CLIENT: Angeliki Kappatou
TESTIMONIAL: We have been working with L.G. Zambartas LLC  firm for nearly 10 years and we have built an excellent business relationship based on trust earned. Our company is a Cypriot based company with offices in Greece and commercial exposure to international markets. Hence, it is not always easy to understand different cultures and attitudes, and we do not fit the typical corporate mould. L.G. Zambartas LLC is an excellent firm to work with, making themselves available at times that suited the client needs, they are very helpful and responsive.  L.G. Zambartas LLC appreciates the importance of putting our company in the best position to reduce the disruption to our business and employees. I would easily recommend L.G. Zambartas LLC.

TESTIMONIAL: “Dear Louise and George,
Back in January of this year I was looking for a firm of lawyers to take over representing myself and my wife in Cyprus so we could finally secure the title deeds of the property we bought from Aristo Developers in 1999. I was unhappy with our original solicitor as he didn't seem to be on our side and was difficult to deal with and quite often unresponsive to my correspondence - consequently I was not left with much confidence in him.
I did some research and then contacted your offices via your website and received a prompt response. Barbara Sofokleous answered my questions and within no time at all we had the ball rolling and served our old solicitors with a discharge notice. Over the following months Barbara was absolutely brilliant and kept me filled with confidence that the process was moving forward and being dealt with properly and efficiently.
We have had our title deeds for some time now and this email is long overdue. Barbara is truly an asset to your business and my wife and I are very grateful to have found your law firm to represent us.
I hope our relationship is a long one.
Kind regards,
October 2015

You have just made two people very happy!
House purchase is always a very stressful time and I think it reasonable to say that purchasing property in Cyprus has received its fair share of very adverse publicity. You have witnessed at first hand our almost paranoia with regard to Title Deeds and ownership, something which in UK we wouldn’t even give a second thought. How the people of Cyprus has allowed this situation to prevail is baffling to all outsiders.
It is only our love of Cyprus that has given us the drive to pursue our dream. Some of our friends quite frankly think we are mad to do this at this particular time. We think this is precisely the right time to do it.
Your company was not chosen by accident. Many months of research went into choosing exactly the right person we thought we could work with and have complete confidence in. We are very pleased to say you did not disappoint at any level.
Kind regards,
Irene & Charles Rowson.

CLIENT: Andrew Hodgkin
I would like to say a huge” thank you” to you, not just for the legal expertise, but for the wisdom and general advice around this whole case. I’m saddened that what started out as a very exciting journey in 2002 was blighted all along the way by the developer’s need to make as much money as possible, regardless of their actions (right up until the last!), but your independent, honest and objective advice has restored my faith. I suspect without your advice I would have caved in long ago and received next to nothing – as it is I am nearly whole. Needless to say I will recommend you and your practice wherever I can."
Very best regards
Andrew Hodgkin

CLIENT: Gerry Smith
TESTIMONIAL: "We sold our villa in Cyprus and the lawyers that we used let the purchasers move in to the property but never transferred the funds from the sale to us.  Some two weeks after moving in, for reasons best known to themselves, the purchasers moved out and the lawyer (who was acting on behalf of both parties) then proceeded to cancel the sale.  Utterly dismayed with these events, needless to say we  had a falling out with the lawyers.  The property market by this time had suffered a crash and the banks were no longer offering mortgages, to compound the issue we were told that no one would consider buying the property without  title deeds.
We had no idea as to how to go about obtaining the title deeds so went about researching on the internet.  It was during the course of this search that it became apparent that many people were in the same boat as us, unable to obtain deeds, and having to deal with unscrupulous lawyers and property developers. It was on a website offering advice that I came across Louise’s contact details.
Louise took on our case and has worked tirelessly over the past two years to finally facilitate the sale of our Villa.  As the previous lawyers had failed to cancel the sale properly, this left us in a position of legally not owning the villa as our contract of sale had not been re-lodged with the land department in Cyprus.  Louise immediately went about correcting this and then negotiated with the Bank to obtain a waiver to protect us from the property developers mortgages on the land, this along with many other tasks required to make the villa a saleable proposition.
Having just completed the sale of our villa I can honestly say, I do not know how we would have done it, had we not had the good fortune to find Louise.  Louise is without doubt and excellent Lawyer but moreover, she is honest and trustworthy. Louise has always been very quick to respond to our emails and has finally released us from what was a living hell of owing a property in Cyprus that we were unable to sell.
I cannot recommend Louise highly enough, her hard work, excellent local knowledge and fantastic communication has resulted in a great outcome for us.  If you have a villa to sell or, any other legal problems relating to property in Cyprus contact Louise without delay."

CLIENT: Neil Beckett
TESTIMONIAL: ''We employed Louise Zambartas to act on our behalf at the death inquest for a family member who had died whilst on holiday in Cyprus.  Even though we live in the United Kingdom there was never a time where we felt that we were not in control of the situation or felt in the dark about what was happening in Cyprus and that is all down to the correspondence from Louise.  Louise was sympathetic to our situation and that gave us support and relief that someone did care and that our family member was not just a name on a passport but was a father/son/partner to all of us.  We did not get the answers that we needed, however that was not down to the lack of effort from Louise Zambartas.  We would like to say that if there is anyone in need of the support and efforts of a Lawyer you will find everything that you need in Louise Zambartas just as we did.

Louise thank you so much for the effort and professionalism you demonstrated to resolve the long-standing difficulties I had with Roda-Maria; I only wish that we had met five years earlier.  Additionally I would like to express my thanks for the swift conclusion regarding the business with SS.
You and the staff of your offices with whom I had dealings were always friendly, courteous and efficient, a rarity in Cyprus I feel!
Thank you all for helping me through a particularly difficult time."
Kind regards,

Kindest regards
Mr Mrs Bowen.

Just a short note  to once again thank you for all your help and assistance you have provided over many years and especially over the past, very fraught  year. To be able to  talk directly to you without notice and resolve some difficult questions over the phone, whilst I was in meetings, was just amazing and allowed me to progress without delay and further stress of  rescheduling.
Your service has been exemplary, your advise, spot on and speed of your replies to my emails and phone calls, even out of hours, never seizes to amaze me.
It was a pleasure to have actually met you a number of years ago and I look forward to popping in once again, to thank you in person, when my recent situation is completely finalised.
Many Kind Regards
Best Wishes

Many thanks again

CLIENT: Andrew and Mary
As we've  been both successful sellers of a property without deeds and now very happy buyers thanks to you, we owe you a great deal.
You were so helpful long before we were clients when you gave us advice on our property problems of the time. Having had a bad start with a developer's lawyer and a one-sided contract, we wouldn't have been able to move forward at all without your expert help. It was only the fact that we had you on our side that led us to contemplate buying again. Once again you've managed to steer us through safely and successfully.
Having a totally honest, diligent and highly skilled lawyer is everything when it comes to property in Cyprus. If there is one single thing we'd advise anyone, it is this.
Like many people, we didn't get it right first time but with your help and advice, our circumstances have turned completely around. We have no hesitation in recommending you wholeheartedly to anyone  in need of similar assistance. Kind regards
Andrew and Mary

CLIENT: Chris Moore
Eila and I would like to express our grateful thanks to you and your team for the outstanding service you have provided over the sale of her property on Cyprus. From the initial advice on the sale process to preparation of the sale contract, to administering the processes of sale and to repatriation of funds the service has been clear, responsive and above all very good natured. We appreciate there have been some unexpected challenges to deal with but these have been handled with great patience and good counsel.
Thanks especially to Maria, Liz, Charis, Lina and Aria (and any other colleagues I may have missed) for all their diligent work which has served to give us confidence at every step of the way.  We recognise that this is probably a very small contract in the scheme of things but that has not detracted from the quality of service you have provided.
Finally a big personal thank you to you for overseeing the process and for saving my sanity when matters took unexpected turns!
With warm wishes
Kind regards

CLIENT: Vitaly Vidavsky Olga Vidavskaya
Thank you very much for your service and all your support in purchasing a holiday home / investment property in Cyprus. We really enjoyed working with your team and especially with you. Your professional approach and sparkling sense of humor provided us with guardianship and guidance through the uncertainties of buying a property on an island during the period of political and economical instability. Your team clock-work performance encouraged us to utilize your firm services as a one-stop shop for a couple of other legal tasks we have had to accomplish.
Thanks to your attention to the details, we luckily avoided "betting on a wrong horse", which may happen to the overseas buyers, as we understood. This saved us a painstaking exercise of (potentially) reversing the deal, which would be quite an issue, provided that we permanently reside in Russia.
Without a hesitation, I would happily recommend your services to anyone thinking about purchasing a property in Cyprus. With your participation in the process, it becomes hassle-free and possible to be executed even remotely via Internet. We wish you and your colleagues Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Cordially Yours

It has been so reassuring to know that whilst we are in the UK you have been negotiating with the bank with fantastic efficiency and have settled our case on favorable terms, the calls and emails informing us of progress has been so helpful and it has all been handled so sensitively.
We cannot thank you enough for all your assistance and can assure you that we shall be recommending your firm and you personally to anyone who needs assistance in dealing with the banks in Cyprus in relation to property matters.
Thank you once again

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help in gifting our property to Alison and Bradley.  You made the whole process so easy for us with your professional and friendly approach when, normally, any visit we have made to the Land Office in the past has been somewhat challenging!
We would certainly come back to your firm should we need any help in the future and look forward to seeing you again when we come to collect the new deeds next year.
Yours sincerely

I found the details of LG Zambartas LLC on the British Foreign Office website as a recommended firm of lawyers. Louise Zambartas handled my case and the service was excellent. This was a very stressful matter and Louise helped to bring the matter to a successful resolution that I was very happy with. For any overseas individuals looking for a trustworthy, reliable Cyprus based law firm I would definitely recommend the services of LG Zambartas.”

CLIENT: Diane Willows
TESTIMONIAL: I have been a client of Louise Zambartas for many  years following a very  complex property buyout, Louise faced and dealt with an unquestionable amount of complicated issues which would have challenged anyone, yet we got there smiling in the end.  Years later on deciding to sell the property I would have no other solicitor than Mrs Zambartas, she has helped me through one of the biggest ordeals of my life. Louise  is thorough and very professional on all counts. I have always been able to contact her and I received answers to my many many questions in a clear and concise way. I can’t recommend her enough. If your after a solicitor then look no further, you won’t regret it, I certainly haven’t.

CLIENT: Geoff & Val Peddie
TESTIMONIAL: Having received recommendation, we were delighted to appoint Louise Zambartas to handle the sale of our holiday home in Cyprus. Louise delivered what we viewed as quality in legal service; combining sound knowledge of both Cypriot & UK law, together with excellent client care. Louise and her team also communicated directly with the Tax Office and Utility Companies, which again, relieved us of this burden. Given we were living in the UK at the time, we relied mainly on electronic communications which were always answered in a timely (usually the same day), and the process completely stress free. I would therefore have no hesitation in recommending  Zambartas Law for all aspects legal services.

Just to say a big thank you to you and your fantastic team in helping me to achieve getting  our long awaited title deeds. After  our previous solicitor it was very refreshing to deal with your firm whom we found attentive and professional at all times answering all our questions to which there were many!!

I will certainly contact you if we require a solicitor in the future. Once again thank you all
