Managing Partner Michael Wildes is pleased to announce that the firm has successfully obtained an approval of O-1 visa classification for the talented British artist David King Reuben, based on his extraordinary ability in the fine arts as a painter.

His unique works of art have been exhibited at prestigious galleries around the world, including A+E Studios and 48 Bond/Soho Arts Club in New York; 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel in Miami; and Beach Blanket Babylon in London. David and his artwork have been featured in many popular art and media publications, including Italian Vogue, Cool Hunting, XPat Nation and Infinite Legroom.

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).
