Simon’s dedicated, compassionate approach has earned him a reputation in family law, which extends to his other fields of expertise, such as eviction law, liquor licensing and criminal law. He is known for cracking cases where others have failed. Simon engages expert associates in specific areas of practice to complement and expand his service offering.
Simon has a strong commitment to social justice and the needs of the less fortunate. He was involved in one of the country’s most recognised mass eviction cases in Marikana, representing the unlawful occupiers and their constitutional right to adequate housing - entirely pro bono.
