FAQ

General

What are the qualifications of a lawyer?

Everyone who wishes to become an attorney in South Africa must begin by completing their LLB, which can be no less than four years in length. They must attend an institution in South Africa unless they have already completed an LLB from an institution from an approved country. The designated countries approved in South Africa currently are Swaziland, Namibia, Lesotho and the former Bophuthatswana, Venda, Transkei, and Ciskei states. If you have an LLB from any other country, then you need to approach a South African law school for assessment of your law degree as credit towards a South African one.

What can a lawyer do for me?

Attorneys handle a large variety of affairs for individuals, businesses, associations and corporations. These include work in the field of business and corporate law; civil and criminal litigation; property transactions; taxation; estate planning; and business as well as personal advice. Many attorneys consider themselves to be general practitioners, however, as a result of the increasing complexity of life, the trend is towards specialisation. Therefore, there are attorneys who specialise in either commercial or criminal cases, or who focus on litigation, estate planning or tax-related matters.

What is legal advice?

Legal advice applies the law, including statute and case law and legal principles to a particular situation. It provides recommendations about what course of action would best suit the facts of the case and what the person wants to achieve.

How much will my lawyer cost?

Fees must be reasonable
In terms of Rule 28 of the Rules for the Attorneys’ Profession a practitioner is entitled to a reasonable fee for professional services rendered.

Coetzee v Taxing Master, South Gauteng High Court and Another (2010/14197) [2012] ZAGPJHC 175; 2013 (1) SA 74 (GSJ) (19 September 2012)

[10] “The payment by a client to the client’s own attorney is not aimed at a ‘full indemnity’, but rather is aimed at payment of a reasonable recompense for services rendered”.

The tariff in Rule 70 is not binding on attorney and own client scale costs, and is merely a guide for taxation.

[29] In exercising the discretion to determine a reasonable rate for time charges for services rendered the practice is to have regard to:

Fees charged by other legal practitioners,
The seniority of the attorney
The time taken over the work
The nature of the work performed
These guidelines should always be applied in determining the reasonableness of the practitioner’s fee regardless the outcome or the value of the claim and any agreement that caters for an inappropriately large fee could be subject to review and be found to be unenforceable.

How do I choose which lawyer is right for me?

What Questions Should I Ask a Lawyer Before Hiring Them?
The types of questions you ask may vary, depending on your situation, but here are a few suggestions:

What is your legal specialty?
How and how often do you bill?
Can you tell me whether I have a strong case without having to spend a lot of money?
How often will you update me on the status of my case?
What are my responsibilities as a client?

Where the treatment provided is of a non-emergency nature the Fund will compensate the reasonable necessary costs of the treatment to the injured, or the supplier, as the case may be.
