Having completed his Masters in Law Degree (LL.M) in 2003, advocate Abduroaf was the same year admitted as an advocate of the High Court of South Africa. In the same year, he further successfully represented his client in the Western Cape High Court, where history was made. This was the case of Petersen v Maintenance Officer Simon’s Town Maintenance Court and Others 2004 2 SA 56 (C) 38. Because of this important case, it is now possible to claim maintenance from paternal grandparents of children born out of wedlock. This was not possible for over 80 years. If it was not for his tenacity and belief in law, his client wouldn’t receive the much-needed child support.
A year later, the young advocate Abduroaf, again made legal history. This was in the case of Soller v Maintenance Magistrate, Wynberg and Others 2006 2 SA 66 (C) 2006 446. In this case, the Western Cape High Court confirmed the extensive powers of the Maintenance Court, which includes interdicting pension funds. A mother struggling to obtain maintenance has an additional option because of this case. Because of the latter two cases, family law has developed constitutionally to the benefit of many.

No doubt, this will change soon as provided for in the Legal Practice Act. However, for now, if you require his legal assistance as an Advocate, you have to make use of an attorney.
