You have done a terrific job of educating me and keeping me updated on the process. Your efforts have been reassuring and that is important given our separation in miles and primary language. I will definitely recommend you and your firm to anyone needing legal services in Spain! Thank you, Marta.

We bought a property in Spain last year, We had a lot of difficulty finding out about Inheritanc Tax, NIE number, etc. I found out about Lawbird through the Internet. I found the Company to be most efficient and courteous with a wealth of knowledge, every question we asked was answered promptly, sometimes by email long after office hours. They arranged our NIE Number promptly. I would highly recommend them to anybody thinking of purchasing property in Spain Also, the rates for their services are very reasonable.
