Raul O'Farrill, A notable attorney practicing in several Mexican cities as well as the U.S., was retained in 2003, long after the deepest of issues took root in North Beach. Two satisfied clients within the boundaries of North Beach were quoted, as being extremely satisfied; together they represented about 150 homeowners in North Beach's sub-communities of Playa Dorada and its neighbor, Playa Miramar. This by itself indicates 150 satisfied clients. The Mexican, (Agrarian Law) legal system is complex much like the Common Law system used in the U.S. There are pros and cons involved with both systems; one example in the Agrarian system is the way the facts are presented to a judge, in writing, and not to a jury, thus eliminating the ability for flamboyant showmanship skills influencing decisions. O'farrill's continued involvement through many disputes shows evidence of satisfied clients and no more implicates him than to imply that Johnny Cocheran was an accomplice of O.J. Simpson.

Born in Mexico City on October 3rd, 1963, Raúl comes from a prominent Irish-Mexican family proud of their long roots in this country.
...
Raúl relates the story.
...
Raúl has fond memories of Romulo saying, "As busy and successful as he was, he always remained humble and very kind.
...
Raúl has a very internationalist perspective, a world-view that began taking shape when he was quite young."When I was 18 I left home to live in Europe where I spent almost two years living in Pool, Dorset County, England, improving my English, becoming fluent in Italian, and meeting people from all around Europe.I then traveled all the Western countries -- and even some Communist countries like Hungary -- which was a landmark in my life.I learned how to value -- and learn from -- different cultures."Returning to Mexico, Raúl immediately began his higher education, which is extensive and international.With degrees granted from the Centro Universitario Mexico, Universidad Iberoamericana, Universidad Panamericana and University of California, Berkeley, Raúl ranks among Mexico's most widely educated attorneys.He particularly values his time at Berkeley saying, "Berkeley was, of course, the most different of these schools for me, and my first long-term exposure to life in the United States.I learned quite a lot there, not just the academics related to American law, but the cultural aspects of American life."
Raúl founded his law firm, O'Farrill & Associates, in 1985 in Mexico City, but rapidly became interested the legal aspects of Mexican coastal property ownership by non-Mexicans, and in serving an international clientèle.
...
In 1997 Raúl -- along with his partner Carlos Dávalos, who Raúl refers to as his "best friend and adoptive family member" -- decided to make O'Farrill & Associates a fully bi-national firm, and opened offices in Phoenix.

...
In 2000 Raúl further broadened the international scope of his legal knowledge by being licensed by the Supreme Court of the State of Arizona as a Foreign Legal Consultant, becoming the first Mexican attorney to do so.
...
Raúl's was a pioneer in the evolution of Rocky Point's legal culture, and has played a major role in resolving difficult title disputes and creating proper legal structures for irregular subdivisions.But his role in the evolution of ownership mechanisms that serve non-Mexican homeowner-investors in Rocky Point extends far beyond the legal services that O'Farrill & Associates provides.Another of his contributions has been in his role as Founder of OTP Trust, his bi-national title-verification and trust processing firm.
...
The same cultural sensitivity and customer service commitment that Raúl has made a hallmark of O'Farrill & Associates business practices extend to the activities of OTP Trust.
...
As would be expected of a man as widely educated as Raúl, he is a big believer in the importance and transformative power of education, and serves as Vice President of Education for AMPI ( Asociación Mexicana de Profesionales Inmobiliarios), Mexico's oldest association of real estate professionals."Education is the key to ethical real estate practice, and is the soundest assurance that our communities' non-Mexican homeowner-investors will have a perfect experience of Mexican property ownership.Ongoing professional education is central to AMPIs mission, and I feel proud of each of the brokers and agents I have had the blessing to teach, train, and learn from.It is worthwhile noting that every member of AMPI is also a member of The National Association of Realtors, NAR, in the United States.I am certain -- from my experience over more than twenty years in the majority of major tourist markets in Mexico -- that our AMPI agents are the best trained, best educated, sales force dedicated to serving non-Mexicans not only in Rocky Point, but in all of Mexico!"
Raúl has continued to pioneer innovative investment structures and strategies including: creating secure mechanisms that allow the use of funds from self-directed IRAs for purposes of Mexican coastal real estate investment; a new project that will facilitate non-Mexican's financed purchases of Mexican real estate with loans that are designed to be interest-free for ten years; and his close association with the noted Rocky Point investment specialist Heidi Wosak in her innovative new full-service real estate company specializing in marketing innovative investment programs such as Puerto Peñasco Real Estate and Yacht Clubs, which has brought a newly affordable ownership-model for coastal real estate to our community.
...
Raúl is highly bullish on ADITUR PPs future contribution to our community saying, "Our mission is to help guide the development of Rocky Point, with a special emphasis on protecting buyer investment by promoting safe and sustainable market development; representing community interests; and cooperating with the government of the state of Sonora in efforts that will insure that Rocky Point becomes the largest, best, and more important tourism destination in Mexico.We are honored to have Reyel Taylor of Sandy Beach Resorts as our first President, Mario Mendez of Las Palomas as our Secretary, and Miguel Guevara of Puerta Privada as our Treasurer -- three true pioneers and seminal architects of Modern Rocky Point!We already have important accomplishments: one of our organizations first actions was to reach agreement with Aero Litoral to inaugurate scheduled commercial air service from Rocky Point to Los Angeles International Airport, Las Vegas, and Hermosillo.While we all look forward to the opening of the new international airport, thanks to ADITUR PP Rocky Point has international air service now!"
Raúl is also highly bullish on Rocky Point's future.
