Just to finalise this topic - I used someone against the advice of this Forum as I didn't want to cause any offence. Won't be using him again. Ever. For anything. 'Nuff said.

Next time I will listen to good advice. Thank you so much again for helping someone you haven't even met yet. Very Happy

another person who I have used for the last 10 yrs is Juan in Zujar,he is a bank manager and assesor,and his wife is a lawyer.

Juan was the mayor of Zujar and very well respected.

I would highly recommend him.

The only problem on forums is that it is very difficult to leave constructive negative comments without them being removed.
You should also be aware that it may be that the good comments are posted by interested parties.
Briefly make your own mind up.

Dear all
Good Morning
Read this topic with > interest as i in position of dealing with two Lawyers a + b personaly over last 4 years , a for an insurance claim & trying to get Ayuntamiento at Freila to sort out ify road over my cave and b to do my tax returns etc for last 3 years !!
The insurance claim / sorting out Freila Ayuntamiento was a shambles! , but no doubt a a very nice person & overall more positives than negatives !! ( however i did also hear of a problem with a boundary dispute case !).
My tax returns / meetings with b have always been > professional / gone well !! , however not used for insurance claims / property paperwork / disputes etc !! .
This is my personal experience and seems to be pay your money & take your choice / luck !! , not quite what you want when you got problems / disputes that Lawyer can help with rather than add to !!
I have now been recommended a 3rd lawyer who has not even replied to my e mails / communications in 6 weeks let alone sorted Santa Lucia insurance claim / Freila Ayuntamiento ( who built incorrect structured retaining wall up wind of mine / few caves & caused water etc damage !) !!

I think simple fact is Lawyers , insurance co's & many other bodies in Spain a bit more variable / laid back than in uk !! & vary job to job / day to day !! .
Appreciate if anyone can please give me contact details of a lawyer / other contacts in Baza / Freila area who they can > recommend for sorting out Santa Lucia claim ( they just ignore my letters ! / tell not covered when policy clearly sais are covered for legal and damage costs in my caves exact circumstances !) & Freila Ayuntamiento !! .
Is there an official Complaint form / omudsmen type system re;if lack of action or response from Ayuntamiento or insurance co's ?
It appears the whole system set up to end up in deadlock / no action & require lengthy / costly legal battles ( creating work for our Lawyer friends !!)

I love my cave & Positives > outweigh negatives but frustrating when so called professional people ( Lawyers ) & public servants ( Ayuntemento ) do their jobs either very slowly or very badly when need oppposite in circumstances !!

regards

Nigel

ps; isn't there a professional body people can complain to about Lawyers if they fail & seek compensation

the link below will take you to the public defender web site ( i hope)
You can fill in the complaints form in English.

Have used them myself to make a denuncia about the basque police, and found them helpful.

anyone can do a denuncia, you do not need to be a resident, you will just need your passport number. It just means making a report about someone.

Please refrain from 'naming names' of parties when you are making accusations of bad service. If somebody wants to contact you by PM to find details, thats fine, but we cant have accusations made on a public forum.

good morning
bit of a catch 22 sitaution !.
With a topic as important as good or bad lawyers / estate agents etc who can > help or on other hand cause > problems it is esential if whole community told someone is amazing / definitely use etc and another member had a very bad experience with the said Lawyer or estate agent etc = need to let everyone know the facts & not just PM one person !! . Otherwise the person you PM may have correct balanced view but the wider cave community not !!
Obviously goto be careful of people who may have their own personal reasons / contacts etc for +/- comments or make false statements etc ! . However in this case i in the position of having few years experience in the area and personal expereince of both parties ! and wanted to help wider community have full / balanced view !!
Difficult one ! , do we have valuable / crucial topics like this posted ? & if so how to ensure whole forum given a true balanced & fact based view !!
Maybe need to be like feedback sites in uk ( in the uk i run an established building co & on various reputable customer feedback sites where feed back vetted before published !) , maybe if any +/- comments re ; key things like Lawyers / Estate agents/ builders etc = vetted before published !!
Or just haveto make sure no names mentioned in 1st place & anyone who wants to know names etc sends PM to person posting ! , but problem then be if someone posted " nightmare Lawyer to avoid or excellent lawyer please PM for details " = could end up with 10's if not 100's PM's !!
Forum excellent & sorry if caused problem & will not be posting anymore feedback when people named ! .

Nigel

ps; please if anyone has got a vg lawyer / contact re; sorting out Freila Ayuntemiento & insurance co claim appreciate if can PM me !!

Its free to do a denuncia, you can do it over the phone to an English speaking person who will translate it and send it onto the relevant police station.

nigtrog,

Just the point I was making but you seem very aware of the pitfalls, just, as you say, be aware of the way any advice might be slanted as regards to who to use.

agree with your points totally and i think as in many cases best to try and get more than one view / feedback before decide who to use and tread carefuly !
take care
