Of particular interest to Geoff is the emerging area of ‘Elder Law’ and he regularly advises senior citizens and their families in relation to succession planning; the appointment of enduring powers of attorney and enduring guardian; retirement village contracts; deeds of guarantee in relation to finance agreements and also reverse mortgages. Colleagues describe him as empathic and understanding with great attention to detail, and as having a strong sense of justice for all people in the community, especially the most vulnerable.
