Since its founding in 1960, Wildes & Weinberg has concentrated its practice in all aspects of U.S. immigration and nationality law, servicing the immigration needs of individuals as well as prominent American and International organizations, banks, industrial, financial and manufacturing concerns, and law firms in connection with the personnel needs of their foreign national employees.  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.

Today, the firm of Wildes & Weinberg, maintains offices in New York City, New York, Englewood, New Jersey, and Miami, Florida, and continues to maintain its stellar reputation in the field of U.S. Immigration & Nationality Law.  This reputation stems in due part due to Mr. Leon Wildes successful representation of former Beatle John Lennon in his widely publicized deportation proceedings, the circumstances of which have inspired several films, documentaries, and legal precedent.

Manhattan Jewish Experience (“MJE”), founded by Rabbi Mark N. Wildes in 1998, is a cutting edge program for young Jewish professionals in their 20’s and 30’s, with little or no background in Judaism who are interested in connecting more to each other, to Judaism and to the community at large. Each year, Michael and Mark commemorate he passing of their late mother, Ruth Wildes, by hosting a memorial lecture in her honor. This year, MJE is proud to invite the community to hear words of inspiration from Rabbi Dr. Meir Y. Soloveichik.  To learn more about Rabbi Mark Wildes and MJE, visit
