      Martha Kimes, Scottsdale, Arizona USA

      Francisco was incredibly responsive (and quick).


      Unlike American attorneys (and I know, because I am one), he didn't even bill me for a few follow-up emails/calls that he made on my behalf which he easily could have done.


      I was supremely happy with his legal services.

      JP, Ireland

      From the outset, Rosa clearly explained the services.


      Buying a property abroad is a daunting experience but she made it very easy to understand. Anything that Rosa said she would do/carry out was done immediately. The whole process was carried out efficiently, effectively and without delays.


      Without having met Rosa personally, her whole approach was friendly, professional and helpful. Any questions we had were answered promptly. We would highly recommend Rosa to any prospective clients.


      When we finally met Rosa in person, she was lovely. We would have no hesitation in recommending Rosa.

      Mr KJB, Cordoba

      Francisco is still finalising some business for us but we are happy to give feedback now. He has provided us with the highest level of legal advice and made the whole process relatively easy for us and without undue stress.


      He was quick to respond and gave his advice in a very logical way and got to the point without fuss. His conversational and written English is first class!


      He carried his authority very professionally especially when having to deal with some difficult people (not us!) and he was able to bring the matter to a successful conclusion within a few weeks as opposed to many months had we done it alone.


      We could not have wished for a better lawyer to take us through a complicated process.


      Thank you Francisco!

      We couldn't have hoped for better lawyer than Mr Francisco. He is always responsive, always available and approachable, with a remarkable ability to explain and provide legal solution. But more important, he strikes me as a very good and genuine person, honest and very competent.


      I can say without a doubt in my mind that Mr Francisco stand well above all these lawyers.

      It was a pleasure to deal with Francisco. He spoke excellent English. He was professional and courteous at all times, and responded to any queries I had by return, taking time to explain complicated legal procedure in a manner I could understand.


      For the work Francisco did, his charges were good value for money. I would recommend his services without hesitation.

      What I liked about this service: Value for money.


      The level of professionalism and excellence in service was not compromised in the reasonably low fee charged for the service.


      All details were explained in a simple format that an ordinary citizen could understand, sparing the bureaucratic procedure that only lawyers can understand.

    • Michael Rieger-Goroncy
      Michael Rieger-Goroncy, Munich

      Our lawyer (Francisco) was very responsive. In a complex matter it needed some additional explanation via email until he fully understood what we were talking about, but then he understood the case and gave us very good and helpful advice.


      In the end he recommended not to proceed with the case which we followed. It was absolutely good value for the money we paid.

      Francisco provided a service to me not just as a client but also as though he was helping a family member.


      His friendliness, professionalism, sincerety and many more qualities is something I am yet to find in a lawyer or any other professional. I can’t thank him enough for his excellent service.

      We would definitely use their services again whenever necessary.

Contested Will

Who is this Service for?

Contesting a Will can be fraught with difficulty - not to mention emotion - given that an individual may likely be asserting a right to inherit against another family member. The ability to contest a Will depends very much on the circumstances of the case and the applicable law.

This becomes more complex once again when considered in an international context. There may be conflicting jurisprudence as to which laws apply, nevermind what those laws actually state. Often the grounds for varying a Will would relate to undue influence on the intestator by a beneficiary named in the Will though in European jurisdictions, a child of the deceased may have a right to a portion of the estate in a system known as forced heirs, and any failure to inherit the minimum portion assigned by law, could give rise to a right to contest the Will.

 What does this service consist of?

  • Initial consultation with a specialist lawyer to determine your rights under national and/or international law to contest a Will
  • Communication with other interested parties and relevant authorities on your behalf to have the terms of the Will changed
  • Representation in legal proceedings where required to ensure a variation of the terms of the Will and the registration of rightful interests in the estate
