“From my first conversation with Wendy Hopkins Family Law, I felt in safe hands. Rebecca Knight represented me throughout my divorce and at all times she has been reassuring, supportive and absolutely focused on my needs and securing me a fair and reasonable settlement. I worked with Rebecca’s colleagues to draft a Will, which was also dealt with sensitively and with great advice and support. Rebecca has always been responsive, pragmatic, full of common-sense and empathy and has helped me to navigate a stressful and at times, confusing process. I have always felt like she and the wider team have acted in my best interests and the settlement that has been secured for me, has enabled me to look forward, positively and build my new life. 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. I would have no hesitation about recommending Rebecca and the team at Wendy Hopkins to any friends or family who face a relationship breakdown. Thank you.”
“Rebecca was absolutely amazing. She helped me through a very difficult time and was always there to support me. Such a lovely lady who is friendly and very approachable. She always explained everything clearly and ensured I had a good understanding. I really appreciate her help and guidance.”
“Thank you so much for your continued support. I am really lucky to have you looking out for me and guiding me through this horrible situation.”

“Divorce is tough! However, I was fortunate enough to be represented by Ms Rebecca Knight of WHFLP. I felt completely confident in her as my solicitor. From the moment we first met, Rebecca put me at ease, she was quick to grasp the issues I was facing – this made me, at such an emotionally charged and vulnerable time…feel safe. Her professionalism and legal expertise impressed me so much that subsequently I have recommended her to my friend who has become a new client. You need someone like Rebecca to be on your side if you are facing a divorce! My biggest compliment would be that I wouldn’t want her to be representing my exH!!”
“Rebecca Knight tells it how it is. She believed in me and I felt she had my best interests at heart throughout the most difficult period of my life. I will be forever grateful.”
