Denise McGettrick (CLO)
Denise McGettrick is the Chief Legal Officer of PassRight. She is also the owner of the law firm McGettrick Law PLLC. PassRight provides the technology that powers this website and much of McGettrick Law’s practice. She believes that using PassRight’s technology allows her law firm to more effectively and efficiently serve its clients.
She lives in Texas with her husband and three children, two of which are on the autism spectrum. Her decision to practice immigration law was motivated by her great grandparents, who were Mexican immigrants. She is grateful that her family was able to start over in Texas and wants to help others do the same.
McGettrick attended law school at DePaul University in Chicago, where she represented asylum seekers at DePaul’s immigration clinic. Her time there caused her to move into business immigration and in 2015, she became Board Certified in Immigration and Nationality Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
After working at Shop Immigration, she was offered the position of Chief Legal Officer at PassRight, an opportunity she welcomed due to her keen interest in legal technology. A firm believer that the intersection of law and technology is the future, she feels that law must catch up to technology and wants to be a part of the process of bridging this gap.
McGettrick wants PassRight to be a national brand associated with immigration law services that bring convenience, trust, expertise, empathy and accuracy into one space. She is in awe of the immigrant drive for success despite the fear, anxiety and trepidation felt among them, and wants to help those who wish to start a new life, business or identity in America. “I meet amazing people in my profession and I am better for having interacted with the best and brightest that the world has to offer.”
Liran Rosenfeld (CEO)
Liran Jakob Rosenfeld is the CEO of PassRight and hails from Tel Aviv, Israel. His role is to oversee the execution of the company’s vision by talent recruiting, fundraising, marketing and problem solving.
Rosenfeld created Shop Immigration Inc, a platform for immigration law services aimed at reducing legal fees and processing time. He was inspired by the difficulty he experienced with
the immigration process when he first relocated to the U.S. in 2016 to promote his new startup company, describing the journey as, “baffling, agonizing and costly.”
Rosenfeld’s career began when he opened up a boutique hotel in Buenos Aires, eventually expanding into a network of 3,600 hostels in Latin America. A self-described “passionate serial entrepreneur,” Rosenfeld has founded and sold several businesses in the advertising and hospitality sectors, including Roomixer and Reservations International Holdings.
His mission is to establish PassRight as the biggest software development company and immigration brand in the world, serving b2b companies, attorneys and consumers. With experience and expertise in management, sales, web tech, social media, customer acquisition and retention, Rosenfeld prides himself on taking action. “While everyone talks, I follow up on my dreams,” he said.
Gal Talmor (CTO)
Gal Talmor is the Chief Technology Officer of PassRight and grew up in Tel Aviv, Israel. He is responsible for the R&D team of developers, as well as all technological aspects of the company’s product.
Talmor’s involvement with PassRight stemmed from his own immigration troubles after another company, that was set to sponsor his visa, dropped out for political reasons. His search for an immigration consultation led him to his old friend, PassRight CEO, Liran Rosenfeld. At that time, Rosenfeld was looking to fill the CTO position. Talmor applied and got the job.
Talmor’s career began when he was in high school working as a web developer and content manager for an Israeli gaming company that he admired. He moved on to work as a software engineer at the intelligence unit in the army, taking on the role as team leader of the military police force’s internal website. He eventually achieved his bachelor’s degree in computer sciences, continuing to work for various startups and companies in the fields of cyber security, fin-tech and location mapping, including Trad Air, AVG Technologies and Indegy. Today he focuses on web, AI and Machine Learning technologies.
In his spare time, Talmor enjoys writing code for other open source projects, playing computer games and “other geeky things.” He’s also a music lover, formerly a hobbyist DJ. He wants to grow PassRight into the biggest legal tech company for immigration services, hoping to “bring the archaic legal immigration system into the 21st century.”
