This is in my opinion is probably the best law firm in South Africa. Hands down!! They were the only ones who showed... willingness to assist me with my tenant problems.Their rates are some of the most affordable amongst law firms. In fact, for the service you get. I could say that their rates are even cheap.Within 24 hours of my email they had responded and on a Sunday. Notices and communication to tenants were done 24 hours later. I get continuous updates on my cases sometimes on a 'daily' basis.After the passing of my Beloved Mother. I have now been able to restore order in my property.Special thank you to Elly and Simon with you by my side I know I will win any case.May God bless you!!read more

My wife and I engaged Simon and his team to help us with our overseas relocation. The matter involved being able to... take my step-daughter with us.From the start, we knew we had approached the right people and for us, the greatest strengths of Simon and his team is their genuine respect, empathy and caring for the well-being of our daughter and the compassion they showed to us as a couple that was going through one of the most important phases of our lives.They were always extremely transparent about what the process would entail and that helped us immensely to be able to understand our timeline and what we needed to do and also the costs involved. Without that, it's difficult to properly plan for something like this.We have recommended Simon and his team to our family and friends and that is probably the greatest testament to the trust we have in them and their abilities. In the end we felt as though we had made lifelong friends which I believe is not common in this field. We thank them from the bottom of our heart for helping us get through this and also get the outcome that we wanted.read more

SDLaw (specifically Fritz) assisted us (trustees) with attaining new letters of authority for a trust from the masters... office in cape town during April 2022 - during a time in which attaining such letters was proving extremely difficult. We were very impressed with the communication (both style and responsiveness), and are beyond grateful as the letters were received before the anticipated date and with no additional effort from our side. I can highly recommend the team who undersell and overdeliver - which was refreshing. Thank you.read more

I have a rental property in Cape Town area. The tenant stopped paying rent and gave me endless problems. Avoiding... calls, sending me mails giving notice and not moving out on the agreed date. This dragged on into a third month. My first priority was getting the tenant (who was now legally squatting) out of the property. I sent a mail to SD Law to assist with the eviction process and was contacted within hours. Fritz and Cronje gave me a call to discuss the matter and requested some documents to get the facts. A very professional lawyer's letter was drafted the next day and sent for my review. SD Law sent the letter to the tenant via email, whatsapp and registered mail. They called the tenant and discussed the matter and managed to get the tenant to agree on a date to move out. I received a detail mail on what was discussed and agreed. Over the next few days they followed up via mail to check in on the situation an progress. Within a week the property was vacated! Their assistance to negotiate with the tenant was worth every cent and cost much less than filing for eviction (not to mention all the time and effort it saved). If I ever have problems with a tenant SD Law will be my first choice.read more

I was very impressed with the service rendered by attorney, Cronje Oosthuizen. After I emailed my query for assistance... with a very personal dilemma I found myself in, I received a prompt response. He called me up and he had a very compassionate empathetic nature, like talking to an old friend who was concerned and offered his help and sound advice. I was impressed with his legal knowledge with regards to my problem and the reassurance I got from him that I don't need to stress anymore. He took his time to explain every aspect of the Act regarding unlawful eviction and answered my questions with ease. He even took the time to explain in detail the costs of legal action. He went as far as sending me a Letter confirming what we discussed and offered me more advice. I would highly recommend this young attorney and would feel confident with him representing me in future as my attorney at any Court of Law. God bless him to soar to great heights in his professional career.read more

Other than always being reassuring and taking my emotional health into account they were professional and always got back to me in a timely and professional manner.I was ready for a long and arduous journey but by following their expert advice the whole process was done and dusted in no time.One last thing, the morning of my divorce it felt like I was getting dressed for a funeral but Simon and his team made me feel at ease and relaxed. It’s by far one of the most difficult things I have had to do and I am just so glad that I did not have to do it alone, they were always by my side.Many thanks to Simon and his team…Chrisread more

My experience with SD Law will change your mind.My mother actually contacted them after my arrest on a Sunday morning... and she was told that they do not cover our area. About a few minutes later she received another call from Simon to say that someone will come out to assist us.On Sunday, I met Clara at that moment I did not realize that she was my guardian ANGEL. She ask me what happened and explain everything as she recorded me and told me she will try her best to get me bail. Which she successfully got me out on Bail.When I arrived at home my mother received a call from Simon. I was amazed by the follow up and feedback. I asked Clara the cost to represent me in my trail and it was quite expensive, but I went with Clara as she knew my case and gave me very good advice.The Monday in court, the prosecutor said the case was withdrawn. We left the court room and Clara took the time to explain to me what had happened. I was still nervous as now I have a criminal record.  On Tuesday,  Clara gave me a phone called which she had not obligation to do. As she had completed her duties which was paid for. She explained to me the process to get my finger prints removed as well as sent me an email stating what I should do for this process to happen.The feedback and response via telephone and email was so clear and helpful that I would recommend this firm to other. The service was worth every cent.Today I followed Clara advice and was informed that my case was not withdrawn. I was confused and heartbroken. I am not worried I have complete confidence if the matter is brought back to court that SD Law will be my best choice to get my name cleared.YOU CAN NOT PUT A PRICE ON FREEDOM.I will pay double to SD Law as my experience with them was out of this world. After the worst experience I have ever gone through and gave up on believing people actually care. SD Law showed me there is still hope and people who care.THATS HOW GREAT THEY ARE.Thank you Simon and Clara for everything you have done for me. I will definitely keep you on stand by.read more

As an accommodation establishment based in Cape Town where SD Law represented us in High Court. We had a rather urgent... situation when we were preparing to evict a guest who over a length of time had rental arrears issues which our own attempts were futile to resolve. The guest was an advocate himself and we were aware that we would require formidable defense ourselves when urgent litigation was launched against us in an attempt to thwart the eviction process. Simon and Fritz ensured our rights were protected and that our business integrity was kept intact. They arranged junior counsel to make the legal process more reachable in affordability for us and due to the nature of the defense we required Simon made himself available and present all the way through, advising and formulating strategy with counsel and Fritz was always readily available only a phone call, message or email away to offer sound strategy and advise. Simon and Fritz with counsel to be at the forefront in our representation in matters before the court, were our legal team as a whole, who had such a genuine depth of knowledge in law and not law alone and who were well versed in navigating legal matters provided us with the adequate defense we needed against an urgent interdict and urgent spoliation application. In short, to say the insistency of our opposition made for a rather difficult case which was handled, I would say, flawlessly by Simon, Fritz and appointed counsel representing us. In addition they also won with costs awarded against our opposition launching urgent litigation against us.With the war of ideas, which is one of the most important inventions ever made (an Ancient Greek invention) we are provided with the possibility of fighting with words and ideas to overthrow mistaken ones, with this very process forming the very basis of our civilization, especially all of its legal and parliamentary institutions - a necessity is adequate defense and representation who has the reasoning power, knowledge and capabilities to pursue the great quest of obtaining favorable outcomes in legal matters which one becomes involved in. Simon and Fritz at SD Law will handle your situation with care and responsibility, with a keen awareness of how to avoid hidden or unsuspected danger or difficulty. Along with appointed counsel they show compassion, dignity and respectfulness. With these qualities they are formidable in their pursuits. At every step of the way the sentiment of being in safe hands will be accompanied by their skill sets. They dedicate themselves in communication and if your situation has urgency, as ours had, they will be readily available to resolve it. Their time is genuinely valued for their fees.read more

They have communicated with me at each and every step of the process and when one is usually met with an invoice, there is usually an accompanying wince.

SD Law Cape Town, in the form of Simon Dippenaar and Christopher Kennedy, can be depended on to advise and protect any... person going through the experience that we are currently going through, with professionalism and integrity. The Covid 19 Lockdown has placed many small businesses and individuals in jeopardy, as the economy collapses under the pressure. As an individual and small business owner working from home and renting both home and office, I have been put under extreme pressure during this period, as my ability to earn has been severely curtailed, resulting in a complete lack of any.income during the months March till June. Simon and Christopher's calm and unflappable demeanour when we have been faced by an aggressive landlord intent on eviction regardless of our circumstances, has shown compassion and understanding, while supporting us with their professional knowledge of property Law.
