About Us

Van Zyl Johnson Attorneys is a mix of the old and the new. We first opened our doors on 1 April 2015 with the ultimate goal of bringing our clients unrivalled quality representation and 100% client satisfaction. Together, we have 24 years of experience in all aspects of personal injury litigation. We’re Johan van Zyl and Cindy Johnson. 

What makes us different?

We’re more than just a law firm – we’re dedicated to bringing you the best. By understanding every aspect of your case, as well as the daily impact of your injury, we strive to put the “personal” back into personal law injury. When you need us, we make sure we’re available.

We’re pro-active

We gather information quickly and efficiently, which gives our clients a complete overview of their case and affords them the opportunity to make well-informed decisions relating to the success of their case.

Our approach seeks to limit the risk profile of our client in terms of legal costs and costs associated with the litigation process.

Very importantly, we work on a no-win, no-fee basis for cases that we’re instructed to recover damages on behalf of our clients. We also tailor make fee agreements to suit each client’s needs depending on the seriousness and complexity of the case.
