Renowned Immigration Attorney Michael Wildes Secures Green Card Application for
Miss Universe 2008
Dayana Mendoza on Way to Citizenship
NEW YORK, NY, April 23, 2010 – Michael Wildes of Wildes & Weinberg P.C. is pleased to announce that Dayana Mendoza, Miss Universe® 2008, has been approved for a green card based on her extraordinary ability in the fashion arena. Wildes has been assisting Mendoza, born in Venezuela, in securing a green card to reside in the United States.
Despite having traveled the world for the past eight years as a fashion model, Mendoza feels at home in the U.S. and believes there are many opportunities for her here. She will be studying at the New York Film Academy and plans on pursuing several avenues, including acting, small business ownership, and continued support of HIV/AIDS awareness.
What makes Dayana particularly special, states Wildes, is that “immigration approved the case in seven days based on our demonstration of her success.”
