April McLaughlin

A lawyer in WGC Lawyers’ body corporate and dispute resolution practice areas, April works closely with Director Rhiannon Saunders in offering clients practical and effective guidance with body corporate issues, which includes advisory work as well as disputes concerning committees, caretakers, letting agents and owners.

April joined WGC in August 2021, having previously worked at a local law firm specialising in traffic law, criminal law, domestic violence, wills and estates, employment law and general litigation.  The various areas of law that April has practiced in has provided her with a broad skill set which enables April to assist our clients with other areas outside of body corporate and dispute resolution.

Outside the office, April volunteers at the Cairns Community Legal Centre as part of their volunteer service and enjoys spending time with her husband, keeping her Australian Shepherd occupied, gardening and cooking.
