History

Honesty, integrity and commitment to our clients: it’s how we’ve worked since 1882. And while the law has undergone many changes since then, we’ve continued to passionately and professionally pursue the best results for our clients.

Take a look back at the evolution of our boutique practice:

1882
Charles Thomas Poole sets up his practice – CT Poole & Son.

1914
Son Leonard partners with Charles and continues the practice until his father’s passing in 1966.

1966
CT Poole & Son joins forces with Maurice Buckley Snr and his son Maurice Buckley Jnr.

1970
John Poole is welcomed into the practice as partner. When the Buckleys retire, John continues the practice as principal.

1988
After moving from Sydney CBD to Milson’s Point, the practice shifts to Norberry Terrace in North Sydney.

2013
On 11 February, the office moves to its present location at 5 Napier Street, North Sydney.

Today’s team

Principal John Poole and associate Daphne Gibbins have worked together for many years.

John is in the office every day and can visit clients at home, in hospital or at another convenient location. Daphne works in the office 3 days a week.

While we have support staff to help us provide a full suite of services, John and Daphne meet with clients to discuss issues and have documents signed.

Wills and estates law is a complex area. And too often, problems arise when wills and estates aren’t properly planned and managed.

We work in your best interest at all times. Whether you need a conveyancing expert, executor advice or assistance preparing or contesting a will, we’ll handle your affairs with care and veracity.
