David Botha established BDK Attorneys in 1960. He was considered one of the best criminal law experts in Johannesburg and earned a reputation as the most formidable cross-examiner in the business. David’s success in this area meant that he was feared by all witnesses and especially police witnesses.

Jannie Kruger and Piet Du Plessis were both prosecutors during this time and went up against David on many occasions. A professional relationship developed between the three, which ultimately lead to Jannie and Piet joining the practice in 1982.

Fate took a terrible turn when, David was tragically murdered in 1987. He was still practising law at the time of his death. This left the reigns of BDK to Jannie and Piet. Together, they have continued to grow the firm from strength to strength and up hold its core values.
