Services Needed – Legal Advice/Recommendations Sought

I need an experienced person to arrange my tax, healthcare and residency in Spain also to change ownership on my jointly owned property and make a new will.
Please email me   proton male @ proton mail dot com      no spaces



Services Needed- Google Chrome Advice
My Google Chrome has stopped working – the icons are there, but when I
click on them nothing happens.

Everything else seems to be OK, but when I fire up the laptop, I see for a few seconds a small box to the rh lower screen, which is headed
“Failed to connect to a Windows Service” and underneath something to
the effect of
“Couldn’t connect to a Group Policy Client etc”.

It fades out too quickly to get any more.
I tried re loading Chrome, which seemed to be OK, but there is no sign
of it on my screen.
Can anyone please help me find the problem??
It’s rather annoying as all the things I normally use are on my Google
Chrome, and can be accessed by one click.  I can get there by Internet
Explorer, but it is a much longer way round!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
Jeremy, Algarrobo            melbury75 @ gmail.com



Services Available- Spanish Language

Do you have impending appointments for your doctor, or a specialist at the hospitals in Velez or Malaga ?
You should take an interpreter with you.

Most of the doctors speak a little English, some of them fluent, but almost all them prefer to have an interpreter there. The risk of not understanding everything that is said to you is too great. Don’t take that risk !
I give a complete service for a fixed charge , I don’t charge by the hour.

If you need it, I can pick you up and take you back to your home for a little extra.
My work in the hospital as a volunteer for fifteen years gives me the knowledge needed to arrange appointments, help with paperwork etc.  I also help with social services; registering for a doctor etc, and residencias, NIE etc.
If you think I can help, please , call me
Pamela.   609040709
