DALLAS, Feb. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Immigration powerhouse BAL kicks off another year of distinction with the National Law Journal's 2023 Legal Technology Trailblazers Award. The award recognizes "agents of change that are using innovation to help ease the daily tasks taken on by law firms and legal departments."

"We're honored by this recognition that embodies our commitment to cutting-edge technological tools that address the needs and challenges of in-house corporate immigration professionals," said Managing Partner Jeremy Fudge. "I continue to be inspired by our incredible people behind all of our award-winning technology. They truly are the agents of change who make a positive difference in people's lives every day."
