Cynon Valley Leader, 22nd April 2010
A SOUTH Wales law firm founded by a Cynon Valley woman is continuing to expand.

Wendy Hopkins Family Law Practice has appointed a new trainee solicitor and its first marketing administrator.

Trainee solicitor Julia Taylor spent time studying in the Czech Republic before completing her Legal Practice Course at the College of Law, York. The Cardiff-based practice has also appointed Steve Devereux as its first marketing administrator.

The practice was co-founded by Melanie Hamer, of Godreaman, in 1996, as the first law firm in Wales dedicated solely to family law.

It is now one of the largest specialist family law firms in the UK.

“The fact that we have continued to grow as a firm, in this climate, is testament to the quality of the service we provide,” said Miss Hamer.
