Rachel Carrington-Matthews, Probate Team Leader & Senior Associate at Hedges Law

Rachel Carrington-Matthews

Team Leader & Senior Associate

I started working at Hedges in 2019 and am lucky enough to now be Team Leader of the Probate Team.

My area of expertise is all aspects of private client work, but I specialise in advising on probate and the administration of estates.

I am a member of The Association of Lifetime Lawyers, which is a specialist group of lawyers who are trained to support and make a difference to older and vulnerable people.

I studied at the University of East Anglia for my undergraduate degree in international politics, before converting to Law, studying at the University of Law in London, qualifying as a Solicitor in 2014.

Outside of working at Hedges, I love to spend my spare time being outside exploring with my two young daughters.


"When you unexpectedly have to deal with the death of your best friend, the legal process of probate is somewhat daunting. Fortunately, from the very first phone call to Hedges, I knew I was in safe hands."
