"Extremely satisfied with the way my case was handled! I was in contact with Vincent, who was kind, patient and very knowledgeable. He took time to explain things in detail, was very quick to respond to any questions I had and took swift action. Most importantly, he managed to get things done, which impressed me after my experience with numerous failed attempts I made through other legal firms! In short, I couldn’t be happier regarding the handling and the outcome of my case.”

Fiona Unz

“Extremely professional and honest. Competitive rates. Vincent fully understood my needs and provided the best possible solution. My issue was solved and assistance was given beyond completion. He cleared up all my doubts even after the closing of the dispute. As an Expat and totally new to Dutch law and practices, I fully recommend Legal-Expat, as they are trustable and reliable professionals.”


“I contacted Legal Expat by submitting an info form on their site regarding an issue with my tenancy agreement/lease. I was not sure they would reach out but they did on the same day. Vincent was professional and very helpful in discussions with my landlord, and I am happy that the discussions led to a full refund of my deposit! If you are an expat having issues with your landlord, I would highly recommend reaching out to Vincent and the team at Legal Expat!”

Wandia Gichanga

“Vincent offers a great service for expats having trouble with their landlord in the Netherlands. We hired him to deal with our lease termination to make sure we received our full deposit back and after reviewing our contract he discovered that our landlord had been illegally overcharging us for almost 2 years. He was able to reach a settlement and recovered our funds within 30 days. If you’re having problems with your landlord I highly recommend contacting Legal-Expat.”

What types of legal issues can Legal-Expat help me with?

Legal-Expat can assist you with a wide range of legal issues. Our core areas of expertise are rent law, employment law and construction law, but we have successfully helped expats in the most unique cases (like issues with accidents, car dealers and even airlines). 

However, we do not advise on matters of immigration law, family law, criminal law and public law.

How much does it cost to work with Legal-Expat?

Traditional legal practices always use an air of mystery around their fees. And for good reason. They usually charge EUR 200 - EUR 400 per hour, and ask for a retainer of EUR 1.000,- or more. We work very differently, and offer our services for affordable fixed fees, which are only a fraction of the costs most traditional legal practices would charge.

For example: the package that is chosen the most is our “No More Stress” package, in which we offer all our out-of-court work for only EUR 499,- (ex VAT).

Want to know typical costs in a case like yours? Don’t hesitate to contact us as we are always happy to explain.

Do I have to be an expat to use Legal-Expat's services?

No, we are happy to assist anyone who needs legal help, regardless of their nationality or residency status.

How long does it typically take to resolve a legal issue?

The length of time it takes to resolve a legal issue depends on a variety of factors, including the complexity of the case, your legal position and the willingness of parties to find a solution. However, we always work diligently to achieve a timely and favorable outcome for our clients and the vast majority of cases is solved in a matter of weeks (or sometimes even days.)

Can I schedule a consultation with Legal-Expat outside of regular business hours?

Yes, we understand that our clients' schedules may not always allow for a consultation during regular business hours. That's why we offer flexible scheduling options, including evening and weekend appointments. Because we do our consultation via videocall, we can be much more flexible than most other legal practices in this regard, meaning you usually have an answer to your questions within one day.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes, although our fixed fees are designed to be affordable for everyone, we understand that legal fees can be a financial burden for some clients. We offer flexible payment plans to help make our services more accessible.

How can I get started working with Legal-Expat?

The first step is to fill out our easy-to-use contact form. From there, we will always respond within 24 hours (usually much faster), and most clients are amazed at how efficient our services are designed. If necessary, we’ll also schedule a consultation, during which we will discuss the details of your case and determine how we can best assist you.

What sets Legal-Expat apart from other legal practices?

At Legal-Expat, we pride ourselves on our personalized approach to legal services. We understand that legal issues can be stressful and overwhelming, and we strive to make the process as smooth and straightforward as possible. Additionally, our team of legal experts has extensive experience working with clients from diverse backgrounds, which allows us to offer a unique perspective and tailored solutions.
