Stefanie and her team are simply a cut above the rest when it comes to professionalism and their demonstrated commitment to client care! Thank you Stefanie, and may you continue to grow and prosper in your field!

Mette Kirsten

I don’t think you find a more professional, passionate and empathetic team. My previous attorney said the only way forward is High Court at R100k, luckily I became a part of De Saude Attorneys. Within 24 hours they got my case reopened and 1 week later got my case dismissed in court! Thank you very much for your amazing support and service!

Louise Batty

It is with great JOY and celebration that I read the judgement against Dept of Home Affairs for their disgraceful behaviour and incompetence. Thank you for persevering to make life possible for foreigners in this country. Thank you, it would have been so easy to just give up I am sure. That is flipping brilliant. CONGRATULATIONS, I want to have a drink with you but it’s a bit difficult from Tzaneen.

Stefanie held my hand over the course of six years, from when I first applied for permanent residency to when I finally obtained citizenship. I could not have have made it that far had it not been for her deep knowledge of the law and understanding of the human emotions behind immigration.

Contacting you was the best decision we ever made. You gave our case special attention […], you fought it with passion. I can proudly refer your firm and services […] because first of all and above all you care!

Brian Makundi

Thank you (& the DSA team) immensely for playing a critical part in instigating the best new year gift I could ever have wished for – SA Permanent Residency! Thanks to you and your team for the professionalism, courtesy and efficiency with which my application was handled.

Without the help from De Saude Attorneys, I don’t think I would be legally able to stay with my wife in South Africa. They are a great group that has your best interest as the top priority.
