Neville helping the community for the past 29 years


I recently presented a special certificate to Mr Neville Howard in recognition of his 25 years of service as a Justice of the Peace for Queensland.

Neville first became appointed as a Justice of the Peace for Queensland on the 18th March 1988.

Neville has devoted almost 3 decades of service towards this role signing thousands of documents, statutory declarations and affidavits.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed being a JP as I have met a lot of interesting people over the past 29 years whilst assisting the community as part of this role.  This position has connected me with the community and I look forward to continuing to serve as a Justice of the Peace for Queensland for many years to come.” Neville Howard.

JP’s perform a diverse range of tasks to help the community and Neville has over the past 10 years attended to his duties in several local shopping centres.

The importance of these volunteers working within Queensland’s legal system cannot be underestimated and I would like to once again pay tribute to Neville for his outstanding efforts in this role on behalf of the thousands of people that he has assisted over the past 29 years.
