Professional and Experienced Credit Law Attorneys

You've Come to The Right Place

At VDL Attorneys, we’re not just your run-of-the-mill law firm. We are highly specialised in consumer credit law and operate unashamedly on the consumer’s side. Our services are limited to those needed by consumers to fix debt problems. This allows us to be focused and have deep expertise without conflict of interest.

We don’t believe in cookie-cutter solutions or one-size-fits-all legal advice. Instead, we take the time to understand your unique situation and craft the right solution to meet your needs. Our team of attorneys are experts in credit law and committed to supporting you to get a great outcome. We personally appear in court to better understand the nuances of specific courts, and we work tirelessly to secure the most favorable outcomes for our clients.

20+ Years of Experience

VDL Attorneys was founded by Justin van der Linde. Justin holds an LL.B degree and has over 15 years of hands-on experience in litigation, debt review, and corporate law, with extensive experience and a deep knowledge of working with credit providers in South Africa. The team provides high-quality legal services that meet the highest industry standards while being low cost. This is due to the effective use of technology and having sufficient scale.

Defining Success

We operate on the consumer's side, with our primary goal being your financial well-being.

Our Practice Areas

Debt Review

We can streamline the process of removing an Administration Order by conducting an inquiry into your request and subsequently initiating an application at the Magistrates Court to rescind your order.

Upon the successful rescindment of your court order, we will notify all relevant credit bureaus to expunge your Administration Order listing.

Correspondent Services

We are a team of experienced attorneys based in Gauteng and the Western Cape, offering correspondent work to other attorneys in our region. We understand the importance of having a reliable and efficient correspondent attorney to represent you in court, attend to matters urgently and handle cases that require specialised knowledge.

What Our Client's Say

In 2021, VDL Attorney's took over the legal work for Debtline. There were several challenges in finding a high-quality and cost-effective solution at that time. Working closely with VDL, the speed, quality and cost have all improved by a large margin. At a point in time, additional support was needed as we transitioned between Debt Counsellors, and Justin took the unusual step of stepping in for a period to ensure continuity and quality were not compromised. We have come to expect this level of proactive partnership and responsive service from VDL Attorneys. We are excited by their new technology solution, which we believe will further improve efficiency as we grow our business.
