wildes & weinberg, p.c. managing partner michael wildes wishes client maryeve dufault, canadian professional race car driver, nascar sensation and now green card holder, best of luck on her upcoming race

Maryeve Dufault, Canadian professional race car driver and NASCAR sensation, engaged Managing Partner Michael Wildes and Wildes & Weinberg to steer her through the course of her U.S. immigration needs. Both Maryeve and Michael share something in common: DNA (at least the very idea of it). Racing has always been in Maryeve Dufault’s DNA; first motorcycles, then karts, then open-wheel and stock cars. Both Maryeve’s father and brother raced motorcycles in her native Quebec.

Immigration law has always been in Michael Wildes’ DNA; his father, Leon Wildes, founded Wildes & Weinberg, P.C. in 1960 and Michael met his wife, Amy, in the immigration law class taught by his father at Cardozo Law School.  After nearly 33 years of teaching, Michael took over his father’s class and is now an Adjunct Professor of Business Immigration Law at Cardozo while simultaneously balancing a very busy professional career. Michael believes he and Amy passed their DNA onto their children as they suspect that at least one of their four kids will be sitting for the LSAT in the near future.

Known as the premier U.S. Immigration and Nationality Law firm, Wildes & Weinberg,  is a New York City  niche-based firm consisting of over forty individuals. Over the past 50 years, Wildes & Weinberg has dedicated its  practice  to the exclusivity of U.S. immigration and nationality law, servicing the immigration needs of prominent American and International firms, banks, industrial, financial and manufacturing concerns and 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 including Joe Cocker, Johnny Rotten, Paloma Picasso, the 2013, 2011,2010, 2009 and 2008 Miss Universes, supermodel Giselle Bundchen and Sarah Brightman, the world’s bestselling female classical artist of the twenty-first century.

Despite difficulties currently being encountered in dealing with U.S. immigration authorities, Wildes & Weinberg has maintained an extraordinary track record for success in its cases.  In addition, the multi-lingual staff is known for its experience and special expertise in processing each foreign national’s case with nothing less than the highest level of professionalism. In addition the New York City office, Wildes & Weinberg also has offices in Englewood, NJ and in Aventura, FL.

“For over 5 decades, our law firm has worked tirelessly to secure visas, green cards, and naturalization for our clients.  We have brought some of the most talented individuals and preeminent experts in their fields to the United States, many who have gone on to leave their legacy here.  Following in the footsteps of my father, who is most well-known for his successful representation of former Beatle John Lennon and his artist wife Yoko Ono in their deportation hearing, has been a life-long dream of mine and I am so grateful to my father’s guidance and partnership” concluded Wildes.
