I am a Solicitor in the Wills Trusts and Probate team. My workload consists of drafting wills, lasting powers of attorney, probate applications and trust documents. I can also assist with estate and trust administration and associated tax matters. I am based in our Colchester office, and am available to arrange a free 15 minute chat over the phone on 01206 217363.
I enjoy meeting with clients and being able to provide them with tailored advice and practical solutions for their situation.
I read law at the University of Sheffield and completed my LLB in 2016 before beginning my legal career at a law firm in Sheffield. I then joined Birkett Long as a paralegal in the Wills, Trusts and Probate team in 2017. I studied for my Graduate Fast-Track Diploma in Law with CILEx in 2018 and whilst waiting to complete the necessary work experience to qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive, I achieved a Distinction in my Legal Practice Course and qualified as both a Chartered Legal Executive and a Solicitor in 2021.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, long walks and spending time with friends and family.

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
Most young people aren't thinking about making a will and given I didn't have many assets to organise, I felt a little bit silly going into the appointment initially. However, Katey Stephenson gave me the utmost respect and made me feel as valued as any of her other clients.Ms Vicky Gayle
