I have known David and Gabriela for over 5 years now and they are a wonderful, professional couple, I can’t recommend them highly enough. During that time David has acted as and still is my lawyer, he has handled all the transfers when I have bought and sold vehicles. He also represented me when I sold my property and has taken care of all my legal needs such as advising me and drawing up my will and power of attorney. At all times he has given me solid advice and represented me with the upmost care and consideration. I can vouch that he is discrete, professional, extremely knowledgeable and competent in his field and completely trustworthy and honest. Gabriela was my accountant during this time; she was always very organized and professional and did an amazing job for me. Again she was always very honest and helpful and I recommend her 100%. It is my pleasure to be able to recommend both David and Gabriela.
I have known David Zúñiga for 7 years now, and he is an attorney that I truly respect, trust and listen to relative to the laws in Costa Rica. He speaks perfect English and he has helped me with various corporations, either to set up or acquire, various mortgage and land purchases and helped my wife and I acquire our cedulas (residency cards) in Costa Rica. The time span for the cedula acquisition would have been about 5 months if my wife and I had both been here in Costa Rica during the process. Michael D. Lawrence 506.8718.3357 in Costa Rica
From real estate to the real ins and outs of employment law; plus accounting for my money while taking account of my business and personal needs, there is no one better at their professions than David and Gabriela. Being an emigrant from Canada means that I have had an almost vertical learning curve that only David and Gaby and their staff could help flatten and shorten for me: and very efficiently such that if possible, often times I know I can drop in to have my questions answered immediately or in an extremely quick turn-around time. What is even more important to me is their solid, professional advice that is based on the bottom line as well as many times over, understanding the quality service I need to also be able to recommend them from the bottom of my heart. I need honesty, integrity, trustworthiness; and the feeling that I am an important client regardless of the interaction at hand. These people do not just build my file: they have also built up my self-esteem and self-efficacy with sound and caring advice. These are the characteristics that David, Gabriela and staff have applied to and for me. They DO what they promise, they do it well, and they do it all with head and heart. TropicoLegal is the only firm I would use.
