Greedy lawyers should stop robbing widows and widowers of their estate.

Make sure you research your lawyer before appointing him or her, because some of them are fake and will leave you penniless.

People pretend to be estate lawyers and go on to defraud widows and widowers, causing stress to the dead people’s families.

Many have been robbed of millions by heartless bogus estate lawyers who target illiterate widows and widowers.

On the other hand, widows also face strong social pressure to accept property-grabbing by in-laws.

Fake lawyers should stop ruining the image of the law fraternity in Mzansi.

Screen these lawyers before appointing them.

Contact the Law Society of SA to confirm if the attorney you’re dealing with is registered to avoid being defrauded.
