Referential List of Attorneys

Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

The U.S. Embassy Attorney’s List

The list is the result of recommendations received by the Embassy, as well as direct contact by the Embassy to attorneys. Attorneys are listed by district and alphabetically; the order of the list has no other significance. Even though attorneys are able to practice law anywhere in the country, the list is divided by districts to facilitate their contact. The English proficiency of each attorney is measured as follows: native speaker; fluent; excellent; very good; good; basic.

Any attorney about whom the Embassy has received complaints is not included in this list. Although we have used care in compiling this list, we cannot guarantee nor assume responsibility for the payment of any fees or the competence or integrity of the individuals whose names are listed. For this reason, we appreciate receiving comments, favorable as well as unfavorable, concerning the performance of attorneys on the list. Such comments will assist us in the annual review of the list. You may send us an email to amcitsguatemala@state.gov.

If you are involved in a criminal matter as a defendant and you do not have economic resources to retain an attorney, you are entitled to have appointed a defense attorney at no cost provided by the Public Defense Institution (Instituto de la Defensa Pública Penal).

Attorneys not on the list

This list is not exhaustive. Many reputable lawyers have chosen not to be included. Thus, no negative connotation can be drawn from the absence of a name from this list. If you choose a Guatemalan attorney whose name is not listed, you can verify his/her legal credential and any complaints that have been registered with the Guatemalan Bar Association (Colegio de Abogados y Notarios de Guatemala).

About attorneys in Guatemala

Attorneys at law are one of the biggest professional guilds in Guatemala. As of today, there are approximately 29,000 licensed attorneys along the country and each one of them can act as a Notary. Even when is not common to obtain a written contract, it is very important for U.S. citizens to clarify the fee for each service.

DISCLAIMER

The U.S. Embassy in Guatemala assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the following persons or firms. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department of State or the U.S. Embassy.
