Del Copeland (née Raets) is Mbt Lawyer’s European connection having been born in Belgium (yes, she can speak French and will do so for an additional fee!). Del then grew up in New Zealand before her parents saw the light and jumped the ditch to Australia. Apparently Del decided she had not travelled enough already and moved between Brisbane, Perth and Armidale before settling in Coffs Harbour and commencing work at Mbt Lawyers in October 2011.
Del was admitted to the NSW Supreme Court as a Solicitor in October 2008 and now works closely with our fearless leader, Geoff Smede. As such Del’s expertise extends across Deceased Estates & Wills, Succession Planning and Conveyancing.
Del is an animal lover; her property resembles a menagerie for all domestic and livestock animals, she is an ardent supporter of the RSPCA and was an RSPCA cat carer for a time. Outside of hobby farming, Del’s hobbies include dog and goat walking, reading and watching Netflix.
We asked Del what she liked best about living on the Mid North Coast and she said the hot weather, the people, the hot weather, the beach and the hot weather. Did we mention she likes hot weather? This might have something to do with her time in Belgium, New Zealand and Armidale….
