I have practiced law in Costa Rica for over seventeen years. Prior to moving to Costa Rica in 1998, I had practiced law in Victoria, B.C., for fourteen years. Over the thirty-one plus years that I have practiced law, I have acquired a wealth of legal knowledge, largely imparted to the ex-pat law clients (primarily U.S. and Canadian) that I have served in Costa Rica.

My main areas of practice have been Residency Applications, property rentals and purchases, company incorporations, business documentation, and the like, all oriented toward the ex-pat community, and particularly those ex-pats who are recent arrivals.

I am now stepping-back from offering a full-service law practice and instead, offering to share the legal due diligence information required for the legal processes that one would encounter in moving to Costa Rica, through seminars and online, or personal consultations.

I chose Tamarindo for my new home, in Guanacaste’s Pacific “Gold Coast”, the prime location for ex-pats moving to Costa Rica, located near the Liberia International Airport (LIR).

I have modeled my new legal offering on the International Living Conference Business Model, an organization that I represented as their Costa Rica lawyer for over twelve years. The goal is to produce informed ex-pats, who will understand the legal processes involved in moving to Costa Rica, and will “get it right the first time”.

Limited attendance seminars are offered once per month, on the second Tuesday of each month, at a location in the Gold Coast area. The seminar for Tuesday, February 11, 2020, will be held at the Tamarindo Diria Hotel Convention Center, from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM.

The seminars consist of a one hour narrated PowerPoint presentation, followed by a one-hour open question and answer session, covering the following topics:

  • How To Choose Your Correct Costa Rica Lawyer, or Realtor
  • The Differences Between The U.S./Canadian And Costa Rica Legal Systems
  • How To Apply For Residency Immigration Status In Costa Rica
  • The Legal Process For Renting Or Purchasing Property
  • The Procedure and Benefits of Incorporating a Company
  • The Costa Rica Banking System And Escrow Account Process
    Online Consultations and Personal Consultations in the Flamingo, Tamarindo, and Playas Del Coco Areas also available.
