First Class Expertise in the Valleys
Our Managing Director, Victoria Cannon has recently been awarded the coveted Award of being one of the TOP Three Divorce Lawyers in RCT. Victoria, who is also the founder of Full Stop Law has been practising in divorce law for over 15 years, has dealt with high net worth cases involving national businesses and famous clients. Victoria who was born and raised in Pontypridd is passionate about bringing affordable legal services to Pontypridd and the surrounding the Valleys but with no shortage upon the expertise that her clients receive.
Victoria says ” I trained in Cardiff and had excellent experience learning my skills. However, I always knew that that I would return to RCT to practice. This is my home and although there are very good matrimonial and separation lawyers in Cardiff, some of us have now left and operate in the valleys and can offer reasonable costs as our overheads are a little lower. I set up Full Stop Law with the ethos that the quality that our clients receive would be first class and I have achieved that goal with a talented set of solicitors around me dealing with elderly clients, children as well as divorce and separation. I believe that we need to bring talent and business back to the valleys to promote growth. I am delighted to have been named as one of the top three family layers in RCT. This means that our commitment to our community is working, especially as we have only been running for 10 years.”
Victoria’s colleagues have commented that she is a “safe pair of hands” when dealing with finances upon divorce and that she will do her “utmost” for her clients. Victoria practises from the Pontypridd office but also travels to Pontyclun to see clients. In addition to practising law, Victoria also lectures in law at Cardiff and the Vale College.
Those who know the work of Full Stop Law will be aware that they also give back to the community with sponsorship and schemes for over 50’s. They are aware of their social responsibility and run free legal clinics each week at their Pontypridd and Pontyclun Offices. There is a strong ethos upon giving back to the community.

The Mountaineers of Full Stop Law…..(?)
Two of our Directors were determined to conquer the mountain this weekend (22/06/19). Taking the hardest route up (because they didn’t know anything different until they saw the calibre of the people passing them in full kits) they hit the summit after around 1.5 hours of wheezing. Legs like jelly they were in awe of the sights and even posted a cheeky pic. They were glad however to come down the easier way with a Burger and a Coke as a reward at the bottom.
They will continue their training for the Shine Walk in aid of cancer research in October 2019 – well done TEAM!
Our Managing Director, Victoria Cannon receiving a bouquet from the Players……
Thank you so much – to all organisers, coaches, back room staff and our course the PLAYERS!
You’re gratitude really made us feel humble. It is an absolute pleasure to sponsor the boys and we hope to continue to do so for years to come. Brilliant season and such talent in the mini’s game. Keep it up boys !!!!
OLE! OLE! OLE!
We are beaming with pride today, Pontypridd RFC under 13’s who we have the pleasure to sponsor, won the Cardiff Blues Land Rover Cup at the Arms Park on Sunday 19th. They played Tonyrefail RFC in the final and won with a convincing score 39 -7.
We have had the pleasure to sponsor this team for many years and to watch them grow in skill and knowledge of the game. Lets not forget about the organisers and coaches (mainly parents) whose time, effort, sweat and tears are second to none in bringing this all together. They certainly deserve a mention.
Victoria Cannon, our managing director said ” We are delighted to be a small part of a winning team. We have had the honour to sponsor these boys over the years and this is the second time that they have won this competition. What an achievement. We really are looking at a special team. We have little doubt that we are looking at future stars of the game in a few years. Pontypridd RFC have had a turbulent season off the field but support for the club is as fantastic as ever and with youngsters coming through the ranks, the heritage of the club will never fade. ” Da Iawn boys and thank you…..
Pontypridd RFC under 13’s have won their match against Llanishen RFC in a cold showdown at the Wern in Merthyr. As Pontypridd RFC supporters will know, this venue is not a comfortable place for the Pontypridd visitors but that did not deter these boys at all. Our under 13’s stepped up to the mark and came away with the “W” in a hard fought affair with both teams scoring some great tries and showing some great skills for the future. Now Pontypridd RFC go on to the Final at the Arms Park in the Land Rover Cardiff Blues Cup and Plate competition in May.
You will see that at the end of the picture (to the left) there is a strange figure not wearing a club jersey but who is shorter than most of the team. This is our managing director, Victoria Cannon. Victoria attended at the game and had the following to say ……”We are so proud to sponsor this team and wish to congratulate the boys but also to acknowledge the hard work that the parents put in week by week to make this happen. The Pontypridd RFC senior squad have had had some difficulties off the field of late but it’s good to see young talent coming through the ranks to give the family of Pontypridd RFC a boost. I have no doubt these will be stars of the future. It’s great for the community and we at Full Stop Law are delighted to have had the opportunity to support this team in their formative rugby years.”
We shall keep you posted about the final………………
