It is with great pleasure that I write this unsolicited letter of appreciation for Rosario Araya, who, along with her retired judge partner don Fernando, helped me and 45 other shareholders of a Southern Pacific Coast development in Costa Rica save our homes from an almost certain foreclosure. Rosario impressed us with her uncanny ability to zero in on the essence of the legal complexities of the case, of which there were an abundance. She speaks excellent English and was able to articulate a very complicated situation in terms we lay people could easily understand. Don Fernando and she came up with a solid strategy on our behalf which they pursued with diligence, research and creativity. There were a number of obstacles that arose along the way, but Rosario kept at it and found workable solutions in every instance. As her clients, we could not have found a better guide and spokesperson to navigate the legal minefields of Costa Rica. And there can be no better recommendation for a lawyer than for the client to reach a conclusion where we could declare with disbelief and gratitude: Mission Accomplished!
