Congratulations to newly qualified solicitor Peyton Matthews-Hewer

Marlborough Law is very excited to announce that our very own Peyton Matthews-Hewer is now a fully qualified solicitor! This is a huge deal as her years of hard work and dedication have paid off, for her as well as our little local firm. We are very pleased that she has accepted our offer to stay on as part of the Marlborough Law legal team.

Peyton went to Hungerford Primary and John O’Gaunt Schools and went on to attain a law degree at the University of Buckingham before completing her year-long LPC (Legal Practice Course) in Birmingham. LPC graduates must train for two years in an established firm and under the guidance of a qualified solicitor,in order to become qualified themselves. Peyton accepted a trainee position with us based at our Hungerford office at the Hungerford Legal & Financial Centre two years ago.

Peyton ticks all the boxes: a smart, ambitious, local, young person who is passionate about the law and sensible in her approach to hard work. She has made herself invaluable to the team and we could not be more proud of her achievements and the way she has added to our reputation in the community. She also made her mark in legal circles here as several offers came to her just after news of her qualification hit the Hungerford community. Happily for us she has chosen to stay with us and grow with our company.

“It has been an amazing two years and I have learned so much from Alex and Karen,” explains Peyton. “I passed my PSC exams with top marks in 2022 and then the countdown to qualification began.

“Working within a small firm has been great as it has allowed me to experience a variety of different aspects of the law and has given me the opportunity to find what I really enjoy – conveyancing and probate, client and family law. I have also been able to learn and practise on the job. I have not been pushed to the side, which is what many law firms do to their trainees. After studying in Buckingham and Birmingham I wanted to come back closer to home and in the last two years I have met and helped lots of people and have really become part of the community.”

So, now Marlborough Law has three solicitors available to offer you sound legal advice and help you through whatever issues you may have. As always, we offer a free half hour consultation – so it never costs you to find out if you need a lawyer or not.
