Managing Partner Michael Wildes is pleased to announce that his son, Joshua Harlan Wildes, has joined the firm after serving as an Attorney Advisor in the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review at the Miami Immigration Court, where he was originally hired as a Judicial Law Clerk through the Attorney General’s Honors Program.
This is a proud moment for Michael who stated that: In 1993 when I joined the law firm founded by my father Leon Wildes, it was one of the proudest moments of my life, but that pales in comparison to the experience of my own son Josh following in his grandfather’s footsteps, when he himself joined the firm in October. It’s such a privilege to have Josh continuing my father’s legacy and working with us at the family business, and an honor for our former First Lady to send such kind words in recognition of his accomplishments.
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.
