It’s a well known fact that unfortunately 99% of lawyers in Spain make the rest look bad.
This is just ridiculous. 99% of spanish lawyers are perfectly honorable. Im a spanish lawyer. Lawyers are one of the most respected professions in Spain year after year in statistc approval.
You should avoid lawyers which are directly “imposed” by real estate agencies because it is more likely than not that they’ll have some vested interest or other.
If you have a huge british rogue estate agency on the costa del sol which always recommends the same three lawfirms just avois using their services. There are plenty of perfectly trustworthy lawyers on the costa, you just aren’t looking in the right place.
