Tara Schmidt

Tara brought her upbeat attitude to Shipton & Associates in 2022, following a successful stint at another local Northern Beaches firm. As our cheerful receptionist and legal secretary, Tara is not just the face of our practice but the warm greeting that welcomes you at our Manly Office. 

With an infectious enthusiasm, Tara has devoted her career to customer service roles, accumulating a wealth of experience since entering the legal industry in 2019. While her experience spans across various practice areas, she has a passion for all things conveyancing. 

Tara is currently undertaking studies to become a Licensed Conveyancer. Her goal is to provide Shipton & Associates' clients with comprehensive services in all matters related to property. 


Tara is what you might call a 'gym junkie'. If Tara isn't working up a sweat in the gym, she is competing in gym competitions for charity, going for a surf or hanging out with friends. Tara also laces up her running shoes for charity foundations, local run clubs and raising awareness for mental health organisations that are close to her heart. And yes, she loves a rejuvenating ice bath!

Always on the move, you're likely to spot Tara with a large iced latte in hand!


Tara's hallmark is her welcoming smile, and she does above and beyond to assist anyone who walks through our doors. From triaging client enquiries to answering questions with a smile, Tara ensures every interaction is a positive one. 

If you are ready to experience a warm welcome and impeccable service, step into the Tara Schmidt experience at Shipton & Associates!
