Matthew Day

Matthew Day

Matthew started working at Maples in September 2018 shortly after receiving his A-Levels. He has worked in various areas of the firm, including our Family and Criminal Law departments, but has predominantly been working in our Residential and Commercial Property department. Ultimately he will have covered all areas of law the firm offers before focusing on his Commercial Property work.

Matthew is our Apprentice Solicitor. He studies at the University of Law on their Solicitor Apprenticeship scheme which is spread out to incorporate a Law degree, training contract and the solicitors' qualifying exams and he is currently in his fifth and final year. Once he has completed his course in 2024, Matthew will be a fully qualified Solicitor with a significant amount of experience and capabilities.

In August 2023, Matthew graduated from the University of Law with a 2:1 Classification which was very well deserved. His focus now is very much in our Commercial Property department and naturally the Solicitor Qualification Examinations in 2024.

Outside of work Matthew spends a large portion of his time training in the gym and playing a round or two of golf at the weekends.


"Matthew was very professional and explained each step of the process so that it was very clear. Made the otherwise stressful process, easy."

"Matthew provided me with a top level of feedback at every stage, great case ownership and I'll be back when buying our next property"

"Matthew Day provided an excellent service throughout our whole process. He was very informative and communicated effectively so that we always understood.  Overall we were very satisfied with Matthew's service and commend his knowledge and professionalism."

Jamie Dobbs FCILEx

"I should like to take this opportunity to express my very sincere and grateful thanks for Jamie's unfailing helpfulness and efficiency in all aspects of the handling of my late stepmother's estate. Jamie have always replied to my (many!) queries promptly and comprehensively which has been a enormous help throughout what I know can be a fraught and stressful process. Sadly, it is increasingly rare these days to experience the highs standards of service that Jamie has provided."

Gemma Mayer LLB

"I would highly recommend Maples Solicitors, especially Gemma Mayer, for any conveyancing work. The level of support and professionalism was excellent at all times. I also felt if I needed to ask or clarify anything that it was not an issue. Buying and selling a house is stressful enough, but Gemma helped me through it step by step."

Anita Toal LLB BA

"I think you are brilliant. You can use my comments above. You are efficient, friendly and quite clearly very good at what you do. Mainly you don’t leave people hanging around too long for." "So easy to talk to her and she understood what I wanted. She put me at ease and I cant thank her enough"

Daven Naghen LLB

"Daven provided an excellent service, from attending the first interview with me to the final court appearance. He filled me full of confidence that he would defend me to which he did and come out with an excellent outcome in view of my position that I had put myself in."

Faye Blair LLB

Faye was excellent, sensitive and acted very well to the time constraints we faced. Great service and dealt with compassion at such sad times made the process less painful very professional.

Jamie Dobbs GCILEx

Over the last forty years I have cause to deal with many law firms both in a personal and professional capacity, including some ‘top’ London Companies. In all of those dealings I have never found anyone as proactive and so willing to offer help and advice as Jamie Dobbs. During the last two years Jamie guided my parents through the completion of Lasting Powers of Attorney. Helped myself with the use of the LPA and recently dealing with Probate and Estate Administration following their death.
