Pisanti Attorneys Incorporated was established in early 2017. When it was founded, we aimed to be a young and vibrant law firm which had a boutique and personal type feel. This ethos has not changed; our family has just gotten bigger.
Still situated in Bedfordview, Johannesburg but having relocated to new and bigger premises at the end of 2019, the firm is growing in both notoriety and stature.
Although a lot has changed since the firm was founded, the core principles and values it had at inception have not changed, our drive and desire to provide an unparalleled professional service to our clients remains our main priority.
Mr Pisanti began his studies at the University of the Witwatersrand where he did a Bachelor of Arts Degree before obtaining his LLB Degree through UNISA. Mr Pisanti prior to establishing his own law firm worked for two other very well-respected law firms in and around Johannesburg.
Mr Pisanti's fascination with Japanese culture and in particular the principals in which the ancient samurais lived their life's, inspired a Japanese theme being incorporated into his law firm, not only in the form of imagery but in practice too.
Mr Pisanti is steadfast in the belief that the certain fundamental principles should be at the core of his law firm, much like the ancient samurai belief in bushido.
Mr Pisanti has done his utmost to implement these principals in his law firm, more specifically being ones of honesty, integrity, truthfulness, honour, loyalty, respect, compassion and self-control. These principals are vital to making a law firm not only work more effectively but give the maximum benefit to clients.
Mr Pisanti belief in these ideals is centred around his intention to created long lasting and fruitful relationships between him and his clients.
Bushido, also known as the way of the warrior is a Japanese collective term for the many codes of honour and ideals that dictated the samurai way of life.
Our samurai inspired theme is firmly rooted and linked with the 8 virtues of Bushido which are:
Always strive to do the right thing; you may not be able to control the rest of the world but you can seek to follow a just path in your own life. Always do right by others but at the same time maintain your integrity when no one is watching.
To be truly courageous means to face your life as a whole, with absolute confidence that you will overcome any challenge and eventually realize happiness.
To be compassionate is to understand not only ourselves and our purpose but also the desires and wishes of others and how our actions affect those people.
There are many forms of power in the world and they can either be used to help other and/or hurt them. To command respect one must earn it and use it to help others.
To be truthful is to remain honest in one's dealings with others, when one speaks the truth others will know that you are telling the truth and this will become something others can rely on.
To be honourable is to know your best self, honour is a representation of who you are as a person. It is your word, your actions and your very worth as a person, all-encompassing reflected in others.
To be truly loyal one must know their place in the world, by being loyal you create unbreakable bonds that in time show other the value you place in them.
SELF - CONTROL
This final principal encapsulates the seven preceding ones, one must express great self-control in order to follow the path of the warrior.
Our firm and our staff aspire daily to achieve these virtues, these ideal will always be reflected by us in both the way we communicate with our client's and deal with their matters.
