About our law practice

Our firm was founded in 1971 by Eric Moyle under the name of "E.J. Moyle & Co". Initially, Mr. Moyle practised from his own home but within a few months he had acquired premises in Rustington and the first proper office of the firm was in operation.

It became increasingly apparent that he would also need premises in Littlehampton as well as assistance with servicing an increasing clientele and in 1973 Martin White joined him as his assistant solicitor; subsequently becoming his partner in 1979. Also in 1973 the opportunity arose to purchase former bank premises which are now our main office based in Beach Road, Littlehampton. The following year, Tim Pitt joined as Eric Moyle's clerk and after qualifying in 1981 became a partner in 1986. With a mounting caseload, the firm soon needed another solicitor and in 1975 Tony Jones joined as an assistant solicitor and subsequently became the firm's third partner in 1982. The need for a proper ligitation department soon became apparent and in 1985 Alan Hodges agreed to amalgamate his firm, Messrs. Jackson & Hodges, founded in 1943, with ours.

In 1990 the firm's name changed slightly to "E.J. Moyle" and in October of that year Eric Moyle retired from the partnership. Later in 1998 Alan Hodges also retired. Having joined the firm as an assistant solicitor in 1997 to head the Litigation Department, Mike Kemp became a partner in 2002 to join Martin White, Tony Jones and Tim Pitt. In May 2008 Nadine Byrnes joined the partnership to head our matrimonial department having passed up the ranks from legal executive to solicitor and then to a partner.  On 30th April 2009 sadly Tony Jones chose to retire from the partnership leaving the remaining partners, Martin White, Tim Pitt, Mike Kemp and Nadine Byrnes, in charge.

The firm continues to bear Eric Moyle's respected name and to offer a high quality of service to all its clients.
