How clients rate our Make a last Will & Testament Service...

Advocate Abroad seeks client feedback to ensure continued high-quality service provision.
We had been looking for a lawyer who was Spanish, but English speaking, to help us write our Spanish Wills. We found Oscar through Advocate Abroad. He was quick to respond to messages, knowledgeable and guided us through the whole process, taking into account Spanish laws that we weren’t aware of. He also organised the appointment at the notary and made the whole process stress-free. We would highly recommend contacting Oscar if you need help writing a will in the Barcelona area.
