The core business taken over by Lombard Attorneys in April of 2003 was a debt collecting firm, which started in George in 1987.
We attend to a large number of debt collection matters for a variety of clients including individuals, small & big businesses, schools and more.
Collecting debt is probably one of the most important parts of running a successful business. Few businesses can survive when their cash flow is strapped due to bad debt. We believe that a client becomes a debtor on day 31 and we encourage clients to exercise strict control over debtors to ensure positive cash-flow. We believe that educating both clients and debtors to pay accounts on time will benefit business and in the long run ensure continued financial growth.
We can assist you with collecting outstanding debt. Our collections department is very efficient and we make it our business to ensure that you are paid what is due to you.
REGISTRATION COMPANIES AND TRUSTS
We can also assist you in creating a Trust or registering a new Company. Contact us for assistance in this regard.

“We are able to assist you with divorce and family law matters, whether it is contested or not.
Where the parties are in agreement over the terms or it is possible to negotiate a settlement, we can assist you with the settlement negotiations and the drafting of a settlement agreement in order to reflect the wishes of the parties in a legally sound agreement which will be made an order of the court.
If you cannot reach an agreement but the other party does not oppose the divorce, we also charge a fixed fee for the finalization of the divorce.
In order to ensure that your divorce is handled as in a fast and professional manner, contact our offices and consult with one of our experienced family law attorneys to assist you and your spouse.”
WILLS AND ESTATE PLANNING
It is important for every person to have a well worded will setting out exactly his/her wishes concerning the division of his/her estate and assets. Since a will is a legal document, we are convinced that an attorney as a legal expert is the best equipped to draw up a will.
We have extensive experience in estate planning, and administration of deceased estates and we can assist you with drafting or reviewing your will.
Most individuals only require a simple will without the need for complex detail or it incorporates a trust to cater to the specific commercial or other needs of the individual and his/her family. We do not charge any fee to draft a simple will where one of our attorneys are appointed executor.
We can assist you with the drafting of commercial agreements to record the transactions and dynamics thereof as well as any litigation which may follow should any dispute arise therefrom. These disputes normally take the form of a breach of contract in one or other form for example restraint of trade-, non-compete-, trademark-, copyright- and patent infringements.
