It is Nakkie’s passion to assist injured people of all walks of life in obtaining positive outcomes and compensation every day.
Nakkie is a personal injury and workers compensation lawyer with a extensive experience in personal injury litigation in Australia and South Africa. Injuries of any kind can be very disruptive a person’s life and it requires compassion, skill and experience to assist injured people to achieving a positive outcome. Nakkie appreciates how difficult it can be to recover from an injury and getting things back on track and finds great meaning in helping injured people get the medical treatment and compensation they deserve.
Nakkie enjoys meeting new people. She listens with empathy, pays fine attention to detail and is a skilled negotiator.
Nakkie enjoys running, camping and fishing. She has camped in remote areas of Africa where such experiences have taught her the value of endurance and understanding that with proper preparation and careful planning even the most daunting goal can be achieved. These are lessons she applies to her legal work, providing a sense of confidence and encouragement to her clients when litigation feels like it is never-ending.
When dealing with clients Nakkie takes an honest, practical approach. She establishes a clear mandate at the commencement of each matter to ensure the best possible outcome for every client.
