 How We Can Help You.

Distressed solutions

Small claims court

Contract Law and completion of statutory documents

Legal Research

1. Distressed solutions

We can offer a wide variety of assistance in distressed cases. We can especially be useful for liquidators. We can assist them with the acquiring of support forms from creditors, lodging of documents at the Masters Office, attending and voting at creditors meetings as well as follow ups at the Masters office. 

Rehabilitation work in the sense that it will include all preparation work and acquiring the relevant documents and getting it to the point where all that the attorney has to do is prepare the application.

2. Small claims court

Dealing with claims under a threshold amount of R20 000. Clients may abandon the balance of the amount if it exceeds R20 000. The idea behind the establishment of the small claims court was to create an environment that ensured expediency with regards to smaller matters.

Representation at small claims court is not permitted, thus the reason why attorneys don’t even look at matters arising in the Small Claims Court and therefore opens the market up to paralegals such as ourselves. Our clients will need to represent themselves in small claims court, however, we can assist in preparing documents for all small claims court issues and we can prepare our clients so that they are fully equipped to deal with their matter in the small claims court. 

3. Contract Law & completion of statutory documents

We offer the service of helping to complete legal documents for clients as this often seems like a daunting task. We can help with the drafting of basic contracts such as employment contracts amongst others.

4. Legal Research

Tied into all of the above is the aspect of legal research, we can offer what most attorneys do not have enough of; time. We can do research on topics for attorneys when they need to prepare cases and simply don’t have the time to do this.
