o-1 approval secured for rotem malach, educator, lecturer and specialist in israeli judicial advocacy

Managing Partner Michael Wildes is pleased to announce that Wildes & Weinberg P.C. has secured O-1 Extraordinary Ability visa classification on behalf of Mr. Rotem Malach, an expert educator, lecturer and specialist in Israeli judicial advocacy.

In an illustrious career, Rotem Malach has established himself as an individual of extraordinary ability in his field. After starting his career as a lawyer, he then pivoted to become a successful teacher, having won the Teacher of the Country award in Israel. Following his work as a teacher, Rotem began developing educational programs and trainings for other teachers, and then developed his own lectures and a booklet on Judicial Advocacy. He has lectured at some of the most prominent organizations, universities and educational institutions internationally. For the last several years, Rotem has worked with the World Zionist Organization (WZO), first in Germany and then in the United States. In the last few years, he also co-founded a community initiative called Let’s Start Davening (or “LSD”) which is a way to bring Jews of all backgrounds together. The LSD communities have grown significantly and have spread throughout several cities and countries around the world. We look forward to watching Rotem’s successful career continue in the United States!

In order to qualify for an O-1 visa, which allows individuals of extraordinary ability in the arts, sciences, athletics, education or business to live and work in the United States, a foreign national must provide adequate documentation to demonstrate that he/she has sustained national or international acclaim in their field.

In addition, the individual must provide substantial evidence to prove that he/she meets three of the evidence categories defined by statute, as well as a written advisory opinion from a labor union or relevant peer group. The O-1 visa applicant must also show that he/she has an offer of employment in the United States to work in his/her field of expertise (or several offers of employment from multiple sources, along with a third-party Agent to petition on the individual’s behalf and connect him/her to the multiple employers).
