Drink Driving Offences
This service is available across Spain
Who Is This Service For?
Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs normally will constitute an administrative infraction, though in certain cases may result in criminal charges.
The penalties range from fines to confiscation of your driving license to a prison term or community service.
Types Of Offence
If the results obtained from the breathalyser test exceed 0.25 milligrams per litre (0.15 for professional drivers and drivers with less than two year's driving experience), the driver will receive a €500 fine.
Should the test register an amount above 0.5 milligrams (0.3 for professionals and inexperienced drivers) or if the driver has been fined for the same reason in the previous 12 months, the fine doubles to €1,000. The driver will also lose their driving license for a specified period of time.
Criminal charges for driving while under the influence of alcohol in Spain will be pressed against any driver with a blood-alcohol level in excess of 0.60 milligrams per litre, as measured in a breathalyser test. A criminal offence may also be committed if the driver’s faculties are clearly affected by the ingestion of alcohol or drugs affecting the driver's ability to drive - even where the measured rate is below 0.60 milligrams per litre, or indeed if the driver refuses to take a breathalyser test.
The penalties will depend upon the circumstances of the case, if anyone was injured or killed, if damage was done to property, if it is not a first offence etc
There will certainly be a fine and removal of your driving license as well, potentially, as a community service order or a prison term. You will also have a criminal record.
Do not refuse to take a breathalyser test. To do so is an independent criminal offence, for which you will be charged, in addition to the prior offence of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
What Does This Service Consist Of?
- Discussion with an experienced English-speaking criminal lawyer to determine the nature of the charges
- Preparation of the defence strategy
- Negotiation with the public prosecutor
- Representation in court proceedings
Free Support Services Included
When combined with the free and innovative Advocate Abroad support services you can be sure that you are obtaining completely transparent legal services from registered and regulated English-speaking lawyers abroad.These support services include:
- Verification of the regulatory status of your professional.

Albert is an international lawyer based in Barcelona, attending inheritance, divorce and criminal cases for over 20 years. HIs offices are located in the centre of Barcelona. He offers personal legal assistance in English and Spanish.
This summer, my client Albert had a problem with the Catalan Bank Caixa - his mortgage account was blocked, and he lost the ability to pay mortgage instalments.
As a lawyer from Russia, I couldn't solve this problem on my own and turned to lawyers from AA. Maria was the first to respond, and I concluded an agreement with her on providing legal assistance to my client.
As a result, this problem was solved thanks to the highest professionalism and outstanding perseverance of Maria. Both my client Albert and I are completely satisfied with the quality of her work and are deeply grateful to her.
And if in the future I need legal assistance in Spain, I will definitely turn to Maria. [View all G o o g l e Reviews]

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

I would definitely recommend Alvaro without hesitation. He is an asset to the company.
Álvaro was exceptionally helpful and we shall continue to work with him in the future. Highly recommended. Excellent English (fluent). Extremely polite and professional.
Alvaro did an excellent job, I wished I’d used him for my divorce! I will definitely now only use him in future.
Completed in 10 days. Brilliant service!!
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.
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.

Consuelo was extremely helpful in navigating the difficulties the residency system.

Consuelo made everything so straightforward and was always available to answer my questions. She was perfect.
Thank you for the opportunity of giving me to provide feedback about Consuelo, who is a talented and capable lawyer who submitted my Residency application on 31st December a day before Brexit as a British citizen.
My residency was granted kindly by Spanish Authorities on 5th February and despite lack of available appointments, she managed to make an appointment for fingerprints on 5th March and now I am waiting for my TIE card .
I’ll be always grateful for the kind and professional help of Consuelo for helping me through the process and will definitely recommend her to any client. Many thanks!
I had a direct phone call from Consuelo , within 24 hours of my first email contact . Was very clear and explained the next stages really well over the telephone.
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
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.
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.

Francisca is a highly experienced lawyer with 15 years track record assisting English-speaking clients in a number of fields, including property law and has an impressive academic record including Masters Degrees in Family and Criminal Law. Francisca spent five years living in London and has maintained an extremely high level of English to this day.
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.
Francisca has always been very helpful and professional and has gone out of her way to assist me. All very good!
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.
In all departments Francisca was outstanding in every case!
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.
Francisca was very informative and helpful. She handled my divorce professionally and made it easy for me throughout the process.
Highly recommend and reasonable fees. Thank you, Francisca!
Francisca was very informative and attentive to all of my inquiries and concerns. I would definitely be going back to her if needing her services again and would recommend her brilliant services.

We sought advice on a residential lease document. Francisco was very responsive to our initial request for assistance and thereafter.

Throughout Francisco was very approachable and patient as he took us through the intricacies of Spanish bureaucracy!
Francisco is a very passionate individual that takes his position very seriously. I am so incredibly pleased that I was able to find him to help me and that he spoke English as well.
Francisco was and is truly a good man, a good lawyer and a very knowledgeable and personable man. I look forward to enlisting his services in the future. Kind regards to Francisco.
Francisco was very helpful with our enquiries. His level of English was excellent and we were very satisfied with the level of service we received.
Francisco was very responsive, supportive and understanding.
Unfortunately, I had to use another lawyer who has helped me in another case.
I liked the fact that he stayed in constant contact with me which made the transition much smoother.

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 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.
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.
Couldn’t have asked for better service!
Would not hesitate in recommending this lawyer, who is excellent!
Inma was fantastic! She helped me so much and kept in contact throughout the process. I would and will recommend her and your company to everyone in the future.
I cannot thank you enough!

Inma has been outstanding in her provision of legal services. She has been easy to contact (even during the pandemic), provided excellent advice and resolved my legal issues.
It has been a pleasure dealing with Inma and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to other clients.

I’m very satisfied with the service I got!
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
I would like to express my opinion about Inma. She is very helpful , understanding and had excellent communication with me during the process
I would like to thank her sooo much as I am very happy and satisfied with her way of sorting out the issue we approached her for
I will recommend her to everyone who needs any lawyer in Spain.
Thus, massive thanks for her great help and support.
Responsible, understanding, good personal contact. Always finding time for us, very kind and helpful.
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.
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 am very satisfied with the service - recommended!
They understood our needs and were very helpful!
The level of professionalism and approachability was impeccable. Also, Inmaculada’s prompt and thorough communications were greatly appreciated.
I could not have asked for more at such a fair price.
Within hours of contacting Advocate Abroad, Inma was in touch with me.
My case came at a very unexpected and emotional time, however Inma took control of the situation immediately and was the best support I could have hoped for.
She clearly explained each step to me along the way, regularly updated me out of hours and was professional until the end. I felt very safe with my situation in her hands - she really knows her stuff and I wouldn't hesitate to use her services again.
Inma is a very professional person and has been very helpful to me since the set up of the company and all the way through.
Inmaculada was very professional, very helpful and approachable , easy to communicate , pleasant,and her English is fluent.

Jose Antonio is a highly-experienced lawyer in the Alicante area of Spain. With offices in the centre of Alicante Capital, Jose-Antonio has offered expert legal advice for more than 10 years to English-speakers involved in Property transactions and contractual disputes as well as family law, inheritance and business formation.
Jose helped us through every part of the process with speed and efficiency. Because he spoke perfect English he explained everything so that we understood what we were doing. He cleared the way and prepared every part of the process, so there were no hold-ups.
His friendly attitude made us very comfortable and his professional approach made both the purchase and sale of the property smooth and easy. He gave very good value for money and nothing was too much trouble.
I cannot recommend too highly, my lawyer Jose. He is the ultimate professional on every level. An excellent communicator. A lovely, approachable gentleman who is extremely knowledgeable about law.
I have used Jose on several occasions now and I’d happily use him again in the future.
Jose is always very helpful and nothing is a problem. I have used him many times already and will continue to do so.
Jose was always good natured and polite and fully helpful in every respect. I would have no hesitancy in recommending him or to use him again.
José was very easy to contact, by email and phone; he kept me updated whenever anything changed or progress was made. He reassured me many times and was very understanding, which really helped as I was obviously very worried about the situation.
I found Jose to be very approachable and kind, knowledgeable as well and explained everything whenever I had questions (even if they were probably very silly!). Jose also I think was really good value for the level of service he provided.
I'd have no hesitation in recommending him, or using him again, although I sincerely hope I never need to! Definitely great at his job!
Kind and fast replies, good advice and it feels that if I ever need any legal advice in the future I for sure will contact José again.
I am pleased with all contact that I have had .
Jose has provided me with outstanding help and advice over the last ten years.
I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone seeking legal advice in Spain. I have come to regard him as a friend over the period of our acquaintance. His fees are extremely reasonable, and has always replied to my queries within twenty four hours.
I cannot speak more highly of his professionalism and only wish I had been aware of his existence twenty years ago, when I first bought property in Spain.
Jose was always very responsive, understood the problem and clearly explained the costs and benefits of possible solutions and took prompt action to resolve the issue.
1st Class and very professional. A great ambassador for your network.
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.
I'm happy, Thank you.
Jose Antonio is exceptionally professional and methodical in all that he does. He is knowledgeable in all areas of Spanish Law and is always a pleasure to deal with. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
The service provided by Jose is exceptional at all levels.
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.
Jose understood my needs and was able to do all the things that I needed. He was extremely approachable and did everything necessary.
I understood what he was doing and what was required of me to do. I was also very happy with the price paid.
I Found Jose very professional and knowledgeable regarding my divorce proceedings and would gladly recommend him.
I thought he was very helpful and professional, always responded quickly.
His English is really good and all the instructions I received concerning the signing and returning of documents was very clear.
I would readily recommend him.
"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]

Very responsive and reached out to me via phone call to set up a consultation. Answered all my questions and is willing to help.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Very helpful and responsive.
Would highly recomend to others looking to secure a visa in Spain.
Maria was amazing she explained everything and kept us up to date she is a very professional lady and I will use her again and recommend her
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.
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!
Maria was very helpful and sorted my problem within a week, I was very pleased with how much information I was given and the very quick replies to any questions I had.
I’m very happy with the way Maria dealt with everything,I would definitely contact Maria if I ever needed her services again 😃

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.

Rafael graduated in Law from the University of Seville in 1995. He lived in Ireland for more than two years to improve his English language skills and his experience as a lawyer. 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 was very professional in all aspects, he was very polite and understanding and would ensure that you knew all the facts concerning the Spanish legal system.
With his guidance and advice, my particular case had a good conclusion. I was very surprised that the cost of his council was very reasonable and economical considering his experience and knowledge as a lawyer.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any future clients. Thank You, Rafael
Rafael was an enormous help with the purchase of our home. Being new to the country it all seemed extremely complex but Rafael explained the process in such a clear, calm and detailed way that I felt I could place my trust in his abilities which made the whole experience smooth and hassle free.
Rafael is a consummate professional and will highly recommend him to anyone in need of his talent.
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.
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.
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.
Responded excellently to the difficult changes to get my TIE residency. Very professional & approachable. Value for money.
Very happy with the service I received.
Rafael was always available to help and assist me, even if it was a case of me worrying! Which I really appreciated because the process was stressful at times and involved lots of preparation.
Rafael made sure I knew exactly what I had to do. He replied and responded quickly to my messages/calls/emails. He was very knowledgeable and highly organised with a vast experience. He made me feel confident. I will always recommend him. I praise his work highly.
Rafael was incredibly helpful and responsive.
I would highly recommend his services for anyone like me who is having difficulty navigating the Spanish system.
Rafael has provided us with excellent service for us as we relocated to Spain. He guided us through the NIE application and subsequent switch to TIEs. He assisted us through the process of our house purchase and also helped us with our wills.
We found his help invaluable. His approach was friendly and professional throughout. We would recommend him to anyone looking for English speaking legal services.
Rafael was extremely professional when we approached him in a complete panic over a burofax we received in Spanish from a neighbour. He knew exactly what we should do.
He diffused the situation with his knowledge of the law in Spain. The information has been left on file with him should we ever need to refer back in the future.
Michael and Olivia Ashmore
I was extremely happy with Rafael during my case. He always responded promptly to any questions I had. I found both his spoken and written English to be excellent, even with complex legal matters.
He explained any query I had very well and if there was anything I was unsure of he explained thoroughly. I was extremely impressed with the level of professionalism throughout the process together. I would highly recommend Rafael to anyone needing a lawyer in Spain. It was a pleasure to work with him.
Very helpful, especially as English and Spanish law has it's differences and my final document - a testament - required the services of a notary and the final translation.
A pleasure to meet Rafael and to discuss my needs and he made the whole process straightforward with lots of common sense solutions. ***** 5 stars and highly recommended.
Worked with Rafael for a project. He is very professional, efficient and helpful.

Raffaele is a registered lawyer in Barcelona who speaks perfect English, Spanish and Italian. He is an expert in intellectual property, commercial law, property law (buying and selling property), civil law, procedural law, fiscal matters and providing extrajudicial legal advice.
I found the service very helpful and easy to use. It took the fear out of employing a legal service in that it was upfront and transparent and reasonably priced.
Raffaele was very courteous and result-oriented, handled the case with high professionalism
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.
If you need a lawyer who speaks fluent English and Spanish (and Italian) and works on your legal matters professionally and without delay, then I strongly recommend contacting Raffaele.
Very relaxed and not uptight. All very good.
Raffaele was responsive, understanding and polite.
He provided excellent value for money, explaining and providing appropriate solutions in a professional manner all the while ensuring technicalities and possible outcomes were understood.
he is professional in all points mentioned above, I am so happy with dealing with Raffaele, he always gives me the required information.
Raffaele exceeded my expectations and always went the extra mile to assist me with my needs!
Very Satisfied with the service.
Raffaele went out of his way to make sure I solved all my problems in the most cost-effective way possible. He also takes full responsibility for doing a great job and making sure the client is happy.
My lawyer had a very professional and tactful approach to my case and endeavoured in every way to resolve my problem.He's been very polite and patient giving me time to make the right decisions.
Very satisfied with the service provided!
He really listened to my story (all the details about the issue I had), he was always clear about his strategy and never sugarcoated the possible outcome.
I appreciated the fact he was very down-to-earth and presented me with truth about the situation, without trying to give me false hopes.
Always professional I would totally recommend his service.

Rosa was charming, professional, quick to respond, gave us confidence and her fees were fair.
We wouldnt hesitate to recommend Rosa.
Rosa proved herself to be extremely professional, helpful and approachable. I would go as far to say if it were not for her expert advice we would not be in the fortunate position of having recently completed on our property.
We were working with a small budget for Mallorca and it took us 3 years to find the right property with all the right paperwork in place. During that time Rosa was there for us offering advice, explaining the rules and regulations of the Spanish property system even instructing an Architect on our behalf for one property we had initially and possibly fool heartedly agreed.
During Covid Rosa having Power of Attorney meant an inability to travel did not prevent us from completing on our property, within the agreed time frame. Rosa’s written and spoken English is perfect and she always answered emails promptly, she went above and beyond to keep us informed at every stage of the purchase and ensure we understood what was happening and when the funds were expected to be available.
To quote my wife Rosa was more helpful, easier to pay and offered better advice than any solicitor we have had in the U.K.
