Member Monday: Katherine Del Rosario

Associate Attorney // McEntee Law Group

Please provide a description of your practice.
Katherine Del Rosario joined McEntee Law Group in 2021. She concentrates her practice on family and employment-based immigration. As the daughter of Filipino immigrants herself, she carries a deep appreciation of the culture, history, and dignity of her clients.

Why are you a member of the WBAI?
Katherine appreciates the diverse networks represented within the WBAI. Working in immigration, the field’s members are close knit and the resources are robust which is amazing, but she enjoys learning about other practice areas. Through the WBAI, she has met so many impressive women contributing their talents to all areas of law.

What do you think is the best way to empower women in law?
Katherine values mentorship because she has benefitted so much from her own mentors. As the first attorney in her family, she relied on the guidance and advice of women lawyers to find her way to a practice she loves. As a result, she is always eager to connect with law students and new attorneys. Support comes in many forms, and she feels the WBAI is fostering community that encourages more girls and women to become great attorneys.

What are you most looking forward to in the following year, personally/professionally?

Katherine looks forward to more live music this summer, as much as is safe while in the middle of a pandemic. Her firm specializes in music visas and their team is starting to attend more gigs together.

Tell us something interesting about you.

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.
