We have a winner in the Boy’s Competition –
Josh from Maes y bryn Primary School in Llantwit Fardre is our worthy winner. Josh won Lego and a £50 donation towards his school. There were 500 entrants from schools across RCT so well done Josh, we love your painting of “My Family At Christmas” and hope you enjoy your lego! One of our Directors, Lauren Roche presented the prize to Josh and his headmaster Mr Roberts today.
We are delighted to announce that Lauren Roche has taken Directorship with Full Stop Law. Lauren joined us in 2015, came up through the ranks as paralegal and qualified as a solicitor with the firm. Lauren has been instrumental to the success of the private client department over the last 2 years and to Full Stop Law as a whole. Lauren’s role will now include her legal work but also regulation across our service, maintaining adherence with LEXCEL standards and data protection to name a few. Victoria Cannon, Full Stop Law’s managing director said “Lauren is the next generation of talented solicitors in the family law and private client field of late. She is analytical and she is forward thinking and although she hasn’t qualified as a solicitor that long ago, Lauren has an old head on young shoulders. Directorship is right for Lauren but also for Full Stop Law, so she can take the firm forward into the future.” All at Full Stop Law wish to congratulate Lauren and wish her the best in her new role.
We are delighted to announce that Victoria Jones has been selected to join the Law Society’s Children Law Panel. We are delighted and wish to offer Victoria a huge congratulations from all her friends and colleagues at Full Stop Law.
Managing Director, Victoria Cannon said “we had no doubt that Victoria would be accredited, she is dedicated to her line of work and is truly an expert in her field. She is an asset to Full Stop Law and we are delighted to have Victoria as part of our team.
It is envisaged that Victoria will now act for children in cases where guardians have been appointed but she will continue to act for parents where social services are involved in child legal matters. Her peers, to include barristers have commented that the children will be very lucky indeed to have Victoria Jones representing them. A huge congratulations once again. Well deserved!
Full Stop Law can now boast 3 accreditations, our fee earners have Law Society, Family Law Advanced Panel Membership, Children Panel Membership and we are LEXCEL accredited.

There is no need to book an appointment, all you need to do is drop in!
We look forward to seeing you there!
Our Summer Will Writing Campaign
Over the summer we have appeared at various over 50’s events in RCT to give talks. We have been asked lots of questions about WILL writing. Questions such as “do I need a Will” and “what would happen if I leave things to chance” often arise. You may be able to catch us at one of our talks, but what we can say is that in most cases, Will writing is essential and you need to get it right or your wishes will not be followed through.
People are often concerned about costs and we have seen some horrendous costs out there which are just unfair. Our usual costs are £130 plus vat for a single will but on the back of our talks, we are running a campaign, at our Pontyclun Office to ensure that our Will writing is affordable and easy. We are offering Will writing by a solicitor for £99 plus vat if you quote our Facebook page (expires 01/09/18).
Catch us soon at the Muni in Pontypridd for our Will writing day to raise funds for the Muni – the hub of the community in Pontypridd.
French Law Student Marie Lemaire’s Blog (July 2018)
Working at Full Stop Law was a great opportunity for me. As a French Law student, it was challenging regarding the language, the specific terms used in family law and the different proceedings. However, the team gave me the chance to follow them in their daily work such as assisting in appointments and helping with cases, allowing me to discover family law and, more broadly, the work done by solicitors. Not only the team was very welcoming, dynamic, and professional, but they were also encouraging and patient, answering all my questions. My next step is to finish my LPC and hopefully to qualify as a (family law) solicitor after a training contract. I would like to thank the Full Stop Law team for their support and the great time I had working with them.
Victoria Cannon our managing director said “having Marie with us for this week has certainly taught us a lot. We have learned quite a bit about family law in France and of course we’ve congratulated Marie on the football! It has been a pleasure to have Marie with us and we wish her all the very best in her career.”
On the 7th September 2018, Full Stop Law will hold a charity “High Tea and Unlimited Prosecco” event at the Muni in Pontypridd. This is part of their “Say No” to domestic violence campaign. Tickets cost just £20, and the afternoon is set to bring in a charity auction, with members of the third sector, dignitaries, councillors, and practitioners attending as well as those who simply wish to support the cause.
Full Stop Law hold weekly clinics at Women’s Aid and their cause is close to Full Stop Law’s ethos of being the People’s Solicitors and promoting vulnerable groups in the community.
Victoria Cannon, managing director of Full Stop Law said “we work well with Women’s Aid, we are always on the end of the phone or available for their service users upon call. We know the importance of this charity and wish to support it and bring publicity to their cause as much as we possibly can. This event will not only bring together all walks of life to consider domestic violence and it’s dramatic effects but allow an appreciation of the fantastic work that this charity does”.
If you wish to purchase a ticket or make a donation for our raffle, call Victoria Jones on 01443 238411 or email: Victoria.Jones@fullstoplaw.com.
