It is not an easy job to be a lawyer in Spain …
My experience of lawyers in Spain is that it is not only an easy job – no accountability to anyone, least of all the client – but also extremely lucrative. Lawyers charges are far higher in Spain for far less work.
Of course this does not apply to ALL lawyers, and certainly not the ones who give freely of their good advice on this and other forums. But it does seem to be that the potential to make a lot of money for a very poor job is there for the taking.
I wish that those with the power to fix this – notaries and the Colegio de Abogados – would take some action to make changes.
