Immigration Attorney Making a Difference in the Lives of His Clients

Hamilton County Herald, Friday, April 06, 2012
Each day, immigration attorney Terrence Olsen moves mountains for his clients. Whether he’s providing pro bono services to an agency that brings refugees into the country, or removing the international barriers that separate a husband and wife, or helping a foreign entity set up operations in the U.S., he’s simply doing his job.

The film If There Is A Way is about a married couple from the small African nation of Burundi who fled from their war-torn country in 1972.

This is a short film about their experiences in Africa, America, and their hope to see their children once more.



The Olsen Law Firm was officially established in September 2003 in the Hamilton County Business Development Center. On April 30, 2012, the Olsen Law Firm relocated to Liberty Plaza at 535 Chestnut Street, Suite 160, Chattanooga, TN 37402.


The overall issues facing the Olsen Law Firm as an immigration law firm have been how to operate and develop in a social and economic climate in which new immigration laws and policies are being introduced monthly and are greatly increasing the scrutiny of nonimmigrants and immigrants in the U.S.. With this said, the Olsen Law Firm views its own image as a firm from a local, national, and international level. Therefore, the Olsen Law Firm attempts to communicate through its relationships via its work product, its clients, and the greater community by demonstrating that the world is a much smaller place and so by working and living and treating each other with consistency and respect then all matters social, economic, and cultural can be both enjoyable and positive.
