Reviews From Our Clients

My divorce situation has been very painful and a difficult experience in my life and it has been very important to me to have the best attorney representing me. Martin Vermaak was without a doubt the best choice!! His professionalism and expertise were outstanding! He provided me with answers to all my questions, was consistently accessible and available to me when I needed advice and he had a passion for my kids’ well-being. During the entire process, his office staff and his assistant, Patricia Godwin, were welcoming and responsive to my calls and questions in a positive and supportive way. I really felt that my

Mr. Nkosinathi Solomon Designation

I interviewed many other lawyers in regard to my matter - seeking High Court permission to relocate with my daughters to take a job opportunity overseas. In addition I had ongoing side matters of failure to pay maintenance and breech of domestic violence order. I decided to proceed with representation by Martin Vermaak. The other matters are still on going but I am very happy to be writing this review from Holland - working at my new company and, with my daughters settling into school and life here. In addition Martin managed to get this done in just over 3 months - which other lawyers told me was impossible - but I could not let this job opportunity be missed and Martin agreed. The extra bonus being that costs were also awarded to us - on attorney client scale!! I will be eternally grateful to Martin and, his candidate attorney Martin, who has all the qualities to be an exceptional family law attorney! Thank you from the land of tulips, windmills, bicycles and new beginnings!

To whom it may concern. Recently I had gone through a divorce which I am sure you know is very emotional and nerve wrecking. I want to say thank you to the team Philip Mostert and Michelle for their professional and diligent assistance. Philip especially have gone through great lengths to assist, and to put my mind to ease. This email serves to request that you please give the credit where it is deserved. Keep up the good work team. Many thanks.

Mr. Marsh Designation

Martin Vermaak Attorneys are well versed in family law. They are very professional and offered me expert legal advice at the time I was going through a lengthy divorce process. They made sure that the matter was resolved amicably, including facilitating an out-of-court settlement agreement with was accepted by both parties. I would recommend Martin Vermaak Attorneys to anyone seeking Divorce Attorneys any day.

Tebogo Madisha Designation

We received excellent service from Martin and his team. After years of no results from another lawyer we switched over to Martin, unfortunately the firm is a bit far from where we live, but Martin and his team always took that into consideration and didn’t have us come through unnecessarily. With Martin our case was resolved quickly and efficiently. They went out of their way to accommodate us, put a lot of effort into our case and even drove through to our area for a meeting. A friendly and knowledgeable team that we highly recommend.

Anandie Viljoen Designation

Martin has helped me so much through a very difficult divorce. It is never easy going through a process such as this but Martin has guided me through the most trying time of my life and I now consider him a friend. I would not trust my children with anyone other than Martin!
