I know David Houseman personally and highly recommend him to anyone that needs a competent CPA in Costa Rica. Regarding his article on Friday, he is 100 percent accurate. As a 15-year resident of this beautiful country, I can say with certainty that the Costa Rica legal system is completely worthless. I was the victim of a $250k scam between my building contractor and the Instituto Nacional de Seguros, and spent a small fortune trying to get justice. You name it, criminal fraud, civil suit, arbitration, negotiation, countless attorneys, I tried it ALL.
To quote Mr. Houseman, “I hope in the years to come the competent conscientious attorneys will improve the system and prove me wrong.” Sorry, David. Not going to happen.
