About Cohen, Decker, Pex & Brosh – Law Office

Cohen, Decker, Pex & Brosh (CDBP) is a leading law firm, specializing in international immigration and relocation, helping clients acquire citizenship, visas, and foreign passports. In addition, the firm focuses on practice areas such as real estate, civil-commercial law, administrative and constitutional law, family law, and labor law, among others.

The founding partners, four Israeli lawyers who hold foreign citizenships, speak various languages, maintain legal ex-pertise in a variety of fields and can provide clients with a one-stop-shop for comprehensive and diverse legal services.

CDBP has two branches – one in Jerusalem and one in Tel Aviv. The office also provides broad and varied legal services to clients throughout the country.

Expertise in Immigrations and Citizenships

CDPB is renowned for its expertise in the field of immigration; its international team specializes, inter alia, in represent-ing Israelis who wish to immigrate to the U.S., Canada and the European Union, alongside foreign residents who wish to immigrate to Israel on grounds of The Law of Return, family reunifications, work visas and formalizing legal status for foreign spouses. Regarding emigration from Israel, the firm represents its clients with foreign immigration authorities such as the USCIS and IRCC, and various embassies and consulates. The firm also represents foreign residents who wish to make Aliya or to immigrate to Israel vis-à-vis the Ministry of Interior and courts of all levels in all aspects of ar-ranging legal status in Israel.

Foreign Passport Based on Family Ties, Genealogy, or Monetary Investment

The firm helps its clients obtain passports and citizenships in several European Union countries. Many Israelis are enti-tled to European passports based on descent. Occasionally, a genealogical report is required to prove the family ori-gins. CDPB works with expert genealogists to verify the eligibility for a foreign passport, prior to filing the official pro-ceedings. Israelis who wish to obtain foreign passports but are ineligible to do so on a family origin basis, can receive passports in many countries worldwide on the basis of investment in the local economy. The firm works with local law-yers in order to help the clients in the proceedings for obtaining foreign passports on the basis of monetary invest-ment. 

Premium Legal Services

In addition to its specialization in immigration and citizenship, CDPB provides clients throughout Israel with additional premium-level legal services, in fields such as commercial law, contracts, real estate, family law, labor law, corporate law, taxation and litigation at all of the courts and tribunals in Israel.

The Value of Transparency

In CDPB, lawyers believe in making the world a better place. The firm’s experienced and professional team has pa-tience, consistency, legal proficiency, and longstanding experience, providing every case with the attention it deserves. The firm emphasizes transparency and working in full cooperation with the clients, thus enabling them to make the most accurate decisions for their business needs.
