Edward Howard


Ed joined Bryant McKinnon and moved to Coffs Harbour immediately after finishing his law degree in Armidale. Starting as a junior lawyer, he spent his first-year shadowing Ben and Heather, learning the intricacies of family law.

Admitted as a solicitor in 2023, Ed now works across a broad portfolio of clients on a wide range of family law matters.

Family law is a good fit for Ed, who enjoys providing the assistance people need in difficult times. He loves the friendliness and collegiality of Bryant McKinnon, and feels the team is able to bring a community approach to helping clients.

Ed is at home in Coffs Harbour, declaring it just the right blend of country and city. And being on the coast is a treat for this surfer and diver.

Beyond the law and the ocean, Ed loves music. A guitar player and singer, you might see him around town on one of his occasional gigs.
