Oliver Owaid was born and raised in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, and the youngest of five children. I graduated from Poly Prep Country Day School and then Brooklyn College, receiving a degree in Philosophy of Law. Prior to finishing my undergraduate degree, I became a licensed real estate agent in New York in 2010 and managed my family's real estate business. For the past year and a half, I have worked at a boutique litigation firm specializing in administrative law, specifically defense work on behalf of physicians against the Department of Health, the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General, and the Office of Professional Misconduct. Our plaintiff work included malpractice and personal injury cases, however the much more interesting cases involved article 78 proceedings against the Office of the Professions to challenge the denial of license reinstatement of healthcare professionals. During my tenure, I was intimately involved in every aspect of litigation. The firm had only two attorneys, however they have a combined 80+ years of litigation experience, ranging from bureau chief at the Bronx District Attorney's Office to chief investigator at OMIG. I conducted client interviews, legal research, and motion and brief drafting. For the fall and spring semesters, I have accepted a position as a legal intern at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center's General Counsel's office. In addition, I am a member of the Brooklyn Journal of Corporate, Financial, and Commercial Law.
