    Default Need a bilingual lawyer

    Does anyone know a good lawyer that can help a friend of mine in the DR with a busniness transaction? My friend needs a lawyer that can read and speak English and Spanish.

    Where is your friend? If in Sosua, I recommend Fabio Guzman or Guido Perdomo. Both speak English and Spanish. Of the two, I'd suggest Fabio Guzman because he has a bigger office and handles a wide variety of legal matters, whereas Perdomo is busy with real estate transactions in his one man office.

    My friend lives in Santo Domingo but if there are no lawyers available in the captial, am sure he would have to go to Sousa. Could you give me his telephone number.

    Thanks

    Ruth, I believe you can find a lawyer closer to Santo Domingo than Sosua. Since you posted in the legal section, why not wait to see what Fabio says; he is the lawyer answering questions in this section. In fact, he has an offices in Santo Domingo and on the South Coast.

    Thumbs up Felix Mercado! Puerto Plata.

    If you can make it work from POP, I suggest you try Felix Mercado; work 261 0291; cell 360 6018. He speaks Spanish, English, French, German, & Japanese! [you read that correctly - Japanese!!]. He serves as a court translator in 3, 4 languages. And, . . . he's honest!! By "honest":
    a. I don't mean to indicate that other DR lawyers recommended to you by DR1 members are not or will not be honest;
    b. that many or most DRs are not honest, esp. when dealing with Gringos!
    Go slowly! Be careful! Word of mouth is the best advertising.

    Speak to Fabio Guzman, his company has offices in Santo Domingo.
    He has a 1/2 British/Dominican lawyer on staff that is fluent in English.

    I just referred him to some friends of mine and they have said nothing but great things, especially after using one or two other Santo Domingo lawyers previously on their case.

    Default Tiberius, about Felix Mercado.....

    .....add Dutch to his impressive list of languages. I totally support your comment about Felix's integrity. He was the judicial interpreter for Marianne Telfer, the family were delighted with his work. He also helped them handle a previous lawyer they had who was not so honest. I think it speaks volumes when a Dominican lawyer will support a gringo family who will NOT be staying here, against a fellow Dominican lawyer. Full marks, Snr Mercado!
