  • Advice and assistance completing any application forms

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.

Michael Fielden Sep, 27 2022

Advocate abroad were quick to reply to my messages and basically did what they said they would with no fuss.

Helen Tucker Sep, 23 2022

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.

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.

Customer Reviews

Barbara Taylor Sep, 27 2022

As well as being very professional, she was also friendly and helpful.

Jean Lai Chan, Mijas Pueblo Jul, 31 2022

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

Nigel Lella Jan, 19 2022

Very helpful, professional and value for money.

Angela was very helpful and very quick to come back with any questions I had.

Samantha Baycock, Fuengirola Nov, 24 2021

Angela always replied immediately and her clear advice and guidance was so reassuring.

Fantastic customer service when I really needed it.

Brian Thomas Clapham, Cordoba Nov, 22 2021

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!

Marcus Stephan Jul, 05 2021

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.

Christel Suy, Malaga Apr, 30 2021

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!

Michael Bates, Fuengirola Mar, 31 2021

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

Julie Heenan, Cordoba Mar, 08 2021

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.

Robert Atkins, Spain Feb, 18 2021

Very helpful and professional. Excellent English!

Joanna Derrick, Cordoba Feb, 18 2021

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!

Rick Moses, Almodovar del Rio Feb, 18 2021

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.

Frederik Otte, Málaga Sep, 25 2020

Very satisfied with the service provided. Angela is bilingual and speaks English perfectly.

Andrew Hales, Fuengirola Oct, 23 2019

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]

Was extremely satisfied with the response times and explanations and assistance that we received. No hesitation in using Consuelo for future legal work.

Aaron Dolan May, 03 2022

I received a service from Consuelo, she was very helpful and prompt. She came back to me quickly when I asked a question and I am satisfied over all with the service she provided.

Peter Duffin Mar, 02 2022

Consuelo provided an excellent service. Consuelo and her team were very responsive to our needs and helped us through any difficulties that arose, providing a very professional service.

I would highly recommend her to my friends and colleagues.

Jon Winchcombe Dec, 09 2021

Consuelo was extremely helpful in navigating the difficulties the residency system. She was always available to fully and comprehensively answer any questions we had, and held our hand through every step of the long process. It is hard to see how she could have done more to help us understand and alleviate any fears or concerns we had.

We will be using Consuelo for any other services we need as I don't think any other company could be more patient and supportive, and we would recommend her to anyone who needs to navigate the residency or visa system. We were very lucky to get such a first-class service from an excellent professional.

Patrick Mcdermott, Benidorm Nov, 25 2021

Consuelo was able to carry out my instructions in a very professional way and communicated updates throughout the process.

I would use Advocate Abroad again.

Douglas Goddard, Alicante City Oct, 25 2021

Consuelo was always available and very responsive to requests and work needing to be done. She dealt with all work in a very efficient way and provided good solutions to all queries raised by the Authorities.

Consuelo always went that little bit further to ensure all our requirements were completed within the timescales set by the Spanish Authorities. Consuelo was extremely professional and it was a great relief to me to use her services as she removed all the stress and anxiety elements from the process and I was completely confident in her abilities to deliver and would recommend her without hesitation 5 stars service.

Antony P, La Manga Del Mar Menor Sep, 02 2021

Consuelo was fantastic throughout the process of applying for Spanish residency.

She was always a phone call or a WhatsApp away whenever I had any queries. She went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly.

I would highly recommend Consuelo if you are looking for a solicitor

Ruth Lingley Aug, 10 2021

Very responsive, got back to me promptly, answered all my questions thoroughly.

Anuradha Oogur Jul, 15 2021

I definitely recommend Consuelo. Very professional, reliable, did the job with trust and confidence.

English speaking and found her very helpful quickly responding to emails, phone calls. No hassle with the work. I really appreciate her work. I will definitely recommend Consuelo as I bought property and her job was done on time without any difficulties.

Best of luck ,I will rate her work to 5 star!

Dinah Sparkes, Spain, Alicante May, 17 2021

Johanna Count, Benidorm Mar, 22 2021

Consuelo made everything so straightforward and was always available to answer my questions. She was perfect.

Farideh Askari, El Campello Mar, 13 2021

Thank you for the opportunity of giving me to provide feedback about Consuelo, who is a talented and capable lawyer who submitted my Residency application on 31st December a day before Brexit as a British citizen.

My residency was granted kindly by Spanish Authorities on 5th February and despite lack of available appointments, she managed to make an appointment for fingerprints on 5th March and now I am waiting for my TIE card .

I’ll be always grateful for the kind and professional help of Consuelo for helping me through the process and will definitely recommend her to any client. Many thanks!

Brenda Killigrew, Murcia Nov, 29 2020

I had a direct phone call from Consuelo , within 24 hours of my first email contact . Was very clear and explained the next stages really well over the telephone.

The continued emails , were consistent and very helpful . Consuelo dealt with all the stages with a efficient process , that has made the application for the Tourist Licence for my property in Spain very easy. Her persistence with getting the Guardia Civil to issue passwords was impressive , for me to upload information to them as required by law in Spain.

Thank you Regards Brenda Killigrew

Johanna Count, Benidorm Oct, 07 2020

Consuelo explained and took care of everything. She is easy to get in touch with and a pleasure to deal with.

Having to deal with Spanish probate laws and procedures was overwhelming but Consuelo made it so straight forward.

Mark Underhill, Mazarron Sep, 29 2020

We had a legal problem in Spain and the allocated solicitor, Consuelo, helped us solve the issue. Right from the beginning she was extremely professional and understanding of our needs. It was obvious that she knew exactly what was required.

We felt completely at ease and presented very knowledgeable in respect of legal procedures. I would highly recommend the Advocate Abroad service to anyone in a tight spot in need of legal help.

In terms of what could have been improved, maybe time from initial phone call requesting service to client contact could be a bit quicker, but that's the only thing.

Customer Reviews

Tony Sparkes May, 20 2022

Inma provided the current, accurate status of the law as it stands with respect to our issues.

Noreen Murphy Mar, 18 2022

Amazing service. Would recommend to everyone.

Annemarie Bissett Mar, 11 2022

Inma was a pleasure to deal with, she was available by email and by WhatsApp and she answered all of our questions quickly and thoroughly. She was happy to deal with our estate agent, the other solicitor, the bank and the notary in our behalf and went above her duties to help with other things like with the community of owners in our urbanisation.

She gave a clear breakdown of costs, which helped with our budgeting, she was friendly and met us personally when we came to Spain to make sure all of our questions were answered before we began our purchase!

I would have no hesitation in using her services again for any legal matter in Spain. Inma was professional, friendly, extremely thorough during our purchase process, always contactable and explained the whole process to myself and my husband patiently and in excellent English ( las we don’t speak any Spanish at all). 5 star service!

Noreen Murphy Feb, 22 2022

Brilliant communication, really helpful, approachable, solved my problem and professional.
Would use Inma always!

Stephen Kelly, Murcia City Oct, 27 2021

Inma tried very hard to resolve our situation and I can only commend her professionalism in a difficult situation. She was very sympathetic and determined to obtain a resolution.

We have no hesitation in recommending her for legal assistance and will use her services again, if the need arises.

Lea Sherlock Jul, 28 2021

She helped me lots , and have used her before. Great lawyer, much recommended, thanks again ,and we have on going other jobs

Rex Millward, Torrevieja Jul, 02 2021

I was extremely pleased with the whole service.

Jeff Lunn, Murcia City Jul, 01 2021

Inma was very helpful and explained everything to me carefully in English, which was very much appreciated, as we only have a very basic grasp of Spanish.

She worked with an engineer to look at our project for a small campsite and we were very impressed with the service provided, and we are only sorry that we couldn't proceed with our plans at this time.

However if we do decide to go ahead I would have no hesitation in contacting Inma again, or indeed for any other legal advice or help.

Monika Hartmann, Torrevieja Jun, 29 2021

As I didn't know anyone in the area, I found Inma trough the internet search engine. It can be scary to buy a property abroad in current situation without even being able to see it yourself. So I was incredibly lucky to come across Inma who went above and beyond to assist me with every step of the purchase.

Her additional checks and help reassured me that the property is safe to buy. Not knowing the systems in Spain can make the property purchase challenging, therefore it's incredibly important to have the right solicitor. She advised me on everything that needed doing and I am so incredibly grateful for her professional work.

I would recommend Inma 100% to anyone considering using her services and happy to provide further feedback if anyone is not reassured by this.

Blake Hudson, Murcia Jun, 24 2021

Couldn’t have asked for better service!

Lyn Walcott, U.K. May, 18 2021

Would not hesitate in recommending this lawyer, who is excellent!

Lea Sherlock, Torrevieja May, 12 2021

Clive Lloyd, Torrevieja Apr, 15 2021

Inma has been outstanding in her provision of legal services. She has been easy to contact (even during the pandemic), provided excellent advice and resolved my legal issues.

It has been a pleasure dealing with Inma and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to other clients.

N. Thomas, Torrevieja Feb, 22 2021

Natalie Stephens Oct, 24 2022

Very responsive and reached out to me via phone call to set up a consultation. Answered all my questions and is willing to help.

Ali Jul, 25 2022

This was quite the experience that an expatriate who does not speak the language needs – which made me feel less of a stranger and more like at home.

Maria explained the process and procedure with clarity, and she always kept me well-informed till I got through this eventually.

Thank you, Maria, for the great work and I wish you best of luck and success in your professional endeavors.

Jett Smith Jul, 06 2022

Firstly, I was pleasantly surprised how quickly I was contacted and given an appointment. In our very first meeting, it was apparent that Maria is not only knowledgeable and professional, but she is obviously a very caring person.

For the first time in several months of dealing with my Residencia problem, I felt relaxed and positive that she would be successful. She kept me informed on every issue and what to expect. I cannot properly express the relief I had when she informed me that my application was approved, and stayed in contact right up to the day I received my new TIE card.

Thank you for connecting me with Maria. You are very lucky to have her on your team.

Victor Jun, 16 2022

Maria gave a comprehensive breakdown of what her service entailed, including elaborating on other alternatives.

She was quick on delivery and communicated clearly. Overall, this was a satisfactory service.

The problem was dealt with in a very short time, I could not ask for better or more professional service.

Eamonn Kiely Feb, 22 2022

Hello. She was very professional and if I emailed she contacted me back immediately.

She was very helpful and I will use her services again in the future.

Elzbieta Brajer, Murcia City Nov, 19 2021

Maria is very professional and very helpful. She has helped me with problems caused by another lawyer and. when I confused the time of the appointment, she was very understanding and accommodating in making another appointment.

I would definitely recommend her services to anyone.

I eventually decided not to proceed with a court case but will definitely be contacting María in the future about other legal issues.

Paul Dowler, Murcia Mar, 25 2020

I cannot speak highly enough of the professional level of service afforded to me by Maria-Jose.
The speed of reply to enquiries was excellent as was the advice.
I will, without question utilise the services provided by Maria once again, should I have the requirement for legal assistance within Spain.
Thank you Maria!

Customer Reviews

Derry Conran Nov, 02 2022

I found the service very helpful and easy to use. It took the fear out of employing a legal service in that it was upfront and transparent and reasonably priced.

Veronika Glushkova May, 17 2022

Raffaele was very courteous and result-oriented, handled the case with high professionalism

Anthony Farnsworth, Barcelona Jun, 10 2021

We had a good service from Raffaele. He was in a tricky position in obtaining timely information from other professionals and the Covid 19 situation made things take longer.

However he kept trying. Also he set a price and stuck to it even though the job was more involved than originally thought. I thought that the fee we paid was fair/good value.

His level of communication with us was good.

Alex Orchard, Barcelona Jun, 09 2021

Raffaele assisted me with numerous time sensitive legal issues in regards to my residency status in Spain post-Brexit. Not only did he succeed at fixing every issue I presented to him, he also did it all in a timely manner and at a very reasonable cost.

His flexibility in handling legal matters is impressive, and was made even more impressive to have completed it all during this Covid-19 era where normal meetings/ appointments are incredibly hard to organise.

I would recommend him to any of my friends and colleagues, and will seek his legal advice in future matters should it be needed.

Anna, Barcelona Oct, 29 2020

Raffaele got in touch very fast, listened carefully and was very supportive of the matter. Thank you !

Suzanne Frankling, Sabadell Oct, 28 2020

Raffaele was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. He is also very friendly and his manner puts you at ease straight away. Yes I would use him again and in fact my sister uses his legal services as well.

If you need a lawyer who speaks fluent English and Spanish (and Italian) and works on your legal matters professionally and without delay, then I strongly recommend contacting Raffaele.

Raymond Dieset, Barcelona Sep, 18 2020

Very relaxed and not uptight. All very good.

Glenn Humphreys, Barcelona Jun, 02 2020

Always professional I would totally recommend his service.

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.

Bernard Collins, Palma De Mallorca Feb, 01 2022

Rosa was charming, professional, quick to respond, gave us confidence and her fees were fair.
We wouldnt hesitate to recommend Rosa.

Stephen Brown, Northern Ireland Jan, 18 2022

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.

Daryl Jessup Jan, 05 2022

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.
