    Urgent Lawyer Recommendation

    Hi all..

    I don't live on the island but have a property there. Without receiving any prior notice or legal notification I have been told that some kind of court action relating to the "Marshall" has been brought against me in respect of an apparently unpaid bill. This notification has been published but I have not been able to personally see it. Clearly the "Marshall" plays some key role in the Aruba Civil Court system. I have not lived 'properly' on the island and am not familiar with the legal system. It's all a bit scary really. I'm not likely to be on the island for a number of months and feel very concerned.

    I obviously need to get a Lawyer but has anyone got any previous experience with "Marshalls" or knowledge of what their role is ?

    Also I could just look in the Aruba Yellow Pages but has anyone had any positive personal experience of a specific legal company that deals with court financial matters like this.

    Any personal knowledge or help in this area would be greatly appreciated ?

    Thanks

    EG

    Not an exciting story really.

    Dispute with prominent local construction company which I will not be naming. They did a particularly poor job, AND caused $1500 damage to my property in the process. I made full payment minus the $1500 damage and after 8 months of emails desperately trying to get them to make good the damage so I could make full payment, I wrote to them gaving them 28 days to put things right informing them that if they didn't I would get someone else to do it and withold the the amount to fix things. I got no further reply from them following this. A year later some form of legal process appears to have taken place without me being informed.

    I will deal with it, pay the necessary legal fees etc but its just so depressing. Thanks to you all for your help..

    Same here. Can you collect Attorney's fees in Aruba if you win a civil case?

    I will ask...

    Thought I was told a few years ago that this was not possible in Dutch and Aruban law (mostly I was told in order to reduce 'vexatious' litigation ).

    I am rather now hoping that this is not the case and that Lawyers fees can be reclaimed. Will let you know...
