michael wildes debates nypd retraining program on fox & friends

Wildes & Weinberg, P.C. Managing Partner Michael Wildes debates Mayor DiBlasio’s three day NYPD retraining program following the death of Eric Garner on Fox & Friends, December 5, 2014.

As a Former Auxiliary Police Officer with the NYPD and Mayor of Englewood, NJ, Wildes & Weinberg Managing Partner Michael Wildes provides his opinion on New York City Mayor DiBlasio’s request to retrain NYPD officers in the wake of the tragic death of Eric Garner. Mayor DiBlasio’s three day retraining includes the following: Day 1) reminding the officers why they joined the NYPD; Day 2) “Smart policing techniques”; and Day 3) Physical tactics training.

In addition to serving as the firm’s Managing Partner, Michael is frequently asked to join network television and radio shows and discuss legal issues relating to U.S. immigration and law enforcement, and is an Adjunct Professor of Business Immigration Law at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, a position he has held for more then four years now and one that he took over from his father and the firm’s Founding Partner, Leon Wildes, who taught U.S. Immigration Law for 33 years prior to passing the baton to Michael.

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.
