Katey Stephenson


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.
