The firm was established as a sole practice in 1976 by Shirley Parr who was a resident of Karori. At the time, it was either the first or second law firm ever to commence practice in a suburb of Wellington.


Luke Yiavasis (right) worked as a staff solicitor for Shirley Parr until the time of Shirley's death in 2002, whereupon he purchased the practice and it became known as the Parr Law Office.

Luke is the sole principal of the firm, he graduated from Victoria University in 1977 and worked as a staff solicitor while cramming in plenty of travel before settling in Karori with his family in 1984.

Luke is a full member of the Property Law Section of the New Zealand Law Society.
