spotlight: miami office: immigration law offices wildes & weinberg– u.s. immigration law in the sunshine state!

Miami, Florida has always been known for its people. It boasts a richly diverse population and a culture that is famously heterogeneous while still being unique and recognizable as a quintessential American city. Its top industries—tourism, international trade, and media—denote the importance the city places on its people and upon human interaction as a whole. Miami has been called the “cruise capital of the world” while its port has been dubbed the “cargo gateway of the Americas.” Media and telecommunications is a stalwart industry in Miami, with Spanish-speaking news companies such as Telemundo and Univision and entertainment corporations such as Sony Music Latin and Universal Music Latin Entertainment based in the city. 


The effect of the COVID pandemic on Miami’s industries has been palpable, as hotels and cruise lines have had to close their doors and potential tourists throughout the United States and the world have stayed home. But a year after the beginning of the pandemic, Miami is cautiously reawakening, with officials advising visitors to “vacation responsibly.” Hotels and beaches are reopening, the city’s sea trade is resuming its course, and on March 23rd the Miami Beach Convention Center held its first convention since the pandemic began. 

Despite pandemics and hurricanes, the Miami office of Wildes and Weinberg, P.C. has never shuttered its doors alternating staff from in office to remote work to keep everyone safe. With the City’s industries churning back to life and international travel slowly starting up again, we’ve been taking on more employment- and family-based cases as well. Our office, located at 18851 NE 29th Avenue in Aventura, is eager to help the Magic City get back on its feet and to offer our clients guidance through the complex maze of U.S. immigration. Many of our hospitality/culinary clients have opened in Miami advancing their immigration needs into a new corridor of our Nation.


Wildes & Weinberg, P.C. was founded in 1960 by Michael’s father, Leon Wildes, whose best-known accomplishment was his successful representation of John Lennon in his widely publicized deportation proceedings (the circumstances of which have inspired several films and documentaries). The firm specializes exclusively in the practice of U.S. immigration and nationality law, has a distinguished domestic and international clientele, and can assist with any type of immigration matter including employment and investment-based immigration, work permits, permanent residence for qualified individuals, family-based immigration, asylum applications, all temporary and permanent type visas, and U.S. citizenship.        

In addition to running a highly successful immigration law practice, Michael is also currently serving his third term as Mayor of Englewood, New Jersey, is the author of Safe Haven in America: Battles to Open the Golden Door (which draws on over a quarter of a century of his practice in the immigration field), is an Adjunct Professor at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York and serves as Counsel to Lincoln Center and several international/corporate law firms. Moreover, Michael is internationally renowned for his successful representation of distinguished individuals and corporate clients such as performing artists, directors, writers, models, actors/actresses, athletes, race car drivers, fine artists, art dealers, curators, musicians, photographers, stylists, and literary agents. Some of the firm’s other distinguished clients include scholar Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks (z’l), as well as soccer icon Pele, Master Chef Jean-Georges and Former First Lady Melania Trump and her family.       

Today the firm of Wildes & Weinberg has offices in New York City, New York, Englewood, New Jersey, Miami, Florida, and a presence in Los Angeles, California, and continues to maintain its stellar reputation in the field of U.S. Immigration & Nationality Law.
