Michael Wildes True Professional - I would highly recommend him to anyone!!
I reached out to The Law Offices of Micheal Wildes for legal advice and received accurate and timely feedback on the small claims case I had been involved in. Micheal Wildes is a true professional and will go out of his way to ensure his clients are getting the most out of their money. As a young professional in an unrelated field with little knowledge in law, Micheal Wildes was clear and concise in his legal approach making it easy for me to understand the fundamentals, parameters, and implications of the case I had been involved in. As a result of the preparation and guidance from Nathaniel I won the case- thank you!

Best Immigration Lawer
I am so grateful for the outcome of my car. Wilde & Weinberg is a trustworthy immigration law firm and i strongly recommend Mr. Michael Wildes and his team. I worked personally with Ms Ash Chang, who wasted no time in filling my motion and kept me posted of every steps. I didn't anticipate the the case would be approved so speedily. The entire team did an excellent work. I am beyond trilled to pursue my dream as an America resident. I look forward to continue working hard and contributing to the progress of this incredible land that i embrace and proud to call home. Thank you Michael Wildes.

Highly recommended Michael Wildes
A big thanks to Michael Wildes who had handled my visa related issues effectively. My F1 visa was about to expire and I needed to do something as early as possible for extending my stay in United States. I did not possess much knowledge about this procedure but Mr. Wildes and his entire team made things easy for me. I got visa extension within a short period. Highly recommended!

Best immigration lawyer
Best immigration lawyer. Straight to the point, responsive, clear in his explanations and most importantly..... Michael and his team (Eduardo also played a big role) DO GET RESULTS! My case was difficult and we had to wait more than 12 months for me to fulfill all requirements. But when these were fulfilled, we got a positive answer after 8 days only, without a single question from the USCIS. I will not "only" recommend Michael and his team, I will rely on them for the next steps. When you hire the best immigration firm, you keep it. Thank you Michael.

Michael Wildes has solved my immigration case
It is common knowledge how stringent immigration laws in the US are which is why I wanted only the best lawyer to handle my immigration case. I don’t think I could find a better one than Michael Wildes who thoroughly understood my problems and helped me through the entire lawsuit.

Best lawyer i happened to work with
I moved five years ago to the US for seeking political asylum and wanted legal help to clear all the legal formalities. For some reason I seemed to have bad luck with lawyers who would never show up on time and failed to get me though the lawsuit. Thanks to my friend who recommended consultation at Wildes and Weinberg. Michael Wildes was appointed my attorney and he handled the case with such flair and effortlessness. No wonder my friend recommended this firm to me.

Arrogant and extremely Money Hungry
Came in for a consultation. Seems like a typical sales man. Without even looking at the facts of the case, he pretty much went on and on on how amazing he was and how great his firm was. After going on and on on how great he was, he started discussing on what the fees were. We have a basic immigration case where we only needed someone to file paperwork and some other minor stuff, which wouldn't take more than a few hours. Michael knew that it was a basic issue but insisted that he had to go through massive litigation and quoted tens of thousands of dollars. He would deliberately try to find the most complex way to do something just so he could make an extra buck. I wasn't sure if I was either in a law firm or a Car Dealership. Ironically, his paralegals know much more than he does.

Not trustworthy at all
I retained this attorney for my immigration case and was extremely unhappy with the way I was dealt with and treated. After being quoted a price online he raised his fees while I was in his office when he found out who my family was and that we were well to do. In addition, he said there would be no consultation fee, but charged us one anyways. I put this aside because of his reputation and proceeded to use him. This was a terrible mistake because he continued to show his devious nature throughout the entire process and continue to swindle me for more money. He and his paralegal were extremely rude and hung up the phone on me several times because I was "asking to many questions and I was not paying them enough for their time." It is people like Michael Wildes who give lawyers the terrible reputation they are known for.

Terrible experience!
Ridiculously overpriced! He charged me 400 dollars for 30 minutes of consultation, which didn't offer me any meaningful information. He tried to persuade me to hire his lawyer even after his lawer told me my case is unlikely to be successful. He is also super rude and arrogant. To be honest, this guy is just a typical politician and businessman. Don't believe in anything he says!
