Emma Trevett joins Rook Irwin Sweeney

We are delighted to welcome Emma Trevett to the firm. Emma has worked in the legal profession, first as a paralegal and then as a solicitor, for 9 years. At the age of 26, while working as a public law solicitor, Emma had a stroke and became unable to work for a period of time. She now joins the firm as an Administrator, providing support to the solicitors in the team.

Emma says, “having a stroke at the age of 26 turned my life upside down. With the support of my family and friends – and a huge amount of hard work – I am delighted to be getting back to work. I am as passionate as ever about using the law to protect peoples’ rights, and I’m excited to be joining a firm which shares my values.”

Caroline Barrett, Partner, says “we’re delighted that Emma has joined the team. Emma brings a wealth of experience to her new role, as well as lived experience of disability. We look forward to working, and supporting all of our clients, together.”

During the pandemic, Emma co-edited Lockdown Lawyers, an anthology of poetry on how the COVID-19 crisis had affected legal aid lawyers and the provision of advice and advocacy. All proceeds were donated to the Law Centres Network to continue their work upholding justice and advancing equality for local people and communities.
