Our clients include everyone from students to professionals.

Diversion/rehabilitation

Image of a gavelOur approach is practical, empathetic and non-judgmental. We’re committed to finding the best possible outcome for you. As far as possible, we do this by diverting worthy cases away from the criminal justice system and towards restorative justice processes and rehabilitation.

Our wealth of experience has taught us that this is usually in the best interests of everyone involved, especially when it’s a first-time offence. If successful, this means you won’t have a criminal record.

Strong relationships with officials

We are deeply familiar with local court proceedings, and have strong relationships with senior prosecutors and social workers.

Our proven track record is evident in our rating as one of the top law firms in South Africa and in our host of positive reviews and testimonials.

What you can expect from us

  • Immediate and after-hours legal help – 24/7.
  • Emotionally intelligent and compassionate approach – we care about all our clients.
  • Transparent, affordable all-inclusive flat fees – fair payment terms.

How we help you

If you’ve been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or possession of drugs, we will help you by:

  • Arranging your bail and negotiating the amount with the authorities, including after hours.
  • Consulting with you and providing relevant legal advice.
  • Representing you at your court appearance/s.
  • Providing criminal mediation support.
  • Making written representations for diversion.
  • Giving you our legal opinion on the strength of your evidence and the probability of a successful defence.
  • Litigating for you (opening a lawsuit) in the event of wrongful arrest and//or wrongful detention.

What to expect if you are arrested as a first-time offender

  1. You or your next of kin makes a phone call to your criminal defence attorney
  2. Your attorney explains the procedure to you
  3. Your attorney attends at police station or court to bail you out
  4. Your attorney appears with you at court for your first appearance
  5. Normally, the matter is postponed for further investigation
  6. Your attorney appears with you at court for the outcome of the investigation
  7. Your attorney assesses the evidence and consults with you, giving sound legal advice
  8. Your attorney makes written and verbal representations to the senior prosecutor to divert your case
  9. If successful, your case is diverted and charges are withdrawn, in exchange for community service with no criminal record
  10. If unsuccessful, you attorney will advise on further defences, and prepare for a trial.

She even sent the relevant laws to me via e-mail. Through her compassion and efficient service, I am more at ease and confident that I can now manage the landlord and his conduct. I would recommend SD Law to anyone that requires to be heard and needs assistance with unbearable, illegal landlord situations.

I'm thrilled to share our fantastic experience with SD Law! Nia Yu provided us with invaluable guidance and support throughout the process of setting up our Anti-Nuptial Contract (ANC). She patiently explained the different regimes, ensuring we made informed decisions.Nia's availability and assistance were exceptional, making the entire process stress-free. The services offered by SD Law are not only affordable but also efficient. Our online signing with Tinus, the notary, was quick and seamless. We couldn't be happier with the service we received and highly recommend SD Law to anyone in need of legal assistance!

This is my second time reaching out to a lawyer, the first was for a custody matter in the High Court and it was Diane Smart. I won't drag her but I will say that I eventually ended up representing myself. Therefore I have a point of reference for comparison.I can confidently and sincerely say that dealing with Simon Dippenaar and Associates Attorneys was a breeze. A pleasure. From my first Google search, they make their values, principles and services clear and easy to understand for everyone.After first contact, I had my consultation less than a week later.Rayaan was professional, patient and compassionate.Our work is not concluded yet but so far I am happy with Mehra whom I liaised with initially, Rayaan and the firm in general.What stood out for me on their website is that they are passionate about helping victims of narcissistic abuse. For this reason I didn't mind paying a bit more for consultation than what I was quoted by 2 other firms. And I don't regret it.Thank you Mehra for putting up with my impatient ranting and thank you Rayaan for allowing me speak without interrupting me.I feel confident that we will have a favourable outcome in the end.

Dealing with a tenant who doesn't pay rent is every landlord's nightmare. Unfortunately, I recently found myself in that situation. However, the staff at SD Law provided me with the legal counsel I needed to navigate the complex process of obtaining an eviction order. My primary point of contact was Nia Yu, who was professional, responsive, and empathetic throughout the entire ordeal. Thanks to Nia's guidance and expertise, I was able to successfully obtain the eviction order and regain control of my property. I highly recommend SD Law to any landlord in a similar situation seeking relief against delinquent, non-paying tenants.

I want to thank Mehra for all her time and patience while working on my case.Divorce is a stressful life event, and almost always, it is challenging working with clients involved, especially in the beginning when the trauma still affects decision-making and keeps one from being level-headed.Mehra was patient and advised me well throughout the process.I recommend going to therapy immediately, even before reaching out to a lawyer. Lawyers are not therapists, though they unavoidably face much of the drama.It will make lawyers' jobs so much easier if you see a therapist prior.Mehra handled all the information well and wrote all the legal documents well, but you should always double-check documents yourself.We're all human.My case was particularly complex, a marriage registered in another country, and Mehra ensured to do thorough research to cover all bases. I could not have been in better hands.Communication has been professional and quick on a level on par with my highest expectations.I would use Mehra and SD Law again without a second thought.Thank you very much!

A sincere thanks and appreciation to Cronje Oosthuizen and his team who helped us navigate the lengthy eviction process. From our first engagement we were supported, guided and consistently updated throughout our ordeal making us feel as if we were their only client. A heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who had a hand in helping us with the eviction. We could not have done this on our own and recommend the practice to anyone who finds themselves in the same/similar unfortunate situation. Thank you so very much!

HelloMy name is BukiweI had a problem with a tenant whose contract was terminated because of non payment but still refused to move out of my house and making all kind of excuses so as not to move out. Me and my agent tried everything we could but without success. We finally approached the attorneys at Simon Dippenaar and they were more than willing to help. I submitted all the required documents and they managed to help me. The process would have been much quicker but we had to wait for the court to grant us the court date. The attorneys at SD law are the best at what they are doing. I highly recommend them to anyone who is going through the same problem.Thank you so much SD Law, if it was not for you, that tenant who seemed like a psychopath would still be there.Thank you so so much, you saved my life

I had the privilege of working with a lawyer named Rayaan Allom during a highly sensitive legal matter, and I cannot emphasize enough how grateful I am for his exceptional support and guidance throughout the process.

He took the time to thoroughly understand the details of my situation, asking pertinent questions, and actively listening to my concerns.

He ensured that I was kept well-informed at each stage of the legal proceedings, promptly responding to my phone calls, emails, and any other queries I had. His ability to articulate complex legal concepts in a way that I could easily comprehend was truly remarkable and provided me with peace of mind and confidence throughout the process.Throughout our collaboration, Mr. Allom demonstrated unwavering attention to detail.

His commitment to thoroughness, coupled with his extensive legal knowledge, helped uncover vital information that ultimately strengthened my case.Mr. Allom displayed exceptional strategic thinking skills, developing a well-thought-out plan that maximized my chances of success. His expertise in navigating the legal landscape was evident when he advocated for my interests both inside and outside the courtroom. His persuasive arguments, backed by a comprehensive understanding of the law, greatly contributed to achieving a favorable outcome in my case.Dealing with legal matters is often emotionally challenging, but throughout the process, Mr. Allom displayed unwavering empathy and provided invaluable support.

I recently hired SImon Dippenaar and Associates to handle an eviction case involving a tenant who had neglected rent payments for a number of months. I was referred to Cronje Oosthuizen within the company and am pleased to say that he successfully resolved the matter through pre-court actions with the tenant moving out. I appreciated the quick and attentive responses from Cronje with clear actions taken, good communication and regular follow up. I am pleased to recommend their services.

It was a pleasure dealing with SD Law, especially with Cronje and Rayaan. This firm has completely revolutionized the whole process of legal representation: no hidden costs, no ridiculous retainer fee charged upfront before my case was even looked at, total transparency and only straightforward, realistic answers. I paid for services rendered based on my individual situation and case. And I feel like I got everything they promised and MORE.The friendly, personal touch that Cronje adds (with call-backs and follow-ups) makes a world of difference. This law firm really delivers on its statement of "highly personalised legal attention with commitment and discretion" and I wholeheartedly recommend them without any reservation.

Divorce proceedings can be daunting and extremely overwhelming especially when it’s uncharted territory - which was the case for me.Not knowing where or how to proceed, a random search led me to SD Law. In hindsight I view it as divine intervention.From the initial engagement to the final leg of the journey, I was met with professionalism, efficiency, transparency and most importantly the highest level of sensitivity and integrity. Though law is perceived as “black and white” this family law team did not only display a profound understanding of the law but also a deep appreciation and respect for the human element of the legal matter.I would like to convey my deepest thanks to Mehra Amiri (Attorney at Law) for her exceptional approach and support throughout the process. These words most inadequately describes the ethics displayed. Nonetheless THANK YOU!To the extended team, Nia Yu, thank you for your welcoming and warm presence.Reputation is critical in my book therefore recommending SD Law is an emphatic yes!

Cronje delivered fantastic service throughout a very daunting eviction process. Very professional. He was always very patient during explanations for a complex legal process. Regular feedback was provided with as much detail as possible. We were granted our eviction order at the High Court today, after a skillful and successful negotiation between him and his team, and the illegal occupiers. Well done Cronje! It was a pleasure working with you!

Cronje took his time guiding me through my first encounter with a forced eviction. He was incredibly attentive through the process and was very quick to communicate and check back with me whenever there were any actions in my camp. At no point did I feel I wasn't in good hands. Would definitely use his services again!10 out of 10 would recommend.

This is the first time in over two decades of my existence to be involved with the law.I was unsure of the process, and what to expect and do. Luckily for me, I came across SD Law Attorneys Firm. After speaking to Mehra I felt at ease.The team is professional, efficient, consistent, and clear on all aspects of the case. They gave me a clear and broad picture of the process.I’m in particular thankful to Mr. Rayaan. An experienced Lawyer but human at the core. Full of compassion and understanding.Not only he represented me with the highest professionalism, but he also saved my marriage by providing my wife and me with advice that helped us realize no one is wrong or right. But working out differences and prioritizing communication and understanding is the way forward.I highly recommend the Firm to anyone looking for the best outcome for their case.Stop looking for a Law firm and contact them.

Excellent and professional service. SD Law managed the legal eviction of a tenant excellently and swiftly. Their staff members were responsive, arranging meetings very quickly after contracted, and responding always within less than a few hours to email or telephone queries. They were reassuring and professional, and moved the case along speedily, saving me a large amount of money by preventing a protected eviction process. Worth every cent.

I contacted SD Law for assistance with the eviction of my tenant who was in arrears with his rent. Cronje Oosthuizen assisted me in a very professional and friendly way. I felt very confident throughout the process as he gave me regular feedback and advice regarding the process. I am very happy that I contacted SD Law for guidance with the successful eviction and can recommend them to anyone who are in the same situation and desperate for help.

I contacted SD Law for help getting an international divorce. I'm in Australia and my now ex-wife is in South Africa. I was very anxious about how this would work but Mehra (from SD Law) made it such a simple process! I always felt reassured and confident about what was happening and of a positive outcome. There was a small error made by the courts and Mehra handled everything really well and now I'm divorced. I couldn't be happier with the service I received and believe I was charged an appropriate amount. I completely recommend SD Law.

Fantastic service and incredibly helpful. I needed an antenuptial contract and they helped by explaining all the different types (in not overly complicated legal terms) and helped me choose the one that was right for my partner and I. Very reasonable price, everything was quickly wrapped up, and they even liaised with the notary involved to give me numbers for marriage officiants so we could avoid a Home Affairs wedding.

I truly cannot say enough positive things about my experience with Ms. Nia Yu and the rest of the SD Law team. Out of all of the law firms in Cape Town that I reached out to, they were the only ones willing to assist me with recovering a promised refund from a local hotel. Thankfully, this matter is now resolved and I have received my refund.This situation was stressful and I was unsure what next steps to take as I live in the U.S. I work full-time in medicine, so I really appreciate the SD Law team handling everything for me--this alleviated a lot of stress. The team responded to my initial inquiry within 24 hours and all communication thereafter was prompt and thorough. The level of professionalism, empathy, kindness, and support is unmatched and something that other law firms are sorely lacking. The rates that I paid were quite reasonable and the team was transparent from the beginning about the costs.I cannot recommend SD Law enough. My only wish is that they had a firm here in the States!

I cannot recommend SDLaw highly enough. Through a very high onflict divorce and messy legal actions, the team have supported me in so many ways. Not only legally, but also emotionally and in emergency situations. Their focus on ethics and civility cannot be emphasized enough. They have restored my confidence in justice being done and being seen to be done. The truth will always win in the end, even if the road is rocky and it takes long to get there.I am lucky to be walking my road with Simon and his team. Thank you guys.

I used SD Law's services to facilitate an amicable uncontested divorce that was complicated by the fact that I live abroad and my (now ex) wife lives in Cape Town. I guess I was slightly apprehensive initially because the full fee was requested up front, but having checked out other reviews I decided to go for it. Fortunately that turned out to be the right decision! The service I got from the firm (and particularly from Mehra Amri, the Candidate Attorney with whom I interacted directly) was excellent. The process took a while, but that was simply down to the delays in getting a court date and such. I don't think there's anything the firm could have done to make it go faster. Throughout the process communication was good, and I felt well looked after. It wasn't cheap exactly, but I do think the fee was entirely reasonable. And, as they say, you get what you pay for!In short, I would recommend them highly.

Everything was well explained to me.Personally I would like to thank Nia Yu for being so friendly and helpful. Always getting back to me within 24 hours with an answer and advice.I would use SD Law again.

This is in my opinion is probably the best law firm in South Africa. Jealous 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!!

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.

I first came across Simon Dippenaar & Associates on the web looking for advice on Landlords Lien (Hypothec) as I have major issues with 40 tenants in my office block in Zimbabwe. I found the post very useful and was taken with Simon's offer to email him which I did after working hours. I was amazed that he replied first thing in the morning as did one of his partners. So they must have both read my lengthy email and analyzed it as Simon offered to set up a telephone consultation and one of his partners gave more advice which was very useful and gave me a way forward. I am also very impressed with their almost by return emails back to me. Thanks SD Law.

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.

Thank you for your assistance. Unfortunately when we didn't receive a call back to arrange for an hours appointment, we had to find another attorney as our case is urgent. They have already sent my landlord an email and are ready to go to the court tomorrow to get a spoliation should the landlord continue with his threats. We can sleep peacefully tonight now. But again thanks for the advise earlier. I wish you all the very best

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.

I had the best nights sleep I've had in a long time after a consultation with Chris (and Mehra). The confidence and reassurance I have been given that my situation can be resolved has allowed me to finally relax, as though for the first time. I feel that I was not only heard, but understood, and that my best interests and my rights were explained and considered. Honestly, I ignored all my friends at the time, but hearing a lawyer say it made more sense. I heard what I needed to hear and I'm grateful.

What do we all want when employing the services of a professional? Service, knowledge, and most importantly communication. Throughout the entire process of dealing with Simon and everyone at SD Law I have been pleasantly surprised by every aspect of their offering.Simons' knowledge of the law is second to none and the professionalism of all at his practice is unrivalled. 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. I can say in all honesty that when I received the invoice for a service par excellence I was not only happy to pay it but secretly probably would have paid more.Now it isn't often you will hear me say that!

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 thought I could not get divorced as I was married in the USA. It was a huge relief to discover that the power actually lay 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.

Should the situation arise, I would not hesitate to seek representation from Simon again.
