Hi. My name is Jasmin and I’m the founder of FIDES Legal Services.
I was born in the Netherlands, but my family moved to Marbella when I was still young. At 18 years old, I moved to the United Kingdom, where I studied double honours English Law with Spanish Law at the University of Surrey. I was able to participate in an Erasmus exchange program, allowing me to study part of my year at the University of Valladolid in Northern Spain. This experience not only allowed me to fully immerse in British culture, but also introduced me to nuances between the different legal systems across Europe.
After finishing my studies, I returned to the Costa del Sol to pursue my legal career. I dedicated the following 8 years to a prestige law firm in Puerto Banus, gaining knowledge and expertise in the issues that many ex-pats face on a day-to-day basis here in Spain. Having honed my craft and finding my niche, I decided to open my own office here in Estepona.
Not only do I speak Dutch, English and Spanish fluently, having experienced life from a multi-cultural perspective, I am better equipped to tailor the legal support that I offer my clients in a way that best suits them.
I look forward to us working together.
Hi! I’m Maria and I am the Office Manager here at Fides Legal Services.
I am responsible for the for the administration and co-ordination of documentation, appointments and communications to support the team and our clients with their legal operations.
I am originally from Venezuela but moved to Spain after completing my studies. I lived in Madrid for three years where I worked for an immigration law firm, gaining firsthand experience in providing legal assistance to non-residents and foreigners. I then moved to the Costa del Sol where I have gained knowledge in the local real estate market and the common issues that are faced by international expats.
I provide assistance and advice to our clients tailored to their specific needs. I would be delighted to support you through your particular case, and look forward to working with you in the future.
