Maurice Buckley, C.T. Poole & Son


Serving Sydney for over 130 years


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:

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

Son Leonard partners with Charles and continues the practice until his father’s passing in 1933.

CT Poole & Son joins forces with Maurice Buckley & Co (Maurice Buckley Snr and his son Maurice Buckley Jnr) as Maurice Buckley, CT Poole & Son.

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

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

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

John Poole commences a partnership with Philip Davis, a practitioner with over 20 years’ experience.

The office is open every day and John and Philip are available to visit clients at home, in hospital or at any other convenient location.

Ably supported by three support staff, John or Philip will meet with clients to discuss issues and to supervise the signing of documents.

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

We work in your best interests 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.







Estate Accounting

We specialise in preparing detailed and accurate estate records, ready for submission. If you’re acting as an executor, this can make all the difference during a complex process.

Powers of Attorney & Guardianship

Who will make financial, legal and lifestyle decisions on your behalf if you’re unable to? When we meet to discuss your will, we can discuss why, how and who to appoint as an Enduring Power of Attorney or Enduring Guardian.
