Wendy Hopkins Family Law Practice was founded on 1st May 1996 as the first law firm in Wales devoted entirely to family law. It had for a long time been the dream of its partners to set up this niche family law practice. The partners are Melanie Hamer, Thea Hughes and Rhian Howells. Melanie and Thea previously worked together in the Family Law Department of Eversheds, Cardiff. Since 1996 the Firm has increased five fold.

  • I would recommend this business

Good service, and I always felt I had very good support from my allocated solicitor (Sam John). Emails and telephone calls were always answered promptly and there was plenty of back-up from other solicitors when Sam was unavailable such as when he was in court or on holiday. Gabriella Evans was particularly helpful in this regard, managing to defuse a difficult situation which would have otherwise have ended up in a costly court case.

  • I would recommend this business

In dealing with the team at Wendy Hopkins Family Law Practice, I have been struck by how compassionate and caring they are, and how insightful they are in identifying the right course of action to suit their client. They definitely don't fit the stereotype. They recommend action which will cause least pain and least unnecessary cost. Their reputation as being the best is justified, and they are also lovely people to deal with. I have already recommended them to a friend who has nothing but positive things to say about them too.

Customer Testimonials

I cannot thank you enough David, for your advice, support and guidance. Both you, and members of your team have provided me with a very professional service and dealt with all of our communications in an expedient, friendly and courteous manner.


I have always been thoroughly impressed by your professionalism, attention to detail and consideration throughout this challenging time, and for allowing me reach a far better, happier place


I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to you for representing me throughout a very difficult period in my life. When we met 15 months ago, I didn't think that I had any hope of being in the position that I am in now.


Staff were sensitive. Advice was clear and easy to understand. My Solicitor was responsive and proactively progressed my case to a positive conclusion

Going through a divorce is a painful and confusing process. We understand that, and as a family law specialist Wendy Hopkins Family Law Practice has the experience and expertise to help you through this difficult time with the best possible advice and support. We are based in Cardiff, Wales and our divorce specialists represent clients across the world. The only ground for divorce in England and Wales is that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.

But don't take our word for it! Our own clients often tell us how pleased they were with the advice we gave them, and the service they received.


The fair division of property is a key issue when resolving the financial aspects of a divorce or separation. At Wendy Hopkins Family Law Practice, we appreciate that this is not just a financial issue but that it can be an emotional one as well. When advising our clients we bring all of our experience and expertise to bear alongside an understanding and compassionate approach to appropriately advise with regards to property issues in family law. In some cases it is possible to resolve property issues by negotiation and agreement, and we think this is the best way to do it.
