DSC Attorneys - A dedicated legal partner

When three large legal firms specialising in personal injury law and operating in Cape Town merged in 2004, De Vries Shields Chiat Incorporated. The teams of the three firms got well integrated right from the start.

The combination of experts and resources enabled the new firm, popularly known as DSC Attorneys, to work on larger and more complex assault claims with greater time efficiency.

We use an innovative approach

Today, after more than ten years in the industry, we have an excellent reputation as a reliable and dedicated legal partner with the abilities and skills to handle all kinds of personal injury claims with great success.

We combine innovative approaches with honoured traditions to deliver the most effective solutions to our clients who make a claim through us.

We stay up to date with all of the latest changes in legislature and developments in the field of law. We provide our professional legal services on "no win - no fee" basis to give each client access to justice.

We will build a strong case for you

If you or a member of your family got injured as a result of the use of unreasonable force by the police, you may be able to institute a personal injury claim. A claim can also be instituted in the case of an unlawful arrest.

In such cases, DSC Attorneys can provide full legal assistance to you. We will work with you from start to finish to compile and prosecute the assault claim.

You can get compensated for medical bills, loss of earnings and support for pain and suffering.

Professional skills

There is a set procedure for the institution of assault claims and set legal deadlines as well. That is why time is of paramount importance.

The sooner you come to us, the higher your chances of obtaining head or brain injury compensation will be.

We will use our expertise in the field and our professional skills to achieve the best possible outcome. We work on "no win, no pay" basis.
