Emma Harper

Senior Associate, Fellow of CILEx
I am a qualified member of STEP and I am knowledgeable in the field of wills, trusts, tax and probate. I am based in our Colchester office, and am available for a free 15 minute chat over the phone on 01206 217387.
I manage a mixed case load of wills, lasting powers of attorney, trusts, probate and tax work. I have wanted to be a lawyer since watching Crown Court at an early age. I enjoy helping people through what can very often be a traumatic time in their lives and giving them peace of mind.
I am a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives. I am also a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.
I am a governor of a local primary school and enjoy a good book, and fishing. I also am trained in Karate.

Wills, Trusts and Probate Team - Colchester

Our team's friendly approach ensures that clients are put at ease and made aware that they will be looked after. All members of the team are happy to discuss a client’s needs over the telephone for an initial 15 minutes at no cost. Once it is established what a client needs, fixed fees are almost always available to provide certainty to our clients.

What our clients say

  • I have been a client of Birkett Long for around 20 years. They do what they say they are going to do and they do it well. In a world of sloppy, off-hand "service" they are a breath of fresh air.
  • Such efficiency and genuine friendly atmosphere is rare to experience in these days.
  • It has been a great pleasure to use Birkett Long as my Solicitors. I recommend their Solicitors and all various staff who work for them. As a client, I have experienced a warm, welcome and pleasant relaxed atmosphere. Their efficiency and honesty is paramount. They make a good cup of coffee too!
  • Birkett Long provide a practical approach to this sensitive work and ensure great attention to detail. They are prepared to go the extra mile to assist their clients.Client testimonial from the Legal 500
  • Thank you to Emma Harper for the work carried out in finalising the outstanding payment, which came to light after a number of years, in relation to my late mother-in-law's estate and HMRC.
