Family solicitors Eluned Roberts and Rebecca Meehan have been appointed to Slater Heelis at the firm’s Deansgate office in Manchester.

Eluned qualified as a solicitor in 2011, having completed her training in north Wales and later worked at a well respected firm in Cheshire. She has gained experience in family law matters including complex children cases, often involving social services.

Rebecca qualified as a solicitor in 2016, since which time she has practised exclusively in family law. She specialises in children and financial matters following the breakdown of a marriage or cohabitating relationship.

Mark Heptinstall, partner and head of the family team, said: 'The continual increase in demand for our services is testament to the quality of the service we offer. This year, so far, has proved to be exceptionally busy with six fee earners joining our team in the last nine months and we are still recruiting. We are delighted to be welcoming not one, but two, extremely talented new solicitors to our team in Manchester.

'Both Eluned and Rebecca are highly-skilled professionals and their expertise coupled with their personable manner will really complement our current client offering.'
