...who we are

Who we are

Milkwood Law is a collaborative initiative designed by Rhiannon Thomas, Victoria Mayer & Di Burger.

Together they have developed a fresh approach to creating contracts such as Antenuptial Contracts (ANCs) & Wills by bringing a personal touch into the traditional legal method.

Their unique process affords you an opportunity to create not only a legally valid document but also to take into account your fundamental values, which are part of the underlying narrative.

Rhiannon Thomas

Rhiannon Thomas is an Integrative Lawyer in private practice. She is also an internationally accredited Mediator.

She believes that the practice of law should involve adding heart and soul to a lawyer’s powers of intellectual reasoning. She is mindful of the impact that our behaviour and relationships have on ourselves, others and the legal profession as a whole. She likes what Nelson Mandela has to say about change “one of the most difficult things is not to change society – but to change yourself.”

She lives in Cape Town with her husband, two sons, two dogs and two cats.

Victoria Mayer

Victoria Mayer is a Clinical Psychologist and Family Mediator in private practice. She formerly worked as an Attorney specialising in family law.

She believes that when people engage with lawyers and the legal system around issues as important and intimate as their primary relationship, psychology is a crucial part of the process, and can ensure that the experience is positive, constructive and containing.

She lives in Cape Town with her partner, children, one dog and no cats.

Di Burger

Di Burger is a Family Counsellor, with a background in the medical health sciences. Her current field of expertise is in adult and paediatric palliative care, and bereavement support.

She believes in holistic practice, taking into account the physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions of clients.

She has three adult children and two grandchildren.  She also lives in Cape Town with her husband, and sadly misses her two dogs and two cats.

Di is registered with The Council for Counsellors in South Africa – registration number IR 0958.
