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!May 28, 2019
- 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 noneMay 24, 2019
