How to find a divorce lawyer in Cape Town, South Africa

Legal advice in South Africa

Legal advice is the provision of an opinion regarding the optimum way to go about resolving an issue involving the legal system, often in exchange for a monetary payment. Legal advice is often provided by a lawyer. It involves the application of legal principles to a set of factual information. Legal advice given without payment is referred to as "pro bono work" (or more "pro bono publico").
