This week we have been really busy. We have made a few significant changes the first being a change of name we are now officially called Parry and Welch Solicitors (PAWS). We had been talking about this for a while and this week it actually happened. We have a new logo to represent the change of name and have finally changed our colour scheme from Purple to Teal.  

In addition to this we have made the decision to move our office to a much larger office premises out of Liverpool. We will be moving to Widnes Cheshire on the 18th December 2017 our new address will be 129 Albert Road, Widnes, Cheshire, WA8 6LB, the office will be located in Widnes town centre. There is free parking available for clients. 



With all these new changes in hand we still had 3 successful dog cases in court. These being Bruno, Hugo and Toddy.


Bruno case was in Liverpool Magistrates court for a civil application under S2 Dogs Act 1871. Bruno was granted a control order at court to the delight of his family.


Hugo case came before Swindon Crown Court for appeal this week. Hugo was given a destruction order when his case was in the magistrates court for a offence under S3 Dangerous Dogs Act 1991. His owner instructed us for appeal. After a hard fight in court it was agreed that Hugo could be saved and be made subject to a contingent order. 


Toddy's case came before Swansea Crown Court this week he was given a contingent destruction order in the magistrates court for a offence under S3 Dangerous Dogs Act 1991. His case came before Swansea Crown court for appeal where it was agreed by the court that he could be made subject to a contingent order and can continue living his life with his family.
