      • Dave Naylor
        Dave Naylor, Fuengirola

        Angela was extremely friendly and helpful in a difficult situation.

        She quickly understood our circumstances and had prepared all the appropriate paperwork in both English and Spanish and prepared the Notary by the time we arrived for our appointment.

        Unfortunately, due to a change in circumstance on our part, we were unable to follow the process through to completion but should circumstances change, or any other legal matters arise, we will definitely ask for her assistance once again.

        We would happily use her services again. Five stars!

      • Martha Kimes
        Martha Kimes, Scottsdale, Arizona USA

        Francisco was incredibly responsive (and quick).

        Unlike American attorneys (and I know, because I am one), he didn't even bill me for a few follow-up emails/calls that he made on my behalf which he easily could have done.

        I was supremely happy with his legal services.

      • JP
        JP, Ireland

        From the outset, Rosa clearly explained the services.

        Buying a property abroad is a daunting experience but she made it very easy to understand. Anything that Rosa said she would do/carry out was done immediately. The whole process was carried out efficiently, effectively and without delays.

        Without having met Rosa personally, her whole approach was friendly, professional and helpful. Any questions we had were answered promptly. We would highly recommend Rosa to any prospective clients.

        When we finally met Rosa in person, she was lovely. We would have no hesitation in recommending Rosa.

      • Mr KJB
        Mr KJB, Cordoba

        Francisco is still finalising some business for us but we are happy to give feedback now. He has provided us with the highest level of legal advice and made the whole process relatively easy for us and without undue stress.

        He was quick to respond and gave his advice in a very logical way and got to the point without fuss. His conversational and written English is first class!

        He carried his authority very professionally especially when having to deal with some difficult people (not us!) and he was able to bring the matter to a successful conclusion within a few weeks as opposed to many months had we done it alone.

        We could not have wished for a better lawyer to take us through a complicated process.

        Thank you Francisco!

        We couldn't have hoped for better lawyer than Mr Francisco. He is always responsive, always available and approachable, with a remarkable ability to explain and provide legal solution. But more important, he strikes me as a very good and genuine person, honest and very competent.

        I can say without a doubt in my mind that Mr Francisco stand well above all these lawyers.

        It was a pleasure to deal with Francisco. He spoke excellent English. He was professional and courteous at all times, and responded to any queries I had by return, taking time to explain complicated legal procedure in a manner I could understand.

        For the work Francisco did, his charges were good value for money. I would recommend his services without hesitation.

        Michael Anthony, Malaysia

        I found Francisco to be very understanding of my needs and was able to discuss frankly with him on sensitive and personal matters.

        I found Francisco to be extremely professional, helpful, knowledgeable and importantly very approachable. I would certainly recommend him to anyone who needed such services and I would certainly use him and his law firm again if the need arose.

      • Peter Gural
        Peter Gural, La Linea

        What I liked about this service: Value for money.

        The level of professionalism and excellence in service was not compromised in the reasonably low fee charged for the service.

        All details were explained in a simple format that an ordinary citizen could understand, sparing the bureaucratic procedure that only lawyers can understand.

      • HLB
        HLB, Switzerland

        Francisco was very helpful, always happy to assist.

      • Michael Rieger-Goroncy
        Michael Rieger-Goroncy, Munich

        Our lawyer (Francisco) was very responsive. In a complex matter it needed some additional explanation via email until he fully understood what we were talking about, but then he understood the case and gave us very good and helpful advice.

        In the end he recommended not to proceed with the case which we followed. It was absolutely good value for the money we paid.

      • Mustafa Gural
        Mustafa Gural, La Linea

        Francisco provided a service to me not just as a client but also as though he was helping a family member.

        His friendliness, professionalism, sincerety and many more qualities is something I am yet to find in a lawyer or any other professional. I can’t thank him enough for his excellent service.

        Derek Mendonca, London

        I was very impressed with the service received, in particular:

        Transparency, effective communication, professionalism and value for money.

        I myself am a chartered accountant in the UK so I have very high standards from other professionals which I am glad to say were met by Francisco.

      • Chris Clarke
        Chris Clarke, Calahonda

        My lawyer Francisco was very helpful.

        We had some unanticipated problems and the lawyer gave extra to sort them out – he emailed, texted or phoned all the way until the end. Overall I was very satisfied with the service provided

      • M.D.
        M.D., Puerto Banus

      • Keith & Sandra Brown
        Keith & Sandra Brown, Villaviciosa

        Our lawyer was friendly and helpful with a very good command of the English language.

        Even payment for their services could be paid, by bank transfer, directly into their nominated bank account.

        We would definitely use their services again whenever necessary.
