Music icon Boy George, the front man and lead singer for Culture Club, offers words of praise for Managing Partner Michael Wildes’ book 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. Boy George had this to say about Safe Haven:
“I needed an expert lawyer to resolve my immigration issues, and I found him in Michael Wildes. Michael’s book is a must-read for history buffs and anyone who cares at all about immigration, human rights, and dignity. Michael Wildes is a great lawyer. Loved his history and his advice! If his family was good enough for John Lennon, they’re good enough for me!”
