Who we are
Myra Cecilia Azzopardi Q.Inst.Pa
Qualified Paralegal. Founder and volunteer at the Citizens Advice Bureau Spain organisation. : Bilingual - English / Spanish
“Myra Cecilia Azzopardi is a highly qualified paralegal, bilingual in English and Spanish. She is the founder and dedicated volunteer at Citizens Advice Bureau Spain, an organisation committed to assisting and supporting the expatriate community.
Driven by her experiences helping expatriates during political campaigns, Myra recognised the challenges they faced due to language barriers and the complex Spanish bureaucracy. This led her to establish the Costa Advice Bureau in 2006, aiming to provide a more extensive service.
Over the next seven years, it became evident that the expatriate community required a reliable source for support and information. In response, Myra initiated a project to create a resource hub for expatriate residents, non-residents, and visitors seeking advice, assistance, and accurate information—resulting in the formation of Citizens Advice Bureau Spain.
Myra emphasised, ‘Among the various challenges expatriates face in Spain, legal issues are often the most significant. Finding a suitable lawyer with expertise in specific areas of service can be daunting.*. Myra emphasized, ‘Among the various challenges expatriates face in Spain, legal issues are often the most significant.
To address this concern, she pioneered the Lawyer Smart Card, granting expatriates—whether they reside in Spain, own holiday homes, or are just visiting—access to essential legal services and protection. This initiative underscored the necessity for personalised consulting, culminating in the inception of the Spain Info Card, turning the vision into reality.”

In 1985 Janette Mitchell left her civil service job with the UK government to embark on a new life in Spain. On arrival Janette paid out a lot of money for legal assistance only to be disappointed in the service she received.
Janette opened a bar which was the first ex-pat business in a town in southern Spain. From the bar, Janette began assisting other members of the community.
In the 90s Janette held a position in one of the tourist offices linked to the Town hall. After gaining knowledge, Janette went on to work in a foreigners office for a local government. It was obvious that she was chosen for her experience as a troubleshooter for Expats of all nationalities in Spain.
This inevitably lead to Janette opening up her own office to assist inform and advise the ex-pat community. Janette then proceeded to work with a company who administer a large number of communities around Spain.
It is no surprise that Myra and Janette put their heads together to find a solution for those residents in Spain and residing abroad with interests in Spain, facing difficulties in not only finding a lawyer to instruct, also the right lawyer for their particular needs
“Janette has assumed a pivotal role in the company’s operations, focusing on delivering practical solutions to clients.
