RETAINING HUMANITY THROUGH THE LEGAL PROCESS

Kate Boonzaier

Kate Crouch Attorney relaxing

I did a BA degree majoring in English and Sociology and then a BProc degree, both through UNISA. I served my articles at Pretorius Attorneys in Pietermaritzburg before joining Tomlinson Mnguni and James as a Professional Assistant  for approximately 2 years . I worked as an ad hoc Family Advocate whilst studying. I have been involved as an attorney in Family Law since 2000.

I lecture in Matrimonial Law to clerks and students preparing for board exams and am involved in a number of projects with various schools and institutions in family law related areas.

Kate Crouch Attorneys was established on the 1st of August 2005 with the intention of creating a hands on personal and specialized  approach to Family Law.

We strive to remain abreast with current trends and changes both locally and abroad.

Kate Crouch Attorneys was  the first firm of attorneys to obtain legal representation for a child in their own capacity. This became a reported Judgement and has subsequently become fairly common practice. We now frequently represent children in litigation matters. We firmly believe that children, no matter what the facts and circumstances, should not be exposed to the possible acrimony of litigation and great endeavours are made to protect children from this toxicity.
