Mooney Ford was established in May 1902 when a partnership was formed between Edward Jeffrey Holgate and Fred Blamey. 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 Attorneys. 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 President of the Natal Law Society, as it was then known, and President of the then Association of Law Societies. Today, Mooney Ford is made up of a number of partners practicing in various specialist and general fields of law. The firm’s head office is located at The Boulevard in Park Lane, Umhlanga Ridge, Durban and also offers a conveniently located branch office at Bristol House in Hillcrest for those clients who live and work in the outer west area of eThekwini.
