Linda Rose Wins Immigration Award

The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) awarded Nashville lawyer Linda Rose with the 2012 Susan D. Quarles AILA Service Excellence Award yesterday during AILA's Annual Conference in Nashville. The award is in recognition of her outstanding service, over a period of years, in advancing the mission, development and value of AILA for its members and the public it serves. The association says Roses's service is "second to none," practicing immigration law for 25 years, 14 of them on the AILA board. Rose is the managing member of Rose Immigration Law Firm PLC and an adjunct professor of immigration law at Vanderbilt University Law School. She is also the leader of the jazz ensemble, Rose On Vibes Quintet, which you can hear tonight at Susie Wong's House of Yum in Nashville.
