My husband and I have a property in Begur and we had a problem with city planning licenses, so we contacted Porcel Advocats. Finally we were able to solve it with Yolanda's help.
What we liked most about the advice offered by Yolanda from Porcel Advocats is the proximity with the client, the information and good communication with Yolanda and the fact that we have everything centralized with her all the legal help we may need because we transacted from the NIE Number to the income tax of non-residents each year.
Honestly what surprised me the most about Yolanda was that despite her youth she was very sure about what to do to sell my house safely. After selling my house I knew that she had worked on the land register, so she have higher education but she has a complete view of the transaction system despite her youth. Add to this she speaks fluent English and as a result you have your lawyer in Spain.
I have been recommending expats to many businesses over the last few years. Many of my contacts are English, It is invaluable to be able to recommend an English speaking lawyer. However Yolanda goes that extra mile, not only providing invaluable legal advice, but her friendly approach helps to take pressure away when facing a daunting legal dilema. I would highly recommend Porcel to everyone.
Our case is different from other compatriots. We are British retirees and residents in Spain but we do not speak Spanish or Catalan. We hired Yolanda for a claim for an accident we had. All full service with her was entirely in English, clear and successful.
A few years ago Yolanda was recommended for us to advise on the purchase of a house we wanted as an investment in Spain. The house was abandoned for years so there were many charges to cancel and also records of illegality in town hall. Yolanda not only helped us in a safe sale but also made us a further follow-up to the issue and even now we go to her when we need legal help.
