      Testimonials for Alvaro
      • Tim Rowland
        Tim Rowland, Estepona

        Alvaro was friendly, professional and had great subject knowledge.


        Unlike other lawyers that we approached he was more than happy to share his knowledge over the phone or via email. Many wanted to be paid for every second you spoke to them.


        This personal and friendly service definitely creates a strong degree of trust.

      • Maurice Robinson
        Maurice Robinson, Fuengirola

        Alvaro took immediate action on our first visit, getting straight on the phone to Trafico in Malaga in order to register us to change our driving licences before the deadline date of 31st January.


        He also accompanied us to Fuengirola National Police to apply for our Residencia Green Card on the 30th of January. The lady processing us was unsure of a particular point and was unsure about one small point. Alvaro solved this by insisting that she accompanied him to her Bosses office and immediately solved the problem. Had Alvaro not been with us and the fact that our Spanish is not very good there would have had our application rejected.


        His proactive role cannot be faulted and in fact we have already recommended him to our Insurance broker who intends to use him.

        Maurice and Jill Robinson.

        Alvaro kept in contact with me right from the date that I first communicated with him regarding my Intention to seek Residence Permit to reside in Spain.


        I regard his fee structure very competitive and reasonable and he made appointments for me with Insurance Agencies in order to fulfil the health insurance requirements for Spain--when we have committed to pursue our legal status here in Spain we will instruct his Service to act on our behalf.

        Alvaro is brilliant.


        He comes across very professional and friendly,nothing too much trouble.


        As I was unable to go to Spain initially all communication was via phone and was put at ease straight away as he understood exactly what was required to deal with my case, and all went exceptionally well. I was able to meet Alvaro in August to pass over documents required and made me very welcome.


        I have been so pleased with everything I have now engaged him on a further instruction on our property in Torrenueva..

        It is very difficult to find a good Spanish lawyer and this law firm, has set the standard very high.


        I sent them an email and within an hour someone called me and got on my case. Álvaro, was a shark and he got the job done. No waiting, no bs, straight to the point.


        As an American EXPAT it is very important not to be manipulated by the Spanish Court system. He showed me some amazing loopholes and now, things are going great!

        Andy and Diane Heston, Fuengirola

        We have recently had to employ the services of a lawyer, to deal with a very serious and distressing problem. We found Alvero and made a phone call to him ,within seconds of speaking to him he proved to be the lawyer to represent us.


        His knowledge of our particular problem was in depth and precise he listened carefully and gave us really sound and honest advice. His professionalism in handling our case has been impressive to say the least but he has also remained sympathetic and constantly kept us up to date with everything he has been doing at every stage.


        This has helped to minimize the stress at this extremely stressful time I would have no hesitation in recommending Alvero. His professionalism and whole attitude towards his clients is second to none

        He was consistent in all communication and very informative.


        To improve the service I would suggest to provide a formal summary document of all legal services and formality checks carried out on the property purchase process, (as done in the UK) as a final overall document given to the client.

Arrest Warrant Check

Who is this Service for?

You may be concerned that a previous incident – which often occurred several years ago – may have left you vulnerable to arrest, if travelling to that particular country again. Great distress can follow if an arrest takes place at an airport, causing significant inconvenience and embarrassment if travelling for work or family related reasons.

Advocate abroad has assisted many clients in this position, even those who may not remember their file number, nor the court that sentenced them. We investigate the legal proceedings that took place and provide a court bank account number for payment of any outstanding fines or penalties so you can travel to the country freely and without being worried about potential detention by the border police. 

What does this service consist of?

  • Initial consultation to determine the specifics of the original incident
  • Forwarding of a power of attorney for legalisation in your country (if required)
  • Checking with local courts and/or police authorities to confirm if arrest warrant issued or if matter is lapsed and travel is safe.

Code of Reasonable Fees

Our clients can expect to receive a quotation that is at or below the recommended guideline prices by our local Professional Body.

Free Support Services Included
