I chose to use LSIS after being impressed by the services they offer as described on their website. Thanks to LSIS, I received the VISA I wanted for Spanish residency and with no problem. LSIS provided me with very clear and timely information and instructions, led me through each step of the process and answered any question I had. Furthermore, they were very prompt in contacting and responding to me. With LSIS one is in excellent, knowledgeable and trustworthy hands. I can confidently recommend LSIS to others and would myself use them again in future without hesitation." C. Dale - September 2022

Dear Melanie and Laura, Just a quick note to thank you both for all your professionalism and most of all incredible patience in the handling and processing of our application for our Spanish NLVs. It was a far simpler process to obtain our residency for France, but we genuinely could not have applied for our Spanish Visas without your help and knowledge. Once again thank you so much. " Graham & Morag Hull - August 2022

I can highly recommend Melanie Radford and Laura Tarvidaite of Legal Services Spain. I engaged Melanie and Laura in reference to the process of obtaining my Residency Visa at the Spanish Consulate in LA as I am a US citizen. Melanie and Laura have been a tremendous help to me with the entire process. I just finished phase 1 and am happy to report that I received my Visa rather quickly Thanks to Melanie and Laura. Melanie and Laura are very detail oriented and answered all my questions quickly and were very patient with me. Thank you so much Melanie and Laura. - July 2022 With much Appreciation" - Beate Christina Waggoner - July 2022

If you want to remove the stress and hassle of applying for a TIE card I highly recommend contacting Laura Tarvidaite of Legal Services in Spain. Laura manages the whole process from start to finish with wonderful efficiency. I am delighted to recommend her services." - Peter Allen - July 2022

We just wanted to say a big "Thank You" to yourself and Melanie, for all your help and advice in obtaining our Spanish Visa and TIE. Your team has helped, and given assurance throughout the whole stressful process, we would not have been able to complete it without your help. Just being able to speak to somebody over the phone any time that we needed advice, was a real credit to the business, nothing was ever too much trouble. The contacts you provided for different services, (translations, insurance etc) were all as competent and professional as yourselves. All in all, we are very pleased with our choices, and are now living our dream in Spain." Pete and Debs Comery - July 2022

Melanie & Laura We would like to say a huge thank you to you both for assisting us with our move to Spain. My husband and I had been looking on the Internet to find out about the process required to obtain Non-Lucrative Visas but thought it looked too difficult to tackle on our own. We were recommended to Melanie at Legal Services in Spain through a third party and are so thankful for that recommendation. Melanie guided us step by step through the whole process which included contacting various agencies and completing numerous forms in Spanish which she did on our behalf. Everything we obtained was checked by her to make sure it was all in order and acceptable for presentation at our Consulate appointment which she booked for us. On arrival at the Consulate, the girl we dealt with was very impressed with the way our documents were presented and that was all down to Melanie’s impeccable detail. We obtained our Visas and Laura then guided us through the process of obtaining our TIE cards. She arranged our appointments at Velez Malaga, advised us what we required to take to our appointments and on our arrival at the Police Station, we handed over the required documents and were handed our TIE cards almost straight away. We would highly recommend this very professional firm of Solicitors and we will definitely be utilising their services for our TIE renewals. Thanks again for making our dream of moving to Spain a reality ! Ian & Tracey Graham - June 2022

Hi Laura/Melanie. I just wanted to write to you both to say thank you so much for assisting me with my journey in moving to Spain. The Non Lucrative Visa process looked and is very daunting. Numerous forms in Spanish, numerous documents required and also having to get the timings right so the documents are not out of date. I have to say that you guys were absolutely brilliant. Broke the process down step by step. Guided me by the hand through it all. Made sure my documents were right, made sure everything would be in date. Translated the Spanish official applications and assisted with filling this in. Booked the appointment. Treble checked everything. Your attention to detail was spot on. All questions from me answered right away and I did have a lot of questions. You guys were so professional and I can’t thank you enough for making my dream come true. The stress I would have endured having to do this myself would probably have put me off and not realising my dream. The Edinburgh consulate also commented on how organised and professional all my documents where and this was a huge benefit as some applications at the time were taking 12weeks to turn around. I got mine within 2 weeks. This came down to having professional help. You guys went above and beyond for us. The service didn’t stop when we got our visa. You made getting registered with the Padron and getting our official TIE a breeze. Again help with filling in forms, making appointments for us and even telling us what to say when we turned up at the offices. I have to say. I will be using your services for my year 2/3 renewal. The value your service offer is well worth the money and I can’t thank you guys enough. Thanks again for all your help. " Diane & Carole - April 2022

Exceptional Service Being a solicitor in the UK I appreciate and fully understand the importance of good client care. I have to say the level of client care I received from Legal Services in Spain (LSIS) was exceptional. LSIS assisted me in obtaining a Spanish Residency Visa. From the start of the process to its conclusion, LSIS informed me what was required, what the process involved and how long it would take. LSIS informed me, in very clear terms, what documents I had to collate, they then did all the necessary paperwork; lodged the application (with the supporting documents) and even accompanied me to the police station for my application to be processed and, later, to collect my TIE card. What I think would have otherwise been a complicated, cumbersome, and bureaucratic process was made easy and stress free by the expertise and professionalism of LSIS. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the services of LSIS." - Malcolm - March 2022

We have recently completed our Non Lucrative Visa application to obtain Residency in Spain. Legal Services in Spain guided us through this very complex procedure. We could not have navigated this application without their professional help. Melanie, Laura and all the Team at LSIS responded promptly and helpfully to all our questions, no matter how small or complicated our queries. Andrew is a retired Airline Pilot and has in the course of his career dealt with some very complicated application processes but nothing he experienced was as complicated as the Non Luc Visa application process. LSIS held our hands right through the process, from start to finish and we are sure we would not have obtained our Spanish visas without their professional and friendly support." Andrew and Vivien Clark - March 2022

I just wanted to take a little time to say thank you to you and Legal Services in Spain for the Excellent Service and professionalism throughout the process of our Spanish Visa application through to its conclusion. Once we had the information together it was a pretty painless process and that is down to the Skill and Professionalism of you and the team. Thank you once again for your Excellent service." Kevin & Sharon Howes - March 2022

Thank you for all your help, assistance and patience given to Alan and I over the past seven months. Our thanks also to Melanie and Monica for guiding us both through the process of gaining residence in Spain. It's been quite a journey." - Jane Hurt - February 2022

I had spent hours upon hours trawling the internet and YouTube videos in searching how to go about applying for a TIE card. Legal Services in Spain jumped out at me, appearing to be a sound professional outfit, so I went with them. I am so glad that I did. I dealt initially with Melanie, then Laura took over and took everything to a most satisfactory conclusion. Every question was answered speedily. This company is very helpful, they will not let you down, and know exactly what they are doing. Your search for help is over." Dave, Torrevieja - February 2022

An inspired move of mine to engage the services of legalservicesinspain.com with special thanks to Melanie + Laura for steering me successfully through the tricky application process for a non lucrative Visa. They put up with my frequent stupid questions and made sure I had everything necessary for both the London Consulate and then swiftly got the necessary follow up appointments in Spain - I now have a TIE card. Thanks again" M W Knights FCCA - February 2022

Francisco & Laura, I wanted to quickly send you both a personal note of thanks for all your efforts. I know that both of you have worked hard behind the scenes pulling everything together for our application and I also know just how difficult getting appointments at certain establishments can be, so again, we are both very grateful." And "Thanks Melanie. I will try to portray is just how much you've done for us, under tight time constraints and gone all out to make it happen. It's quite unusual to get this level of service. Seriously Melanie, I know the job isn't done yet but we couldn't have done it without you and your team. It's very rare to come across people who put so much effort with a personal touch into their work. I really felt you delivered way beyond our expectations. I'll finish by saying that every now and then one finds a little gem..👏" Simon & Julie - January 2022

Thanks for all your help Melanie over the last six / seven months. At times I felt like giving it up. However being here since October and enjoying all the lovely sunny days I am so happy we went ahead." Alan - January 2022

Melanie, Monica and Laura, we can’t thank you enough for your assistance and guidance throughout the process of acquiring our non-lucrative visas and our TIE card applications. Your patience and rapid response answering all of our questions and the detailed guidance through every stage of the process was second to none and your continued support even after we arrived in Spain was outstanding. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your team to anyone wishing to embark on a new life in Spain." Karen and Wayne - January 2022

I couldn’t more highly recommend Melanie & Laura at legal services in Spain. I recently applied for a non lucrative visa, & was expertly guided by 2 ladies who know the process inside out, communicate with you in a very timely way by phone or email, & provide a best in class service." Ian - January 2022

Once again I would like to thank you all for the help and your knowledge in getting me everything I needed without which I would have been lost. I would very much recommend, as I have done when asked, the services of these solicitors for any move you are planning." S. Reeve - January 2022

When I decided to return to live in Spain permanently I found that Brexit had made the whole process considerably harder than it was in the past. I needed to obtain a visa and I decided to look for help to achieve this. While watching a series of webinars on the Expat Network, I saw Alex Radford speaking about the process. His presentation was excellent so I contacted his company and I'm so glad that I made that decision. Melanie Radford contacted me and helped me through the whole process. She was patient with my questions and insecurities and always gave me clear, relevant information. The paperwork needed is complicated and time-sensitive and she cut through all that and made it clear. Having been through a traumatic time in my life, her approach was invaluable and I can only say I couldn't have achieved this without her help. Assisted by Monica and Laura, who were also professional and kind, I was able to arrive where I am now. I live in Spain, have my resident's card and am starting my new life. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, caring group of people to show you how to achieve Spanish residency then look no further. You've found them. It's the best decision you will ever make, I promise you. Thank you." Lynne Eyre-Bower - December 2021

We wanted to apply for Spanish residency and we were put in touch with Legal services in Spain. They took us through the whole process explaining at each stage what we needed to do. The service and support we received was excellent. I would highly recommend them." S Brazier - December 2021

Laura and Melanie - I thank you both again for your brilliant and fantastic-value service last month for my visa application. I’m certain that without your fantastic work, I would have made a number of mistakes completing the forms. Yes, thank you so much." R.E. Leslie- December 2021

We can highly recommend Melanie and the team at Legal Services in Spain, very helpful and gave us good sound advice all the way through the NLV process" Malcolm Corby - December 2021

"Massive thanks to Melanie, Monica and the whole team at Legal services in Spain in helping us achieve our dream of obtaining Spanish residency visas. They have provided an invaluable, well informed and extremely professional service through the maze that is the application process. Always available by phone and quick to respond to email queries, they were there every step of the way from assistance with all form filling, to clear and accurate instructions at each stage, even to the point of helping us overcome rule changes mid-way through. We would not advise anyone to ‘go it alone’ on this complex journey and we could not have hoped for a better team alongside us." Richard & Lynette - November 2021

My husband and I were searching for a way to stay in Spain longer than the 90 in any 180 day rule and we found Melanie Radford at legalserviccesinspain.com. Our initial enquiries were answered very quickly and we were given a quote for full support to apply for a Spanish Golden Visa which was the answer to our requirements in our circumstances. We quickly discovered that the quote was very competitive, but it turned out that the amount in no way compromised the excellent support we had from Melanie and Monica. They “held our hands” right through each part of the process and I am certain we would have found it difficult or impossible to deal with all facets of the application without them. Many thanks to Monica, Melanie and their team and we thoroughly recommend their services to anyone." Mrs G - November 2021

I found everyone I dealt with at legalservicesinspain.com acted in a friendly and highly professional manner. They were also very patient! I would certainly recommend them to others." Ian - October 2021

When we first decided to retire to Spain, we looked at the process to apply for our Non Lucrative Visa, which has become so much more complicated after Brexit and decided that we needed professional help with this. We contacted legalservicesinspain.com who assisted us in the process from start to finish. They provided us with a legal pack outlining their services and costs, the services which not only included assisting us in applying for our Visas in the UK but they also assisted us in applying for our TIE residencia cards once we arrived in Spain. They were so helpful and professional. If we had not contacted them and had their assistance I think we would not have continued in the visa process and would not have fulfilled our dream of a new life in Spain. We cannot thank them enough." - Ronnie & Ray Houston - October 2021

I just wanted to thank you and and the whole getspanishresidency.com team. The whole process was simple, clear and well supported by you and at no time did I feel any pressure or concern in obtaining my residency. With 2020 being a year of Covid and an end to the Brexit transition, it has not been an easy time for anyone, but this was by far the easiest and least stressful part for me. I thank you wholeheartedly for gaining my Spanish Residency and all the care and attention provided from start to finish including the “hassle” of translating documents. Thanks for everything." Mr J

Legal Services Spain made the process of applying for, and gaining my TIE card, and non lucrative visa simple and painless. The advice and assistance given at every step of the process was prompt, professional and efficient, and I will be using them again when I need to renew my Spanish residency card." - Steven C - October 2021

Earlier this year applied for residency. Was dreading doing this as so many comments on social media but all with different experiences/views! Instructed Alex & Fran and the whole process was a walk in the park! So straightforward, little in way of form filling and very quick visit to the police station to get the card – accompanied by Fran so no issues at all! Cannot recommend Alex & Fran enough!"

Great and efficient service! Spanish bureaucracy was / is an experience but we’re getting used to it. It was much harder than I expected so thanks for bearing with us as well (I also think the official UK government advice on the Brexit transition in Spain is pretty poor and makes the process sound much simpler than it really is / lacks detail). Thanks for booking the TIE appointments, that’s a massive help!" Mr Lee

I have taken specialist advice on a complex cross-border issue from Alex Radford on behalf of my client, a Professional Deputy. I found the advice and service provided to be excellent. Alex was able to use his expertise and local business contacts in Spain to carry out instructions promptly and effectively, with concise communication and at reasonable cost."

Just to let you know that we picked up our TIE cards 😊. Many thanks for all of your help with the process, much appreciated! We have no hesitation in recommending you guys!" Mr & Mrs Lattimer

Finding a reliable legal firm that has a broad service offering in Spain is not easy. Mylawyerinspain.com (MLS) has all of these elements and despite the broad service offering manages to retain a personal level of service. Our most recent requirement was for help in successfully navigating the implications of Brexit on our family. MLS took to time to listen to what we wanted to achieve and helped us assess the different options available to us. Once we had decided TIE cards were right for us they were with us every step of the way despite the challenges with logistics that Covid brought they helped us with visits to the police station and made sure we had the right documents at each step of the way. Not only do MLS have the knowledge and experience necessary they also deliver this in a very friendly yet professional manner. I would unreservedly recommend Alex and the MLS team." - Nick Sanders - August 2021

Your help and support was great from someone who has just collected their TIE cards from a no go zone! Thank you again for your help and continued support." - Mr & Mrs Rees

Please thank Melanie and Monica for guiding us through the residency process. They have been very reassuring and helpful throughout." - Mr & Mrs H - May 2021

Dear Monica and Melanie We are very impressed with the quality of your service. We just wish we had come to you before!" - Hilary Mackay - March 2021

A big thank you to Melanie and Monica! We talk about " getting the finger out" But your response was Amazing!! Thank you all sincerely!" - Gerry and Janet Buckley - March 2021

They succeeded in helping me to get Spanish residency after another company failed. This is an extremely difficult thing to do in Fuengirola these days, as the authorities make it almost impossible to get appointments, but they miraculously succeeded! Many thanks to both Mónica and Melanie, they did an excellent job and were very thorough with the documents." - Mr S - February 2021

Alex and his team are absolute superstars. From my first request for a call back consultation, they were efficient, friendly and professional. Buying a home and sorting out residencia in Spain, from abroad, was tough, especially during the pandemic. With documents expiring, a lockdown, rules changing all the time and dealing with my non-stop panicking; they took it in their stride and looked after us. Highly recommended. Thank you Alex, Melanie & Monica." - Mr Hussan - February 2021

We would highly recommend Legal Services in Spain and their sister company, My Lawyer in Spain. The friendly team were on hand to answer all our questions and made the process of purchasing a property in Spain so much easier. Thank you Alex and Melanie." - Mr and Mrs D
