Olivia Perry enjoys connecting with people and is passionate about learning the nuances of each client’s business.

Olivia attended law school at the University of North Carolina, where she served as the Note Editor of the First Amendment Law Review and was a competing member on the Intellectual Property Moot Court Team. She completed 130 hours of pro bono work and participated in two alternative break trips serving rural North Carolina Communities. She confirmed she was on the right career path while serving low-income tenants facing eviction as a Certified Legal Intern at UNC Law’s Civil Legal Assistance Clinic.

Before joining Hedrick Gardner, Olivia was a summer associate handling workers’ compensation at a Raleigh law firm. She completed an internship at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and an externship with the Honorable Lucy Inman at the NC Court of Appeals.

Before law school, Olivia explored the freedom of solo travel; she spent a month exploring Singapore and Thailand and had the opportunity to meet new people and join them in their travels.

A double Tar Heel, Olivia is a die-hard Carolina football and basketball fan. When she is not cheering her teams on, she enjoys running, participating in barre classes, and learning about the fascinating developments at Disney parks.
