Our History

Dorrington Poole Lawyers was founded in 1914 by Percy Dorrington. Marcus Poole joined the partnership in 1948 and held a practicing certificate until 2006. 

In 1990 a merger took place with Dobson Smith & Co, Nicola Roberts being a partner of Dorrington Poole (and daughter of Marcus Poole) and Stuart Smith being a partner of Dobson Smith & Co. Nicola retired 31st December 2017 and Stuart on the 31st of March 2020, but Stuart remains with Dorrington Poole as a consultant. The firm still acts for families of some of the earliest clients. The long term relationship with those clients gives continuity in a fast changing world. Our lawyers and staff are proud to be part of a culture that values its clients and provides quality professional advice in a relaxed and rural friendly manner.



In Our Community

At Dorrington Poole alongside providing legal services to our clients, a key motivator living in a rural community is helping others reach their goals and find solutions. As a team we are keen to get involved and support on our local community in various ways. 

Many of our staff contribute their time and services within the community on various boards, trusts with charitable objectives.

A lot of our selected community groups and events we sponsor comes about through clients which our clients are involved with or that our staff are personally involved with/have a passion for.
