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.

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