After many years of uncertainty, Hasan was able to finalise the matter and bring it to a close. We are very pleased with the outcome and with Hasan's professionalism”
  • We thoroughly recommend the services of Hasan and his associates. It if had not been for the invaluable help and guidance given to us by Hasan, in all likelihood we could now be in a position of having to fight to save our house and secure our Kocan. We are now in receipt of our Kocan and look forward to spending many happy times in Northern Cyprus
  • We approached Hasan for help when our home was under threat of auction by the bank due to a mortgage on the land taken out by the builder and not repaid. We now feel secure and are very grateful to Hasan
  • Thank you Hasan Alkan for securing our Kocan, without your services we could not have achieved this. 
  • We would like to thank you for representing us for over four years, in the fight to obtain our Title Deeds and at last we have it, you have worked tirelessly, and would recommend you for being a conscientious, honest, reliable Advocate to anyone here in the TRNC. GOD bless you.
  • I used an advocacy company in Northern Cyprus for about 8 years to secure my Kocan without success. I changed to Hasan Alkan  who secured both justice and our Kocan in Kyrenia within one year. I would recommend Hasan’a company for anyone seeking justice from a very complicated legal system in Norhern Cyprus.
  • We have had Alkan Law Firm acting on our behalf In North Cyprus he has won the case in the lower court and now he is representing us in The High Court as the Bank is appealing the Judgement we won in the Kyrenia District Court . We wish them every success.
  • I started my legal trials and tribulations in Cyprus effectively in 2006.  My family bought  numerous assets and we hired many different lawyers sometimes simultaneously both in Kyrenia and in Nicosia. I personally went through seven lawyers before finding Hasan (Alkan Law Firm). When you eventually find Hasan you've arrived. It's the top of the tree and you can't go any higher. My recommendation to anyone looking for legal advice is save yourself the pain, go directly to Hasan's firm and stay there.
