Legal Assistance

Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

If you are arrested, ask the authorities to notify the U.S. Consul in Portugal. Although we cannot interfere with the Portuguese legal system, we will work to protect your legitimate interests and ensure that you are not discriminated against. Consular officers can provide you with a list of English-speaking attorneys and can also contact your family on your behalf.
