David Lazaar, long-time paralegal and PERM  expert at Wildes & Weinberg, P.C., assists Managing Partner, Michael Wildes, during his Business Immigration Law class at The Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. 

Michael Wildes is half way through his 7th semester teaching Business Immigration Law at The Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York City (Michael’s alma mater), a position his father held for nearly 30 years prior.   Michael asked David Lazaar, the firm’s long-time paralegal and PERM expert to assist with explaining how a permanent labor certification application is processed. This type of application requires approval of the Department of Labor (DOL)  and, if granted, it allows an employer to hire a foreign national to work permanently in the United States.


More than fifty seven years since its inception, the firm continues to serve 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 application, all temporary and permanent-type visas, naturalization, and Form I-9 compliance. Today, the firm has offices in New York City, Englewood, New Jersey, Miami, Florida and by appointment in Los Angeles, California.

In addition to running a highly successful immigration law practice, Michael is Of Counsel to Lincoln Center and other international/corporate law firms. A former Federal Prosecutor with the United States Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn (1989-1993), he has testified on Capitol Hill in connection with anti-terrorism legislation and 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, and literary agents. Some of the firm’s recent clients include famed artist Sarah Brightman, several Miss Universe winners as well as soccer icon Pele.

Moreover, Michael  is a frequent participant on professional panels and commentator on network television and radio with regard to immigration law.
