REBECCA WOOD ELECTED VICE-PRESIDENT OF PLYMOUTH LAW SOCIETY
We are pleased to announce that Rebecca Wood, who is the Head of the Criminal Litigation department at Woollcombe Yonge, has been elected the Vice-President of the Plymouth Law Society for 2022.
Plymouth Law Society was established in 1851 with first President, Henry Woollcombe, the founding member of Woollcombe Yonge Solicitors. The society works with law firms, and other businesses within the legal sector, to provide a collective voice and a collaboration as a local, legal community. Craig Moore has been elected as President this year and takes over from James Walsh, who has been President for two years as a result of the pandemic.
“I am delighted to have been elected, after joining the Plymouth Law Society committee two years ago. There have certainly been challenges for lawyers across my time with the law society so far and there are set to be further challenges ahead. Plymouth has a fantastic legal community and I will work with colleagues to address the issues that we face as a sector. As my background is in criminal law, I am passionate about justice for all. I am also keen to keep wellbeing in the workplace a priority. This is an exciting challenge and having colleagues, Tracey Baker and Charles Parry, who have in more recent years been past Presidents of Plymouth Law Society, I am looking forward to being Vice-President this year.”
"As a family we found the service provided to us was delivered with ’empathy’ and was in fact ‘outstanding’, we would most certainly recommend Woollcombe Yonge to friends.”
