Attorneys in Cozumel attorneyIf you need to contact an Attorney in Cozumel, Mexico, here is a list to help you get started. It is wise to contact several attorneys and briefly describe the nature of the services you want.  Before deciding which attorney to use, ask for a written schedule of fees generally charged for the services you need.  If you don’t speak Spanish, decide whether the attorney is fluent in English.  Do not turn over documents or funds until you are certain that the attorney fully understands your legal needs and is willing to handle your case.

Dealing with your foreign attorney:  1) Find out the attorney’s qualifications and experience; 2) Inquire about how the attorney plans to represent you.  Ask specific questions and expect the attorney to explain the legal process in the country concerned, as well as the legal activities planned on your behalf, in language that you can understand.  Have your attorney analyze your case, giving you the positive and negative aspects and probable outcome.  Be honest with your attorney.  Tell the attorney every relevant fact to get the best representation of your interests.  Do not fail to ask how much time the attorney anticipates the case may take to complete; 3) find out what fees the country charges and what fees are expected.  Some attorneys expect payment in advance; some demand payment after each action taken, refusing to go ahead until they are paid.  Others may take the case on a percentage basis, collecting a pre-arranged percentage of the monies awarded by a foreign court; 4) Ask that your attorney keep you advised of the progress your case according to a pre-established schedule.  Remember your responsibility to keep your attorney informed of any new developments in your case.  Request copies of all letters and documents prepared on your behalf; 5) do not expect your attorney to give a simple answer to a complex legal problem.  Be sure you understand the technical language contained in any contract or other legal document prepared by your attorney.

 

Complaints against foreign attorneys:  If the service of your foreign attorney proves unsatisfactory, in addition to notifying us you may address your complaints to the local foreign bar association.
