Lawyers help stranded exchange students

A handful of sympathetic lawyers in Salem and Roanoke have managed to save the day for three Peruvian college students stuck without jobs in Virginia while on an exchange program.

As reported by The Roanoke Times,  attorney Correy Diviney took up the students’ cause without charge, filing suit against the Nashville-based student exchange company that apparently left the visiting trio without the jobs they had been promised.  Meanwhile, Art and Diane Strickland have taken the students under their wings, helping to find lodging and introducing them to the YMCA and their church.

Salem immigration lawyer Christine Poarch reportedly made the referral to Diviney.
