About Us

Who are we?

Lautenbach, Lessing and van Biljon is a modern day legal services company and offers a wide variety of legal as well as accounting, payroll, HR and other business related services and products. We pride ourselves in providing specialized solutions to our clients and we do this through our own, in house expertise as well as through our associations with other professionals, specializing in their respective fields.

We are proud to say that we do have a bundle of experience within our ranks and with attorneys and legal experts with more than 50 years experience, you can be assured that you are in good, tried and trusted hands! We also have individuals within our ranks with extensive experience working in the Sheriff’s office, now as you know, the Sheriff of the court is the entity processing legal documentation on behalf of the court, they are the ones serving and executing the actual legal documentation and processes. We feel that this is very beneficial to our clients, and gives us an edge over a lot of legal firms out there, simply because we won’t just bamboozle you with fancy terms and only describe theoretically what should happen in your legal action. Believe us the system is not perfect, and we know from experience how the practical side of a legal action works and unfortunately, it is not always as your attorney described! We will give you the whole picture and let you decide the way forward. We don’t believe in milking our clients for their hard earned money, when we know they’ll be fighting a losing battle!

We also believe that you don’t have to break the bank to get a professional legal service, and unfortunately this is almost always the case. That is why we pride ourselves on being the only legal practice that provides DIY legal documentation solutions to our clients. By doing this, and making it available at a much reduced cost to our clients, we are saving you, the client, thousands in legal fees, by drawing up your legal documentation for you, ( without the cost of a consultation ), and providing you with step by step instructions to follow. You will be amazed to see how much you can save by simply doing some of the steps yourself, but still doing it in a legal and professional way! Our service includes, Letter of demands, Summonses and even a cost effective DIY divorce. Check out our DIY legal Documentation solutions section for more information.

At LvB Legal we are dedicated to high ethical and professional standards, striving to serve excellence and professional competence, and believe that all clients must enjoy quality and cost effective service. Our modern outlook assures modern solutions for today’s problems and needs without compromising on traditional values. Make us your number one legal partner!

We are based in Vereeniging, Gauteng but through our online presence, and our associations with businesses across our beautiful country, our services are available to all South Africans.
