Geoff Smede – Lawyer Coffs Harbour


Geoff Smede is our resident guru in legal matters whether it is Commercial and Business Law, Deceased Estates, Succession Planning or Property Law.

A former Partner of 35.5 years, now Special Counsel, Geoff was born in the Big Smoke, bounced around the Southern hemisphere as a precocious child before returning to Sydney to learn to become the lawyer he is today. Geoff will tell you he was admitted to the NSW Supreme Court too long ago. Don’t tell him we told you so but this was in 1978. His real life didn’t start until he moved to beautiful Coffs Harbour in 1981 and started working at Mbt Lawyers (then Murray & Backhouse). He has 2 sons born and raised in Coffs Harbour, one now living and working in Brisvegas and the other experiencing life in various overseas locations.

An irrepressible golfer, Geoff can often be found at the 19th hole at Bonville Golf Course. If you can’t find him there he might be on his motorbike, horse riding, canoeing, surfing, fly fishing, bird watching (the feathered variety), playing tennis, push bike riding or trekking across Bhutan and Kashmir. Phew! Best just wait for him at our office….
