Wildes & Weinberg is perhaps best known for our Founding Partner Leon Wildes' representation of John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono.

Between 1972 and 1976, Leon represented Lennon and Ono in their struggle to remain in the United States, despite the concerted attempts for the Nixon Administration to deport them.

The case (which included bringing four separate Federal lawsuits) not only resulted in John and Yoko getting their green cards and being able to remain in the United States, but it also led to substantial changes in immigration law and brought to light secretive government practices and undue political influence, and has resulted in greater transparency in the U.S. immigration system.

Leon and Michael Wildes discuss the case on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell:
