Balmain Lawyers 

Balmain Lawyers D’Arcy Sloman Peacock has a long history in Balmain. In 2013 the law firm acquired the well-respected local firm David Trodden & Associates. While the firm has changed its name over the years, our solicitors have continued with the core values that began with the firm over 30 years ago: Quality legal advice, savvy court experience and value for money services are all qualities that have long defined our law firm.

Our lawyers in Balmain believe that the best advice comes from experience. Unlike many inner-city firms, all of our staff are senior practitioners. Vince regularly appears in the Local Courts and has a combined knowledge of both the law and the practice of it that achieves results. When he is not in court he specialises in property conveyancing (including off the plan purchases) wills, probate and family provision matters. Our legal team also provides criminal and traffic law services.

Chris concentrates now solely on conveyancing, wills and probate with the firm operating mainly in Balmain, Balmain East, Rozelle & Birchgrove.

What Our Clients Are Saying

In 2002, I had a motor accident and ended up in a wheelchair. Vince helped me during my difficult time with his good heart and professionalism. I cannot thank him enough all these years.

We bought two properties. Vince and Kerry made a complicated buying process super easy. We highly recommend this company to everyone.

Simon and Julia

Buying your first home can be a very daunting experience. The team at D’Arcy Sloman Peacock enabled us to purchase with confidence. They offered expert advice and calmly explained each detail and process in a manner we were able to understand. We cannot recommend them highly enough to any prospective property buyers.

Simon Marshall & Sarah Beggs

My case was presented to the Magistrate in such a concise and articulate way that was really impressive and professional.


Thanks so much for the brilliant job Kerry and Vince did for us, we’ve been very pleased with the quality of your service and will heartily recommend your company to others in the future.

Don & Laurel

As first time buyers in Australia, we had the help we needed to secure the property of our choice, with all documentation and conveyancing duties taken care of by the D’Arcy Sloman team. The purchase was made simpler with prompt and clear communication from Vince and Kerry through emails and phone calls, in and out of business hours (very grateful for), mapping out precise points of the exchange and settlement process which really guided us for planning finances and documents. We highly recommend their service and hope others can benefit from the same professional guidance too!
