Following a prolonged litigation battle, Michael assisted in securing immigration status for Janosh and Victorya Neumann, two former FSB Officers. As detailed in an article published in the UK’s The Guardian newspaper and Newsweek magazine
(https://www.newsweek.com/2016/11/18/former-russian-spies-victorya-jan-neumann-fbi-portland-519309.html), the CIA invited Mr. and Ms. Neumann, former FSB officers, to come to the United States, in order to gain valuable insight into Russia’s organized crime families and corruption schemes involving high level Russian Law Enforcement Agencies and the Russian Government. They worked for the FBI and other US and UK intelligence Agencies for almost five years.
Leaving their lives and families behind in Russia, the couple arrived in the United States only for the U.S. Government to renege on its promises and seek their deportation. Michael Wildes and his firm worked with Mr. and Mrs. Neumann, local counsel, and government officials, and assisted in preparing their immigration case. Following a prolonged litigation battle, Michael successfully secured immigration status for Janosh and Victorya Neumann.
