Avery Walters Solicitors based in Chapel Allerton, North Leeds are a full service practice offering a full suite of cost effective legal solutions for businesses and individuals. A relatively new company, it has rapidly expanded due to client demand and is swiftly becoming one of the most respected law firms in the city.
Managing Director Andrew Parascandolo who previously worked for legal 500 firms Hammonds Suddards and Irwin Mitchell set up the practice in August 2012 with the objective of bringing big firm legal knowledge to High Street. He initially set up the practice to specialise in Employment Law only, which is his area of expertise. But two months in, his clients were demanding other areas of law as well, such as Wills and Trusts, Conveyancing, Personal Injury and Probate so he quickly realised that he needed to offer a complete suite of legal solutions.
Therefore in December of the same year, he bought the practice of a sole practitioner who had been located in Chapel Allerton for 30 years. His wife Sara, who is a specialist Private Client Lawyer, joined him in the practice as Director in February 2013. 22 months since the acquisition, they now have two offices in Chapel Allerton and employ 12 members of staff and have another 4 members of staff joining the firm in the next few weeks.
What makes Avery Walters different to most small law firms is that all senior members of Staff are experts in their field and have worked in their chosen area of expertise for many years so have come across most, if not all scenarios. There are no general practitioners at Avery Walters. The senior team members have either previously worked for legal 500 firms or have worked in their area of expertise for many years. This is what makes Avery Walters stand out from other small law firms, so when you book an appointment you can be sure that you will “meet the specialist”!
