Miami, Florida: Wildes & Weinberg, P.C., and The Aventura Marketing Council
In the Spring of 2013, Wildes & Weinberg P.C. the premier U.S. Immigration and Nationality Law firm in the United States, announced the expansion of its immigration law offices by the establishment of an office in Miami (Aventura), Florida.
Founded in 1960, Wildes & Weinberg concentrates exclusively in federal immigration and nationality law. The firm grew out of the practice of Leon Wildes, Esq., a distinguished immigration practitioner in New York City. Its original clientele consisted of individuals, rather than corporations, who had been placed in deportation or exclusion proceedings or were otherwise in jeopardy. The practice expanded steadily as word of its outstanding achievements in individual cases spread in the international community (including the firm's representation of former Beatle John Lennon in deportation proceedings), attracting clients from around the world. Today the firm consists of 13 attorneys, all experts in the field of U.S. immigration and nationality law, with more than two dozen staff members handling the work of a distinguished and ever-growing clientele. The firm is known for its prompt and efficient service. Despite its steady growth over the past 50 years, the hallmark of the law practice remains the individualized attention to its clients' needs.
South Florida has become a truly international, cosmopolitan destination and the population of immigrants throughout Florida is rapidly growing in terms of numbers, economic ability and political influence. While we have represented numerous clients in Florida over the past 50 years, we felt it was important to create a permanent presence in Miami (Aventura), Florida, in order to make ourselves more readily available to our current clients and this important demographic group. The Miami (Aventura), Florida, office is relegated to the exclusive practice of Federal U.S. Immigration and Nationality Law.
The expansion of the firm's Miami (Aventura), Florida, office comes at a time when the complexities of U.S. immigration are growing in a climate of confusion and upheaval, with increased government enforcement action taking place nationwide and the potential of comprehensive immigration reform in the air. The offices on Madison Avenue in New York City and on Palisade Avenue in Englewood, New Jersey will remain fully staffed with bilingual attorneys and paralegals capable of handling the needs of institutional and corporate clients, as well as all individual and family-based immigration matters. Our services run the full gamut of federal immigration practice, including employment and investment-based immigration, work permits, permanent residence for qualified individuals, family-based immigration, asylum applications, all temporary and permanent-type visas, immigration compliance/employer sanctions (Form I-9 Audits) and U.S. citizenship. In all three offices, our firm stands committed to continue to serve prompt, honest, individualized counsel for federal immigration related services.
Our membership with the Aventura Marketing Council will allow us to interact with other people in the business/legal communities and build upon the strong relationships we already have in the area. This will afford us the opportunity to brainstorm with our colleagues on the best ways to guide our constituencies.
