english speaking attorneys tenerife
Both lawyers (abogados) and attorneys (procuradores) are legal representatives, the main difference being that abogados represent and advise clients on legal matters from an office, whereas the procuradores will represent clients in a judicial case, if such a case goes to court.
The word procurador originates, in fact, from way back in ancient Rome - the Procurator. Their role is reflected in that of the barrister in the UK, or the attorney in the USA.
If, by any remote chance, you find yourself in jail, about to stand trial, you'll need a procurador. You need to contact the embassy or consulate of your home country, who will, hopefully, provide you with a list of procuradores and, if necessary, interpreters.
For any other matters, if there is a trial in the offing, I've put together a list here of procuradores who are able to speak English.
