michael wildes appears on fox & friends and the kelly file to discuss the journey to safe passage for hero mohamed gulab, who saved u.s. navy seal marcus luttrell


Wildes & Weinberg, P.C. Managing Partner Michael Wildes appeared on Fox & Friends, on January 16, 2014, to discuss Afgan Hero Mohamed Gulab’s voyage to safe passage in America. As depicted in the film “Lone Survivor”, Mohamed Gulab saved Navy SEAL Luttrell, the only man on his team to survive an ambush from the Taliban. It was a direct result of this act of courage and heroism that officer Luttrell was safely returned to the U.S. Now, this Afghan villager is seeking asylum in the United States.

Wildes, a former Federal Prosecutor (U.S. Attorney’s Office) and Mayor (Englewood, New Jersey) has previously confirmed that Gulab is out of Afghanistan and now a refugee under international law.  It is his hope and prayer that the United States government will grant Mr. Gulab and his family refugee status and that the extraordinary efforts of this hero will not be forgotten.

In addition to running a highly successful law practice, Michael is also an Adjunct Professor of Business Immigration at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York City as well as a frequent guest and legal commentator on network television and radio. Prior to joining the firm, Michael served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of New York and was a two term Mayor and City Councilperson in his hometown, Englewood, NJ.

For more than five decades, Wildes & Weinberg has been concentrating exclusively in federal immigration and nationality law. The firm’s original clientele consisted of individuals, rather than corporations, who had been placed in deportation or exclusion proceedings or were otherwise in jeopardy. The practice expanded steadily as word of its outstanding achievements in individual cases spread in the international community (including the firm’s representation of former Beatle John Lennon in deportation proceedings), attracting clients from around the world. Today the firm consists of 14 attorneys, all experts in the field of U.S. immigration and nationality law, with more than two dozen staff members handling the work of a distinguished and ever-growing clientele. The firm is known for its prompt and efficient service. Despite its steady growth over the past 50 years, the hallmark of the law practice remains the individualized attention to its clients’ needs.
