I am writing you to ask if by any chance you know a Dutch speaking lawyer or notaire in Perpignan or the environment.
Thank you

Not terribly surprisingly, “there’s an app for that”. According the French notaires’ website, there are thirteen in France. The nearest seems to be at Flayosc in the Var, only a few hours drive away

Whether she’s any good, who knows. Flayosc wasn’t at the center of the universe, last time I was there, thirty-odd years ago.

By way of afterthought, do you really want a lawyer or a notaire? The distinction doesn’t really exist where I come from (the U.K.), but in France it divides the lawyers who do essentially formal things (writing wills, conveying ownership of houses...) from those who do “contentious” work, or at least potentially contentious work.

If you are involved in some sort of legal dispute, you probably want an avocat (equals lawyer in English). The French consulate in Holland has a list of practitioners in Holland ... ancophones

No doubt you could find the equivalent list for France, but I’m running out of enthusiasm.
