PICTURED WITH FOUNDING AND MANAGING PARTNERS LEON AND MICHAEL WILDES AT THE BOOK LAUNCH OF “JOHN LENNON VS. THE USA” IS BULGARIAN BORN PIANIST TANIA STAVREVA, CLIENT OF THE FIRM
On September 7, 2016, the launch of Leon Wildes superb new book “John Lennon vs. The USA” was held at the Benjamin Cardozo School of Law in New York City. See https://www.wildeslaw.com/index.php/news-events/events-and-outreach/1553-john-lennon-vs-the-usa-book-warming-event-held-at-cardozo-law
Attending the warm and welcoming event was a mix of invited guests and notables such as Lennon’s One-To-One Concert cohort Geraldo Rivera, long-time friend & photographer Bob Gruen, Fest for Beatles Fans founders Mark & Carol Lapidos, as well as many of the firm’s clients including, Tania Stavreva, a Bulgarian born pianist (http://www.taniastavreva.com).
Leon and Michael (who wrote the book’s foreword) held a combination meet-and-greet and book signing prior to holding a roundtable conversation about the case.
Founded in 1960, Wildes & Weinberg is perhaps best known for Leon Wildes’ representation of former Beatle 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 of 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, that has resulted in greater transparency in the U.S. immigration system.
The book, aptly titled “John Lennon vs. The USA”., is published by Ankerwycke Books, an imprint of ABA Publishing, a division of the American Bar Association and became available in August, 2016. It can be purchased on Amazon at: http://www.amazon.com/John-Lennon-vs-The-U-S-A/dp/1634254260.
