Who we are

Founded by joint partners Julia Emmerich and Miguel García Mateos, Emmerich & García Mateos Abogados is a multilingual law firm with a strong European and international focus. So not surprisingly the majority of their clients are foreign residents and homebuyers.

Born in southwest Germany, Julia studied law both in Saarbrücken and at Málaga University, while Miguel – who hails from Salamanca in Spain – was also brought up in Germany where he received his doctorate degree in law.

About us

With a wealth of experience between them, Julia Emmerich and Miguel García Mateos founded their own law firm on the Costa del Sol in 2006.  Before that, Julia had previously worked with a prestigious company of lawyers in Fuengirola where, since she speaks English, German and Spanish, she was responsible for the firm’s foreign clients.

Miguel’s first role, meanwhile, was with a start-up internet company where, as a member of the legal department, his responsibilities included intellectual property, copyright and constitutional issues. Having completed his doctorate, he then joined American automotive giant Chrysler, where he was based at their office in Stuttgart.

“A wealth of experience for your peace of mind”

Our philosophy

Committed to always going the extra mile for every client, we strive to provide the most comprehensive and exceptionally professional legal service at all times. Emmerich & García Mateos Abogados is not a big law firm, nor would we want to be as we prefer to take a personal approach and provide a bespoke service based on close client contact.

We like to think of ourselves not as a family-run law firm, but rather a family of lawyers with our clients’ best interests always uppermost in our minds. You won’t be passed from lawyer to lawyer because we believe in continuity. But as every member of the team is briefed on each and every case, if your own lawyer is not available when you call, one of their colleagues will be able to answer your questions knowledgeably in their absence.

Similarly, if one of our clients needs the specialist services of our legal associates Uncibay Abogados, one of our lawyers will always be present at every meeting.

And because we believe in building a relationship with all our clients, we are always here to help them later on, and are only too happy to offer our assistance with matters such as property management, parking fines and more.      

“Once an Emmerich & García Mateos client… always a client!”
