When Tineke van Rooyen contacted me about a website and told me what she does for a living, I told her I would not be able to help her.

Tineke is a lawyer. I have hardly any respect for the profession and consequently, hardly any respect for most lawyers. (I have family members and friends who are lawyers and I love them, by the way.)

But after hearing her remarkable story and the reasons she had for choosing her vocation, I was proud to add her to my list of clients.

Tineke is different. She became a lawyer to right wrongs and protect against abuse. She’s a breath of fresh air in a niche that some might describe as rank with malodour.

Tineke opened her law office in Jeffreys Bay and offers a wide range of legal services.

She’s a bright lady, Tineke. She’s a member of the Golden Key International Honour Society and she received the distinction of best LLB student over four years.

Most surprising about Tineke is her approach to legal costs; she’s out to make a living, not a killing, which means she makes it easy for her clients to access justice, which is a constitutional right.

I invite you to take a look at the TVR Law website and if you need a lawyer who will fight for you without costing you your life, I can recommend Tineke.
