Managing Partner Michael Wildes is pleased to announce that the firm has assisted Trump Model Ms. Margott Bialik with her O-1 visa approval.

As an internationally recognized model who has sustained an extraordinary career over the past 5 years, Ms. Margott Bialik certainly meets (and exceeds) the regulatory standard. Ms. Bialik has been represented by prominent international agencies Premier Model Management in London and View Management in Barcelona and is highly sought after across all European markets. Prestigious publications from around the globe such as Harper’s Bazaar Poland, Marie Claire France, Vogue Japan and Glamour UK, are but a few examples of where her extraordinary work has appeared.

Trump Model Management is one of the world’s top modeling agencies and a long-standing client of Michael Wildes and the Wildes & Weinberg firm. The firm files many O-1 visa petitions for fashion models throughout the year and considers this one of our practice specialties.

Of particular note, Managing Partner Michael Wildes has served as a featured panelist for a fashion law symposium at Cardozo Law School titled “International Fashion Trends: The Business of International Fashion Law."

In order to qualify for an O-1 visa which allows individuals of extraordinary ability in the arts, sciences, athletics, education or business to live and work in the United States, a foreign national must provide adequate documentation to demonstrate that he/she has sustained national or international acclaim in their field.

In addition, the individual must provide substantial evidence to prove that he/she meets 3 of the 6 evidence categories defined by statute, as well as a written advisory opinion from a labor union or relevant peer group. The O-1 visa applicant must also show that he/she has an offer of employment in the United States to work in his/her field of expertise (or several offers of employment from multiple sources, along with a third-party Agent to petition on the individual’s behalf and connect him/her to the multiple employers).

For more than fifty six years, the firm of Wildes & Weinberg has concentrated its practice in all aspects of U.S. immigration and nationality law, servicing the immigration requirements of prominent American and International individuals and corporations, banks, industrial, financial and manufacturing concerns, and law firms in connection with the personnel needs of their foreign national employees.  In addition, the firm has a distinguished clientele and has done substantial immigration work for investors, scientists, physicians, bankers, performing artists, directors, writers, models, actors, athletes, fine artists, art dealers, curators, musicians, and literary agents.
