Angela has over 20 years experience as a practising lawyer in Spain. She has assisted English-speaking clients throughout her career in property matters, business law, immigration as we as the areas that so often touch on foreign residents' lives such as family law and inheritance matters.
As well as being very professional, she was also friendly and helpful.
Angela was helpful and caring right from the start. My case was with the British Consulate in Malaga and Angela didn't flinch knowing how difficult if not impossible to deal with a government organisation.
Angela had supported me mentally as well because of the way I was being treated, and I wasn't mentally capable of making any decision for myself. She guided me to have the confidence to face the challenge ahead, and we finished the case with the compensation and result that I wanted.
I will not hesitate to recommend Angela's service to anyone. Thank you Angela, I am grateful for your help and support. Kind regard, Jean
Very helpful, professional and value for money.
Angela was very helpful and very quick to come back with any questions I had.
Angela always replied immediately and her clear advice and guidance was so reassuring.
Fantastic customer service when I really needed it.
Angela is extremely proficient with excellent English, she responds to questions within an hour.
Easily the best lawyer I've ever dealt with both here in Spain & UK.
A very charming lady, thank you Angela!
A highly professional and pragmatic response. In our particular case a range of outcomes was possible and it was refreshing to deal with someone who not only had an in-depth understanding of the law as it applied, but was also able to advise looking at the wider picture and context.
Communication was excellent and I believe that the service provided represented good value for money.
We will certainly continue to ask Angela to represent and act for us in all future legal matters.
Angela is very professional and always available to assist us. Especially when we couldn't come to Spain due to Covid she sorted everything in our name. We are extremely satisfied!
Angela’s English is perfect. She did an amazing job and kept me informed all though the process.
I will be recommending her to all my friends both in Spain and those in the UK with interests in Spain. I was happy with the end cost.
I cant praise her enough. Thank you Angela
Angela was extremely professional in all her communication with us, and on behalf of us. She had the ability to pre-empt our concerns and was extremely knowledgeable about her subject, which in turn provided us with security that we could trust her and she was acting in our best interest and within the law.
She also showed us kindness and empathy, which we so appreciated.
We were surprised at the cost for her services, we expected so much more having heard stories of other British people seeking Spanish residency and what they were being charged.
We have no hesitation in recommending Angela, and if ever I needed the services of a Lawyer in the future I would not hesitate to contact her. If she wasn’t able to help me herself, I have full confidence that she would help me find the person I needed.
Very helpful and professional. Excellent English!
Angela was very prompt and very clear in all communications. Throughout our residency process the rules kept changing and she stayed on top of what was required for us. She went above and beyond in helping us, she even helped when we ran into obstacles with exchanging our driving licenses. I have already recommended her to three friends who are now working with her, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to more!
Angela was always there to help and always answered my questions. Everything went smoothly despite the current climate. I would not hesitate to use her services again or to recommend her. Thank you.
Very satisfied with the service provided. Angela is bilingual and speaks English perfectly.
We dealt with Angela, and had a superb service - she was efficient, clear, timely and exceptionally helpful. We would recommend this respectable Solicitor who has excellent English.
Trustworthiness is so important, and step by step help was very much appreciated. Thank you Angela of myAdvocate Fuengirola. [View all G o o g l e Reviews]
Angela was amazing with us. We will recommend her to all of our friends and family and also would not hesitate in using her again.

The service was perfect, and we are very happy with the whole process.
Francisco was recommended to me by friends in Spain after they had a very positive experience with him. He was an excellent contact for me while I was in the process of buying a house in Spain.
It was an overwhelming experience buying from Canada, particularly because of the language barrier and the time difference, but Francisco did a fantastic job of explaining to me everything about the forms, taxes and the local processes.
He was helpful, friendly and informative. When I arrived in Spain to complete the purchase, I felt much more confident knowing that I had his advice and assistance, he even offered to help me fix a problem with my bank accounts when I didn't understand what was happening (language).

"Maria is an experienced English speaking Spanish lawyer with experience in Property law, inheritances and corporate and private banking."
I needed a lawyer since I got in trouble with getting a money refund after cancelling a car reservation due to fraudulent information posted on the internet by the car dealer. I then contacted Advocate Abroad and my case was followed by Maria, one of the lawyers of the team.

Rafael graduated in Law from the University of Seville in 1995. He lived in Ireland for more than two years to improve his English language skills and his experience as a lawyer. He specialises in civil law, in particular property matters, mortgages, inheritance and family law. He speaks English fluently with a certified Advanced level.
He phoned us in The Netherlands within an hour of my initial message to AA. He was very helpful and generally reassuring. He made the effort to book us a much needed 9.00am Monday morning appointment at very short notice and had everything prepared when we arrived.
We hope to never need a lawyer at short notice in Sevilla again, but if we do, we have one!
Many thanks to AA too for the speedy connecting and convincing website.
Thank you ever so much Rafael for your help, understanding and professionalism. We are grateful!
Rafael was very professional in all aspects, he was very polite and understanding and would ensure that you knew all the facts concerning the Spanish legal system.
With his guidance and advice, my particular case had a good conclusion. I was very surprised that the cost of his council was very reasonable and economical considering his experience and knowledge as a lawyer.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any future clients. Thank You, Rafael
Rafael was an enormous help with the purchase of our home. Being new to the country it all seemed extremely complex but Rafael explained the process in such a clear, calm and detailed way that I felt I could place my trust in his abilities which made the whole experience smooth and hassle free.
Rafael is a consummate professional and will highly recommend him to anyone in need of his talent.
Rafael in Sevilla helped my husband & I through the EU residency process. He was very proactive with gaining our appointments quickly, accompanying us to all appointments as our Spanish is still a work in progress and keeping us informed of the process from beginning to end.
We would fully recommend Rafael.
Rafael went out of his way to assist us with numerous immigration-related procedures over the course of the last year. He helped us interpret the rules and regulations, which were often available only in Spanish, and helped us with the requisite interviews at the Foreigners’ Office in Seville.
This was complicated by the numerous delays and closures due to COVID and Rafael was indispensable in helping us obtain meetings and file documents online. He was always available to answer the many questions that crept us during this rather lengthy process and we could not have navigated the numerous steps without his invaluable assistance.
Rafael did a great job informing me and my girlfriend of our options to relocate to Seville from the UK. Clear, friendly, and straight forward process. Thank you.
Responded excellently to the difficult changes to get my TIE residency. Very professional & approachable. Value for money.
Very happy with the service I received.
Rafael was always available to help and assist me, even if it was a case of me worrying! Which I really appreciated because the process was stressful at times and involved lots of preparation.
Rafael made sure I knew exactly what I had to do. He replied and responded quickly to my messages/calls/emails. He was very knowledgeable and highly organised with a vast experience. He made me feel confident. I will always recommend him. I praise his work highly.
Rafael was incredibly helpful and responsive.
I would highly recommend his services for anyone like me who is having difficulty navigating the Spanish system.
Rafael has provided us with excellent service for us as we relocated to Spain. He guided us through the NIE application and subsequent switch to TIEs. He assisted us through the process of our house purchase and also helped us with our wills.
We found his help invaluable. His approach was friendly and professional throughout. We would recommend him to anyone looking for English speaking legal services.
Rafael was extremely professional when we approached him in a complete panic over a burofax we received in Spanish from a neighbour. He knew exactly what we should do.
He diffused the situation with his knowledge of the law in Spain. The information has been left on file with him should we ever need to refer back in the future.
Michael and Olivia Ashmore
I was extremely happy with Rafael during my case. He always responded promptly to any questions I had. I found both his spoken and written English to be excellent, even with complex legal matters.
He explained any query I had very well and if there was anything I was unsure of he explained thoroughly. I was extremely impressed with the level of professionalism throughout the process together. I would highly recommend Rafael to anyone needing a lawyer in Spain. It was a pleasure to work with him.
Very helpful, especially as English and Spanish law has it's differences and my final document - a testament - required the services of a notary and the final translation.
A pleasure to meet Rafael and to discuss my needs and he made the whole process straightforward with lots of common sense solutions. ***** 5 stars and highly recommended.
Worked with Rafael for a project. He is very professional, efficient and helpful.

Rosa has been absolutely great. I've never had such good service. Rosa understood my needs, my situation and my concerns and clearly guided me through the whole process of punching a home abroad.
Rosa was very professional, she responded to any concerns I had rapidly, all times of the day.
I went on to do additional purchases and legal work with Rosa and seriously cannot fault the services she provided.
Rosa was always timely and extremely thorough with her responses, which I really appreciated.
It was easy going through the process with her, and she made the whole process stress-free.
She was amazing. Every question quickly answered.
Rosa contacted me the very next working day and was so helpful. Had my matter that i'd been so worried about resolved in a couple of days. Thank you!
It’s been a very long nerve wrecking process but that’s for the court to get better at. Half the trauma for me has been the wait and not been able to move on. Very tough.
I appreciate Rosa very much in every respect.
Rosa was very efficient, responding promptly to all my enquiries and made the whole process very smooth. I couldn't have asked for more in a lawyer.
I found Rosa very easy to talk to and she explained all my options. She was very happy to explain all the legal terms that were unfamiliar to me.
I will definitely contact Rosa in the future and recommend her friends requiring an excellent lawyer.
Rosa was charming, professional, quick to respond, gave us confidence and her fees were fair.
We wouldnt hesitate to recommend Rosa.
Rosa proved herself to be extremely professional, helpful and approachable. I would go as far to say if it were not for her expert advice we would not be in the fortunate position of having recently completed on our property.
We were working with a small budget for Mallorca and it took us 3 years to find the right property with all the right paperwork in place. During that time Rosa was there for us offering advice, explaining the rules and regulations of the Spanish property system even instructing an Architect on our behalf for one property we had initially and possibly fool heartedly agreed.
During Covid Rosa having Power of Attorney meant an inability to travel did not prevent us from completing on our property, within the agreed time frame. Rosa’s written and spoken English is perfect and she always answered emails promptly, she went above and beyond to keep us informed at every stage of the purchase and ensure we understood what was happening and when the funds were expected to be available.
To quote my wife Rosa was more helpful, easier to pay and offered better advice than any solicitor we have had in the U.K.
I found the service offered was of the highest standard. Every question we put forward, was answered promptly and with a useful response. If we needed advice or for someone to attend meetings, then this service was very forthcoming.
The knowledge and expertise was excellent. The fees charged were extremely fair.
Overall, the service provided far exceeded my expectations and I could not have asked for more.
