ABOUT ZACHARY NEW

Zachary R. New is a graduate of the University of Colorado School of Law. During his time at Colorado Law, Mr. New was one of the founding members and eventual President of the Immigration Law and Policy Society, through which he worked to bring immigration issues and advocacy opportunities to the newest generation of lawyers. He spent a year volunteering at the Rocky Mountain Immigrant Advocacy Network (RMIAN), through which he frequently visited Denver’s local ICE detention center to assist detained individuals, and simultaneously worked out of Colorado Law’s Criminal/Immigration Defense legal clinic to give free representation to individuals in ICE custody.

Mr. New has worked on the representation of clients at the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO), the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), and various Federal courts, both at the district court and appellate levels.

ZACHARY’S BIOGRAPHY

Mr. New writes academically on changes in immigration law, and the effects of these changes on immigrants, and his works have been published in such law journals as the University of Southern California (USC) Gould School of Law’s Interdisciplinary Law Journal and the Yale Law Journal Forum.  He enjoys speaking on broad policy issues related to immigration and advocating to bring lasting change to systemic problems in the immigration system.  In his practice, he especially enjoys working with individuals and employers to bring lawsuits in Federal Court over erroneous denials, delayed adjudications, and unlawful policies.

In his free time,  Mr. New enjoys spending time with his family, going on long road trips with his wife, and volunteering at local animal rescues.
