LIST OF LOCAL RESOURCES:

The U.S. Consulate General assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the following persons or firms. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department of State or the U.S. Consulate. The names appear in alphabetical order by last name. The information in the list on professional credentials, areas of expertise and language ability are provided directly by the providers; the Consulate is not in a position to vouch for such information. 

Selecting an Attorney:  It is wise to contact several attorneys and briefly describe the nature of the services you desire.  Before deciding which attorney to employ, ask for a written schedule of fees generally charged for the services you need.  If you don’t speak Spanish, determine whether the attorney is fluent in English.  Do not turn over documents or funds until you are certain that the attorney fully understands your legal needs and is willing to handle your case.  If you are unable or unwilling to hire a private attorney the court will assign you a public defender.

Assistance from the U.S. Embassy or Consulate:  Should your communication with a foreign attorney prove unsatisfactory a U.S. consular officer may communicate with the attorney on your behalf.  Complaints against foreign attorneys can result in the removal of their names from this list.  The United States Consulate cannot serve as your attorney nor dispense legal advice.  We cannot serve as a translator for legal declarations and proceedings.  If you do not understand Spanish, the Mexican authorities are required to provide you an official translator.  Or, you may wish to have available the services of your attorney, a family member, or friend to translate for you.

Coordination with Counsel in the United States:  American attorneys may not be in a position to represent your interests abroad, particularly because they will not be permitted to participate in foreign court proceedings under the laws of the foreign country.  American attorneys experienced in international procedure may be helpful in explaining the complex international issues involved in your case and some may have associates or partners abroad to whom they can refer you.

Dealing with your foreign attorney:  1) Find out the attorney’s qualifications and experience; 2) Inquire about how the attorney plans to represent you.  Ask specific questions and expect the attorney to explain the legal process in the country concerned, as well as the legal activities planned on your behalf, in language that you can understand.  Have your attorney analyze your case, giving you the positive and negative aspects and probable outcome.  Be honest with your attorney.  Tell the attorney every relevant fact in order to get the best representation of your interests.  Do not fail to ask how much time the attorney anticipates the case may take to complete; 3) Find out what fees the country charges and what fees are expected.  Some attorneys expect payment in advance; some demand payment after each action taken, refusing to proceed until they are paid.  Others may take the case on a percentage basis, collecting a pre-arranged percentage of the monies awarded by a foreign court; 4) Ask that your attorney keep you advised of the progress your case according to a pre-established schedule.  Remember your responsibility to keep your attorney informed of any new developments in your case.  Request copies of all letters and documents prepared on your behalf; 5) Do not expect your attorney to give a simple answer to a complex legal problem.  Be sure you understand the technical language contained in any contract or other legal document prepared by your attorney.

Complaints against foreign attorneys:  If the service of your foreign attorney proves unsatisfactory, in addition to notifying us you may address your complaints to the local foreign bar association.

Selecting an Attorney:  It is wise to contact several attorneys and briefly describe the nature of the services you desire.  Before deciding which attorney to employ, ask for a written schedule of fees generally charged for the services you need.  If you don’t speak Spanish, determine whether the attorney is fluent in English.  Do not turn over documents or funds until you are certain that the attorney fully understands your legal needs and is willing to handle your case.  If you are unable or unwilling to hire a private attorney the court will assign you a public defender.

Assistance from the U.S. Embassy or Consulate:  Should your communication with a foreign attorney prove unsatisfactory a U.S. consular officer may communicate with the attorney on your behalf.  Complaints against foreign attorneys can result in the removal of their names from this list.  The United States Consulate cannot serve as your attorney nor dispense legal advice.  We cannot serve as a translator for legal declarations and proceedings.  If you do not understand Spanish, the Mexican authorities are required to provide you an official translator.  Or, you may wish to have available the services of your attorney, a family member, or friend to translate for you.

Coordination with Counsel in the United States:  American attorneys may not be in a position to represent your interests abroad, particularly because they will not be permitted to participate in foreign court proceedings under the laws of the foreign country.  American attorneys experienced in international procedure may be helpful in explaining the complex international issues involved in your case and some may have associates or partners abroad to whom they can refer you.

Dealing with your foreign attorney:  1) Find out the attorney’s qualifications and experience; 2) Inquire about how the attorney plans to represent you.  Ask specific questions and expect the attorney to explain the legal process in the country concerned, as well as the legal activities planned on your behalf, in language that you can understand.  Have your attorney analyze your case, giving you the positive and negative aspects and probable outcome.  Be honest with your attorney.  Tell the attorney every relevant fact in order to get the best representation of your interests.  Do not fail to ask how much time the attorney anticipates the case may take to complete; 3) Find out what fees the country charges and what fees are expected.  Some attorneys expect payment in advance; some demand payment after each action taken, refusing to proceed until they are paid.  Others may take the case on a percentage basis, collecting a pre-arranged percentage of the monies awarded by a foreign court; 4) Ask that your attorney keep you advised of the progress your case according to a pre-established schedule.  Remember your responsibility to keep your attorney informed of any new developments in your case.  Request copies of all letters and documents prepared on your behalf; 5) Do not expect your attorney to give a simple answer to a complex legal problem.  Be sure you understand the technical language contained in any contract or other legal document prepared by your attorney.

Complaints against foreign attorneys:  If the service of your foreign attorney proves unsatisfactory, in addition to notifying us you may address your complaints to the local foreign bar association.

HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSIONS

If you are detained, arrested or are in prison and you believe your human rights have been violated in addition to contacting us at the Consulate you may also contact the state Human Rights Commission directly:

Click here for information on hospitals and doctors in Merida, Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, Cozumel and Campeche, Mexico (PDF 358 Kb).

Please be aware that the U.S. Consulate and Consular Agencies will NOT pay your medical bill nor mediate a billing dispute between you and the hospital or physician.  All doctors, hospitals or medical facilities, public or private, will require full payment for services to be rendered, in cash or by credit card, at the time of service.  Most are NOT able to bill your US insurance company for payment.  Rather, they will give you receipts for your payment so you may request reimbursement from your U.S. insurance carrier; be sure to get an itemized bill.  We have had many cases of U.S. citizens not allowed to discharge from local hospitals until payment is made in full.  If you believe you are being charged unfairly, you may contact the Mexican government consumer rights protection agency, PROFECO or call 01-800-468-8722 and ask for an English-speaking operator).

Medicare and Medicaid will generally NOT cover medical expenses incurred outside of the U.S.  For more information, please visit the Official Medicare website and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services and review the following document.

Many policies do NOT cover costs of air ambulance service. Additional insurance that will cover air ambulance/medevac service is strongly recommended for all travelers. It is a good idea to get a 24/7 phone number from your insurance carrier.

The air ambulance companies in the following list provide services from the Yucatan peninsula to the United States.  The U.S. Consulate in Merida assumes no responsibility for the quality of services or the fees associated with these companies. 

For a complete list of air ambulance companies please refer to the Medical Evacuation & Insurance Companies section here.

The Merida consular district comprises the States of Yucatan, Campeche and Quintana Roo. Merida is the capital city of the State of Yucatan and the main city in the area, although nearby Cancun is becoming increasingly large and important. Campeche is the Capital city of the State of Campeche, and Chetumal is the capital city of the State of Quintana Roo. All of the funeral homes listed are licensed to practice in Mexico, and have expressed interest in working with families of deceased American citizens.

The United States Consulate in Merida assumes no responsibility for the integrity or professional abilities of the firms whose names appear in this listing. The order in which they appear has no particular significance.

For the numbers listed below, when dialing from the U.S. you must dial 011-52 first. For example, to dial the first funeral home on the list below from the U.S. you would dial  011-52-999-924-6669. If that does not work, try 011-521, (as some cell phones in Mexico require the “1” after the 52).

(List as of June 2017)

The U.S. Consulate in Merida and U.S. Consular Agencies assume no responsibility for the integrity or professional abilities of persons whose names appear in this listing. The order in which they appear has no significance. To dial a phone number from the U.S. add 011-52 in front of each number. If that does not work, try 011-521 as some cell phone numbers in Mexico require the “1” after the “52.”

El Consulado de Estados Unidos en Mérida y las Agencias Consulares de los EE.UU.  no responden por la integridad o capacidad profesional de las personas cuyos nombres aparecen en esta lista. El orden en que aparecen no tiene ningún significado. Para marcar desde los EE.UU. favor de agregar 011-52 en frente de cada número. Si eso no funciona, intenta con 011-521 ya que algunos celulares en México requieren el “1” después del “52.”
