“Everything I heard about Lissa’s professionalism, flexibility, availability, and good graciousness was emphatically true! Lissa was able to sign for my property contract and stayed on top of the dealings with the Roatan municipality. She was quick in responding to my inquiries, and my not being present never became a concern for me. I have never felt so comfortable in dealing with legal matters. I have always known she has my back. No doubt! Next, we will work on residency. Thank you for your good nature and professionalism, Lissa. I look forward to continuing our working relationship!”

“I can only highly recommend Lissa Asfura as the attorney who managed to obtain my residency. Her knowledge, diligence, experience and professionalism really made the whole process pretty painless to say the least. Even though, in my particular case, there were several obstacles to overcome, such as me not having a residence nor address in my country of citizenship and some missing documentation from a previous application, she managed to complete the whole process in just three months. She was encouraging, friendly, organized and very thorough throughout the whole process and gave me realistic timelines and expectations from start to finish. Lissa was even on-hand on the day I had to collect my temporary residency card – just in case! I knew, from the outset exactly what paperwork I was supposed to produce and there were no “unexpected” costs. Her attention to detail was impeccable, her regular updates on progress were reassuring and her focus on task was steadfast. All this was delivered in a friendly, compassionate and genuinely caring manner. I hope I never have to go through the process again but, if I did, I would not consider working with anyone other than Lissa. Very grateful from the UK.”

September 1, 2019 - Residency

“When my wife first introduced me to the Caribbean, I immediately knew this is where I wanted to retire. After researching many Caribbean destinations, we stumbled upon Roatan. It looked very promising so we started our research, to the point I drove my wife nuts at times. In February we purchased a lot and starting selling everything we owned in the states preparing our move to Roatan as an expat. We knew we wanted to obtain legal residency and not deal with a 90-day Visa 4 times a year. My realtor was very helpful and suggested Lissa Asfura as an attorney to obtain legal residency. Our house in the states pocket sold meaning we now only had 60 days to move out. It was so hectic selling everything we owned, house, cars, furniture, belongings. This stepped up our move to Roatan to June 1st. I contacted Lissa and she suggested a video call. She was very helpful and explained the complete process. I talked to her several times between February and June but with it being so hectic selling everything, I had zero time to get together the papers she suggested I obtain before we move. June 1st arrives and we are on the island meeting with a builder to get the home construction started. A week later we met with Lissa. She was so helpful and relieved all our stress explaining everything in detail. She assured us everything will be fine and she will obtain the paperwork we needed from the states. 3 ½ months later we have our residency card which many people thought was incredible that it happened so fast. We came to the island with nothing but our cat and 2 carryon bags. Thank you so much Lissa for making our retirement dream come true and obtaining legal residency so painless and easy.”

“Lissa is the best! I was expecting the residency process to be complicated and time consuming, but Lissa made it so easy. She communicated with me every step of the process and I was approved in less than two months. Lissa is not only professional, but also super nice. She is a pleasure to work with and I can't recommend her highly enough.”

“Clear directions on what documents I had to get and where to get to them. Super efficient service. I got my residency in less than 2 months (I think) once I had submitted all my papers. Any question I had was promptly answered. Residency is not cheap wherever you go. May as well pay the price to get it done right. I am super happy with the whole service.”

-Victoria Snyder

“When we decided that Roatan was going to be our new home, Kathy and I understood the importance of doing things right. First and foremost in our minds was getting our residency right. After much research, lots of confusion, and a few horror stories we decided to go with one of the most well respected residency lawyers on the island. Lissa was a godsend. Fast, effective, efficient, and a stickler for details. Nothing and we mean nothing slipped through the cracks. She guided us through the Honduran bureaucracy with amazing speed and insight. Lissa continues to send us updates and reminders which are truly helpful by keeping us on the right side of the law. Honduras is an amazing place but it can be slippery when you don't know the ways things are done. Lissa knows the ins and outs of the system and will deliver. Kathy and I can wholly recommend Lissa Asfura as your residency attorney.”

“Lissa Asfura provided much more to us than we expected during the purchase of property in Roatan. She accommodated our tight schedule on many occasions. She was very thorough and patient in educating us on Honduran laws and procedures. We felt confident we selected the right attorney after our first meeting. Lissa has the infrastructure and processes in place to communicate, transfer and store documents instantly and securely. She is very fluent in English, both verbal and written. Most of all, it was consistently evident that she cared about us as valued clients. We would recommend Lissa Asfura to anyone seeking legal services.”

So we were so happy and pleased with the speed, accuracy and cost of our residency that was obtained through your services. Lissa, I am so thankful that someone referred us to you. Not only are you very professional but you are a pleasure to work with. I would do it all over again with you.”

“We contacted Lissa prior to moving to Roatan in December 2018. She was available to discuss our requirements for a "Retiree Residency" via FaceTime video chat. She outlined all the requirements and guided us through the process of obtaining all the required paperwork necessary for our residency permits. Once we arrived on the island we sat down with her in her office in Plaza Jackson and passed over all our papers. She processed and filed the paperwork and in a little over 3 months we had our residency papers! We are very pleased with the results and the speed at which she was able to obtain our residency. Thanks so much Lissa!”

We would highly recommend Lissa not only for her professionalism, but because it was a pleasure working with her. Thank you Lissa.”

“After hearing many stories of months and months to get a residency application "through the process" it was a very pleasant surprise to see the caring and efficiency of attorney Lissa Asfura.She is very knowledgeable in this area of Honduran law and was able to explain some things to us that no one else either could or had bothered to mention.We felt at ease returning to the U.S. after meeting with Lissa in March of 2018 knowing what needed to be done.  It was only about five weeks before we got word that our application had been accepted and we would be receiving provisional documents at her office for when we returned to the island. We picked that up the first week we were here in September 2018 and had our final cards by October. One of the fastest trips "through the process" I've heard of. Thanks Lissa! You have been a wonderful help!” 

-Joe & Cathy Weaver

“Lissa helped my family and I obtain residency. I had no idea how to go about obtaining residency, visa extensions or what documentation was necessary. When I reached out to her she responded immediately and had me in for a meeting. She started by explaining in detail the types of Residency an expat can obtain in Honduras and helped me decide which way would work best for my family. Lissa was very easy to work with and very helpful throughout the whole process, even offering assistance at the bank and recommending an accountant. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone; she is patient, friendly and very knowledgeable. Thank you Lissa!”

We had been having so many problems with our corporation, accounting, residency issues, and contracts for our workers and even banking issues. Lissa was by our side and solved them all. We don't know how we could get along without her. We trust her completely. In a few words, Lissa has a sincere servant heart."

“When one reads the internet of the questions and then the comments from folks wanting to make a life on Roatan, the tone and concerns are quite evident. Moving anywhere can be a challenge but to move to Roatan to make a new life it can be a bit stressful. Fortunately with people like Lissa and her knowledge of the local requirements this move can be manageable. In particular, Lissa is a true professional and well versed especially when one wants to get their residency established. She is fully aware of the needs and takes charge of the process. There are many posts of the difficulties some have in getting this done. We had no such issues. Our residency was applied for and returned promptly. We couldn't be happier. If one wants someone who can help guide you through the process, we would go to Lissa for sure and so should you.”

“I learned of Ms. Asfura and her high quality work through many other expats that have lived on Roatan prior to us. Based on these recommendations, we met with Ms. Asfura initially to help us complete the process of residency. She made the process very clear with not only a concise check list of what we needed to do on our end but, was available for any questions we had and ensure all the proper steps and paperwork were completed based on the Honduran requirements. It was nice to know that she knew exactly what to do and the timeline this would require. She has also been a great help with again answering questions and ensuring we have the proper paperwork for our annual renewals of residency. Based on our personal experience with Ms. Asfura’s legal expertise, we have not only referred her to many additional people that need help but also have used her for other legal services ranging from question of HOAs, Estate Planning, etc.   I have written her or stopped in her office for other questions or concerns and I have found her always to be readily available and so knowledgeable on the laws of Honduras. I cannot recommend Ms. Asfura enough for your legal needs.”

“Lissa Asfura, Attorney at Law, came highly recommended by many people and was said, if it has to do with Residency, she is the one. She assisted in making this process as easy as it could be possible as well as making the renewal process easy to complete. However, being a full time resident for the past several years, we have found that Ms. Asfura is very knowledgeable and helpful on many other levels besides just residency. If we have a question or a need, she is our attorney to go to. I have appreciated her being readily available when needed and it is a great help that she is so knowledgeable, and professional.”
