D’Arcy Sloman Peacock has a long history here in Balmain. While the firm has changed names as the partners have changed, we have continued with the core values that began the firm over 30 years ago. Quality advice, Court experience and value have long defined our practice.
Unlike many law firms, we believe that the best advice comes from experience. And, unlike many inner city firms, all of our staff are senior practitioners, who appear regularly in the Local Courts and have a combined knowledge of both the law and the practice of it that achieves results.
With Vince D’Arcy and Chris Peacock now heading the firm, we believe our services are second to none.
1980 – The firm, originally called White & Downey Solicitors, was established by Geoff White and Lee Downey.
2000 – Des Sloman and Vince D’Arcy were employed as solicitors at White & Downey.
2003 – Des and Vince took over the firm as the principal solicitors upon the retirement of the then principal, Geoff White, Lee Downey having already left the firm in the early 1990s.
2004 –The firm, having kept its old name for around a year, then became D’Arcy Sloman Solicitors.
2008 – Chris Peacock, a respected solicitor who has practised locally in Balmain for many years as Chris Peacock & Co. Solicitors, joined our practice. The practice was then renamed D’Arcy Sloman Peacock Lawyers shortly thereafter.
With Vince D’Arcy and Chris Peacock now heading the firm, we believe our services are second to none. Our conveyancing and support staff, Kerry and Carole, both local and actively involved residents of the area, each have over 20 years paralegal experience.
Vince was admitted as a solicitor in 1999 and began practising in 2000 as an employee of White & Downey Solicitors. In 2003, in conjunction with Des, Vince took over the firm.
For a long period of time Chris worked as a freelance scriptwriter until he dusted off his Legal Practising Certificate and resumed work as a lawyer.
