BEN MCCARTHY

Lawyer

Originally from England, Ben has been uprooted twice in his life, first in high school and then for university. Leaving friends and family is never easy, but it helped shape Ben into the empathic and understanding individual he is today.

As one of our newest family lawyers, Ben’s proactive nature makes a difference in the outcomes of our clients. His remarkable versatility means he is always thinking outside the box to find realistic and achievable outcomes even when there appears to be no path forward. Not one to shy away from fraught situations, Ben navigates family matters smoothly, no matter how murky. Ben’s compassion and outstanding communication skills make him a superb family lawyer and property lawyer, which is crucial when dealing with splitting assets.

As one who likes to take chances and think outside the box, it is no surprise that a solo skydive is at the top of Ben’s bucket list. And when he’s not falling out of the Geelong skies, Ben can be found socialising with friends over a plate of delicious pasta at Bruenzo’s in Newcomb.

Whether at the gym, work or around Geelong, Ben finds common ground with everyone he meets. Feel heard and understood when you meet with Ben for all your family and property matters.
