One of Rose Immigration Law Firms' areas of concentration is in the entertainment industry, especially in music.  Being located in Nashville (Music City USA), the firm's lawyers stand ready to represent artists of alltypes coming to Nashville and to the U.S.  What makes teh firm particularly attuened to the music industry is the fact that Linda Rose is a musician herself.  When the workday comes to a close, she picks up her vibraphone mallets to lead her own jazz band, Rose on Vibes Quintet.  For more information on her band, visit:

    I highly recommend Linda on business immigration matters, especially in the areas of PERM labor certifications and visas for musicians. Linda has a deep and scholarly knowledge of immigration law, is extremely dedicated, and comes up with effective solutions for a wide variety of issues. We have worked together for a number of years on committees and panels to advocate for better immigration answers for businesses.
