Rachael Stephenson heads the Wills, Probate & Trusts team.
Rachael Stephenson is a Senior Associate and head of Burnetts’ Wills, Probate and Trusts team. She joined Burnetts in 2017 from a niche private client firm in South Cumbria.
Having graduated from Northumbria University with a degree in Law, Rachael continued her studies at the same institution to complete the Legal Practice Course. Rachael then returned to Carlisle to start her legal career whilst also studying for her Masters in Law with the University of Leicester.
Rachael is an associate member of Solicitors for the Elderly and is a recognised Dementia Friend. Her role at Burnetts involves helping clients with issues such as estate planning, trusts, powers of attorney, deputyship and estate administration. She has a special interest in trusts and estate planning to protect vulnerable beneficiaries.
She is based at Burnetts’ Victoria Place office, but is happy to meet clients wherever best suits them.
Outside of work, Rachael is a loyal supporter of a number of charitable causes; she acts as a Trustee for several local charities and regularly fundraises for others, including Burnetts’ Charity of the Year.
She enjoys running, is an avid saxophone player and loves to travel. A little closer to home, she has recently taken up gardening.
