Dries, as he is commonly known, is a director at Neumann van Rooyen inc., but through hard work and dedication hopes that he can develop further going into the future.
Dries knows that being an attorney is not a 9 to 5 job and as such he is almost always available for his clients. He is passionate about the law and aggressively litigates on behalf of his clients. Despite his aggressive litigation style, Dries prides himself on being ethical and impartial when dealing in all matters. Whether it is a normal civil matter or a complex High Court case, Dries applies the same focus and precision.
Dries was born and bred in the Goldfields and went to Wessel Maree High School in Odendaalsrus, after which he attended the North-west University in Potchefstroom and obtained his first degree in psychology and law subjects. In 2010, he started his articles at a firm in Welkom while he completed his LL.B through Unisa, and was admitted as an attorney in 2014.
Dries is also involved in the Goldfields Debating League and provides many schools in the Goldfields with sponsorships in order to provide a healthy stepping stone to become the next generation of lawyers. Dries is currently a member of the Goldfields Chamber of Business Exco Committee. In his spare time, Dries indulges in various hobbies, including woodwork and fishing, and spends a lot of time with his newly formed family.
