How Simple is it to Change Lawyers in Spain?

 In Marbella Solicitors

lawyers marbellaAre you unhappy with your present lawyers in Spain? Don’t they answer your emails and calls promptly? Are their fees going up? Do you feel that your lawyer is ignoring you? If so, don’t delay, it’s obviously time to change lawyers.

Many of our clients were afraid to make this change because they thought it would be difficult and long winded, and that it may have been expensive. Some simply thought as the lawyer was in possession of all of their personal documents that they may not get them back when making the change.

However, you must be aware that a clients file, which contains all the personal details and documents of the client, i.e. Property Deeds, Wills, Power of Attorneys, Tax forms, Bills, and other documents related to the client, is THE PROPERTY OF THE CLIENT, NOT THE LAWYER. Therefore, it is the client’s right to ask for it whenever they wish. The Lawyer has no right to deny this nor should they charge anything for returning your property.

Lawyers in Spain, how to change?

It’s quite a simple and quick process; once you have decided that you wish to retrieve your file and transfer it to another lawyer, you merely need to sign a letter authorizing your new lawyer to recover your file together with all of your documents. The new lawyer will contact your former lawyer, and with the authorization will arrange the collection of your complete file.

As you can see it is not complicated, nor is it time consuming, and it does not entail any risk for the client, in fact, if you are not satisfied with the service you are presently receiving, it would be a positive, safer option for you.
