Tanya van Schalkwyk

Van Schalkwyk Attorneys believe in offering the best advice possible at an early stage, in order to avoid unnecessary litigation costs. Unfortunately litigation cannot always be avoided but Van Schalkwyk Attorneys endeavour to assist their valued clients as cost effectively as possible.

Riaan has extensive experience in litigation and arbitration against the mining giants and contractors to mines and has been involved in aviation related matters. His extensive experience in Contract Law makes him an invaluable asset in both these arenas.   Riaan has a sensible and no-nonsense approach to Commercial Law, which helps his clients to understand the law and act accordingly. His advice has shown over a period of time, that good advice at an early stage can be an invaluable asset in the litigation arena.

Tanya endeavours to assist her divorce clients as cost effectively as possible, which is why she encourages the parties to agree on as many issues as possible. For this reason, the majority of the divorces she attends to are unopposed (which means that they are finalised a lot sooner than an opposed divorce which can take years to finalise). That said, Van Schalkwyk Attorneys will not hesitate to litigate on your behalf.

Due to her hands on experience as a Military Prosecutor, Tanya is an efficient and experienced Disciplinary Hearing Chairperson and Prosecutor. She has a 100% success rate as a Prosecutor in disciplinary hearings. This is solely due to the advice she gives and the procedures she recommends to the employer at the outset.

Tanya has extensive knowledge of Personal Injury (Third Party Claims as well as Medical Negligence Claims). She has shown herself to be a successful litigator in the Personal Injury arena and is highly respected amongst her colleagues. She has often successfully appeared in the High Court on behalf of her clients (whereas this function is usually left to an Advocate of the High Court).

Due to the confidential nature of the work we do, we will not divulge names, details and settlements.
