At Schoeman and Associates Attorneys we value our clients and strive to set the precedent for service in our service provisions.
Our partners and staff pride themselves in the level of knowledge and expertise they possess in their chosen law discipline. Advice provided to clients is done so with a comprehensive understanding of the applicable laws and governance structures.
Our attorneys services range from commercial or corporate law which also encompasses banking, insurance and labour to family law which includes matters involving children, maintenance, and matrimonial law. Our understanding of the National Credit Act and the Consumer Protection Act allows us to offer solid advice related to this relatively new legislation.
