Phoebe Trott

Trainee Solicitor

I am a Trainee Solicitor in my second seat in the Divorce and Family team in our Colchester office.

My first seat was in the Wills, Trusts and Probate team.

I chose to pursue a career in law as I enjoy helping people, as well as learning and working on a variety of different cases. Being a trainee at Birkett Long will enable me to experience different areas of law during each different seat.

I studied my law degree at the University of East Anglia in Norwich and then completed the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law in London. Whilst at university, I undertook extra responsibilities alongside my degree, such as being a Law School Buddy and representing the law school student voice.

In my spare time, I enjoy going to the gym and swimming, and I am a keen skier due to having had the opportunity to ski from the age of 4. I also have a passion for travelling to many different countries to explore new cultures.

Our divorce and separation team understands that the breakdown of a relationship, particularly if children are involved, can be a difficult and stressful time for all those involved. We listen to the needs of our clients and treat each client as an individual. This ensures we are able to tailor our advice and help guide you through the legal process. We can assist you to make important decisions at a time when you may feel unable to do so.
