Julie Graham | Accounts Team

AV Rillo is like family. The atmosphere is friendly and encouraging.  I still can’t believe how much time the bosses give to their staff, and without hesitation. I feel privileged to work with my colleagues, every day, and I know not everyone can say that.   

Hussain Ahmed | Solicitor

As an 8 year call solicitor I headed up my own department with a leading London conveyancing firm before joining AVRillo.  I wanted to go onto the next level so joined them because of their reputation for conveyancing expertise and support.

I knew they would help me reach my goals but was shocked by just how much by they have enabled me to exceed even my own expectations.  The firm is built on loyalty, openness, and trust.  I come to work feeling happy and safe. I could not see myself working for anyone else. 

Anik Hussain | Solicitor

My career has progressed beyond my wildest dreams.  The partners are always there for me.  They are direct, approachable and open to anyone who wants their help. Their communication training has helped develop my personal skills which has made me a more professional and competent solicitor.

Sheila Patel | Solicitor

I have been doing conveyancing for 14 years and I have found my home at AVRillo. I love going into work. The partners are loyal, hard-working and supportive. Nothing I ask is ever too much for them.   I thought I knew a lot before I joined but their Property Academy and one to one training programme has moved me onto the next level.  These guys do way beyond any other firm. I am proud to be part of the AVRillo team.

Glenda Lapwood | Trainer & Customer Services

I was pleasantly surprised when joining A V Rillo a few years ago by their dynamic approach to conveyancing.  Having worked for several large companies in the past I was unsure if a family run firm would live up to my expectations.  However it was so refreshing to find that, not only did they have a state of the art workflow system, but also the partners (Angelo and Tony) invested time in their staff to encourage innovation, motivation and self-development.  Everyone who joins this merry team are fully committed to providing the best quality service they can for their clients and I can truly say am proud to be part of such a wonderful family.

Jasmine Ebra | Receptionist

I have recently graduated and began working for the solicitors firm AVRillo. Instantly I became accustomed to the environment as the partners, Angelo and Tony, made me feel very welcome and at ease. Despite being incredibly accomplished and successful individuals they don’t make you feel inferior and they are very approachable and easy to talk to. Working for this firm is incomparable to my previous roles in administration.

My experience so far at AVRillo has been fantastic. I have been given ample support during my time here and I have learned a great deal from my colleagues and the partners.

Jessica Payne | Conveyancing Paralegal

My AVRillo Experience

Having recently graduated I was excited to be starting my career in law at such a well-established firm, and I was looking forward to being part of the A V Rillo team. Everyday has brought new challenges but being surrounded by such a strong team of people has meant that I am able to meet these challenges head on and I have learnt so much in such a short space of time. A V Rillo Solicitors is a firm that really cares, not only about clients but about staff as well, and this is apparent in the way all the staff work cohesively together. A V Rillo is a firm that strives for greatness and this is evident in the constant work that is put into developing an efficient case management system and making sure clients are always kept updated and satisfied. The Partners give training and support that is unrivalled compared to other firms and I am excited to develop my career at such up and coming and ambitious firm.

Rippley Gallagher | Conveyancing Paralegal

It’s hard to put into words just how great I am finding my experience working for A V Rillo solicitors.

It’s always apprehensive starting a new job, you never really know what to expect, and I must say I was completely and utterly shocked by how friendly and welcoming everyone was. 

With great work ethics A V Rillo not only ensure that their clients remain happy from day one, but that all of their team is happy too. I’ve learnt more in the short space of a month being at A V Rillo than I have in my time working in conveyancing, and I hope to continue to learn more with the training and support that is offered to me on a daily basis.

I admire the fact that everyone acknowledges the importance of working closely together, and that no problem is ever a big problem.

A V Rillo is constantly growing with receptiveness to new ideas and I feel absolutely privileged to be part of it.

Ruth Montia | Admin & Reception

Three months ago, Angelo and Tony Piccirillo gave me a great opportunity to work for their already well established, but growing firm. I had graduated months previous and had been looking for work whilst being a full time mother, so this came as an exciting new stage in my life.

Straight away, I was made to feel welcome and embraced the family atmosphere that surrounds the office. We all work as a team and help each other where possible.

Everybody at AV Rillo is encouraged to learn and given training to reach their full potential, which is just one reason why A V Rillo is so successful.

This firm is also at a new and exciting stage in its life and I feel privileged to be part of it.

Suzanne Osman | Conveyancing Paralegal

I first joined A.V.Rillo back in 2007. I was a bit apprehensive at first as to if I would fit in as I had a bad experience with a solicitors during my work experience at school. Angelo and Tony were however a pleasant surprise and have put my faith back in solicitors knowing that they are not all stuck up and arrogant but some are actually down to earth, approachable, normal family people.

They made me feel welcome and I fitted in straight away. It was my first proper office job and I didn’t really have any experience but I am very hardworking, enthusiastic and quick to learn and they both saw these qualities in me and gave me a chance. I am so glad they did as I am happy to say I proved them right.  

I feel that a good employee is someone who always works to the best of their ability is always willing to learn new things but also is friendly and approachable and a fast learner and someone who can organise and prioritize their work and pay attention to detail. This is very important especially in my job role as I log in the initial forms that the clients send in and there is often  many mistakes i.e. forms not properly completed, not correct I.D. documentation or discrepancies within the clients name . It is also vital that you keep everything private and confidential and not discuss any cases outside the office. It is also vital that you can prioritize your work load and keep an eye on your timescale. As I am also responsible for the post going out every day I have to ensure that I leave myself with plenty of time to get the post prepared and franked ready for 3.30pm each day when the postman comes to collect the post, I often have reports on title to put together as well which can take longer so it is important to be accurate as well as fast and efficient.

I have learnt a lot about conveyancing within my time at A.V.Rillo and about our proclaim case management system and I have to say it is excellent.

In 2008 I unfortunately had to leave A.V.Rillo due to personal circumstances however the opportunity came where I managed to come back in 2012 which was the best decision I ever made.

At  AV Rillo  each and every person is treated as an individual and I love working there and being part of not just the team but also the AV Rillo family.

It is very rare in life to find a job that you actually look forward to doing every day. The whole atmosphere and environment is something very special and I am so privileged to be part of it and I look forward to being with A.V.Rillo as it continues to progress and expand in the future.
