About Yadid Law & Notary
David Yadid, Law and Notary was founded by Adv. David Yadid. Adv. Yadid has been working in the service of holocaust survivors for more than 30 years, and even initiated, in the 1980’s, the project of pensions for academics from the German national insurance. The firm specializes in receiving the entitlements of the elderly and holocaust survivors from national entities and government authorities, in Israel and abroad. The firm’s team of attorneys knows how to work and promote its clients’ best interests in foreign countries with great proficiency in the finer details of the local law, rules, and language.
Another main practice area of the firm is citizenship and immigration. The firm specializes in handling immigration matters and supporting its clients in their applications for Portuguese, Spanish, German, Austrian, Moroccan and Italian citizenships and applying for visas in Portugal, Spain, Cyprus and Greece.
The firm is considered to be a pioneer in the field of issuing Portuguese citizenships for Israeli citizens, and even consulted in 2015 to the Jewish community of Lisbon on its recommendations and suggestions concerning the criteria for citizenship for the Jews expelled from Spain and Portugal, for the reliefs which were eventually incorporated into the law.
