John Ross & Son

Originally opened in 1931 in Conway Square, followed by 60 years in Frances Street, we have now moved to newly renovated premises at 21 High Street, Newtownards. We are proud to continue

to serve and be a part of the local community. While staff has changed over the years, the ethos of the firm has not. We still believe that the law is a profession, not just a business and will treat you as a valued client and not a commodity. Our approach retains a strong commitment to the traditional family values of our private clients, whilst supplying a range of commercial services to our business clients.
