Customer Reviews

Rhona Goodwin Nov, 16 2022

Highly professional, efficient service. Response to our urgent email almost immediately.

Alvaro was very approachable and helpful with the handling of this case and intercepting everything into English for us.

The service provided was excellent value for money.

Ann Kolita Nov, 10 2022

Found Álvaro excellent at responding to emails, messages or calls. I didn't have to wait at all.

He was very helpful throughout the proceedings and would highly recommend him to other people.

Neil Macfarlane Nov, 03 2022

I had tried to instruct another solicitor to deal with my case. Not helpful, kept fobbing me off. That’s when I turned to Advocate Abroad.

Within a very short space of time, couple of hours, Alvaro contacted me. I explained the situation and he immediately said ‘No problems’ True to his word it was for me NO PROBLEMS.

His communication was always by return, even on a Red Day, which I had completely forgotten about.

He explained everything as we went along. Definitely highly recommended, I have recommended Alvaro to a colleague who is looking to purchase a property in Spain.

Francis Connolly, Birmingham, England Oct, 22 2022

Álvaro personally rang me literally minutes after my online enquiry. I explained my ongoing problems.

He immediately put my mind at rest and explained how he could resolve it. And resolve it he did. Keeping me informed throughout. I am absolutely delighted with his service.

Jose Ortega Oct, 14 2022

Alvaro’s response to my enquiry was very swift and understood extremely well what i requested.

Álvaro was extremely pleasant and helpful, professional, prompt and efficient.

We feel that we have somebody in Álvaro that we can turn to in times of legal difficulty.

Boris Kogut May, 12 2022

The Spanish court system has been slow, but Álvaro has successfully pursued my case for about three years now and has won a judgement in my favor. We still have uncertainty as to the final outcome given that the judgement is in the appeal period, and we still need to collect the funds owed to me.

So far I have been very satisfied with Álvaro's work.

Customer Reviews

Barbara Taylor Sep, 27 2022

As well as being very professional, she was also friendly and helpful.

Jean Lai Chan, Mijas Pueblo Jul, 31 2022

Angela was helpful and caring right from the start. My case was with the British Consulate in Malaga and Angela didn't flinch knowing how difficult if not impossible to deal with a government organisation.

Angela had supported me mentally as well because of the way I was being treated, and I wasn't mentally capable of making any decision for myself. She guided me to have the confidence to face the challenge ahead, and we finished the case with the compensation and result that I wanted.

I will not hesitate to recommend Angela's service to anyone. Thank you Angela, I am grateful for your help and support. Kind regard, Jean

Nigel Lella Jan, 19 2022

Very helpful, professional and value for money.

Angela was very helpful and very quick to come back with any questions I had.

Samantha Baycock, Fuengirola Nov, 24 2021

Angela always replied immediately and her clear advice and guidance was so reassuring.

Fantastic customer service when I really needed it.

Brian Thomas Clapham, Cordoba Nov, 22 2021

Angela is extremely proficient with excellent English, she responds to questions within an hour.

Easily the best lawyer I've ever dealt with both here in Spain & UK.

A very charming lady, thank you Angela!

Marcus Stephan Jul, 05 2021

A highly professional and pragmatic response. In our particular case a range of outcomes was possible and it was refreshing to deal with someone who not only had an in-depth understanding of the law as it applied, but was also able to advise looking at the wider picture and context.

Communication was excellent and I believe that the service provided represented good value for money.

We will certainly continue to ask Angela to represent and act for us in all future legal matters.

Christel Suy, Malaga Apr, 30 2021

Angela is very professional and always available to assist us. Especially when we couldn't come to Spain due to Covid she sorted everything in our name. We are extremely satisfied!

Michael Bates, Fuengirola Mar, 31 2021

Angela’s English is perfect. She did an amazing job and kept me informed all though the process.

I will be recommending her to all my friends both in Spain and those in the UK with interests in Spain. I was happy with the end cost.
I cant praise her enough. Thank you Angela

Julie Heenan, Cordoba Mar, 08 2021

Angela was extremely professional in all her communication with us, and on behalf of us. She had the ability to pre-empt our concerns and was extremely knowledgeable about her subject, which in turn provided us with security that we could trust her and she was acting in our best interest and within the law.
She also showed us kindness and empathy, which we so appreciated.
We were surprised at the cost for her services, we expected so much more having heard stories of other British people seeking Spanish residency and what they were being charged.
We have no hesitation in recommending Angela, and if ever I needed the services of a Lawyer in the future I would not hesitate to contact her. If she wasn’t able to help me herself, I have full confidence that she would help me find the person I needed.

Robert Atkins, Spain Feb, 18 2021

Very helpful and professional. Excellent English!

Joanna Derrick, Cordoba Feb, 18 2021

Angela was very prompt and very clear in all communications. Throughout our residency process the rules kept changing and she stayed on top of what was required for us. She went above and beyond in helping us, she even helped when we ran into obstacles with exchanging our driving licenses. I have already recommended her to three friends who are now working with her, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to more!

Rick Moses, Almodovar del Rio Feb, 18 2021

Angela was always there to help and always answered my questions. Everything went smoothly despite the current climate. I would not hesitate to use her services again or to recommend her. Thank you.

Frederik Otte, Málaga Sep, 25 2020

Very satisfied with the service provided. Angela is bilingual and speaks English perfectly.

Andrew Hales, Fuengirola Oct, 23 2019

We dealt with Angela, and had a superb service - she was efficient, clear, timely and exceptionally helpful. We would recommend this respectable Solicitor who has excellent English.

Trustworthiness is so important, and step by step help was very much appreciated. Thank you Angela of myAdvocate Fuengirola. [View on G o o g l e ]

Consuelo was extremely helpful in navigating the difficulties the residency system. She was always available to fully and comprehensively answer any questions we had, and held our hand through every step of the long process. It is hard to see how she could have done more to help us understand and alleviate any fears or concerns we had.

We will be using Consuelo for any other services we need as I don't think any other company could be more patient and supportive, and we would recommend her to anyone who needs to navigate the residency or visa system. We were very lucky to get such a first-class service from an excellent professional.

The continued emails , were consistent and very helpful . Consuelo dealt with all the stages with a efficient process , that has made the application for the Tourist Licence for my property in Spain very easy. Her persistence with getting the Guardia Civil to issue passwords was impressive , for me to upload information to them as required by law in Spain.

Thank you Regards Brenda Killigrew

Johanna Count, Benidorm Oct, 07 2020

Consuelo explained and took care of everything. She is easy to get in touch with and a pleasure to deal with.

Having to deal with Spanish probate laws and procedures was overwhelming but Consuelo made it so straight forward.

Mark Underhill, Mazarron Sep, 29 2020

We had a legal problem in Spain and the allocated solicitor, Consuelo, helped us solve the issue. Right from the beginning she was extremely professional and understanding of our needs. It was obvious that she knew exactly what was required.

We felt completely at ease and presented very knowledgeable in respect of legal procedures. I would highly recommend the Advocate Abroad service to anyone in a tight spot in need of legal help.

In terms of what could have been improved, maybe time from initial phone call requesting service to client contact could be a bit quicker, but that's the only thing.

He offered a good value for money service & met with us anytime we needed assistance, but did provide most of the information we needed by e-mail (which were all in good quality of our language - English).

I would use Erardo again to do other legal matters & would not go elsewhere e.g. writing our Spanish wills etc. We would recommend him to others if asked.

Stephen Perrie, Scotland Jul, 05 2017

Absolutely first class service. Fast very efficient and kept me informed at every stage. Answered every single e mail even just to be polite sometimes.

Would definitely recommend this man service and his staff. First contact till completion.

Jill Clash, Lanzarote Sep, 13 2016

Found Erardo very helpful and understanding, felt very comfortable talking to him.

Would definitely use his services again. Unfortunately after all the initial paperwork, payments, doctor and court visits the case was unable to go ahead as no-one was able to trace the owner of the premises where the incident occurred.

Customer Reviews

Carole Coke-Glass Mar, 29 2022

Francisca was totally professional and extremely responsive in her understanding and actions, a very effective communicator, with fluent English, and the ability to explain and gain feedback to ensure that we understood each step of the process, the service provided and expectations from her clients.

Francisca remained empathic and provided clear guidance throughout the process. We were made to feel valued and our opinions and thoughts were listened to with patience and care, particularly, as we had never endeavoured to buy a property aboard before and we do not speak Spanish.

Francisca was able to see our point of view, as we ventured into new territory. Her support ensured that we felt confident and in control throughout the purchasing process. Francisca was always open and approachable, and always responded to queries and returned our calls without delay. We cannot praise her hard work enough and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking to purchase a property aboard.

Although always professional, the relationship made as feel that we were dealing with a good friend and it was more just a transactional relationship, Francisca displayed emotional intelligence throughout the whole process.

David Stack, Valencia Jan, 11 2021

Francisca has always been very helpful and professional and has gone out of her way to assist me. All very good!

Christopher Horne, Puçol Oct, 02 2020

I both purchased and sold a property in Spain utilising Francisca's services in both instances. I felt it was essential to use a lawyer as I am from the UK and this was my first experience of buying and selling in Spain and the system, process and tax requirements are very different and I wanted someone experienced and professional to oversee everything and 'hold my hand' through the process.
It seems that most Spaniards do not utilise a lawyer or use an independent property surveyor and the inmobiliaria/estate agent does a huge amount of additional work compared to what they do back home. This combined with the arras (deposit of thousands of Euros paid directly to the seller to 'secure' the property and take it off the market) made me nervous as it was so different to what I was used to in the UK - in some ways it's a lot better system.
Like most reading this review, I did a huge amount of internet research when looking for property to buy in Spain and from experience have found that there are many companies set up by Brits and other non-Spaniards that are looking to take advantage of first time buyers from their native countries by putting up flashy websites and charging exorbitant fees - without exception I found that the Spanish inmobiliaria/estate agent, lawyers, etc. were far more professional, hard working and able to get things done at a fair price. The challenge is, if like me, your Spanish language skills are poor to non-existent - my advice to you is to get used to using both Google Translate and WhatsApp on your mobile phone with a data package that works in Spain as these came to my rescue on multiple occasions and are invaluable.
Francisca's services through both the buying and selling process of my property were exemplary and professional at all times, her fees fair, her communication swift and her level of integrity beyond doubt. Some of Francisca's greatest non-lawyer strengths are her ability to empathise with a non-Spaniard buying property for the fist time in Spain, communicate the system clearly, set the necessary appointments / provide clear directions and generally 'hold your hand' through the process and sooth your nerves when necessary.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Francisca to anyone requiring the legal services (not just buying/selling property) of a lawyer in Spain and will certainly approach her again should I need such services again. It is rare to find a professional of this level of integrity in any industry or country.
We need more clones of Francisca across Spain! :-). From my experience, her services and professionalism cannot be improved upon.

Peter Marsh, Gandia Aug, 07 2019

In all departments Francisca was outstanding in every case!

Mark Fairley, Gandia Apr, 30 2019

Francisca was extremely professional, great communication throughout the purchasing process.

Phoned or emailed me to keep me updated and worked to a good timescale for completion. Prepared well for the notary and simplified the answers on any questions or issues that occurred.

I would highly recommend Francisca for anyone from the U.K wishing to purchase property in Spain.

She takes away any stress or fear that can happen from entering the unknown legal practice in Spain. I would definitely use Francisca again for legal service, on any future issue or purchasing of property.

She provided good value for service and would be a future person to go to, for any expat in the Spanish community.

Wayne, Valencia Mar, 16 2019

Francisca was very informative and helpful. She handled my divorce professionally and made it easy for me throughout the process.

The service was perfect, and we are very happy with the whole process.

John Hipper, Zaragoza Dec, 03 2019

Francisco was recommended to me by friends in Spain after they had a very positive experience with him. He was an excellent contact for me while I was in the process of buying a house in Spain.

It was an overwhelming experience buying from Canada, particularly because of the language barrier and the time difference, but Francisco did a fantastic job of explaining to me everything about the forms, taxes and the local processes.

He was helpful, friendly and informative. When I arrived in Spain to complete the purchase, I felt much more confident knowing that I had his advice and assistance, he even offered to help me fix a problem with my bank accounts when I didn't understand what was happening (language).

I would have no hesitation using his services again and highly recommend him to anyone in need of his assistance. I was 100% happy.

Eamonn Gomez, Madrid Sep, 29 2019

She was happy to deal with our estate agent, the other solicitor, the bank and the notary in our behalf and went above her duties to help with other things like with the community of owners in our urbanisation.

She gave a clear breakdown of costs, which helped with our budgeting, she was friendly and met us personally when we came to Spain to make sure all of our questions were answered before we began our purchase!

I would have no hesitation in using her services again for any legal matter in Spain. Inma was professional, friendly, extremely thorough during our purchase process, always contactable and explained the whole process to myself and my husband patiently and in excellent English ( las we don’t speak any Spanish at all). 5 star service!

She worked with an engineer to look at our project for a small campsite and we were very impressed with the service provided, and we are only sorry that we couldn't proceed with our plans at this time.

However if we do decide to go ahead I would have no hesitation in contacting Inma again, or indeed for any other legal advice or help.

Monika Hartmann, Torrevieja Jun, 29 2021

As I didn't know anyone in the area, I found Inma trough the internet search engine. It can be scary to buy a property abroad in current situation without even being able to see it yourself. So I was incredibly lucky to come across Inma who went above and beyond to assist me with every step of the purchase.

Her additional checks and help reassured me that the property is safe to buy. Not knowing the systems in Spain can make the property purchase challenging, therefore it's incredibly important to have the right solicitor. She advised me on everything that needed doing and I am so incredibly grateful for her professional work.

I would recommend Inma 100% to anyone considering using her services and happy to provide further feedback if anyone is not reassured by this.

Confident, articulate, concise & polite. I've used eleven 'abogados' to date, all pale behind Jose. One case I had lasted 12 years ! So I do believe that I know a little concerning the lugubrious trade today. The Best Rise to the Surface.

Stephen McCool, UK Jul, 29 2020

José was attentive and sympathetic throughout in his dealings with my brother (in Australia) and me (in the UK).

Ours was a problematical case which involved José making contact with a Spanish notary and subsequently applying for NIEs for us and acting Power of Attorney. After this he was involved in protracted negotiations on our behalf with a particularly unhelpful Spanish bank in the matter of inheritance.

He was a calming influence when needed and never less than professional. He kept us fully informed at all times.

Very responsive and reached out to me via phone call to set up a consultation. Answered all my questions and is willing to help.

Ali Jul, 25 2022

This was quite the experience that an expatriate who does not speak the language needs – which made me feel less of a stranger and more like at home.

Maria explained the process and procedure with clarity, and she always kept me well-informed till I got through this eventually.

Thank you, Maria, for the great work and I wish you best of luck and success in your professional endeavors.

Jett Smith Jul, 06 2022

Firstly, I was pleasantly surprised how quickly I was contacted and given an appointment. In our very first meeting, it was apparent that Maria is not only knowledgeable and professional, but she is obviously a very caring person.

For the first time in several months of dealing with my Residencia problem, I felt relaxed and positive that she would be successful. She kept me informed on every issue and what to expect. I cannot properly express the relief I had when she informed me that my application was approved, and stayed in contact right up to the day I received my new TIE card.

Thank you for connecting me with Maria. You are very lucky to have her on your team.

Victor Jun, 16 2022

Maria gave a comprehensive breakdown of what her service entailed, including elaborating on other alternatives.

She was quick on delivery and communicated clearly. Overall, this was a satisfactory service.

Agata Pawlik Jun, 09 2022

Thanks to Maria-Jose's professionalism and very quick reaction, I was able to make very efficiently my arrangements. It was also a pleasure to meet her - a very kind and helpful person.

Her English proficiency impeccable.

Thank you again! Appreciate all the help.

Maria was fantastic. So glad I found her!

Always there when I needed her, she always called back afterwards, if she was busy with another client.

Malcolm Shaw Mar, 07 2022

Excellent service, very quick to explain all procedures and possible outcomes. Once Maria began she was extremely professional and thorough with clear communication at every stage.

The problem was dealt with in a very short time, I could not ask for better or more professional service.

Eamonn Kiely Feb, 22 2022

Hello. She was very professional and if I emailed she contacted me back immediately.

She was very helpful and I will use her services again in the future.

Elzbieta Brajer, Murcia City Nov, 19 2021

Maria is very professional and very helpful. She has helped me with problems caused by another lawyer and. when I confused the time of the appointment, she was very understanding and accommodating in making another appointment.

I would definitely recommend her services to anyone.

Norena Von Hartitzsch, Murcia Dec, 15 2020

Maria was extremely quick at responding, patient and understanding of my many questions, gave clear easy to understand replies, and went out of her way to help me.

I eventually decided not to proceed with a court case but will definitely be contacting María in the future about other legal issues.

Paul Dowler, Murcia Mar, 25 2020

I cannot speak highly enough of the professional level of service afforded to me by Maria-Jose.
The speed of reply to enquiries was excellent as was the advice.
I will, without question utilise the services provided by Maria once again, should I have the requirement for legal assistance within Spain.
Thank you Maria!

John Behr, Oviedo Feb, 02 2022

Miguel was fantastic in all respects!

Jo Helmuth Dec, 12 2021

Miguel helped me buying a property in Pantin, A Coruna.

Miguel is very professional, pro-active, and diligent. He structured the process from beginning to end. He was very helpful in also giving guidance in situations where I had to make decision.

On top of doing important legal research, preparing paperwork and organizing local contractors, he also conducted all negotiations with the seller and bank.

Since I had no prior experience in any of the business we did together, do not speak Spanish and have no knowledge of local customs, all this was absolutely crucial to the success.

Finally, Miguel is a very friendly person and I genuinely enjoyed the interaction.

Anns Pavlova, Oviedo Nov, 18 2021

Miguel is very friendly and always ready to help. Always answers the phone or a message. Very polite and rather reliable!

Angie Nicos, Galicia May, 05 2021

Miguel could not have been any better, he was instantly responsive with any form of contact whether it be email or WhatsApp he was always there to help and advise.

He is a very calm understanding person with excellent communication skills and very supportive and kind. I highly recommend him, and will always use his services even though I’m now at the other end of Spain.

He is a great person and a highly professional lawyer, he got what I wanted which was not an easy achievement, and considering the huge amount of time he dedicated to my case he is excellent value for money. I am very grateful and thankful to him and all his work.

Richard Mintern, Oviedo May, 03 2021

We were very happy with the service from Miguel. We found him always reliable and professional, always quick to respond, understood what we wanted.

We had some difficulties during the process due to Brexit but he worked his way through them and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. We intend to ask him to represent us when we buy a house in Spain

Ben Cuppello, Oviedo May, 27 2020

Miguel provided a faultless service throughout the purchase of our property in Oviedo.

Always responsive, providing excellent advice and guidance and prepared to go above and beyond to help us on numerous occasions. I could not recommend him highly enough.

Brian Berman, Oviedo Mar, 11 2020

We were very have happy with the level of service provided by Miguel, he went above and beyond to make sure that everything was understood by us and clear.

Using him made us realise that buying aboard was not straight forward and with his help opened doors which we would have struggled with. He was always available to us day and night ( even at weekends) and would respond to any question with either the answer or information of how to get it. He kept us informed at each and ever stage of our purchase. He was a real gentleman and we were very proud and honoured to have met such a lovely man.

He is a great example of how a person in his position should operate with his clients and we can not thank him enough.

Pavel Zaytsev, Oviedo Mar, 11 2020

Miguel helped our company a lot.

He deeply investigated the contract then provided us a reasonable set of recommendations how to proceed with the counterparty.

The case is going to the end in a couple of weeks, finally he could able to defend our position as much as possible. We will definitely use Miguel for creating future contracts.

Chris Ealand, Oviedo Nov, 27 2019

I am so satisfied and impressed by the the blend of professionalism and humanity Miguel has shown me. He has earned my complete trust in all matters.

He keeps in contact and replies quickly and even on weekends. Plus has a wonderful feel for his clients as to their needs. I cannot thank him enough for all his help.

Leigh Hossbach, Oviedo Aug, 17 2019

I would wholly recommend Miguel to anybody contemplating a house purchase in the Asturias area of Spain. His pricing was competitive and adapted to my particular requirements.

He consulted with other professionals (including the council) to help determine the expansion and future building possibilities of the land. He also undertook the necessary checks to establish there was no outstanding debt tied to the property.

Compared to UK solicitors Miguel was very much more approachable and would always respond to my queries and deliver frequent progress reports at any time of the day including weekends.

Given the complexity of the Spanish notary system it is essential you have a local solicitor who knows all the variations associated with the Asturian conveyancing system to guide you towards a successful outcome.

Even though I had a reasonable understanding of Spanish Miguel's excellent written and spoken English proved invaluable at all stages of the conveyancing process in particular the final signing of the deeds. Well done Miguel and many thanks for all your help!

Daphne Zargar, Detroit, USA Jul, 20 2019

Miguel was awesome! Super responsive, extended my knowledge and put me totally at ease through the process of buying a house in Galicia.

I felt my interests were put first in the process and protected and would definitely recommend Miguel with full confidence.

Daniel Spitzhorn, Spain Aug, 14 2018

Miguel in Oviedo helped us during the process of buying a flat in Asturias. He was just brilliant!

Nick Nicolaou, Oviedo Feb, 20 2018

Very Satisfied with Miguel's work. He was very helpful and we would definitely use his services again in the future.

T.D., Los Cristianos Oct, 09 2021

Oliver was a true professional, both before the appointment date on the actual day. Very calm, reassuring, and I always felt in safe hands with a trustworthy approach. I'd highly recommend Oliver to anyone in the Canary Islands.

He gave several interviews before the date, going through many questions and also providing advice, all excellent without ever feeling like there was a limit on time, he just continued until everything was dealt with.

His investigation regarding the case was superb, he had everything covered. And the result on the day was the best possible outcome for me. 100% rating.

Jade Hewitt, Los Cristianos Aug, 26 2021

Oliver was very helpful and very quick to respond when messaging and calling. He made me feel at ease and comfortable when discussing private matters. Would highly recommend.

My mother and I couldn't of asked for more from him as he sorted out our family affairs. His attitude, attention to detail and promptness while helping us were second to none.

His English is top notch and his way of explaining and or guiding you through what needs to be done makes the whole experience easier than expected.

We'd recommend Oliver to anyone in need of his expertise while dealing with issues in Tenerife.

Customer Reviews

Katie Langrick, Barcelona Nov, 04 2021

Oscar was great! Really impressed!!

Kathy Clements, Barcelona Mar, 24 2021

We contacted Oscar to check a lease for a rented property we were interested in. The landlord was in a hurry for us to sign it. Oscar contacted us very quickly the same day and pointed out many aspects of the lease that needed further enquiries. He also arranged to check who owned the property with the land registry and check the landlords business registration was legit. The matter was concluded within 48 hours. Brilliant service.

We were impressed with the speed and professionalism shown by Oscar who spoke very good English. We will definitely go back to Oscar for all our Spanish legal enquiries and future property leases/purchase.

The service was very simple to use, good value and quick. Perfect.

Huge thanks to Oscar for such a great job undertaken with a calm, professional and reassuring manner.

Leila S., Barcelona Jan, 19 2021

Oscar is a very knowledgeable and professional lawyer. He always responded promptly and patiently to my many questions. I can easily say that without him as my lawyer, I wouldn’t have been able to purchase my flat, so I am extremely happy that he took on my case and I’m very grateful to him.

The process of buying a flat turned out to be very complicated due to various reasons, and we encountered problems at every stage of the procedure. However, Oscar went out of his way and proactively resolved every single issue along the way. He kept me fully informed and was fully open and honest with me, without sugarcoating any issues - something I truly appreciated. Thanks to his professional and kind attitude, and consequently my trust in him, I even managed to stay relatively calm despite all the setbacks.

I would definitely go back to him if I ever needed any legal help and would highly recommend him to others, without any doubt!
All was perfect!

Niklas Goeransson, Barcelona Jul, 21 2020

We are very happy with our meeting with Oscar, very understanding and professional, and had smart solutions.

Hanna Diamond, Barcelona Jul, 05 2020

Oscar was extremely responsive answering emails very quickly and he was patient in dealing with what was quite a sensitive and difficult situation relating to one of Advocate Abroad's former colleagues who had not been professional.

I was very pleased with his work and would recommend him to anyone. I will certainly ask for his help again if ever the need arises.

James Lassegard Mar, 31 2020

My lawyer was a very effective attorney. He listened to me and could give me good advice on what legal actions to pursue. He answered my questions regarding the case and explained details so I could understand better. We did everything by text and e-mail and that seemed rather efficient.

It would have been nice to have met once, and I had to wait sometimes for a response from him, but I know Mr. Vaello is very busy with his work.

Simon Birch, Spain, Barcelona Jan, 17 2020

Having been in Barcelona for only six months, we ran into a problem with a local landlord and needed swift legal advice. I duly searched the internet and decided to plump for Advocate Abroad where upon I spoke to Oscar. Look no further. He was immediately courteous, polite, very understanding, and extremely professional. Above all, he was patient, listened precisely to what I had to say before he gave me his professional opinion of where I stood from a legal point of view. His command of the English language was faultless to the point where I felt that I could have been speaking to a native English speaker.
As to the subject matter, within a 30 minute phone call I understood exactly where I stood from a Spanish legal point of view, acted accordingly, and the problem was successfully dealt with. And probably the nicest touch of all, once once the matter was resolved having followed his advice, and with no further advantage to either himself or Advocate Abroad, he had the courtesy and kindness to ring me personally to see how I had gone on.
Thank you Oscar. Outstanding (not a word I use often) !!!
 

Sjors de Wildt, Barcelona Oct, 30 2019

Oscar helped us through the process of buying our family home in Alella Barcelona. He advised and informed as well as reviewing the contracts and doing checks on liabilities, registrations etc.

We are very happy with Oscars work. Easy to communicate with, available for questions and not shy to give you his opinion. Was a pleasure to work with you and we will make sure to stay in touch for any future legal advice we may need.

Richard Day, Barcelona Sep, 17 2019

Excellent customer service and good legal advice. Oscar always returns calls and messages promptly, even when he was on holiday! He is polite and patient.

I am very happy with the services provided by Advocate Abroad and especially Oscars work. All at reasonable cost.
