Arianne C. Thomas

Associate Attorney Arianne C. Thomas is a savvy practitioner in U.S. immigration matters, with extensive experience in and passion for litigating asylum cases.

Arianne is licensed to practice in the state of Ohio and received her Juris Doctorate from The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law. Arianne received the Dean’s Leadership Award for her service to the Moritz Law School community. Prior to law school, Arianne earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in International Studies from Long Island University Global College, a non-traditional undergraduate program that afforded her the opportunity to study, conduct research, and live in Costa Rica, China, Argentina, and New York City. Arianne gained fluency in Spanish living abroad, a skill which aids her in helping Spanish-speaking clients navigate the complex US immigration laws.

During law school Arianne clerked for Advocates for Basic Legal Equality (ABLE) in their Agricultural Worker & Immigrant Rights Practice Group, as well as with Brown Immigration Law in our Columbus Office. In her first year of practice, Arianne served as the Skaggs Family Foundation Legal Fellow for Homeless Youth at The Legal Aid Society of Columbus, where she provided pro-bono civil legal services, including some immigration-related assistance, to youth facing and experiencing homelessness in Franklin County. Arianne joined Brown Immigration Law in 2022.

Arianne is deeply passionate about advocating for immigrants, as well as fighting for equal access to justice. She strives to serve as both an advocate and a trusted ally for all her clients and is compassionate about how daunting any immigration matter can be.
