Founding partner, Mr Gavin Kraut has in excess of 16 years experience in South African Immigration and Refugee Law. Mr Kraut was born in South Africa and completed both his schooling and degrees in the Republic. In 1999 he completed his degree of Baccalareus Procurations (B.Proc) and thereafter a post graduate degree of Bachelor of Laws ( LLB ) and Dip. IMM. In 2002 he was granted by the High Court of South Africa rights of appearance in the High Court.


It has been a great honour to be a member of your family of longstanding clients. A strong bond has developed over more than a decade of receiving your legal counsel. While this is often explained away as brand loyalty, the opposite is equally the case and instructive, that the service (or brand) has been loyal to us. We note especially your multidisciplinary skills encompassing civil, criminal and immigration law, and from this core the growing concern with human rights and social justice. As we nurtured a family bond over the years many benefits have accrued to us such as aftercare. A family doctor must check his/her patient post-hospitalisation or surgery! Such follow-ups on your clients and empathy has had a big psychological impact fostering confidence and a sense of security.

I have had the privileged of having Mr. Gavin Kraut as an attorney. Gavin has provided legal advice and guidance during a difficult situation for me and my family. I found him to be experienced, responsive, knowledgeable and honest. While Gavin was handling my case, I felt as though my situation was in adept and trustworthy hands. That being said he is always on top of the game and never misses a deadline. I would highly recommend Gavin to anyone seeking legal representation that is fair, honest and will keep your best interest and unique needs at the forefront. Should the situation arise, I would not hesitate to seek representation from Gavin again.
