MANAGING PARTNER MICHAEL WILDES ATTENDS SUPER LAWYERS EVENT IN NEW YORK CITY, MAY 2017.
Super Lawyers provides lawyer ratings and helps the consumer find selected attorneys in their location for their specific legal issues.
Leon Wildes, the Founding and Senior Partner of Wildes & Weinberg, has been featured in the Super Lawyers ratings for U.S. Immigration and Nationality Law in the past. Mr. 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, books, and documentaries, established the firm in 1960 as a niche practice specializing exclusively in U.S. immigration and nationality law.
Today, the firm, which has offices in New York City, Englewood, NJ, Miami, FL, and Los Angeles, CA, services a distinguished domestic and international clientele and covers all areas of U.S. immigration law, including employment and investment-based immigration, work permits, permanent residence for qualified individuals, family-based immigration, asylum applications and all temporary and permanent type visas.
Leon’s son, Michael, who is now the Managing Partner of the firm, is also of counsel to Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and two international/corporate law firms. A former Federal Prosecutor with the United States Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn (1989-1993), Michael has testified on Capitol Hill in connection with anti-terrorism legislation, and is a frequent participant on professional panels and commentator on network television and radio with regard to US immigration law, employer sanction work and compliance.
In addition, Michael served two terms as the Mayor of Englewood, New Jersey, was appointed to the District Appeals Board of the Selective Service System for the State of New Jersey, was a member of the New Jersey Governor’s Blue Panel on Immigration, and has been a guest lecturer at many distinguished forums and institutions including Yale University, New York University, Brooklyn Law School, and The Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, where Michael is an Adjunct Professor of Business Immigration Law.
Despite difficulties currently being encountered in dealing with U.S. immigration authorities, Wildes & Weinberg has maintained an extraordinary track record for success for its cases. Moreover, the firm’s multilingual staff is known for its experience and special expertise in processing each foreign national’s case with nothing less than the highest level of professionalism.
