About Alon Eizenberg & Co., Law Office
Alon Eizenberg&Co., Law Office is a leading criminal law and white collar offences firm. The firm was founded in 2010 by Adv. Alon Eizenberg, who recorded unprecedented successes and achievements during his professional career, owing to his highly professional and hard work which successfully integrates assertiveness, boldness and creativity, with compassion and high sensitivity for his clients.
Throughout his legal career, Adv. Eizenberg has had the sharpest capability to recognize the case’s weak points through piles of legal materials, and to connect emotionally to each client’s human story. This combination contributes to his ability to make the client’s position accessible for the judges as concisely and reliably as possible, which makes them listen, rather than just hear the clients’ positions. This capability led to the firm’s participation in precedents which are studied in universities and law faculties across Israel.
The firm accompanies clients from the full spectrum of criminal offences, including murder cases, drug trafficking, violence and sexual offences. In addition, the firm specializes in white-collar cases while representing public officials and high-net-worth individuals in bribery, kickbacks, fraud, embezzlement, etc.
Throughout its years of operations, the firm accumulated vast experience both through handling complex and intricate cases which required particularly creative legal thinking, and through “everyday” cases while representing clients on an ongoing and daily basis. Many of the cases that the firm handled were widely publicized in Israel and abroad.
Adv. Alon Eizenberg, the Firm’s Founder and Owner
Following his military service in an elite unit, Eizenberg studied and completed his LL.B. in the College of Management in Rishon LeZion. He interned with the Late Adv. Moshe Israel, who was one of Israel’s top criminal and white collar defense attorneys, who represented, among others Ehud Olmert in the Fictitious Invoices Affair in the Likud, the real estate tycoon David Apple, who was accused of stealing tens of millions of Shekels from the evictees of Ma’abarat Yoseftal in Kfar Saba, and Amnon Safra, one of the defendants of the Holyland Case. Upon completing his internship and his admittance into the bar, Adv. Eizenberg opened his private firm, where he recorded extensive successes.

Selected Recent Cases
The Yonatan Hayelu Case – From Imprisonment for Life to Seven Years
Adv. Eizenberg represented Yonatan Hayelu, who was charged with the murder of Yaron Ayalin, for which he was expected to serve life imprisonment. Eizenberg met the defendant several days after the latter tried to commit suicide, since the police, the prosecution and the court wouldn’t believe him that the deceased sexually abused him, and he saw no way to prove this. Eizenberg convinced him not to sign a 25-year imprisonment plea bargain that was offered to him, and after a resolved and uncompromising legal battle, the court received the defense claims and determined, on the basis of the circumstantial evidence, that the defendant was indeed sexually abused by the deceased. Precedentially, the defendant was released to house arrest (against the position of the probation and prosecution services) and following an appeal to the Supreme Court on grounds of cumulative provocation (which was a legal precedence) he was acquitted from the charge of murder, and instead convicted in manslaughter, so that his sentence was reduced to 12 years. Even after this shortened sentence, Adv. Eizenberg didn’t quit, and continued to fight for Hayelu through signing 62 PMs on an amnesty petition. After a determined struggle, the amnesty petition was finally accepted and Hayelu was released after serving only 7 years. This verdict is studied in law faculties.
The Stefan Mendel Case – A legal drama where the way to justice was opened after 16 years through a very brave decision of the Supreme Court.
Adv. Eizenberg represents Stefan Mandel, a Jewish-Romanian holocaust survivor who became famous across the world as the man who won more than 40 million USD in 14 lottery wins. Mandel has opened in Israel, more than a decade ago, a social venture for purchasing businesses and lands, and was accused of failing to publicize a prospectus by the Securities Authority. Later, while he was residing abroad, he was convicted in absentia and sentenced to 10 months of imprisonment and an international arrest warrant was even issued. Adv. Eizenberg recently submitted a re-trial application and the Supreme Court , headed by Judge Melzar, received a dramatic decision several months ago which reversed the verdict from 16 years ago and enabled his returned to Israel without being arrested.
