Managing Partner Michael Wildes is pleased to announce that Wildes & Weinberg P.C. has secured O-1 visa classification for the second time on behalf of Tina Veshaguri, a highly acclaimed fashion model from Russia, based upon her extraordinary ability in the arts.
Ms. Veshaguri has garnered a distinguished international reputation as a model having worked extensively in the major markets of London, Paris, Milan, Tokyo, and New York, among others. She has demonstrated her extraordinary ability by appearing for prestigious bookings.

These high profile assignments confirm her extraordinary reputation as a fashion model and have made her one of the most desired models today. We look forward to her continued success!
