    Overall the service provided by Oliver was exceptional.

    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 wh...ile 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.

    Rossana was perfect for our needs.

    Always helpful and supportive, particularly when we were becoming anxious about the continuing Spanish property and inheritance taxes, she always explained how t...hese were calculated.

    We have dealt remotely (email/text/phone) and in face to face meetings and would have no hesitation in future instructions or recommending to others.

    Our lawyer Rossana has really looked after our interests in the most comprehensive way possible.

    As novice property purchasers in a foreign land, she has done everything (including things we could... not imagine as necessary due to our ignorance of local laws, customs & practices) to keep us free from unforseen trouble!

    We have been impressed to such a degree and now have so much confidence in Rossana that we have arranged for her to have ongoing Powers of Attorney, so that she may represent our interests in our absence. She is a most impressive lady!

    I have not the slightest hesitation in recommending her, based on our direct experiences.
