Welcome to Morkel & De Villiers Attorneys at Law

Our firm has been in existence in the Helderberg basin since 1918 and is one of the oldest and biggest firms of Attorneys in the Helderberg basin and in the Western Cape/Boland area, outside obviously of Cape Town, and is proud of its association over the years with the Community.

The firm, which started off as a one-man practice, has over the years grown to what it is at the moment i.e. an incorporated practice with four Directors, two Professionals, two Consultants and an administrative staff in excess of twenty.

Our firm does not use correspondent Attorneys, but attends personally to all its High Court and Conveyancing matters in Cape Town.

One of the Attorneys in the practice will always be in Cape Town on a daily basis and the firm is also represented in the Deeds Office by a Deeds Clerk. We also have a very large Litigation Department particularly operating in the following Magistrates Courts - Somerset West, Strand, Bellville, Kuils River, Stellenbosch, Grabouw and Caledon.

We are confident that we are able to offer a large range of legal services.


Our firm has over the years been involved in virtually every field of legal work, save possibly trademarks. In the latter field, when we are involved in such matters, we make use of correspondent Attorneys. We run a very large Conveyancing and Litigation practice and are involved in every sphere of legal work inclusive of commercial work.
