Managing Partner Michael Wildes welcomes Joseph Caraccio to the firm.  Joseph is in the New York City office and comes to Wildes & Weinberg with over a decade of experience in the field.

Caraccio

Joseph Caraccio is a graduate of New York Law School in 2012, where he was the President of the New York Law School Chapter of the Federalist Society. Joseph is licensed to practice law in the State of New York, the District of Columbia and the Department of Justice Executive Office of Immigration Review, and several Federal District and Circuit Courts. He is a member of the New York State Bar Association, American Immigration Lawyers Association, and many local grassroots organizations advocating for immigrant rights and government reform. Prior to attending law school, Joseph lived in Mexico City where he studied Mexican Culture Studies and Conversational Spanish at Universidad Iberoamericana.

Joseph has been practicing immigration law since 2012. His legal practice is focused on helping immigrants obtain legal status in the United States and defending those who face removal (deportation). Most of his current caseload involves the representation of individuals in removal proceedings, Federal Court litigation, and complicated visa matters.

Joseph has also participated on panels at events at law schools in New York City discussing immigration law and twice served as a moot court judge at the International Immigration Law Moot Court Competition at NYU Law School. He was recognized by Thomas Reuters as a Super Lawyer in immigration law in the years of 2017-2021. Martindale-Hubbell recognized him as a Client Champion in 2018-2020, based on the number of five-star reviews and recommendations he received from former clients.

Wildes & Weinberg was founded in 1960 by Senior Partner, Leon Wildes.  Nearly three quarters of a century later, the firm continues to concentrate its practice in all aspects of U.S. immigration and nationality law, servicing the immigration requirements of prominent American and International firms, banks, industrial, financial and manufacturing concerns, as well as law firms in connection with the personnel needs of their foreign national employees.  In addition, the firm has a distinguished clientele and has done substantial immigration work for performing artists, directors, writers, models, actors/actresses, athletes, fine artists, art dealers, curators, and literary agents. Most notable was Leon Wildes’ successful representation of former Beatle John Lennon and his artist wife, Yoko Ono in their deportation proceedings, the basis of which has inspired legislation, and has been portrayed in films, plays, and literary works worldwide. 

Despite difficulties currently being encountered in dealing with U.S. immigration authorities, the firm has maintained an extraordinary track record for success in its cases.  In addition, Wildes & Weinberg’s multilingual staff is spread throughout its offices in New York City, Englewood, New Jersey, Miami, Florida, and Los Angeles, California (by appointment only), and are known for their experience and special expertise in processing each foreign national’s case with nothing less than the highest level of professionalism.
