The firm ENRIQUE MONTERO ABOGADOS was initially formed with the encouragement and guidance of our mentor, Rafael Yllescas Melendo. In his position as Dean of the Bar Association of Córdoba, Sr. Yllescas was the founder and first Director of the School of Legal Practice that currently bears his name, and in which most of the members of the firm were trained.
“There are those who with sound advice prevent the evil of turmoil; those who with right decisions extinguish the fire of already fiery discords; those who guard the public peace. The consolation of the miserable depends upon them; the poor, the widows and orphans, find relief against oppression in their ways; their houses are temples where justice is worshiped; their studies, sanctuaries of peace; their mouths, oracles of the laws; their knowledge, the arms of the oppressed. Because of them, each retains what is his and recovers what has been lost; iniquity flees from their voices; lies are revealed, falsehood is rejected, vice is vanquished and virtue is upheld.”.
