The nine reasons to hire me as your attorney in Costa Rica:

For my academic knowledge: I am a Doctor of Law.

After passing the Bar Exam with flying colors, I became licensed to practice law in 2000.  My first civil lawsuits began just a few weeks later.  Over the years, these included complex civil cases on breaches of contracts and land disputes.  I also have astonishing experience in debt collections and legal defenses in complex cases.  Family law became another passion of mine; thus, I litigated these legal matters.   Outside the trial jurisdictions, I practice commercial and corporate law as a real estate attorney and notary public.  In 2014, I obtained a Ph.D. in Civil Litigation, Procedures, and Commercial Law, becoming a Doctor of Law in Costa Rica. Because of this, my academic knowledge is the first reason to hire me as your Costa Rica lawyer and legal advisor.  

For my fluency in English: an essential quality for your lawyer in Costa Rica, Central America.

As a legal advisor, your lawyer should speak and understand English fluently.  For this reason, many corporate law firms in Costa Rica claim to have attorneys that do. However, unlike many Costa Rica lawyers, I am fluent in English since childhood.  My father´s side of the family is from Ontario, Canada, so as a result, you will receive my legal advice in fluent English.  So rest assured, you will have no barriers to communicating with me.  In short, I am an attorney in Costa Rica that will fully understand you.  Therefore, you should avoid disappointments with law firms in Costa Rica that won´t understand you.  Don´t battle the language barrier with attorneys – the legal situation is a battle all in itself.  Consequently, my fluency in English is the second reason for hiring me as your Costa Rica attorney. 

For my legal experience: more than twenty years of it.

It´s already been more than twenty years!   My experience is one of the most powerful tools in my toolbox.  It was hard work to acquire it.  You benefit from it since the moment you talk to me.  The combination of my knowledge and experience gives me great insight into how best to navigate the legal world, allowing me to create a custom-made strategy for you.  I know the law, the process, and how to win.     My extensive experience is the third reason to hire me as your attorney in Costa Rica.

Because I have an excellent record of winning cases.

I am a specialist in Procedure Law, and I use this effectively.  I have argued infinite cases during my career and have an excellent client win record.  You see, many jurisdictions of law are all argued by the same procedures and principles, and as it turns out, I am a Doctor in Procedure Law.  Thus, the combination of knowledge and experience has given me an excellent record of winning cases.   My excellent record is the fourth reason for hiring me as your Costa Rica lawyer.

For the duality in my legal practice: an attorney and a notary public.

First and foremost, I act as a lawyer in Costa Rica. But my legal practice is not limited to being an attorney.  So that you know, I have the privilege of a duality you will benefit from. I have also practiced as a  Notary Public.  As such, I draft and notarize legal documents and contracts for clients.  This means you won´t need to hire more legal advisors than you have to.   Thus, the duality of my practice is the fifth reason to hire me as your lawyer in Costa Rica.

For diverse services: as a corporate lawyer and expert in real estate law.

Alternatively, our corporate law firm can provide other attorney services in Costa Rica.  Maybe you want to open a corporation and buy real estate.  Incorporating a company is simple as your corporate attorneys.  You should know that being a real estate attorney is not just about transferring properties.  We perform due diligence, set up everything with Escrow, and draft the notarized sales contract. For all purposes, our corporate law firm in San José, Costa Rica, and Guanacaste will ensure that the property transaction is done correctly.  Our varied attorney services are the sixth reason you want to hire me to be your attorney in Costa Rica, Central America.

Because we are a group of specialized legal professionals:

Our corporate law firm provides specialized legal services in Costa Rica.  We are a group of seasoned legal advisors and a team of English-speaking lawyers in Costa Rica, competent in family, corporate, civil, and commercial law.  We are highly skilled trial attorneys in different fields of the law.  Therefore, our experienced legal professionals are the seventh reason for hiring our Costa Rica law firm.

Because I keep you updated, explain strategies, and return calls!

There is nothing worse than an attorney who keeps you in the dark.   Many people complain that lawyers in Costa Rica are hard to reach.   But, you will find that I am an available attorney and promptly return phone calls.  I take pride in my legal work and will support your case.  Once you hire me as your legal advisor, you will realize I greatly care about my clients.  My availability and commitment to you are the eighth reason to hire me as your Costa Rica lawyer.

For signing overseas if necessary:

Our attorneys are ready to provide you with an international service if needed.  Even though our law firm is in San José, Costa Rica, there have been situations where clients can´t come to our country.  We take advantage of technological advances when this happens, but there are situations in which things have to be done personally.  This is why we are ready to fly to your location if needed.  You should know that when it comes to notarized acts and legal documents, they must be signed in front of the physical persona of the notary public.  So if you need to sign a last will or some other notarized legal document urgently, we will fly the notary public to you. Our notarized international service is the ninth reason to hire our law firm in San José, Costa Rica, Central America.
