In my entire career I have never seen such speed and professionalism when receiving services. The efficiency of Lynette of the conveyancing department and the system that you are using at DBM is beyond comprehension, unbelievable! I was updated by Lynette and the system all the way. Never, even once, where I had to call your office to find out about the status of my stand. I reside and work in Pretoria, I felt this process was going to take long, but Lynette made it look so easy, she's, professional, solution driven and committed (I think I need her in my office in Pretoria she's got excellent work ethics). This whole deal was made without me coming down to your office in Newcastle, can you believe it!!! for some reasons I ended up trusting the whole process because Lynette knows her story and she very eloquent when explaining I ended up taking the risk and it worked. It is believable that DBM Attorneys are so technologically advanced in its business dealings... within 4 weeks my stand is registered under my name wow!!! that 360 degrees service turn deserves a big THANK YOU to Lezea, Alisa and Lynette.

Monique Roux , Room Division Manager
Vulintaba Country Hotel & Spa

I would like to express my gratitude to the Firm for the opportunity that was afforded to me by inviting me to attend the vacation work programme. The Firm’s culture was very welcoming and conducive for learning and experiencing what the actual practice of law is all about. It was obvious that there was a lot of skills transferred to young lawyers. Furthermore, the people are comfortable and relaxed to be around. I learned a great deal with regards to the proper drafting of court documents insofar as the practical application of legal theory is concerned. I also learnt about the value of good administrative skills within an office workplace environment, as it is a vital survival tool for an effective/efficient attorney and lastly, I also practically observed how civil court procedures was practiced with reference to the legal theory from our textbooks.

Mawande Xaba, Vacation Work Programme Student

I have had an effortless process dealing with Rita Nkosi and Elize Maritz and I must compliment your Attorneys Firm for absolute professional service in the way my Transfer and Bond Registration was handled. I will recommend your firm to anyone I know that needs professional service and advice. Well done and please compliment your ladies they are excellent.
