massachusetts. During law school, Alyssa concentrated her studies on Immigration Law and worked with immigration firms, solo practitioners, and non-profit organizations in order to expand her experience in the field. She had the opportunity to clerk with the U.S. Immigration Court in Buffalo, New York. She also worked as an intern at the Southern Poverty Law Center and the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild during law school.

Prior to relocating to Denver and joining Kolko & Associates, P.C., Alyssa worked in a unique public-defender style program in New York, representing low-income individuals detained at an immigration detention facility in Batavia, New York.

Alyssa is fluent in Spanish.

In her free time, Alyssa enjoys hiking, camping, exploring Colorado, and visiting family.
