We had a Lawyer here in Marbella from the early 90’s. He was great, if he was not in the office when I called he would call back asap. We socialised with him too, still have a painting he gave us. Around 2000 there was a change, not so efficient, not as available, we had to query a few costs, wouldn’t have said he was corrupt but he wasn’t on the ball anymore.. We (regretfully) parted company with him in 2001. If I were to need a Lawyer now I wouldn’t know which to choose in Marbella.
The number of Lawyers increased parallel with the number of estate agents during the boom years, many joined bufetes straight from law school and were left to work without supervision. It really was the gold rush.
