Events & Awards

At this year’s Annual Conference, President Nick Robb awarded the 2013 Pro Bono Awards to:

PORT ELIZABETH

Theo Potgieter

TD Potgieter Attorneys

 

The Eastern Cape  committee members agree that the pro bono award should go to the person with the most pro bono hours. The criteria was set last year, therefore Theo Potgieter is the deserved winner again for 2013.

JOHANNESBURG

Sandile Mabaso

Mabaso Attorneys

 

Sandile has taken on the most cases this year in the advice office, sends us a report after every case he has taken, and often pops in for an hour or two to help when he is in court.  He has come down to the Labour court on a number of occasions when attorneys have not arrived. He runs his own firm and his resources are limited and we feel that Sandile is a deserved winner for the Johannesburg office in 2013.

DURBAN

Alex Rocher

Edward Nathan Sonnenbergs

 

Alex has been the principal driver of the SASLAW pro bono project in Durban since its inception as a pilot project in the Durban Labour Court even before the advice office was formally set up.  He took much of the organizational responsibility upon himself, meeting with judges, the court staff, the KZN Law Society, ProBono.org and others on a regular basis, devising the initial forms and processes and generally ensuring that the project was able to get off the ground in Durban.  Since the establishment of the advice office, his commitment to and enthusiasm for the project has continued to be impressive and well beyond the call of duty.

Justine Del Monte & Associates
