Jess Smith


Having worked in law since 2014, Jess joined Bryant McKinnon in 2021, bringing with her experience in commercial, business and succession law. Jess is an experienced, empathetic and passionate lawyer and is drawn to family law out of a desire to provide meaningful help to those going through traumatic life experiences. Having spent time working in deceased estates she is also passionate about helping people prepare their succession plan. Did you know that over 50% of Australians do not have a Will or succession plan in place?

Coffs Harbour is home for Jess, her husband and two soccer mad boys. Jess and her family enjoy exploring their backyard and adventuring beyond our region. Jess is a lover of nature and an environmental warrior. Whether at home or on the road, Jess is committed to establishing a waste free lifestyle.
