Melanie Hadwin



I am a solicitor in the Family Law team in Sheffield. I directly assist Martin Loxley, the National Head of family law at Irwin Mitchell, with complex, high value financial remedy cases.
I have worked in family law since 2004 and have specialised in this area since qualification in 2007. I deal with all aspects of family law including divorce, cohabitation issues, financial disputes and children law matters between parents and other relatives. I also have an interest in dealing with the relatively unusual area of Declarations of Parentage.
As a family solicitor you very often get to help people through one of the most difficult periods in their lives and it is extremely rewarding to know that I can support someone through that with both compassion and expertise.
I am a member of Resolution, a 6,000 strong group of lawyers committed to resolving disputes in a constructive and amicable way. I am Secretary of the South Yorkshire Resolution committee and an accredited specialist in private law children and financial remedy cases.

"There are no adequate words to express my thoughts on all you have helped me through and to achieve in the last few months. You have been an absolute rock, letting me vent when needed and bringing me down to earth when I got ahead of myself. Thank you for your patience and professionalism throughout what has been a really horrible year."
