My clients come to my office


What is your preferred mode of communication with your clients?



Have you ever done an online video call with a client?



What do you love most about law and being an attorney?

I love helping clients with legal problems. The order law brings into the world brings me joy. I love the diversity of issues that we deal with on a daily basis, even in a specialized area of the law.


Would you recommend becoming an attorney as a career for school-leavers, and why?

Yes, but only if you are prepared to work extremely hard, start at the bottom and work your way up, and if you do not get discouraged easily. You have to be able to push through during hard times and be resilient enough to deal with extreme stress.


What qualities should South Africans be looking for in their attorney?

Integrity, diligence, good communications skills, proven experience in their field.


In your view, what are the major problems and/or opportunities facing the legal profession?

The saturation of the market, the legal system (courts, master's offices, and other role players) not working at their optimum levels.


What fields of law do you, as an attorney, mostly focus on?

Property law - conveyancing mostly. Estates


From your experience, if you could cite one of the biggest reasons South Africans need advice from an attorney, what would that be?

Law is a speciality and the answers that you need are not always clear and simple. Therefore you need a qualified and experienced attorney.
