DSC Attorneys - personal injury specialists

De Vries Shield Chiat Attorneys is a Cape Town-based law firm, established in 2004.

The firm specialises in personal injury and product liability claims. DSC Attorneys boasts extensive experience in boating, rail and aviation lawsuits.

Expert medico-legal advice

Although it is young, the firm originally formed from the merger of three prior personal injury law firms: De Vries (Cape Town) Inc., Henry Shields Chiat and Mostert & Bosman.

The firm is driven by the belief that all clients have the right to access the legal services required to come to a justified solution for your boating, aviation or train accident claim. In order to achieve this goal, DSC Attorneys operates on a contingency of ‘no win, no fee’.

What this means is that the firm will cover all the expenses of litigation, bringing witnesses to court, access to specialised and experienced advocates and getting expert medico-legal advice.

You can receive maximum compensation

The attorneys at DSC are equipped with the technical, commercial and scientific knowledge as well as good connections with the requisite regulatory bodies to help ensure you receive the maximum compensation in boating, rail and aviation liability claims.

Effective legal representation

All of our attorneys are members of the Cape Law Society and the American Association for Justice and are accredited by the American Board of Independent Medical Examiners.

DSC Attorneys provide their clients with the professional, effective and efficient legal expertise they deserve when they make a personal injury claim or any transport or car accident claim.
