Leah Woodnott


I am a Paralegal specialising in the wills, trust and probate team. I am based in our Colchester office, and am available for a free 15 minute chat over the phone on 01206 217609. 

I joined Birkett Long in August 2014, I qualified as a Float Legal Secretary. This detailed training gave me the ability to be able to work in all the various legal and financial teams in Birkett Long and I was able to work across all three offices. I was also responsible for the training of trainee members in the Quality and Float Secretary team.

In September 2016, I moved into a Legal Support Assistant role within the Court of Protection and Inheritance Disputes team and in December 2018, I joined the Wills, Trust and Probate team as a Paralegal.

I am currently studying towards my CILEX accreditation to become a Legal Executive.

I am a Dementia Friend and I spend most of my free time with my family and friends.
