About Dr Steenkamp

I am a practising conveyancer and notary public. I initially studied at the Rand Afrikaans University where I obtained a BA(law) and LLB degree. As a firm believer that practice and theory are complementary, I completed an LLM in estate law at Potchefstroom, followed by an LLD on training attorneys for the profession. This was followed by a postgraduate diploma in insolvency law at Pretoria and an LLM in commercial and company law at Unisa.

I prosecuted and worked as a legal advisor for the State before qualifying as attorney. I entered practice as a litigant in Pietermaritzburg, discovered the error of my ways and moved on into conveyancing and later as estate law specialist. I currently practice as conveyancer and notary with specific interests in commercial, estate and trust law.

I have, over forty years, served in positions from filing clerk to managing director of sizeable practices as litigant, estate specialist, property specialist and commercial practitioner.

This has positioned me as an experienced attorney capable of handling any form of property work including developments, estate law problems and a wide range of commercial and notarial work.
