EXPERIENCE – THAT WHICH MAKES US UNIQUE
M. P. LUTGE INCORPORATED (ATTORNEYS, NOTARIES, AND CONVEYANCERS)
We are a Durban based firm of attorneys with over thirty years experience and an extensive network of attorneys able to assist our clients in any matter, anywhere in South Africa.
Using the latest technologies, our clients are able to login and access their matters through our website 24 hours a day / 7 days a week / 365 days a year from anywhere in the country. The result is that our clients are never unaware of what progress is being made in their file.
Furthermore, the previously mentioned legal technologies ensure that all aspects of our work are streamlined. Our systems have automatic prompters built into each legal matter that ensure there is zero downtime between a matter being ready to proceed and progress being made.
Added to this, our innovative technology allows us to automatically generate certain legal documents that are common to a particular type of matter. For instance, when dealing with a Motor Vehicle Accident Recovery there are a number of legal documents that need to be generated in each matter that, apart from a few matter specific details, are exactly the same from case to case. With our legal systems, we are able to insert those matter specific details automatically. This means that we can generate an unlimited (hundreds/thousands/etc) number of documents for different files simultaneously at the click of a button. This makes our firm perfectly suited to do bulk work for large companies (such as Motor Vehicle Accident Recoveries for Insurance Companies).
Our company’s combination of experience and technology makes us a formidable legal firm that is perfectly suited to meet your legal needs.
