Beth and her team were approachable and gave clear legal advice during my divorce. They guided me through the whole process from start to finish and delivered exactly what I asked of them.”

“Bethan was fantastic. She was professional, knowledgeable and showed empathy throughout. She went above and beyond to support me with all aspects of my divorce. I would highly recommend the services from Bethan and Wendy Hopkins Family Law. Divorce is challenging enough; it was reassuring to have the support of my solicitor throughout. Someone I felt I could trust and had my best interests.”

“From start to finish, this lady was absolutely flawless! She went above and beyond anything I ever could have hoped for. She was an angel during the toughest period of my life… I cannot recommend this company and especially Bethan enough.”

“I found Bethan so friendly and professional. She was always available for me, even on weekends she would answer her phone if it was an emergency and to be honest if it wasn’t for Bethan I would’ve really struggled through my divorce. She helped me in so many ways which weren’t even in her job description. I feel she went above and beyond at all times. I always highly recommend Bethan.”

“Bethan and the whole team were excellent during a very difficult time.”

“I highly recommend Bethan Tapper at Wendy Hopkins, I talked to a few other solicitors regarding my case and they all dismissed me; I started to feel dishearten before reaching out to Bethan. Bethan listened and not only took the time to understand the situation but did the research and work to win the case. I am very grateful for her and can’t recommend her enough.”

“I certainly felt my emotional health has been cared about having Rebecca, Chris, Bethan and Esther in my corner at what has been one of the most difficult times of my life.”

“If I could give 6 stars I would have. I have been a client of Wendy Hopkins family law firm for roughly two years and from personal experience are outstanding at what they do. I have directly dealt with Bethan Tapper who is a credit to your law firm. Her professionalism and dedication to my personal case has been nothing more than exceptional. Sensitive and complex issues have been dealt with in a timely manner with attention to detail. I fully trust them to deliver and have already recommended the firm to others. Simply excellent.”

“From start to finish, Bethan and all of her team (including my barrister, Michael Hammett) were outstanding every step of the way. I genuinely am deeply grateful for everything the company has done for myself and my daughter.”

“I was recently recommended your practice by a friend and was quickly allocated Bethan Tapper as my solicitor. Bethan quickly took over and also realised that she was working within difficult time constraints, but nonetheless, took on my case with professionalism and speed. She has worked tirelessly on my case which was extremely complicated due to a copious amount of paperwork from previous hearings until late into the evenings in order to submit my paperwork to the courts in time. I just want to thank your company and particularly  Bethan for all of her hard work. After twenty years of horrendous abuse by my ex-husband, she has finally managed to provide me and my children with a sense of justice. Even if we had not won in court, her sheer hard work and determination could not have been taken away from her. I will be highly recommending your company in the future and especially Bethan.”

“Bethan Tapper and her team were brilliant throughout with their timely, professional and understandable legal advice they gave, which ultimately lead to a very positive outcome for us in an unusual dispute. The Barrister they instructed was also excellent and similarly very professional and knowledgeable throughout. I would highly recommend Wendy Hopkins Family Law Practice, if you require Family Law advice.”

“I was really impressed with everyone’s commitment on my case, the service was fantastic. I’m really happy with the outcome, thank you to Sam John and Bethan Tapper.”

“Bethan has gone above and beyond to help me and has brought my confidence back. I don’t know what I would have done without her.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you deeply for all your efforts, your work has been exemplary.”

“Many, many thanks to you as you and your team have all been incredibly supportive throughout.”


In her spare time, Beth enjoys spending time with her family, including her two rescue dogs, Daisy and Douglas.
