Family Law, Associate
Benjamin’s appreciation of the human elements of family law attracted him to practice solely in the area. He takes great pride in his performance under pressure, while maintaining his focus on the most important aspect of any family law matter – his client and their family unit.
Benjamin loves working in the closeknit regional community of Coffs Harbour. He regularly passes families he has helped on the street and enjoys seeing the positive impact of his work in the ‘real world’.
Slater and Gordon suits Benjamin perfectly. He is a team player and being part of an interactive workplace allows him to collaborate with other experts in his field, while also drawing from the firm’s vast range of legal practice areas and resources.
