In 1867 John Pissey, a 21 year old from Hounslow, qualified as a Solicitor. He changed his name to John Copland, moved to Sheerness (he had family on the Kent coast) and set up his own office as a Solicitor (you could do that then), opening his office just before Christmas that year.
Today we are still a family business now in the fifth and sixth generations spread between two families of lawyers. We are still part of our local community inside and outside of work.
We act for a wide range of medium and small businesses, institutions, families and individuals, mostly with a connection to Sheppey and the North Kent area. Whilst most of our work involves, buying, selling, managing and dealing with disputes over property, trusts, estates, divorce, personal injury and consumer, we still conduct a criminal defence and some family child care based Legal Aid work. Our work is hugely varied and we are proud to be a genuine general practice able to tackle a wide range of problems for the community we serve.
