Welcome to Michael Matthews & Associates, a leading legal firm that really cares.

There comes a time in most people’s lives, whether personally, commercially or otherwise, that the services of an attorney are either advisable or even necessary. Seeking legal advice can be a stressful exercise, especially when there is a lot at stake.
At Michael Matthews & Associates we strive to develop a relaxed relationship with our clients, and to make it clear that we have empathy with and understand our clients’ concerns.
With more than fifty years of combined experience, we are also able to offer a high quality bouquet of hands on and personalized legal services to our clients including, amongst others, property law, contracts and commercial law in all its aspects, matrimonial and family law, High Court and Magistrates Court litigation and arbitration, third-party claims, will drafting and administration of deceased estates to mention but a few.
