Angela has over 20 years experience as a practising lawyer in Spain. She has assisted English-speaking clients throughout her career in property matters, business law, immigration as we as the areas that so often touch on foreign residents' lives such as family law and inheritance matters.
As well as being very professional, she was also friendly and helpful.
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
Very helpful, professional and value for money.
Angela was very helpful and very quick to come back with any questions I had.
Angela always replied immediately and her clear advice and guidance was so reassuring.
Fantastic customer service when I really needed it.
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!
Angela was amazing with us. We will recommend her to all of our friends and family and also would not hesitate in using her again.
Thank you so much once again Angela. [View all G o o g l e Reviews]
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.
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!
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
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.
Very helpful and professional. Excellent English!
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!
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.
Very satisfied with the service provided. Angela is bilingual and speaks English perfectly.
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 all G o o g l e Reviews]

Inma was a 'Godsend' in moving us through the minefield that is the process of residency applications...mine as a European citizen was fast and very easy, but my wife's application as a UK citizen was complex & very precise.
However, with Inma's help & expertise it was completed. Inma is knowledgable, efficient, helpful, approachable, speaks perfect English (with a slight Scottish twang:-) and has a wonderful sense of humour. We cannot recommend her highly enough & we will use her for all of our legal needs in Spain. Thank-you Inma! [View all G o o g l e Reviews]

Inma and her team were very friendly and professional in helping me get NIE number.
I would highly recommend them and hope to do business with them in future.
Inma helped me to buy a property in the Valencia region. I could not have had someone more trustworthy and helpful. Her English is totally fluent and she had no problem taking the time to read through all the documents and explain everything to me.
I had many questions as it was my first property purchase and she always took the time to explain. She double checked things that didn't seem right which ended up saving me a lot of money, extra work that she noticed and argued for me to save me money.
I am so grateful to her for making this process so much easier and having someone I could trust. I would highly recommend anyone buying in this area to work with her. :) [View all G o o g l e Reviews]
Inma was super in assisting us to acquire the property. Very responsive (frequent calls/email exchanges) and relentless chasing all the loose ends.
A 5 star rating very well deserved and more than pleased to act for further references. [View all G o o g l e Reviews]
Inma was fantastic. She made a very difficult, painful and chaotic process very smooth and quick. I was extremely stressed and anxious about what I needed to achieve but she immediately put my mind at ease, explained exactly what was needed and in the end it was executed exactly as described. Very happy with her help. I would highly recommend. Thank you! [View all G o o g l e Reviews]
As much as the probability was against me to gain a successful defence Inma provided the best and most adequate advice required in order to prepare my defence and representation.
Thanks for your help!
I appreciated Inma's ability to explain and provide appropriate solutions.
Fast response, easy going, kind.
I have already referenced them to my friends. They listened, understood what I was asking for help with, were clear with feedback, answering all questions - being bilingual was very helpful to someone just learning the language - then gave me my options & to the point.
Very professional & approachable. They did what they said they would which inspired trust & reliability.
I have contacted and received legal assistance from Inma and her team on at least 3 occasions including property purchase, Residencia, and general legal advice.
She is very thorough and explains everything well. Probably the quickest responses I have ever had in Spain!

When we have met with Inma we have found that she has a very caring personality. [View all G o o g l e Reviews]
Our lawyer, Inma did a great job with helping us solve a purchase we made with a dishonest car dealer in Spain.
She was very honest with us from the start, always responded on time, and dealt with a very difficult character on the other party and managed to close the case with success.
We highly recommend this service! [View all G o o g l e Reviews]
Inma provided the current, accurate status of the law as it stands with respect to our issues.
Amazing service. Would recommend to everyone.
Inma was a pleasure to deal with, she was available by email and by WhatsApp and she answered all of our questions quickly and thoroughly. 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!

Brilliant communication, really helpful, approachable, solved my problem and professional.
Would use Inma always!
Inma was very helpful and easy to deal with. We only requested Inma's assistance with completing Spanish Will's but Inma also went to the trouble to find out some information regarding university entrance for our daughters and whether or not Brexit had any impact. She has also put me in touch with a tax adviser in relation to my business in Spain.
Inma tried very hard to resolve our situation and I can only commend her professionalism in a difficult situation. She was very sympathetic and determined to obtain a resolution.
We have no hesitation in recommending her for legal assistance and will use her services again, if the need arises.
She helped me lots , and have used her before. Great lawyer, much recommended, thanks again ,and we have on going other jobs
I was extremely pleased with the whole service.
Inma was very helpful and explained everything to me carefully in English, which was very much appreciated, as we only have a very basic grasp of Spanish.
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.

Maria has been a practising solicitor in the Costa del Sol for several years. She provides expert legal guidance in most civil law areas including: Family Law, Property Conveyances, Probate & Wills, Contracts, Traffic Accidents and Immigration matters. Maria speaks fluent English as well as her native Spanish.
"Maria is an experienced English speaking Spanish lawyer with experience in Property law, inheritances and corporate and private banking."
I needed a lawyer since I got in trouble with getting a money refund after cancelling a car reservation due to fraudulent information posted on the internet by the car dealer. I then contacted Advocate Abroad and my case was followed by Maria, one of the lawyers of the team.
Thanks to her action I was able to get back in few days a relevant part of the money and this I consider an absolute success. When dealing with Maria I built the strong opinion that she is a smart, excellent and reliable professional, coming quickly to the point of the matter.
I would absolutely recommend her and Advocate Abroad in the future to friends who could need legal support in Spain, and I would myself contact them again in case of need. [View all G o o g l e Reviews]

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.
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.
Maria was fantastic from start to finish during this process and I can't recommend her highly enough.
Maria quickly ascertained what the issue was and how best to resolve it, and within just over a week from our first engagement she had dealt with my legal concerns and given me some long overdue peace of mind. [View all G o o g l e Reviews]

Miguel has accumulated a great deal of experience practising as a lawyer for more than 16 years. He is an expert in all aspects of commercial and employment law, working extensively with international businesses that have Spanish employees. He appears on the register of civil and employment law mediators and is authorised by the Spanish government to mediate in civil and commercial disputes.
Miguel was fantastic in all respects!
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.
Miguel is very friendly and always ready to help. Always answers the phone or a message. Very polite and rather reliable!
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Miguel in Oviedo helped us during the process of buying a flat in Asturias. He was just brilliant!
Very Satisfied with Miguel's work. He was very helpful and we would definitely use his services again in the future.
We bumped into several bureaucratic hurdles here in Oviedo before we contacted your company. It was a mess. Yet, our lawyer Miguel went the extra mile and bent over backwards to get everything solved for us. We couldn't have had any better lawyer than him. It was great to work with him.

He specialises in civil law, in particular property matters, mortgages, inheritance and family law. He speaks English fluently with a certified Advanced level.
He phoned us in The Netherlands within an hour of my initial message to AA. He was very helpful and generally reassuring. He made the effort to book us a much needed 9.00am Monday morning appointment at very short notice and had everything prepared when we arrived.
We hope to never need a lawyer at short notice in Sevilla again, but if we do, we have one!
Many thanks to AA too for the speedy connecting and convincing website.
Thank you ever so much Rafael for your help, understanding and professionalism. We are grateful!

Rafael in Sevilla helped my husband & I through the EU residency process. He was very proactive with gaining our appointments quickly, accompanying us to all appointments as our Spanish is still a work in progress and keeping us informed of the process from beginning to end.
We would fully recommend Rafael.
My experience with Advocate Abroad and Rafael was excellent. He was most helpful and polite and he did a first class job. I would highly recommend this Company for any legal issues in Spain. Regards Michael. [View all G o o g l e Reviews]
Rafael went out of his way to assist us with numerous immigration-related procedures over the course of the last year. He helped us interpret the rules and regulations, which were often available only in Spanish, and helped us with the requisite interviews at the Foreigners’ Office in Seville.
This was complicated by the numerous delays and closures due to COVID and Rafael was indispensable in helping us obtain meetings and file documents online. He was always available to answer the many questions that crept us during this rather lengthy process and we could not have navigated the numerous steps without his invaluable assistance.
Excellent customer service from start to finish and a very nice person too.
Rafael did a great job informing me and my girlfriend of our options to relocate to Seville from the UK. Clear, friendly, and straight forward process. Thank you.

The best lawyer I've worked with in Spain. After several contacts with other law firms who were inadequate, I was THRILLED with the help I got for my landlord problem from Raffaele at Advocate Abroad.

We had a good service from Raffaele. He was in a tricky position in obtaining timely information from other professionals and the Covid 19 situation made things take longer.
However he kept trying. Also he set a price and stuck to it even though the job was more involved than originally thought. I thought that the fee we paid was fair/good value.
His level of communication with us was good.
Raffaele assisted me with numerous time sensitive legal issues in regards to my residency status in Spain post-Brexit. Not only did he succeed at fixing every issue I presented to him, he also did it all in a timely manner and at a very reasonable cost.
His flexibility in handling legal matters is impressive, and was made even more impressive to have completed it all during this Covid-19 era where normal meetings/ appointments are incredibly hard to organise.
I would recommend him to any of my friends and colleagues, and will seek his legal advice in future matters should it be needed.
Raffaele got in touch very fast, listened carefully and was very supportive of the matter. Thank you !
Raffaele was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. He is also very friendly and his manner puts you at ease straight away. Yes I would use him again and in fact my sister uses his legal services as well.

Very relaxed and not uptight. All very good.
