Farshad Owji Elected AILA President-Elect 2022

Jun 22, 2022 | Announcements

On June 16th, 2022, the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) announced their newly elected officers for the 2022-2023 term. WR Immigration is proud to share that Partner Farshad Owji has been elected as the association’s president-elect. With current memberships in the Florida, Minnesota, and District of Columbia bars, as well as the Istanbul Bar Association in Turkey, Farshad is well deserving of this prestigious role. Farshad’s AILA installation will be in Orlando in June, 2023.

We are delighted to have yet another attorney represent the firm as an AILA president. Our team of lawyers consistently lends their thought leadership beyond the confines of WR offices and participates in AILA leadership roles. Managing Partner and past AILA President Bernie Wolfsdorf had this to say, “I am very proud Farshad has been elected and know he will serve with dedication and compassion. He is the perfect leader during these difficult times.”

We would also like to congratulate all the other newly elected officials; Kelli J. Stump as First Vice President, Jeff Joseph as Second Vice President, Alexis S. Axelrad as Treasurer, and Jacqueline Watson as Secretary. Join us in applauding these individuals for their hard work and commitment to serve.
