About Katherine Del Rosario:
Katherine’s path to practicing immigration law was sparked by a combination of unique personal experiences. Born to immigrant parents who were activists in the anti-Marcos movement, she was attuned to the importance of people-powered change. As a young adult, she saw it first-hand while living in Cairo during the Egyptian Revolution. When she returned to Chicago, she spent the first years of her career doing community organizing and policy work around issues of voting rights, language access, and child care and early education. As an attorney, Katherine carries an appreciation of the culture, history, and dignity of her clients.
Prior to becoming a licensed attorney, Katherine represented immigrant clients as a DOJ Accredited Representative. She is the Co-Founder of Alliance for Immigrant Neighbors (AIN), which provides direct service representation and community education to low-income families in the Northwest and Southwest suburbs of Chicago.
Katherine received her J.D. from Chicago-Kent College of Law, where she served as President of the Immigration Law Society and Vice President of the National Lawyers Guild. During law school, she was a Policy Intern at the National Immigrant Justice Center and AABA Law Foundation Fellow at Asian Americans Advancing Justice –Chicago. She earned her B.A. in Linguistics from the University of Washington. Prior to joining McEntee Law, Katherine spent several years working as an immigration attorney at a Chicago-based immigration law firm.
