List of Lawyers

List of Attorneys in Mexico City

Office of Citizens Consular Services | US Embassy Mexico City | 2007

The U.S. Embassy Mexico City does not assume responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of the persons or firms whose names appear on the following list. 

The U.S. Privacy Act, in general, precludes the Embassy from releasing information about U.S. citizens without their permission.

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 state and within each state appear alphabetically; the order of the list has no other significance.  The specialization of each attorney is listed along with other relevant information.   

Any attorney about whom the Embassy has received complaints is not included in this list.  Also, we are mindful of the problem of coyotes and no individual believed by the Embassy to be a coyote or associated with the coyote trade has been included.  (Coyotes are persons claiming to be or represent influential attorneys who can arrange a quick release from jail in exchange for a large amount of cash, but whose successes are limited to draining friends and families of their resources.)

Although we have used care in compiling this list, we cannot guarantee nor assume responsibility for 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.

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 Mexican attorney whose name is not listed, you can verify his/her legal credential and any complaints that have been registered with the Mexican Bar Association in Los Angeles, California (714 West Olympic Boulevard).  Tel: (213) 749-2889.  www.mabaattorney.com   

Attorneys in the US

To locate attorneys in the US, we refer you to the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory which can be viewed at www.martindale.com

Other Related Offices

Credit ratings can be obtained through local banking institutions and commercial reporting agencies such as Dun & Bradstreet, Inc., and the Chamber of Commerce (Camara Nacional de Comercio de la Ciudad de Mexico.)  A list of commercial reporting agencies is available upon request from the office of the Commercial Attache, US Embassy, Mexico, D. F., Mexico.

The leading commercial banking institutions in the Mexico City area are:  BBVA-Bancomer,  Banamex, HSBC, Scotiabank Inverlat, Santander Serfin and IXE.

Note:  In Mexico the title licenciado (abbreviated Lic.) is used to indicate a professional person, not necessarily an attorney.  All licenciados on this list are licensed to practice law.  The terms bufete and despacho refer to a law office or firm of lawyers.
