Out of Community of Property “Without Accrual” marriage

ALICE PALAN

In 2011, I was such a broken woman with a broken marriage and finally decided to divorce. My estranged husband abandoned me and my two children in 2006 for a mistress. I was referred by a Durban Judge, Rajesh to contact Tash. He noted to me that Tash was a petite, small woman, that did big damage in terms of fighting cases and winning them. Despite numerous calls to Tash’s office, I chickened out and dropped the calls as I could not afford exorbitant lawyer fees. I was also terrified of courts and battles but Tash made sure that her staff contacted me for a consultation and reassured me that costs will be minimum. Both herself and her staff gave me support and taught not to fear. Today, I never regretted choosing Tash as my lawyer, as Rajesh was absolutely correct that dynamite comes in small packages. The case is still proceeding, and Tash has reassured me and my children that justice will be done.

E VAN SCHULKWYK

This is the best group of attorneys you will find. They do more than there 100% for their clients. Got a lot of patience and compassion. I have got the greatest admiration for them in the criminal and civil matter. I find Tashya to be the best criminal lawyer I have come across.

RAKESH ROOPNARAIN
