Mooney Ford Attorneys - A rich history with a strong foundation.


A Rich History with Strong Foundations.

Mooney Ford was established as a law firm over 100 years ago. It originated in May 1902 when a partnership was formed between Edward Jeffrey Holgate and Fred Blamey. The firm was then known as Blamey and Holgate. Edward Gilbert Ford, a prominent attorney, joined Blamey and Holgate shortly before World War Two and became the Senior Partner.

In 1955 the firm merged with Renaud, Fellows-Smith and Mooney with whom they had a long and close association. This resulted in a name change to Mooney Ford and Partners. The firm continued under this name from 1955 to 2002 when it changed its name to the present day Mooney Ford.

Various prominent lawyers have practiced at Mooney Ford including the legendary Jack Mooney a well known sportsman and Wally Chaplin, who, in the 1960’s, was a President of the Natal Law Society and a President of the then Association of Law Societies.
