Customer Reviews

Rhona Goodwin Nov, 16 2022

Highly professional, efficient service. Response to our urgent email almost immediately.

Alvaro was very approachable and helpful with the handling of this case and intercepting everything into English for us.

The service provided was excellent value for money.

Ann Kolita Nov, 10 2022

Found Álvaro excellent at responding to emails, messages or calls. I didn't have to wait at all.

He was very helpful throughout the proceedings and would highly recommend him to other people.

Neil Macfarlane Nov, 03 2022

I had tried to instruct another solicitor to deal with my case. Not helpful, kept fobbing me off. That’s when I turned to Advocate Abroad.

Within a very short space of time, couple of hours, Alvaro contacted me. I explained the situation and he immediately said ‘No problems’ True to his word it was for me NO PROBLEMS.

His communication was always by return, even on a Red Day, which I had completely forgotten about.

He explained everything as we went along. Definitely highly recommended, I have recommended Alvaro to a colleague who is looking to purchase a property in Spain.

Francis Connolly, Birmingham, England Oct, 22 2022

Álvaro personally rang me literally minutes after my online enquiry. I explained my ongoing problems.

He immediately put my mind at rest and explained how he could resolve it. And resolve it he did. Keeping me informed throughout. I am absolutely delighted with his service.

Jose Ortega Oct, 14 2022

Alvaro’s response to my enquiry was very swift and understood extremely well what i requested.

Helen Tucker Sep, 23 2022

Mary Anne Smyth Jul, 14 2022

Álvaro was incredible to work with. His responsiveness was lightening fast, and he was extremely competent and helpful. Alvaro was also friendly, patient and explained things very thoroughly, so I understood what was happening throughout the process.

Alvaro was beyond professional and went above and beyond in his work. I was surprised by how reasonable his rates were, especially because he was so excellent.

I would definitely recommend Alvaro without hesitation. He is an asset to the company.

Tim Cook Jul, 11 2022

Sarah Dearing Jun, 29 2022

Johannes Tieman May, 27 2022

Completed in 10 days. Brilliant service!!

David Cockroft May, 27 2022

Álvaro was extremely pleasant and helpful, professional, prompt and efficient.

We feel that we have somebody in Álvaro that we can turn to in times of legal difficulty.

Boris Kogut May, 12 2022

The Spanish court system has been slow, but Álvaro has successfully pursued my case for about three years now and has won a judgement in my favor. We still have uncertainty as to the final outcome given that the judgement is in the appeal period, and we still need to collect the funds owed to me.

So far I have been very satisfied with Álvaro's work.

Caroline assisted and advised me in relation to a possible medical negligence claim. Although I did not proceed with the claim, my case was thoroughly examined and I was advised throughout in a professional and sympathetic manner. The advice was that the claim was unlikely to succeed and that I should not commit any further funds, which might well prove to be wasted. The fee charged was very reasonable under the circumstances. I would thoroughly recommend this service and Caroline in particular.
