James' Story
“For 3 months my tenant refused to pay rent, until Legal&Tax got hold of him.”

“I rented out my flatlet to earn some extra money, but I ended up with problems. Three months went by and my tenant had still not paid his rent. Eventually I called Legal&Tax and after one letter of demand, R12 000 was in my account.”

Patricia's Story
“My boss victimised and demoted me for simply raising a concern. They I didn’t know I was Legal&Tax Prestige member.”

“I noticed defective equipment at my company, which was dangerous and could easily result in someone losing their life, so I reported it to management. Instead of addressing the actual problem, my boss used this as an opportunity to make my life miserable. He victimised me and then demoted me, in addition to that, I was hit with several DC hearings for work. I was really worried about my future and felt this was unfair. So I called Legal&Tax. The matter was immediately identified as unfair labour practice. A claim was processed, and then the long CCMA battle began. After a few months in and out of court, the Legal&Tax lawyers helped me win my case. I was reinstated my original position, awarded R293 246 compensation and I received an annual salary increase of R513 715. Thank you Legal&Tax!”

Colin's Story
"When my wife’s mother passed away last year, we discovered that my in-laws didn’t have a funeral policy to cover the costs."

"When my wife’s mother passed away last year, we discovered that my in-laws didn’t have a funeral policy to cover the costs. Luckily, the helpful consultant at Legal&Tax had advised me to add my in-laws to my Legal&Tax Prestige funeral policy a year earlier. That way, I was able to provide R10 000 towards a respectable funeral for my late mother-in-law."

Lindiwe's Story
“I hadn’t been feeling well for a while. Suddenly I was struggling to walk. That’s when I pushed my Trauma Assist panic button for help.”

"After pressing the panic button, I received a call back from the call centre within 2 minutes. An ambulance was then dispatched and the responders called me every 5 minutes to check how I was doing. The ambulance arrived within minutes and took me to the closest hospital where they waited with me until a doctor came.”

Victor's Story
"My wife and I both take taxis to work every day. So, when it came to choosing a funeral policy, I knew I had to get one that included extra cover in the case of an accident."

"My wife and I both take taxis to work every day. So, when it came to choosing a funeral policy, I knew I had to get one that included extra cover in the case of an accident. With the Legal&Tax Funeral Gold Policy, I only have to pay an additional R11 per month in order to get an extra R10 000 to be used in the unfortunate case of either of our deaths as a result of a taxi accident."

Eric's Story
“I did some construction work at a school, when it was done they simply refused to pay me. That’s when I called my Legal&Tax lawyer.”

“A school called me up and asked if I could do some general building work. I met with the school to check job scope and agreed to take the job. After a few days I finished the job, they seemed happy with my work, I invoiced them and left. More than a month went by and I had not received a cent from them, I called the school numerous times and was promised payment, which I never got. I eventually lost my patience and called Legal&Tax, a lawyer immediately sent the school a letter of demand and within 48hrs I received notification of my payment. Legal&Tax, you guys don’t mess around!”

Richard's Story
“Other attorneys were delaying my RAF payout but Legal&Tax sorted this out in minutes.”

“I was involved in a motor vehicle accident and the Road Accident Fund agreed to pay my claim, however the attorneys I was using were purposefully delaying my payout, every time I called them, they always had a different story as to why they haven’t paid out. I was really frustrated and decided to call Legal&Tax, one of their lawyers intervened and threatened to report them to the law society – within 48hrs I received my full payout of R106 000. Go Legal&Tax!”

Craig's Story
"After I was retrenched last year, I was unable to pay my bills, like my DSTV account and my credit cards. I then started receiving threatening calls from debt collectors. That's when I turned to Legal&Tax for help."

"After I was retrenched last year, I was unable to pay my bills, like my DSTV account and my credit cards. I then started receiving threatening calls from debt collectors. That's when I turned to Legal&Tax for help. The supportive debt counsellor at Legal&Tax explained that, by selling my wife’s car, I could save the money needed to pay back my debts. Thankfully, I now have a new job and hopefully, once I have saved enough money, I will be able to buy a car soon."
