In facing the digital age as well as the Covid Pandemic, Van Ellewee Attorneys made it their mission to make Van Ellewee Attorneys completely digital. Clients can get into contact with us at the click of a button, without ever meeting face to face. This enables us to still reach out, connect with and accommodate the needs of individuals.
It does not mean that clients, should the need arise, cannot meet in person. That is still available.
With more and more people working from home, law firms had to shift focus to reach people on their couches and at their home offices. Zoom and Microsoft Teams made video consultations possible throughout the whole of South Africa. Even Gauteng Courts stepped up and created an electronic case system called Caselines, which enables certain cases to be heard digitally.

Being a Notary
A Notary is held in high esteem and held to a higher standard of care than a “run-of-the-mill” attorney, for they have a higher standard of care placed upon them and must adhere to a higher ethical standard. A Notary is an admitted and practising attorney that has passed an additional practical examination in respect of the practice, functions and duties of a Notary.
A Notary usually witnesses signatures, draws and attests contracts and authenticates the validity of certain documents for instance a marital contract must be signed in the presence of a notary, whereto a notary will attest (sign) the contract along with the parties.
