Mr. Joshua Pex is knowledgeable and Professional. I really appreciate his courteous and direct approach.
We were searching for a law firm that will be honest with us and really work hard for a satisfying result, it wasn't an easy task
We found them online; they were the only law firm from all of our searchings which were completely honest and NOT gave us just what we wanted to hear
Using them guaranteed honesty above all. A legal team that is friendly and cares for a superb result
They really care about helping their customers without any other interest
Nadia gave us service behind what we expected; she was professional which lead to fast and easy process with great result
We definitely recommend using them
Incredibly knowledgeable, approachable, accessible, and evident across the board that they truly care about the people they are helping. They are quick to respond, engaged, and obviously top-notch lawyers. I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Thank you, Joshua and Itamar for your help with our Joint Life Application. You were a calming energy during a storm - always breathed a sigh of relief after speaking with you. It is so difficult to get straight answers from the Misrad Hapnim, but you guys are straight shooters. I appreciate your candor and evident integrity. Hope to work with you in the future, and will send everyone I know in need of legal aid your way. Thank you for your guidance and support.
Josh has been helping me on and off for a few years now. I have needed legal advice and assistance with immigration due to a complex situation of mine, and he has been extremely available and responsive, honest and clear about my route and how to proceed. Very much recommended!
The best lawyer firm I’ve had dealt with. I would like to thank Anat Levi and Ariel Galili from the Jerusalem branch for all of their efforts and patience, we could not have been Able to reach to where we are now without them
Very knowledgeable and professional
Dongdiet & Nellie
We are very happy with the services. Somehow they managed to translate the law lingo into language we actually understand 😉 and their outstanding YouTube videos helped us to have a better grasp of what process we had to go through. Their patience, clear explanation and experience are very valuable. It's also very nice to know that you will receive response promptly; it made us feel we can really trust their services. We recommend all those looking for immigration lawyers to get in touch.
Courteous, clear, efficient service.
I can highly recommend these services!
Every time we turned to Joshua we always got a professional quick and helpful respond.
I have been receiving services from this Law Firm for several years now and I want to say THANK YOU to the team, especially Joshua Pex. They are doing outstanding work. The services I have received for both our Israeli non profit association but also our social business have helped us solve many issues at hand and provided solutions in complicated situations. Personally, I am grateful for support in visa issues as a foreigner living now in Israel for many years.
If you need to solve any complicated legal issue in Israel, don't hesitate to contact them. Otherwise you will loose hours/days/weeks with things that they can solve in minutes. They helped me to obtain my expert working visa in Israel and even after that they responded further questions and gave me advices related to administrative issues in Israel which saved me a lot of time. Irena Rosenberg and Michael Decker worked on my case, they are very professional and helpful. They will not let you down, feel free to contact them.
I really recommend the law office's services. The service is very professional and efficient, the price is right. I am satisfied with the services I needed and happy to have known them.
Excellent service, very friendly and helpful, fast responding and very patient. Highly recommend. I will choose them again next time if needed.
I am delighted to report that my wife and I have just obtained our Israeli citizenship. We will be forever grateful for all of the help, guidance and support which Ariel Galili of Decker, Pex, Ofir & Co. provided through this process.
I am a Jewish, 80-year-old American, and my wife is not Jewish. We had started the process on our own back in November 2020 via the Jewish Agency and Nefesh B’Nefesh, but soon became entangled in the delays and often-changing regulations due to Covid-19. The pandemic also caused delays in obtaining the required apostilles for various documents from various state agencies and the US State Department.
We found Decker, Pex, Ofir & Co. On the internet and began working with Ariel in late November 2021. Ariel did a superb job of leading us through the process, helping us to understand which documents were essential, which would most likely be required, and which, though included on the list of required documents, were rarely required. He helped us several times to understand what was likely and unlikely to occur as “the next step.” Helping us manage our expectations was extremely useful to us.
Besides his knowing the laws, regulations and procedures, Ariel also made us feel that he was truly interested in helping us to successfully work through this process in as smooth, timely, and frustration-free manner as possible.
My wife and I strongly recommend anyone planning to go through this process seriously consider hiring Decker, Pex, Ofir & Co. and, specifically, Ariel Galili.
We have been working with Decker, Pex Ofir & Co - Law Firm in Tel Aviv for many years very well. Because we appreciated their lawyers services, we recommended businesses and individuals again and again to go there as well.
We were very satisfied with the service of Nehama. She was very professional in all her dealings and kept us informed all the way.
We highly recommend this law firm. They proved to be reliable, efficient and pleasant to work with.

For Advocate Joshua Pex.
We were in a devastating situation when my wife received an order from the immigration office to leave Israel within 30 days, without any explanation, after we have been married and in the process for six and a half years. We heard of Advocate Pex through a friend of a friend. We contacted Mr. Pex and he was ready to help us when he heard of our situation.
The service is amazing! Always ready to assist without regard to the time it takes. The advice Mr. Pex gave us was great, such as what to do, he gave useful links, and advice about which officials to contact. The price for the service was great!
The process until we received the extension for another year for my wife was not long (3 months). Things started moving once Mr. Pex came into the picture.
We highly recommend Advocate Joshua Pex! We achieved our goal and the fear of deportation has been lifted!
A really excellent firm. They knew exactly how to handle my situation effectively and efficiently, and we got the result I needed without much fuss. Adi Berger was a wonderful advocate for me and I am deeply grateful for her help!
I admire the Austrian citizenship team in Tel-Aviv branch! They deserve more then 5 stars!! They are very friendly and professional. I've got Austrian citizenship in 4 months for all family members which consists of 12 people! The entire team is very friendly and responsive. They are always answering questions and support during the process. I recommend to everyone. Was 100% satisfied.
We had a pleasure of working with Irena Rosenberg who assisted in getting our two U.S. born children registered in Israel and supported visa process for my wife in 2021. During the pandemic, my wife and I decided to move to Israel where I am originally from after living in the U.S. for over 20 years, but we had no idea how to go about securing visas before and after arriving in Israel. Irena is knowledgeable, reliable and competent lawyer who always had answers to all our questions which made us feel confident that everything would be fine with her assistance. We are now happily living in Israel and are so grateful to have Irena who is a genuinely nice person as our lawyer.
The team at Decker, Pex, Ofir & Co have been awesome to work with in helping our US company establish banking in Israel and in providing counsel for legal needs in Israel. I highly recommend!

European passports are one of the most coveted assets for people willing to live in or frequently travel to the European Union. Most EU passports are considered to be very powerful and easily acknowledged the world over. But there are some clear winners and losers among the European countries too. So, which are the most powerful passports in Europe? How many passports can you have europe? And how does having a powerful European passport helps you? Let’s find out.
The most powerful passports in Europe
Europe has always been at the top of the list of most valued passports in the world. Despite the Covid-19 pandemic bringing global travel to a standstill for some time and changing the rules of international travel as well, Europe continues to bag the top spots in the list.
Countries like Ireland, Switzerland, Germany and France can boast of having the most powerful passports in the European Union for the past many years. But in recent years, countries like Austria, Portugal, Bulgaria, Poland, Lithuania, Greece, and the Netherlands are catching up. Here are some of the most powerful passports in Europe:
The French passport: French passport is considered one of the most powerful passports in Europe and in the world. French citizenship provides the right for individuals to live, move freely, work and study across EU member states. Another advantage is that you can also leverage your French citizenship if you wish to study in Canada. Universities in Quebec prioritise French citizens for admission and subsidise tuition fees. A French passport also enables a visa-free entry to the United States.
The Lithuanian passport: As Lithuania is a member country of the European Union, obtaining a Lithuanian passport can equate to having the most powerful passport in Europe. For many Jews in Israel, obtaining Lithuanian citizenship is easy if they are descendants of citizens of Lithuania before 1940. As many Jews resided in Lithuania prior to World War II, their descendants in the US, Israel and across the world are eligible for a Lithuanian passport.
The Polish passport: If you are an Israeli or an American citizen with Polish roots, you can be the owner of one of the most powerful passports in Europe. Poland joined the EU officially in 2004, and citizenship in this country gives you the rights to vote, live, study and work across 27 member states of the EU.
The Austrian passport: If you are looking to obtain an Austrian passport and are a descendant of a female Holocaust survivor, the good news is that Austria amended its citizenship Act in 2019. Through this, the Austrian passport for descendants becomes more accessible. Another pathway to an Austrian passport is through marrying an Austrian citizen. To be eligible for this route, you need to have been married to the Austrian citizen for five years at a minimum and have a Settlement Permit for a period of six years.
The Dutch passport: If you are a citizen of Switzerland or any other EU/EEA, you can live, work and move freely in the Netherlands and need not report to IND ( Immigration and Naturalization Service). Alternatively, those who have lived in the Netherlands (or other EU countries) for more than five years as citizens can apply for permanent residence and Dutch passport.
Multiple citizenships mean even more freedom to travel internationally. If you hold a passport of more than one nation, it means you are a citizen of those nations. It gives you the freedom to travel to more countries and enjoy the benefits of your different citizenships.
In some cases, to receive a new passport, you may have to give up your citizenship in your original country. But there are some nations that do not demand relinquishing your original passport, and some allow you to trade one passport for another.
Some countries allow general multiple citizenships, that is the citizenship of any other country is accepted. But some nations allow dual citizenship only with a few selected other countries.
There are some EU countries that allow their citizens to hold multiple passports at once to alleviate certain travel restrictions. Some of these countries are Germany, France, Ireland, and Malta. This makes it easier for you to travel when one of your passports is at a consulate for the visa approval process or if you need to apply for another visa while already in a foreign country.
All EU member states can make their own citizenship laws, so the laws are different in different countries. Countries like France, Ireland, Sweden, and Italy allow multiple citizenships without restrictions while Austria, Germany, Spain, and the Netherlands restrict or regulate multiple citizenships. Certain countries like Poland, on the other hand, do not accept multiple citizenships within their borders, whereas Lithuania allows multiple citizenships in exceptional scenarios.
We help Israeli and American citizens apply for and obtain a European passport. Our elaborate assessments and ensure that all your needs are taken into account when planning for European citizenship. Getting citizenship of EU nations like Austria, Portugal or Spain, is now easy with the best solutions offered by our law office.
