Dobbyn & McCoy Solicitors

Project overview

Dobbyn McCoy is one of the oldest legal practices in Ireland. Situated in the Viking Triangle in Waterford city, it has been providing legal services to local businesses and private citizens for over 200 years. Throughout that time it has continued to evolve while remaining faithful to its founding principles. The firm has four partners, two solicitors and a full administrative support team.


We got to know them a few years ago when they first approached us for some help on a particular project. We kept in touch thereafter so when the opportunity arose to re-do their website, we were happy to oblige.


It was a great project to work on. The only challenge was managing their time. Like any legal practice, they’re very busy people, always in and out of court, so it was difficult at times to get facetime with them and keep the project moving. We got there in the end and they were delighted with the finished product.

Their previous website was beginning to show its age. The design was dated and lacked impact. The content was old and needed a refresh. The overall appearance didn’t reflect their proud history and community standing. The key objective therefore of the new website was to project a modern and positive image of the firm. It needed to instil a new sense of confidence and credibility.


From a design and build perspective, the website was reasonably straightforward. There was no complicated backend or ecommerce functionality, just a series of simply designed but very effective webpages. Our main goal was to personalise the legal profession and ‘humanise’ the people involved. The photographs we arranged showed the partners, solicitors and support team in comfortable poses, not stuffy suits. The biographies we co-wrote showed them as approachable, friendly people.
