I've found both Christianna Tsigaloglou and Konstantinos Nikolantonakis pretty good.

Nikolantonakis was recommended to us in 1998 and we're his clients to this day. Excellent lawyer, versatile, excellent/perfect English and 'all round good bloke' in my opinion.

If you decide to go to Kostas it can be slightly confusing to find his office despite the helpful location map on the website. The Feidias building is behind a café (in normal times usually busy) on the street. You need to go through the alley in the middle of the café building. Once through just keep straight ahead past a couple of ground floor offices and you'll get to the lift where there are floor and office numbers.

Perhaps some background would help. I have used three different lawyers in Crete.

The first one dealt with my purchase of a plot of land. She is now a Notary so not relevant.

Later I mostly used Christiana for official translations. I then asked her to check all my applications forms for an IKA pension, which I had completed myself, as I wanted to make sure I had really understood what was required. She spent about 30 minutes going through everything and refused to charge me. She also offered to come with me to IKA if I had any problems. I think Scooby also used her in a contract dispute situation and I believe you could say that she was "very forthright" in dealing with the other party.

I used Kostas to process probate of my late wife's will through the Greek court. Several years ago foreign nationals were constrained to follow Greek inheritance rules for property in Greece. A new law was passed that allowed foreign nationals to follow the inheritance rules of their own country if they wished. I believe Kostas was the first lawyer in Chania to successfully process the estate of a UK citizen who had died intestate using UK inheritance rules, which is why I chose to use him rather than Christiana.

I would happily use either of them again.
