Thursday, June 15, 2023
WASHINGTON, DC - The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) recognizes Brian S. Green with the 2023 Sam Williamson Mentor Award, in acknowledgment of his outstanding efforts and excellent counsel to immigration attorneys by providing mentoring assistance.
Brian S. Green is a solo practitioner in Denver, who focuses on bringing federal court challenges to immigration and visa denials and delays, nationwide. He has practiced complex litigation and trial work since 2001, and U.S. immigration law full-time since 2007.
Among the accolades from nominators, he was described as incredibly generous with his time and expertise, a godsend, and invaluable. One nominator wrote, “It is people like Brian (who go out of their way to answer questions and mentor other attorneys) that are making immigration litigation accessible to more clients. The impact of his selfless mentoring of others has rippled through and affected the lives of many.”
Mr. Green is admitted to practice before thirty (30) U.S. district courts. He “cut his teeth” as a judicial law clerk, public defender, and then as outside trial counsel for GE and General Motors (with now Senior U.S. District Judge Nora Barry Fischer).
He has been active with AILA at the national and chapter levels, frequently writing and speaking on federal litigation topics and with the Minoru Yasui American Inn of Court and the Faculty of Federal Advocates, both in Denver.
Mr. Green is a graduate of Washington & Jefferson College and Case Western Reserve’s School of Law, where he studied trial tactics under the late Professor Emeritus Jim McElhaney.
The American Immigration Lawyers Association is the national association of immigration lawyers established to promote justice, advocate for fair and reasonable immigration law and policy, advance the quality of immigration and nationality law and practice, and enhance the professional development of its members.
