Although the firm commenced practice in Pietermaritzburg at the beginning of January 2014 it’s directors, Pete and Lee, have both practised as attorneys in Pietermaritzburg for their entire professional careers.

A decision has been made to concentrate on our areas of expertise to allow us to provide an excellent service to clients.

Our biggest asset is our staff. The advantage of starting a new practice is the ability to carefully select the right staff, each with their own strengths, who have bought into our philosophy of teamwork and providing clients with exceptional service.

Client Liaison Officers

In our endeavour to provide a service to our clients the firm has employed two client liaison officers, who are appointed commissioners of oaths, Sherri Page operating in the Pietermaritzburg and Howick areas and Viv Williams in the Durban, Umhlanga and Highway areas. Where clients are unable to call at our offices an arrangement will be made for either Sherri or Viv to call on clients to sign documents.
