Client testimonials

What do they think about Bressers Law?

Mariëtte & Henri van Gelder

We have only had very positive experiences with Bressers Law, both professionally and personally.

From Holland we sought legal advice for an inheritance case in Mallorca where nearly all the documents were missing, and also along the way learnt that the apartment was not even in our family name; a very complicated case in several ways. We did not contact Bressers Law until we were told by two other legal advisors that they could not help, that the case was too complicated. We went to Bressers Law and they advised they could help. They have handled every problem step by step and always in accordance with our instructions and opinions. We have carried on in a very positive way and we were always included in the process and were let to do what we could; very efficient and cheaper for us. When others threw in the towel, Mr Bressers carried on, in a very persistent, professional and honest way. Together we have solved all the problems, including even having to locate the former owner in Norway who bought the property in 1982, which only made the matter more exciting and interesting. It is good to know that in Spain there are Dutch experts you can turn to in confusing and complicated situations.
