We have obtained green cards for: Dayana Mendoza, Miss Universe 2008, Stefania Fernandez, Miss Universe 2009, several O visas for Jimena Navarrete, Miss Universe 2010 and Leila Lopes, Miss Universe 2011.  My father, Leon Wildes, previously assisted Rita Messinger, Miss Universe 1976, acquire U.S. citizenship,” said Wildes. “These young ladies have a lot of work to do in the year they hold the Miss Universe title and it comes with global responsibility.  It’s a pleasure to make their jobs that much easier.  Our firm knows their needs and is able to get things done quickly,” concluded Wildes.
