I congratulate John Adamson, Eric Galbraith and Terry Kearns, for 50 years of service to the community as a Justice of the Peace.


More than 250 NSW JPs celebrated their Golden Jubilee of service in 2018-19. Nearly 130 attended a ceremony at NSW Parliament where they were presented with a commemorative certificate.


Just about everyone needs a JP at some point in their life – such as when they buy a house or access their superannuation – and John, Eric and Terry have always been happy to lend a hand.


JPs Act as independent witnesses to documents people need for a variety of purposes. Their main functions are to witness affidavits and statutory declarations, and they may also certify copies of original documents. JPs provide their services on a voluntary basis.
