Avery Fenton is an associate attorney in the pre-litigation department at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine.
Mr. Fenton practiced Plaintiff’s advocacy under the Federal Americans with Disabilities Act prior to joining Anidjar & Levine. He assisted in ensuring hundreds of establishments of public accommodation were up to Federal requirements on behalf of his disabled clients who faced hardships when looking to travel around the United States and had a significant impact nationwide.
Prior to Federal work, Mr. Fenton had his own small practice where he served clients in the areas of criminal defense, landlord / tenant, and commercial litigation. He was able to turn a profit on his business within just four months before eventually deciding he wanted to undertake a special project assisting persons with disabilities.
Mr. Fenton began his career working for the Office of the Public Defender, 15th Judicial Circuit in Palm Beach County. He conducted over thirty jury trials as first-chair, and was promoted first in his class to the felony division after less than one year. Mr. Fenton assisted thousands of clients who could not afford an attorney against various charges ranging from animal cruelty, DUI, battery, and a range of drug charges under Florida Statutes. He was awarded the temporary “JOA knife award” for being the most recent litigant to have all his client’s charges acquitted during the trial for lack of evidence. He was also awarded the coveted monthly “trial stick” on back to back occasions for trying the most cases in county court during such period.
Mr. Fenton graduated from the University of Miami School of Law in 2015 where he concentrated in litigation. He was awarded honors as well as the “John F. Evans Memorial Scholarship” for his outstanding performance in Miami’s Litigation Skills Program.
Prior to attending law school, Mr. Fenton had a career in hospitality management after graduating from Cornell University’s prestigious “Hotel School” in 2010 for his Bachelor’s Degree.
