Stars of Coffs Coast

Ben | Bryant McKinnon Lawyers

Ben, a partner in Bryant McKinnon Lawyers, a firm with over 40 years experience, helping Coffs Coast families navigate the difficult legal and personal decisions that come with relationship breakdowns and major family transitions. 


Spending his formative years in Bellingen, Ben gained his law degree at New England University, Armidale. Remaining local has given Ben an opportunity to not only gain an in-depth experience but also the opportunity to help people in his own community who are dealing with challenging family issues. It has also given Ben a chance to work with local school students providing legal coaching, working on mock trials or mediation.  


The best thing about living and working in the region is being able to appreciate the difference you are making to your community and the impact you can have on the lives of those around you.   


Participation in Cancer Council Stars of Coffs Coast provides an opportunity to give back to the local community in a different, more vibrant way, he said.  Training very hard for this event and picking up some inspirational insight into dancing, Ben has hired Strictly Ballroom, Dirty Dancing and Save the Last Dance from the video shop. 


A quote close to Ben’s heart is - ‘When you get the chance to sit out or dance, I hope you dance – Maya Angelou’.
