Our operations team consists of a principal lawyer, a practice coordinator and many volunteers. Given our modest budget, we believe our client service and compliance are handled with remarkable professionalism and efficiency.

Renee Skennar


Renee is My Community Legal’s coordinator of operations.

She is passionate about the legal industry and providing support services to those most in need in the community.

As current Griffith University Undergraduate, Renee is exploring the world of Business and Law, using theoretical knowledge from the class room and seeking out its practical “real world” application.

We live in an imperfect world which means there is always room for improvement and from that we can build success.
