About Us

When Garth Dykes initially opened Dykes Attorneys in 2011, he realized that there was a gap in the market for a conveyancing firm that offered personalized service while also providing the high-quality services typically associated with larger firms. With this in mind, Dykes Attorneys quickly grew to become one of the most respected firms providing conveyancing services throughout the Gauteng area.

In the early days, Dykes Attorneys’ dedication to providing personalized services meant that they would travel to their clients’ homes or offices to sign documents, a service that was not commonly offered by other conveyancing firms. They also implemented an advanced updating system to ensure that all parties involved in the transfer process were kept informed at all times.

In 2014, Armand Nel, a well-respected attorney specializing in property matters, joined Garth Dykes, and together they formed Dykes & Nel Attorneys. Under their leadership, the firm continued to grow, providing high-quality conveyancing services throughout Gauteng.

When Barne du Plessis joined the firm in 2000, the name of the company changed from D & N Incorporated to DND Attorneys. In his three years of practice, he has become a valued member of the firm’s close-knit team. His dedication to his work and his clients is evident in everything he does, and his attention to detail and expertise in the field of conveyancing have earned him a reputation as one of the best attorneys in the business.

Today, DND Attorneys continues to operate under the same ethos, providing personalized service to clients while utilizing the latest technology and expertise to ensure that all transactions are handled efficiently and effectively. The firm is dedicated to building long-lasting relationships with its clients, providing them with the highest level of service and expertise.

In conclusion, the evolution of DND Attorneys is a story of growth and dedication to service. From its humble beginnings as Dykes Attorneys to its present-day status as a trusted and respected name in conveyancing, the firm’s commitment to providing exceptional service and expertise has never wavered. With its talented team of attorneys and its focus on personalized service, DND Attorneys is poised to continue its success for years to come.
