Many cases are settled by bribing judges. However, we do known Dr. Juan Carlos Urenda and his firm is very highly regarded in Bolivia. He takes on national and international civil, corporate and criminal cases. He also speaks English. He’s a graduate of American University and Harvard Law School. He practiced law in the U.S. His firm includes several other lawyers and he has offices in La Paz and Santa Cruz. Dr. Urenda has written several interesting publications and books on the Bolivian legal system and constitutional law.
