NAGTRI Welcomes Consumer Protection Fellow

The National Attorney General Training and Research Institute (NAGTRI) and the Center for the State Enforcement of Antitrust and Consumer Protection Laws (State Center) are pleased to welcome Olivia “Libby” DeBlasio from the Colorado Attorney General’s Office as the first NAGTRI/State Center Consumer Protection Fellow. Funded by the State Center, the Consumer Protection Fellowship program is designed to provide consumer protection assistant attorneys general an extraordinary opportunity to develop expertise in a specific discipline in consumer protection, which would in turn provide tangible and meaningful assistance to his or her colleagues around the country. The work of the Fellow can be divided into two major areas: research/publication and information sharing/liaison work. Grant funds will be used to cover housing and related costs for a three-month period for two Fellows. Libby will be working as a Fellow in the NAAG office until mid-April.

Libby has been an assistant attorney general since 2006. She investigates and litigates in a variety of consumer areas, including charitable fraud, unauthorized practice of law, mortgage fraud, door-to-door sales, and auto repair pricing. Prior to working for the Colorado Attorney General’s Office, Libby worked for a private law firm in Denver where she focused on complex commercial litigation. In 2004, after graduating from the University of Denver College of Law, she clerked for the Honorable Alan Loeb in the Colorado Court of Appeals.

Although born in Washington D.C., she grew up in Colorado and attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, earning a bachelor’s degree in news-editorial journalism. After college she worked for three years in San Francisco as a content editor for and did some freelance writing.
