If you're looking for a lawyer to help you with a Portugal visa application, you found the right place! I unsuccessfully tried two other lawyer firms before settling on Lamares, and I'm so glad I did. Clear and attentive communications and expert advice about the whole process. Muito obrigado Diogo!

I have been working with Diogo on my Portuguese residency application for 1 year and the process has been handled always in a professional manner. He cares about his clients and his calm demeanor always helps when dealing with difficult immigration agents. He’s great at what he does!

I've worked with Lamares, Capela & Associados for numerous processes (from work visas and nationality to real estate) and I can't thank them enough for their commitment to my objectives and their help along the way. As someone with plenty of experience navigating Spanish bureaucracy, I knew that before moving to Portugal, I would need help with everything here and I am glad to have worked with Diogo, Ana Sofía and André—they're a great team who are attentive and truly care about making your new life in Portugal a reality.

Outstanding service supplied by Ana and her team. We managed to get our citizenship sorted in record time during a difficult period in the pandemic. They were super responsive and helpful and guided us through every step of the way. Very happy!!

Yes. It is possible to provide company domicilie.

Yes. At the end of 5 years, it is possible to obtain portuguese nationality.

I’m interested!
