Over 15 years ago I received the heart breaking news that my significant investment in building a family home in Marbella had been lost due to mal practices undertaken by the building developer. Despite every attempt to recuperate my investment, including litigation with the developer, I eventually conceded that all my investment and family savings had been lost..
I received a call from JLCA Lawyers 12 months ago requesting to represent me in attempting to recuperate my investment. Despite my absolute scepticism, I felt comforted that on a no win-no fee proposal there really was nothing to lose. I provided the basic paperwork that I still had in my possession and left it with JLCA to do their “Magic” but with little confidence that anything would transpire.
Never have I received an e mail that has left me absolutely speechless and as overwhelmed as I did when I received an e mail from JLCA advising me that they had not only managed to secure my initial investment but also that they had managed to secure interest for the 15 years that I would have had that money in a savings account. I am forever in their gratitude and would implore anyone looking for guidance, council and representation to think no further than JLCA lawyers.

I was contacted by JLCA for them to represent me in against the San Jose Avda Habaneras. My confidence was very low due to my previous experience with another company. I had no need to worry, they where professional from the start and my confidence was there from the beginning, and I felt hope for the first time. I was delighted when 6 month later I won my deposit back plus interest! I was extremely happy. I would highly recommend this company they where extremely helpful every step of the way, and the service is exceptional.

I acquired a property in Spain, in a same manner, with the support of the JLCA Legal Firm, which has managed all the legal part for this purchase (opening a bank account, file follow up...), I just had to enter the house. I strongly recommend the firm services each year (Annual Services). It is a real service and indispensable assistance for foreign businessmen who always in a hurry and without precise knowledge of the Spanish administration. It is key support. For my part, I am totally satisfied with the services offered by the office of the JLCA team.

Thank you for your email. I would like to say a huge thank you to you and all your team for helping me regain my belief in fairness again. I cannot believe after all these years that I have received my money. Thank you all, I am very grateful for all your hard work, when other lawyers were not interested in what they called a small amount. I would highly recommend you to everyone. Thank you all once again, I am absolutely delighted.

Faced with a problem of succession, I found JLCA & As, and especially its employees such as Mr. Gaffier, the ideal answer. Listening, understanding, efficiency, speed, professionalism, all these qualities have allowed us to conclude this matter with satisfaction. The ability to communicate without difficulty in French was also decisive. I recommend this company for similar cases.

I have been a client of JLCA for over ten years and have always found Jose-Luis, Emma and their team to be expert, trustworthy and professional in everything they do. Their service is exceptional and they always go the extra mile to look after us. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
- Marc Brennan (Insurance Broker, London, UK)
I used JLCA for a recent property purchase in Andalucia. The support was fantastic in leading me through the minefield that is Spanish property law. But also the broader support including helping set up bank accounts was far more than was expected. Would recommend them to anyone considering buying in Spain.
- Dave Millett (London, UK)
For a busy person like myself, in a far away country, JLCA has been ideal in terms of services it provided and professionalism of their execution. It handles all the matters that need handling and has acted on my behalf even when I was sure that costly personal trips would be needed. I am always met with professional, yet friendly approach - I could not ask for more.
- Lucjan Slomka (London, UK)
I just completed a real estate transaction with JLCA & AS. At a moderate cost, I will especially remember the professionalism of the team and, in particular, that of Mr. Gaffier and Mr. Campillo, who always knew how to answer my questions quickly and accurately. A positive point for this firm, the presence of multilingual lawyers and, in particular, French-speaking lawyers. The accompaniment before a notary by two people of the firm is another important point. I highly recommend this firm.
- Sonia Mehannek (Alicante, Spain)
It has been a pleasure being looked after by JLCA lawyers for the last 13 Years . They give one confidence and such reliable service you soon get to know that you can trust them in every way in all they do for you. A very happy client.
- Albert Lilley (Great Broughton, Cheshire, UK)
I would like to say how impressed I have been with Emma Belgum and her never ending patience, humour and professionalism in dealing over the past year in our complex, time consuming, and sometimes frustrating case. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she just went that extra mile to help, explain and translate the many problems we encountered. Thank you so much Emma, and I would not hesitate to recommend you and JLCA Lawyers to anyone who needs sound legal advice.
- Genevieve Foster (Berkshire, UK)
I have known JLCA Lawyers for over 10 years. I have always found them to be helpful and responsive in my dealings with them, both on a personal and business level. I have introduced personal friends, family and business contacts to them over the years and they have been very happy with the service provided. They operate very much like an English law firm and the fact that they regularly come over to London and the South East to meet clients, makes things a lot easier.
- Salim Somjee (London, UK)
In November 2019 I received a telephone call out of the blue from JLCA lawyers, a very personable young woman who was not taking no for an answer. Over the period 2003 to the present day, I have lost count of the number of legal firms that could guarantee getting my deposit back; no success so far! So I thought what have I got to lose. A mere 6 months later I received an email to say that my claim had been successful. Without me providing proof that I had sent the money from my UK bank and no other supporting documentation. I did think the 50% charge was a bit steep, but I am now in possession of 50% of something and not 100% of nothing! I would have no problems recommending JLCA Lawyers to anybody else in a similar situation. It is a great day, a day I have been waiting 17 years for.
- D. Evans (Northamptonshire, UK)
Contact was made with the international firm JLCA & As. for the purchase of an apartment in Denia (Comunidad Valenciana) in Spain. We have been able to acquire the property thanks to the efficiency, responsiveness and all the professionalism of the company. Mr. Benoît Gaffier was always present at our side, even to clarify the smallest doubts and small details that we could sometimes worry about. We appreciate it and we highly recommend it.

When I needed help with Timeshare miss-selling I was introduced to JLCA Lawyers by Robert Alexander of CLC Members, I cannot thank Jose-Luis & Emma Belgum enough for the help they have given me, because of all the hard work they have done I have won my case & would recommend them to anyone
- Hilary Howlett (London, UK)
We have been clients of JLCA Lawyers for many years. We have both bought and sold properties in Spain and were given excellent advice and service throughout the whole process. We cannot thank all the staff adequately enough for keeping us right at every stage of the process. They are very knowlegeable in this field and we could not recommend them highly enough.
- Mr and Mrs Taylor (Ayrshire, Scotland)
JLCA is an ideal partner to secure a purchase of real estate or an investment transaction in Spain from France, Belgium or England. It is a good interface for the real estate professional to get the right solution in a transaction. To consume without moderation.
- George Sánchez, Director of Real Estate Agency Sigmaltea (Altea, Spain)
We have used JLCA Lawyers for many many years now and during this period we have always found them to be reliable, professional and very friendly. Highly recommended service.
- Simon Dodsworth (Sunderland, UK)
I am very grateful to the company JLCA and As.-Lawyers and all their team for their excellent work, meeting our high expectations. Serious work and rapid communication during the complicated process of my parents' inheritance. A positive result both in practice and in administrative procedures, and especially communication between all members of our family.
- Antonio Migueles (France)
Reference - A victory for the little people. WITHOUT PREJUDICE. A short testimony about how professional, understanding, and helpful we found yourself, and all your staff at JLCA Lawyers. You were about a million percent better with all aspects of dealing with our case compared to a well known solicitor firm, which has a branch in Quesada that we gave money to !!! to try and previously deal with things (to the fact the case deposit was only the minimum 3000 euros and not 100,000 euros), they became very disinterested, to the point it took over a year to get even to get a single piece of documentation out of them !!! Can’t praise JLCA Lawyers higher, yes we had a cold call from yourselves originally, but you followed through with everything you promised, it was a result also strongly for the little people like ourselves. A big thank you once again. Best wishes.
- M. & P. Brown (UK)
A team of professionals, kind, attentive to your problems, and dynamic. Highly recommended.
- Olivier Bourquin (Geneva, Switzerland)
Dear Emma, We have received your payment for the settlement of Anfi. We wish to thank you and your colleagues for all your hard work in resolving the matter and would recommend J.L.C.A. to any one. Thank you.
- Howard and Jackie Lane (UK)
After spotting JLCA’s advert in the easyJet flight mag, they fully and honestly answered all my sceptical questions. Having then instructed them to pursue a claim against our timeshare provider, they managed our expectations right through the process. The outcome was entirely successful and concluded, even after costs and fees, with almost a full refund of our investment.
- John Hutchings (Llanelli, UK)
Timeshare purchase via CLC World has eventually been resolved thanks to JLCA Lawyers – money back in the bank within days! After many enquiries and meetings via 4 UK companies that assured could help but these again are another scam (don’t give over your documents please!) I decided to place my hands in the best even though a little daunting being a Spanish law firm initially. However, Emma Belgium, Janine Frey (sorry for ALL the emails both) and the whole of the litigation team have been superb. From so many years of sleepless nights of how to get out of this awful situation with the High interest loan taken out and the fees I’m now free of it! If you read my testimonial, honestly believe me when I tell you they will help you up this very long road of getting you out!!!!
- Allison Britz (Devon, UK)
Many Solicitors tried to get my lost deposit back for a property in Spain, over 15 years later, with little work required from me, JLCA Lawyers deposited my funds today - I can hardly believe it. I gave up hope years ago, 100's of people were affected by the development promised by San José in Jumilla, Murcia back in 2004/5. I thank you greatly for supporting me with this and apologise if I thought that this was somehow a scam. Let JLCA help you today.
