The Van Huyssteen family from Bellville celebrated a special occasion when father, Alastair Morrison had the privilege of representing his son, Christiaan-Botha for his admission as an attorney of the High Court of South Africa on Friday 5 March.

“As a father it was a very special and fulfilling moment for me to have been able to represent my son. Apart from myself he’s also the first member of our family to follow into law. It’s fantastic to work closely alongside him at our firm and these days I’m looking to him for guidance,” said Mr Van Huyssteen.

Christiaan-Botha studied law at Stellenbosch University and UNISA and completed his articles with his father’s law firm, Alastair Morrison van Huyssteen Attorneys in Bellville which he’s also joined as an attorney.
