Did you initiate the contact?

What was it regarding?


Do you have the name of a person in the firm claiming to be a solicitor/attorney?

This company telephoned me. We were scammed by a company Re Claim. to the sum of £10,000. This company Greenges say they are trying to get this sorted out for us, hopefully to get some of our money back. There have been so many phone from so called companies in Spain take money from, therefor we are making sure this Greenges are genuine.

Thanks for your reply.


There don't actually claim to be a practice of solicitors. They are a claims handling company who will then put you in touch with their solicitors. The handling fee of £850.00 is quite steep though and while there is nothing to suggest that they are not genuine you can probably get yourself a better deal elsewhere.


Abogados is the Spanish word for lawyers. There is a national bar association of abogados called Consejo General de la Abogacía Española ( a regional bar association called Colegios de Abogados where all abogados have to be registered. The national association will be able to refer you to the appropriate regional association where your claim is to be issued.


If you decide to proceed with the above company then you can check the details of the solicitors they use by contacting the above associations to verify their credentials.

Personally I would just instruct a solicitor directly by finding them throught the associations.

Further your information, the lawyer with this company Greenges is Jose Lara Cabello. Registered is Calegio de Malaga- lic no. 5696. Thank you
Expert:  Thomas replied 5 years ago.

As I have said above you have to ask which of the regional bar associations he is registered with and then check independently with the association to verify that he is an abogados.

Really though, I would still think it cheaper to instruct a solicitor directly rather than through a claims company.
