About us

Welcome to Pro-law, the trading style of Professional Law Services Limited.

We are a law firm based in Bude, North Cornwall, offering “unreserved” legal advice and services to the community and surrounding areas.

Pro-Law was established by Director Ian Mason, who has over 40 years of experience in the legal profession, previously practising as a solicitor. The company started trading in 2016, and its main aim is to provide legal services to individuals and businesses at a reasonable cost. Ian is now joined by fellow Director and qualified Paralegal (ANALP), Koren Pitcher, general practice assistant, Grace McConnell, and trainee legal secretary/pa, Samantha Hirons.

However, we don’t just offer legal services, another significant aim of Pro-law is to provide training opportunities for people with aptitude and potential, but who for various reasons have not previously had the opportunity to get on to the law career ladder.

Furthermore, Pro-law seeks to support young people in the area by offering short periods of work experience for students at local secondary schools. We also aim to introduce “Law School Junior”, a course which will be delivered at our local secondary school to give young people an understanding of how the law works and how legal analysis and reasoning is developed and applied.

We are passionate about Bude, Cornwall, and the community, and want to see it continue to thrive.


Despite our director Ian Mason having had significant experience as a solicitor, we are not solicitors – we provide ‘unreserved’ legal services, which are legal services that are not reserved exclusively to members of a regulated legal profession. We are not subject to any regulatory body, which affects external complaints and redress processes available; instead, we do have internal complaint processes. Please contact us for more information about whether we can provide a particular service.
