SOLICITOR Oscar Anton runs his practice, which was established in 2004, from smart offices in the centre of Javea, but also has offices in Valencia. With four other solicitors working with him he is able to cover all aspects of legal work, including conveyancing, wills, taxes and litigation.
He has a partner who specialises in criminal law, one who specialises in town planning, another in family litigation (divorce, inheritance etc) and one in common law.
Oscar explains that, inevitably, a large percentage of his clients use his services for tax matters. His plans for 2016 include offering these clients valuable extra services at no additional cost. Legal advice on any of the areas covered by the practice will be absolutely free.
If the client then needs the services of one of the solicitors they are guaranteed to be charged the minimum legal fee as prescribed by the Law Association. If they need to take the matter further they’ll be told what the costs will be.
They will not be obliged to use the services of the firm though. They can choose to go elsewhere if they wish, for example if the problem is in another town. This offer is available for non-residents as well as residents.
For Oscar, it is important that all the services of his law firm are available to his clients. He wants them to have peace of mind, and feel comfortable they have all legal matters covered. He also wants to stand out from other law firms in the area by offering this level of service.
This peace of mind is especially good value for couples. The cost to present taxes for an individual is €89. The cost for a couple is €97.
So, for less than €100 per year, not only will your taxes be presented, but you will have a tax representative in Spain, free legal advice, free consultations, and the guarantee of minimum fees should you need to use the legal system.
