law firm to pursue mandamus action on asylum claim of chinese whistleblower

Michael Wildes, Managing Partner of Wildes and Weinberg, P.C., has announced the firm’s representation of Miles Guo in connection to a federal court action intended to ensure that the Department of Homeland Security complies with its duty to fairly and impartially adjudicate the asylum applications of Mr. Miles Guo and those of several of his family members and fellow dissidents.

A highly-respected businessman and prominent political activist and media figure, Mr. Guo is an outspoken critic of the Chinese Communist party. After providing evidence to support corruption charges against a Chinese government official, Mr. Guo was forced to flee from Hong Kong in 2015 in the wake of several politically motivated charges planned by the Chinese Communist Party. He, his family, and friends have endured arrests and unthinkably inhumane harm in the custody of the Chinese Communist Party.

As a young man, Mr. Guo was arrested for supporting student activists in the wake of the Tiananmen Square protests. His younger brother was fatally shot during the arrest. After serving 22 months in jail, Mr. Guo became involved in his families’ real estate development and investments. Since coming to America, Mr. Guo has continued to openly criticize the Chinese government to his hundreds of thousands of his supporters on social media, going so far as to declare his open opposition to the Chinese Communist Party, taking a nearly unheard-of stance among the Chinese elite.

“China is and will continue to be a substantial player in the global economy, culture, and politics,” said Mr. Wildes. “We are proud to assist those seeking relationships and commerce between our nations, to prosper without the fear of political persecution, or in cases where it has already come to bear, to ensure that victims of persecution can find relief as intended through the United States legal system. Mr. Guo and his colleagues/relations have seen exactly how litigation can be used to purge political foes. After five years of waiting, they are still seeking safe haven in America, and their day in court in pursuit of a new life free of these threats.”

Wildes & Weinberg P.C. was founded in 1959 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. 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.

Michael Wildes, the firm’s Managing Partner, is also currently serving his fourth 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.

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. The firm’s litigation group has expanded its efforts in filing Mandamus Actions and other Actions in Federal Courts throughout the nation.

In addition, Wildes & Weinberg’s multilingual staff is spread throughout its offices in New York City, Englewood, New Jersey, Miami, Florida, and by appointment only in Los Angeles, California and Tel Aviv, Israel, 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.
