About me

I graduated from Cornell University Law School in 1977 and served as Assistant University Counsel for Cornell University from 1977 to 1980.  Thereafter, I served as General Counsel for the University of Alaska Statewide System of Higher Education from 1980 to 1985. After moving to Florida in 1985, I went to work for a large law firm in Orlando, focusing on general corporate practice and property law (1986 - 1988). After a one year stint as General Counsel for Park Equus, Inc. (which developed the Arabian Nights Dinner Attraction in Kissimmee, Florida), I moved to Volusia County in 1989 where I served as City Attorney for the City of DeLand until I started my own practice in 1993.  Today, I combine this experience to offer clients skilled and knowledgeable legal representation in wills, trusts and estate planning, probate and guardianship, elder law, real property transactions, land use and environmental law, business and commercial law, civil litigation and mediation. Astrid de Parry is a Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Civil and Appellate Mediator and has been a member of Rotary International since 1991.  Astrid de Parry, an authorized agent for Attorneys' Title Insurance Fund, Inc

  • Gregory Dean Snell

    I have known Astrid for many years, through joint efforts of community service and as an advocate on behalf of an opposing party in litigation. Whether community service or advocacy Astrid is a consummate professional. She is always well prepared and competent on whatever subject in which she's dealing. Astrid takes her obligations seriously and can be counted upon for a quality product. I have no hesitancy in commending Astrid to anyone for legal services within her areas of competence.
