WESTERN CAPE

Rize Claasen

Maserumule Inc. Attorneys

 

Rize Claasen has served the most in office pro-bono hours for the Western Cape Chapter this year. She has consulted to date 47 SASLAW clients in the pro-bono office taking on a total of 6 pro-bono SASLAW matters. She took on pro-bono slots on the last minute when the rostered attorney was unable to come in and represented clients in court on demand of the Judge on duty (unprepared) whenever it was required of her to do so. Rize was a runner up for last year’s award and has definitely proven her worth for the winner of the award for 2014. Edwin Nkoana  received the award on Rize's behalf.

EASTERN CAPE

Carmen Marx

Minnaar Niehaus Attorneys

 

Carmen is our youngest attorney at the pro bono office and has spent the most hours this year in the advice office. She is always willing to stand in if another attorney can’t make it and goes the extra mile to assist clients despite her workload at Minnaar Niehaus Attorneys. We also want to thank Minnaar Niehaus who gives up a lot of his firm hours so Carmen can assist clients at pro bono. She really deserves this award.
