Ryan is the principal Lawyer and Managing Director of Avery Ashoorian Lawyers.

Ryan began his legal career junioring with one of the most high profile criminal defense barristers in Western Australia. During this time, he received acquittals for all types of charges for his clients; from minor summary offences all the way to the most serious charge of murder.

“Ryan answered and was just the most helpful and obliging person, completely different to the other solicitors I’d rung and really took me by surprise in a very positive way”   Michelle Skene

In 2012, Ryan accepted a position at a busy suburban law practice representing clients in all areas of law. He used the skills acquired as a criminal defense barrister and translated these skills to representing clients in all areas of law.

His major achievement during this time was with only 6 months of experience in probate matters, he was the instructing solicitor for an inheritance dispute in the Supreme Court of Western Australia which ultimately made precedent relating to illegitimate children and intestacy in Western Australia.

Since the 1920’s, our firm has grown and developed, and we have a proud history of serving Perth with legal counsel and support.
In the early 1920s, prominent Perth lawyer Mr Maurice Elijah Solomon established his legal practice in Fremantle, in the state of Western Australia as M.E. Solomon & Co. In the 1960s, Mr Maurice Elijah Solomon entered into a partnership with his nephew Rupert Clifford Solomon and established M.E. & R.E. Solomon & Co.

With its meteoritic rise, Solomon Clarke & Nelson merged with another prominent Perth law firm and became known as Solomon Cullen & Co in the late 1970s.

On 1 February 2016, Mr Ryan Ashoorian was appointed as the director of Solomon Avery & Co and renamed the practice Avery & Ashoorian Lawyers – which is how it is known to its Perth clients today.
