Linda Rose is the Founding Partner of Rose Immigration Law Firm, PLC, in Nashville. The firm attorneys emphasize PERM labor certification, international transfers, and university research/teaching. Linda is also a jazz musician so she and the other firm attorneys routinely handle O&P visa petitions for musicians, artists, and entertainers. Linda has practiced business immigration law for more than 35 years.

As a long-time member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), she has served as a PERM labor certification mentor since the inception of PERM and co-authored the leading article “Prevailing Wages: How To Do The Right Thing,” which has been published in several editions of AILA’s Guide to PERM Labor Certification. She  held a seat on the AILA Board of Governors for 14 years and served numerous terms on the AILA DOL Liaison Committee and the ACES Committee (arts, athletics, business, education and sciences). She was the 2012 recipient of the AILA Susan Quarles Service Excellence Award. She taught Immigration Law and Policy at Vanderbilt University Law School for 17 years.

Linda’s love of music and culture have taken her to Ghana, Africa many times, where she has studied music and dance. And to no surprise, she has represented several dance troupes and  musicians and facilitated the needed O&P visas for their U.S. tours. When not practicing law, she plays vibraphone and African xylophone with her jazz band RoseOnVibes Quintet (
