Anya Lear is an Associate Attorney at Kolko & Associates, P.C., where she practices in the field of U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Law. She received her Juris Doctor degree from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, which she attended on a tuition scholarship. Anya has been licensed to practice law by the Colorado Supreme Court since 2012. She is fully bilingual in Russian and English.

Anya was born and raised in Moscow, Russia, and came to the United States to attend college. As an immigrant herself, Anya personally experienced the U.S. immigration process and, as the result, understands how life-changing and overwhelming the process may be.

During law school, Anya completed an internship at the Denver Immigration Court, where she helped judges draft official court decisions on immigration matters. Anya observed immigration case proceedings and learned what it takes to be an effective advocate for clients at the Immigration Court.

After law school, Anya clerked for a trial judge at Denver District Court. She gained valuable legal experience by conducting legal research in complex civil and appellate cases and drafted judicial orders. Prior to joining Kolko & Associates, P.C., Anya worked at the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Colorado, where she performed legal research and writing on a wide variety of civil and criminal issues.

Prior to starting law school, Anya worked at an international adoption agency where she assisted American families with adoption of orphaned children around the world.  

In her free time, Anya enjoys reading, hiking, traveling, and spending time with her family and friends.
