I would like to try and explain Spanish law in plain English.
That is the reason that I created this website. It is aimed at all English speakers with an interest in Spanish legal issues.
When somebody asks me "why did you become a lawyer?" the answer is clear to me. I love helping people in any possible way, and what I am best at, is practising law.
Working exclusively with non Spanish people over time, I realised that there is a huge gap between the amount of information available and the people to whom this information is addressed. It's as if the information 'flow' becomes restricted within a narrow funnel making it difficult to access.
Although the internet allows a better information flow, still the gap exists in my opinion and there is also the issue of knowing which information sources to trust. Everyday I meet clients thirsty for good quality and clear inormation – in their own language. As much as posible, I want this website to fill the information gap by broadening the funnel and allowing the easy-flow of quality-information.
I love explaining things and I know the Spanish law. Therefore, I intend to explain Spanish legal issues in plain English.
Before explaining anything I had to learn to listen. And learning to listen is a lifelong skill in my opinion.
As English is not my native-tongue, I would like to apologise from the very beginning for any slightly awkward use of the English language. Explain, explain and explain. This is what this website intends to do. This is what I like. This is what I love.
That is why I would like to ask your help. To teach me, and to explain which are the legal issues and concerns which matter most to you. I would love to know about them, and to help explain them to you in the best possible way. If we start a conversation I am sure we can learn a lot from each other. And I hope to learn about your experiences and situations.
Thank you for your time and I hope you will return soon.
