About us

photo: Dafna TalmonAttorney Galit Lubetzky holds a LL.B in Law and Communication from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem (2008) and LLM in Public Law from Tel Aviv University at the  joint Executive LL.M program with the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in Chicago (Graduated magna cum laude, 2017). She was admitted to the Israel Bar in 2009 and has been representing clients on behalf of the Ministry of Justice Legal Aid Bureau since 2013.

In 2016, she founded the Galit Lubetzky Law Office. The office promotes human rights and women’s rights via constitutional, administrative, and tort law, selecting the most effective judicial strategy, drawing creatively on a broad range of  available approaches. Lubetzky’s practice represents clients in proceedings that raise complex questions of immigration to Israel, family unification, and humanitarian applications, including work with asylum seekers and residents of the Occupied Territories. She works with clients from the first stages of filing applications through to representation before courts of all instances, from the Tribunal for Regularization of Status and Residence (the Appeals Tribunal),  through to the High Court of Justice. The office also offers partnership agreements for common-law and cohabiting partners and prenuptial agreements.

Lubetzky represents clients in tort cases that combine feminist and gender questions, questions of (absent) state oversight where the state must provide it, and also in cases that evoke issues of discrimination, immigration, and small arms. The office also offers consultation on subjects of journalism, cinema, literature, and media (including online media) and represents clients in legal procedures involving questions of privacy, intellectual property, and slander.

Herstory: After a clerkship with the State Attorney’s office (Civil Department) and at the Knesset Legal Bureau (Committee on the Status of Women and Gender Equality; Constitution, Law, and Justice Committee), Lubetzky worked at the Lieblich-Moser Law Office, which specializes in communication and media law. She later worked at the Smadar Ben-Natan Law Office, where she represented clients in obtaining legal status in Israel, tort claims relating to human rights violations and defense of victims of crime, as well as defamation and libel cases. She has also consulted for the Israeli Directors Guild, the Israeli Writers Guild, and a religious association of asylum seekers; she was involved in shaping public policy, and has co-led the Gun Free Kitchen Tables project.

Services are currently available in Hebrew and in English. When advice and accompaniment are required in other languages, the office may be consulted via an interpreter.

The office operates Sunday through Thursday, 09:00 through 17:30.
