Pfister Attorneys -5

We are a Cape Town-based law firm dedicated to fostering personal and reliable relationships with both clients and colleagues. Our commitment is to provide legal services of the utmost quality while adopting a cost-effective approach for the benefit of our clients.

Our practice encompasses various areas of law, with a particular emphasis on cases that require litigation in the High Court, the administration of deceased estates, and family law matters. As a family-owned business, we comprehend the diverse interpretations of the term “family.” Families come in various forms, each unique in economic, cultural, social, and other dimensions. Nevertheless, they all share a common thread – a profound acknowledgment of the significance of the people involved.

Our specialization lies in family law, and we stand ready to assist you with any personal or family-related legal concerns when you need them the most. This includes issues such as relocation, child abduction, maintenance, prenuptial agreements, civil unions, adoption, parental rights and responsibility (custody) disputes, and other related family law matters.

Additionally, we boast a dedicated estate and trust department with a multi-faceted approach that encompasses a wide range of services. These services include estate planning, advice on pertinent tax matters (e.g., Estate Duty, Donations Tax, and Capital Gains Tax), administration of trusts and curatorships, as well as drafting wills and administering deceased estates.
