Ontvang asb. hiermee my opregte dank en waardering vir die wyse waarop u my eis hanteer het in die saak teen ‘n wanbetalende huurder.

Dit sou onmoontlik vir my gewees het om self die Regskoste te betaal en daarom is ek oneindig dankbaar teenoor Legal-X vir die professionele wyse waarop u die saak hanteer het. Ek sien uit na ‘n jarelange verbintenis met u organisasie en die wete dat ek u en u organisasie aan my kant het, laat my toe om rustig te slaap.

Hiermee wil ons net ons opregte dank uitspreek aan Legalex asook prokureur Andries Stander vir die uitstekende diens wat ons van hulle ontvang het. Andries, baie dankie vir al jou hulp, moeite en professionele diens wat jy vir ons as ‘n kliënt gegee het. Dit was werklik ‘n plesier om met jou en Legalex sake te doen… Legalex se dienste word onvoorwaardelik aanbeveel want ons weet ons sal dit met vertroue kan doen. Daar is so min maatskappye vandag wat dit regkry. In die toekoms sal ons sake deur Legalex hanteer word…

We herewith testify to the excellent service received from Legalex and the attorney who then acted on our behalf…. The attorney was professional and did an excellent job in handling the case, and we are more than satisfied.  We would recommend Legalex to anyone who would need it…



“I made an urgent call to LegalX’s helpline on behalf of my father who had been arrested for withholding his driver’s license and resisting arrest. We were terribly concerned that my father would have to spend the night in jail. I explained the situation to the attorney on line at LegalX, who then made the necessary calls to arrange that my father be released with a warning and appear in court the following day as a first-time offender. My father was released a couple of hours later that evening. My family is deeply grateful to LegalX for their exceptional service and for exceeding all expectations of a legal cost insurance company. We have now renewed our memberships, having experienced the benefits of LegalX’s quality services first-hand!”
