Nashville Immigration Lawyer Dies

Elliott Ozment, one of Nashville's leading immigration attorneys, died yesterday at age 71. Ozment, founder and managing attorney of Ozment Law and a former Democratic state lawmaker, died after complications following a stroke. A 1975 graduate of Vanderbilt University School of Law, he became known for representing underdog causes in the city, including representing a woman shackled during child birth as she faced deportation, challenging the city’s involvement in the 287(g) federal deportation program and working to defeat a referendum that would have made English the official language of Metro government. He was also active in the TBA and its Immigration Section. Funeral arrangements will be posted when available.
