Legal Activism and Reform
Simon Dippenaar & Associates are passionate about the law and upholding the Constitution. We regularly participate in public discussions on social and political issues, particularly in the context of Constitutional Law.
South Africa is a forward-thinking country that embraces diversity, with legislative processes that enable, for example, same-sex unions to be recognised partnerships under law. This pioneering principle underscores Simon Dippenaar & Associates’ unprejudiced, non-exclusive ethic. We support legal reform aimed at enhancing justice and efficiency, and make complex legal matters understandable in plain English.
Rates & Pro Bono Services
Cape Town law firm SD Law increases access to justice by making our legal expertise available to deserving cases. Our commitment to providing meaningful pro bono services in the communities where we operate is deeply rewarding and in line with Simon’s maxim:
"Recognition, respect and ethical responsibility are at the core of my practice."
Fees depend on case complexity. An hourly rate may be appropriate, or we may commend a fixed fee upfront that covers everything from A-Z. This ‘consultancy’ fee allows you to contact us as often as is necessary, within reason, without the fear of being charged for every single attendance or discussion.
