      Testimonials for Carlos
      • Victoria
        Victoria, Lisbon

        Carlos was extremely helpful at all times. When everyone else (other lawyers) told me I had to wait in order to have my fiscal number in Portugal, Carlos go it for me in two days.


        He always went one step further and not only did the job, but also gave me very helpful tips and suggestions and reviewed my rental contract.


        Working with Carlos I felt safe, secure, and in the best hands.


        I'll definitely recommend him to my friends.
