Cases of Alleged Domestic Violence
This service is available across Portugal
Who Is This Service For?
There has been an undeniable increase in incidences of alleged domestic violence in much of the world. Similar to other areas of the criminal law covering assault, it is an area that the law has difficulties dealing with, given that typically, it relies on alternative versions of the facts of the case by the protaganists.
Another situation that English-speakers in particular, who are living or spending time abroad, can find themselves having to deal with, is appearing in the local domestic violence courts after having been involved in heated arguments with their partners in public.
This can be a result of the language barrier when local police get involved, as well, unfortunately, as a result of alcohol having been consumed in many cases.
What Does This Service Consist Of?
- Discussion with an experienced English-speaking criminal defence lawyer to determine the nature of the charges
- Your lawyer will develop a defence strategy based on the facts of the case and the circumstances
- Your lawyer will seek to negotiate with the public prosecutor to have any charges reduced
- Representation in local courts and advice throughout the legal proceedings

I am a Lawyer, working independently for 7 years now. I have experience in family law, property, public deeds, criminal law and general matters. I'm my work I sometimes do translations and certifications of foreign documents. I although have experience in teaching.
Claudia was very helpful in dealing with my queries of dealing with receiving inheritance and drafting POA's for my brother. She invested a lot of additional time trying to understand the needs of the banks in drafting the POA that is needed to show the different banks.
I would definitely use Claudia again for other Portuguese law related matters.
We found Claudia a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. The reason being is that she was competent and helpful at all times. She was efficient without being pushy.
She also worked very logically and systematically making sure everything was achieved in a stress free manner. And she was friendly!
Claudia went to every effort to help with our cases. We first asked her to help us with our property purchase and she was exactly what we needed as we didn't really have a clue what we were doing.
The sale went through absolutely pain-free and we were so happy we asked her to continue on to advise on our residency.
Unfortunately we hit complications but only due to the current global issues, Covid19 & Brexit, So we had to return the the UK. But even during all of that she kept us up to date, well informed and we really felt we had her on our side.
I will be staying in touch with Claudia when we return, I would use her services again and I would (and have) happily recommend her to friends.
Claudia went above and beyond to help us, my partner and I have been extremely happy with her responsiveness, effectiveness in sorting everything for us in a very short time. We have compared the service value, and Claudia's services have been the best value for money, and she was very professional.
Thank you ever so much, we will be return customers.
Continue being awesome!
Claudia is friendly and funny and also very professional. She gave us honest straight answers at all times and advised where needed. Our estate agent behaved very badly and she was calm and measured about this whilst keeping us fully informed.
Claudia has been very professional and has gone above and beyond in assisting in a house purchase. She has been very patient and has always made herself available at the earliest opportunity when questions have arisen.
I couldn't fault her at any point during our business, and will use her again when we look to move to Portugal in the near future.
Very competant and a lovely person too. Very efficient. Very knowledgable.
She made what could have been complicated and stressful into a simple process

I had the pleasure to meet Elsa through Advocate Abroad. She helped me with the purchase of my condo in Lisbon.
Elsa was very efficient, kind and experimented. She reviewed all the property documents and attended the closing with me so she could explain the content of the deed that was, of course written in Portuguese. I would hire Elsa again for my next real estate transaction. [View all G o o g l e Reviews]

Laura is a registered lawyer with the Bar Association of Portugal. Coming from a family background of lawyers, Laura has learned quickly the value of in-depth knowledge and expertise in a restricted number of legal fields. She specialises in matters of property law, family law as well as criminal law and immigration matters.
Laura was great. Of course I was hesitant sending money overseas to someone I didn't know but after speaking to Laura I was at ease.
Laura always responded to my emails and when I informed her that I never received my paperwork in the mail, there were no questions and she sent out more paper special delivery which I received within a week.
If need be I would contact Laura to have work done and will advise any friends to do the same.
One of the most responsive and helpful professionals. Very well versed with the laws. Absolutely most recommended.
Fast and helpful service.
Great service and professionalism.
