We are a Cape Town Based law firm who strives to develop personal and dependable relationships with clients and colleagues. We deliver legal services of the highest standard while adopting a cost effective approach in the interest of our clients.

We accept instructions in most areas of law but in particular in matters requiring litigation in the High Court, Administration of Deceased estates and Family law.

As a family business, we understand the countless meanings of the word family. People have many ways of defining a family and what being a part of a family means to them. Families differ in terms of economic, cultural, social, and many other facets, but what every family has in common is that the people who call it a family, makes a profound statement of the importance of those people.

We specialise in family law and are there to assist you with any family and personal legal matter when you need it most. (i.e. relocation, child abduction, maintenance, pre-nuptial, civil union and co-habitation agreements, adoption, parental rights and responsibility (custody) disputes and related family law matters)

We also have a dedicated estate and trust department with a multi-faceted approach involving a diverse range of services, including Estate planning and advice on applicable Tax issues. (i.e. Estate Duty, Donations Tax and Capital Gains Tax, Administering trusts and curatorships, Drafting wills and Administering deceased estates.)
