I switched to sally after having an attorney who did not take my case seriously. Sally did her research, paid attention to detail of my case and made me feel comfortable. she got me what i wanted in my child custody case in which my first attorney did not. i would highly recommend her!
Divorce is a drag and can get emotional. Sally used her energy and compassion to provide a sound legal strategy that kept all emotions checked at the door. Her straightforward advice was great and made a difficult situation tolerable. Thanks Sally!
Sally Pretorius represented me in a child custody case. For the most part she was okay, but be careful because she will try and get her other lawyers in on phone calls then charge you double (even if the other attorney does not say a word). I felt like she overcharged me and frankly, she was more interested in padding her bill than helping me. Then, when the case got difficult, she dropped me like a hot potato. She is super expensive and not worth the money. She doesn't care about her clients.... only money.
Sally and her firm, Andrae Law, helped me with custody issues related to my daughter. I already had orders in place but they needed to be changed, which is difficult to do, and Sally helped me figure out exactly what had to be done and got me through the entire, long process with a great end result for my daughter. I would highly recommend her and her firm. I did a lot of research before picking this firm because my first lawyer who wrote the original orders was terrible and left holes in the orders that exposed my daughter to dangerous situations. I'm glad I chose to do this with Sally, who inspired confidence and got it done well and fairly.
Sally Pretorius is an amazing lawyer. She helped me and my children when no one else would take me seriously.Other lawyers that i had previously spoken with told me that the resluts i wanted were impossible to acheive and that custody battles would take years. Sally treated my case as an urgent and important matter, and within months had the results i wanted for my children's safety. She is a Godsend. I honestly do not know what i would have done if I did not have her as my lawyer. I still believe thank you's are not enough for all the dedication and hard work you did for us.
In my opinion, Sally Pretorius is a very passive attorney. She was not aggressive for me and when I asked her to be more aggressive and voiced my concerns, she withdrew from my case... leaving me high and dry. I will not recommend Sally Pretorius to any one.
Ms. Pretorius handled our case with the utmost professionalism and care. She guided us every step of the way and produced an amazing outcome we never thought possible.
