A few words from John…
I am very honoured to be the President of Cornwall Law Society.  I have worked in the legal profession for over 40 years and have seen many changes in that time.  I am proud to be a solicitor and believe that, as a profession, we provide an invaluable service to people who are going through a very stressful time in their lives, whether it is moving house, getting a divorce or having to deal with the affairs of a loved one who has died.
