michael wildes secures o visa for lionel richie

Michael Wildes and Wildes & Weinberg, P.C., O visa expert lawyers secure O-1 Visa for Claire Hanson, celebrity hair and makeup artist.

 Once again, Managing Partner Michael Wildes, and his talented staff, were successful in their O-1 visa application on behalf of their client.  This time, the lucky recipient is Claire Hanson. Ms. Hanson’s O-1 Visa will allow her to remain in the United States and continue her work with LBR Touring Inc., the corporate entity that directs the business functions of famed artist Mr. Lionel Richie and his concert tours.

 Ms. Hanson began her career as a make-up artist 17 years ago.  She began her career in London servicing the needs of some of UK’s leading fashion brands.  As word spread of her outstanding abilities, Ms. Hanson clients expanded to include domestic and international music artists and her work was featured in a variety of media outlets including television, motion picture and print. For nearly the last decade, Ms. Hanson has risen from personal groomer to Mr. Richie’s personal artist assistant.

 An O visa is a non-immigrant temporary worker visa classification granted by the United States to an alien “who possesses extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics, or who has a demonstrated record of extraordinary achievement in the motion picture or television industry and has been recognized nationally or internationally for those achievements,” and to certain assistants and immediate family members of such aliens.

 No doubt, Ms. Hanson’s cutting edge approach to style and glamour as well as her artistic passion was evident throughout Mr. Richie’s upcoming U.S. North American tour.
