      Terry Mott (Mallorca)

      Meeting and appointing Rosa was like a breath of fresh air. Having used several other lawyers in Palma de Mallorca without any success whatsoever, Rosa stepped in to a complicated case in its 7th year and turned it around almost overnight.

      Within months the ball was rolling again and she finalised the case where others had just given up. Rosa always responded to my emails and phone calls and was an absolute pleasure to deal with.

      I will not be using anyone else from now on.

      I did a little bit of research before appointing Rosa to handle our property purchase in Mallorca, but quickly realised I’d made a great decision.

    • Colin Wilson
      Colin Wilson, Australia

      Overall it was great. Rosa always answered all questions asked and provided clear, concise and well explained answers.


      When there was a delay in responding she did offer an apology which was appreciated. Rosa always instilled a sense of confidence that she knew exactly what was going on, what I was asking, and what the applicable law was.


      When not a Spanish local and dealing with her remotely, this provided great comfort in a sensitive matter.

      My situation was complicated because the correct documentation was not done at the time of sale....


      Rosa contacted the purchaser and arranged to receive all the information required to submit to the Spanish authorities.


      Without Rosa, whose understanding of English (which was perfect),I would have had serious problems.We were kept informed at all stages of the process, by phone and e-mail.


      I cannot recommend Rosa to highly,...she was fantastic.

      Thank you Rosa.

      My overall experience with Rosa was a positive one.


      Value for the money? Yes.


      In my opinion, Rosa is a very knowledgeable and professional lawyer, who is able to not only understand the situation at hand, but also suggest different approaches and customized solutions for unique, non-standard situations, which was the case with me.


      And for that I am really happy and grateful to have worked with Rosa, and wish her the very best in the future.

      Rosa was extremely professional and helpful and made the process of buying a property from the UK very simple.


      Not only did she walk us through the Spanish legalities of the purchase but she also helped us get our new home set up with utilities, furniture and even a car purchase. Rosa did everything so that when we arrived we could move straight in.


      Without Rosa’s help it would have taken us months and months to get through the legal system. I would highly recommend her services.

      Simon, England

      I have had many dealings with solicitors (lawyers) both in Spain and the UK

      But I have never found one as easy to deal with that looks entirely after the interest of his client’s as Jose.


      This is a considerable advantage if you are a non-Spanish speaking English man like I am. There is also a considerable advantage as most solicitors in Spain charge the same money so Jose is extremely good value.

      We were extremely happy with the way she acted for us both at the time of our purchase and since on an on-going basis.


      She was professional, highly responsive and careful in her dealings with us. Her grasp of English is fine, anything it lacks is made up for by her enthusiasm and helpfulness. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

      From the outset, Rosa was extremely professional, approachable, efficient and competent. Her level of English is extraordinary, something very much appreciated as it made life easier for me during an inherently difficult time.


      Her correspondence was always relevant, detailed, simply and clearly explained and expressed. Rosa was kindly, matter of fact, calm, patient and always reassuring.

      Her pro-active, intelligent, thoughtful and knowledgeable advice helped very much during a particularly delicate and worrying stage of the process.

      Rosa demonstrated a strong understanding of my legal predicament and provided me with a service that has been unmatched in my attempt to find a solution.


      She was extremely prompt in her response to my emails. I must also note that I have yet to meet an individual so easily approachable, as well as professional.


      I say this with complete honesty, the services provided by Rosa were extremely helpful.


      Certainly worth every penny spent and I intend to enlist her services in the future.


      Jan 05, 2015
    • Graham Shaw
      Graham Shaw, Mallorca

      The level of detail and helpfulness were perfect, maintained contact throughout our negotiation period and had everything in place prior to signing the property deeds at the Notary.

      Returned calls were immediate as the lawyer became available.


      Value for money was also perfect, with costs individually presented with no hidden charges to surprise us.

      I will be recommending this Lawyer to my friends and colleagues.


      Dec 15, 2014
    • P.H
      P.H, Switzerland

      I got immediate responses to any questions I had, this alone would be enough for a good evaluation.


      However, Rosa was also patient and understanding throughout, and went out of her way to make sure I understood everything. I also thought that she was very good value for money.


      Perhaps I would have sometimes liked her to be a little more forceful…but this was probably due to me being emotionally involved in the situation. However, I do believe that she got her way in the end and I was always satisfied with her work!


      Nov 24, 2014
    • Evelyn Lindsay
      Evelyn Lindsay, Aberdeen

      As I am elderly and do not speak Spanish I found the service I received was excellent, everything explained in easy, understandable language and Rosa’s English was fantastic.


      Also the cost was very reasonable as I am only on a state pension. In the future if I need any legal advice I will contact her again.

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

 

Code of Reasonable Fees

Our clients can expect to receive a quotation that is at or below the recommended guideline prices by our local Professional Body.
