Passing The Ball To Stacks
Long serving Taree lawyer Spencer Davies is passing the ball to his old law school rugby mate Tim Stack as he retires and hands his legal firm to the respected Stacks Law Firm.
“In a way we’ve gone full circle from our law school days – I was a second rower and Tim was one of the flash backs for the law school team – so it’ll be up to him to carry the ball from now on,” Mr Davies said as he announced his legal practice will be taken over by Stacks on 9 April.
After 38 years serving the people of Taree, the last 16 as a sole practitioner with his wife Wendy working as legal secretary, Spencer Davies will be changing lifestyle and moving south to Tasmania where his wife comes from and his daughter is now living.
“I’ve loved living in Taree since I moved here when I was 26 years old. My three children grew up here and went to school at Taree High. I played rugby for the Taree Bulldogs until aging muscles told me at 33 it was time to hang up the boots.
Mr Davies devoted a lot of time and energy to Taree community organisations and was elected president at different times of both Lions, Toastmasters and Rotary. It was at Rotary that he worked closely with Maurie Stack OAM who is the incoming District Governor for Rotary.
“I am really pleased Stacks has agreed to take on my clients as I retire as I know both Tim and Maurie personally, and I’m confident they will give the same personal and friendly assistance to people who need legal help that I have sought to provide for almost forty years,” Mr Davies said.
Tim Stack OAM, chairman of Stacks Law Firm, welcomed Mr Davies’ clients into Stacks where they will be able to be helped by more than 70 lawyers in the Stacks network with expertise and skills in a wide variety of areas of law.
“We may be larger than Spencer’s firm, but we operate on exactly the same principle to provide a caring family service on a personal, friendly level.
“We treat our clients in exactly the same way we would like to be treated if we were in their situation. It’s a philosophy begun by my father in 1931 when he began Stacks Law Firm in Wingham, and despite all the advances in technology we couldn’t imagine working any other way.”
