Ms Jardim´s track record in citizenship is highly impressive. Her hands-on approach, calm demeanour and sensitivity helps put everyone at ease. Her passion for the subject is highly infectious.

I advise on all routes into Portuguese citizenship, by descent, residence or marriage. I am well aware that citizenship carries a deep symbolic value across generations. In a world of increased mobility and uncertainty, citizenship is also a plan B for the safety of family and wealth. That is why I feel passionate about “turning strangers into partners”.

Rita was recommended to me for my investment pivot from Asia to Portugal. I find her timely, clear, thorough, professional, and highly effective, particularly to those new to Portugal and its laws. She has proven herself time and again.

Real Estate

From the full legal due diligence, through all aspects of transferring legal title of real property until completion, we assist our clients in navigating the process of buying real estate in Portugal. We strive to make this as reassuring as possible, bridging gaps in cultural and legal differences. We endeavour to build good relationships with property brokers and the seller´s legal advisors without ever losing sight of the independence required from a lawyer and steering clear from any conflict of interests.

Pro Bono

I strive to provide value through a professional service that is priced to reflect experience, dedication and qualifications. However, for those demonstrably unable to pay for my legal services I am proud to provide them on a pro bono basis, trusting the integrity of anyone who claims financial hardship and the need for Portuguese citizenship. I do this because I can. And I believe that what goes around, comes around anyway.
