Family Law and Individual Legal Services


Guzmán Ariza has always had a large focus on individual clients and their legal needs.  We know the challenges individual clients, whether local or foreign, face during the course of their lives and are prepared to counsel them on all their legal issues, whether they relate to purchasing real estate properties in Dominican territory, to estate planning, and personal services such as wills or adoptions.

Guzmán Ariza has eight offices located in the main cities and tourist areas of the Dominican Republic, which makes it the only law firm capable of offering personalized legal assistance to individuals needing their lawyers to be near and accessible not only in Santo Domingo, the capital, but also where they may reside or vacation.  We give special attention to closely communicating with our clients and understanding the issues that concern them in order to render the best legal service they deserve.
