Simon and Chris from SD Law have been an incredible help to me and my family through a very challenging time. They have... always been available to provided sound advice on short notice and it is evident that their experience is extensive as they knew exactly what needed to be done at any point. They have exceeded my expectations to the nth degree. They are exactly the type of firm you need to navigate you through uncertain and stressful times. Definitely the firm I will reach out to if I need help in the future.read more

I engaged with Simon and Christopher for legal advice relating to a complicated and sensitive situation. From the very... first interaction, they were both professional, understood the sensitivity of the case and were very approachable and available. The advice received was clear and effective and I was able to ensure that the issue was dealt with quickly and efficiently. I would definitely recommend SD Law for any matter. They ensure that you receive the right advice, in the best manner possible, without the stress and anxiety that such situations can cause. SD Law is also progressive and informative in their approach to helping people. I am happy with my outcome!read more

Did you know that you can action a divorce in South Africa even if you got married in another country? For two years,... whilst separated and living back in South Africa, I was under the false impression that I could not divorce my husband as we were married in the USA. I was totally at his mercy when he kept delaying the divorce proceedings on his side in the US. It was a huge relief to discover that the power actually was in my hands. I initiated proceedings on my side, in South Africa, and was legally divorced within three months! Thank you Simon Dippenaar and Associates for your help and support facilitating my International Divorce. It feels good to finally be free.read more

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. At a time where we had nowhere to turn to. Simon and Christopher have calmed us and helped us to understand that although landlords have rights, tenants have rights too. We cannot thank them enough for going the extra mile to protect us, their client and we are extremely grateful. Chris Swanson of CSS COPIERS (PTY) Ltdread more

I approached Simon a few months ago to help my housekeeper with her divorce. She'd been in an abusive marriage for over... 10 years and struggled for more than 5 years to get away from it. I knew we needed to get a lawyer involved. Simon and his office responded within a couple of hours of me sending an email, and although it took around 3 months for everything to be finalised, they made the process as seamless as could be. They were professional, kind, and incredibly sensitive to my housekeepers situation. 5 stars from us both!read more
