Cristóbal Colón no pudo descubrir América, porque no tenía visado y ni siquiera tenía pasaporte. A Pedro Álvarez Cabral le prohibieron desembarcar en Brasil, porque podía contagiar la viruela, el sarampión, la gripe y otras pestes desconocidas en el país. Hernán Cortés y Francisco Pizarro se quedaron con las ganas de conquistar México y Perú, porque carecían de permiso de trabajo. Pedro de Alvarado rebotó en Guatemala y Pedro de Valdivia no pudo entrar en Chile, porque no llevaban certificados policiales de buena conducta. Los peregrinos del Mayflower fueron devueltos a la mar, porque en las costas de Massachussets no había cuotas abiertas de inmigración. Estas desgracias ocurrieron en tiempos remotos, mucho antes de que la globalización aboliera las fronteras.

Legalcity is an office of attorneys, advisers and consultants specialized in foreign law, though dedicated also to other legal branches. Through this, we give solution to the needs of foreigners born inside or outside the European community, and also to an increasing number of Spanish people that trust in us.
The headquarters of Legalcity are found in Barcelona, although we also have an office in Madrid. We count with more than ten years of experience. During this period, more than 21.000 persons of 102 different nationalities who reside in Barcelona and its metropolitan area have received our services.
Legalcity is synonymous with experience, of humane treatment, of quality.
Our challenge is to give wings to the illusions of those who have come to this country in search of a better future, to help them legally and to give them confidence and support, because we believe in justice, and in the equal application of it to mankind, without distinguishing religion, origin, skin colour, sex or sexual preference.
Whenever we have a client in a Center of Internment who is to be expelled because he is in Spain in an irregular situation, the team of Legalcity is mobilized regardless of the hour or whether it is a festive day. Today, we can say that we do not have one single client, who has been expelled to his native land from the Center of Internment. Many companions and clients ask us “but how do you do it?”. The response is easy: we put determination into our work and we know how to use the legal tools in a correct way and at the right time. If it is necessary to request to a judge “medidas cautelarísimas” it is done, and if it is necessary to present a “Habeas Corpus” we do not hesitate to do so. The experience supports us.
If you visit the section “OWN JURISPRUDENCE” you will see the most out-standing cases that have possessed the legal aid service of our team. You will see real cases of indemnifications for values of thousands of euros. You will find many true histories in which Legalcity has had the opportunity to represent their clients. Because the clients are our major asset. For Legalcity it is an authentic pleasure and a challenge simultaneously, the fact that thousands of persons entrust us their legal and administrative problems. This confidence makes us grow.
When we say that Legalcity is the solution for foreigners in the heart of Barcelona and Madrid, it is because our own clients have baptized us with these words in the course of the years.
From this web-site we want, from this very precise moment, to welcome you to Legalcity: The solution for foreigners in the heart of Barcelona and Madrid.
