* Hired by Victor to defend Sharon.
Current: Defense Attorney/Victor's attorney
Past: College student
Avery was first seen in Genoa City when Victor hired her to try to get Sharon out of prison. At the same time Avery succeeded in getting Sharon a re-trial, it came to light that she was Phyllis's estranged younger sister.
Avery had an affair with Nick, and helped Daisy get released from jail, which didn't help her relationship with her Phyllis. Later, after their father passed away, and some truths came to light, the sisters began to reconcile. Avery became her sister's attorney, and promised to help her discredit Tim Reid in the case of Phyllis's old hit-and-run. When Avery learned that Phyllis had been paying Tim off, she refused to represent her any longer. Phyllis had an affair with Ronan Malloy, so Avery once again took up with Nick. She began bonding with Summer and soon revealed to Nick some of her past. She had had an affair on her husband, Joe, with Dylan McAvoy, who was presumed dead while fighting in Afghanistan. When Avery began working for the Innocence Foundation, Dylan, who was very much alive, made his way to Genoa City to reconnect with Avery. Avery told Dylan she was in love with Nick, but they kissed, and he decided to stay in town. Avery became engaged to Nick, but there were challenges. His daughter Faith never warmed up to Avery, and Dylan, although involved with Chelsea, was still in her orbit. Avery and Nick found Phyllis at the bottom of a stairwell and Avery, along with Jack, Daniel, and Summer, decided to set her up in a facility in Georgia as she was in a coma and showed no signs of coming out. Avery continued to have issues with Faith as her wedding day approached, and when the time came, Avery chose to help Dylan, who came to her distraught over Connor not being his son, and was late to her wedding ceremony. Nick broke up with her.
Avery and Dylan rekindled their romance and dealt with him finding out that Nikki Newman was his birth mother. They also dealt with the conniving Ian Ward, when for a time it was believed he was Dylan's biological father. Later, Paul Williams was revealed to be Dylan's real dad. Avery was stunned when Phyllis showed up in Genoa City under her own steam having woken up from the coma in Georgia. Avery and Dylan began fighting to save his business, Crimson Lights, and the warehouse district from developers, including her ex-husband, Joe Clark, who came to town to head up the project for Victor Newman. Joe wants Avery back and has kissed her and pleaded for another chance. Avery accepted Dylan's proposal and after Joe made another play for her, she told Dylan she wanted to get married right away.

At Crimson Lights, Nick and Dylan want to go back to The Underground. Avery protests that they should leave it to the professionals. Paul backs her up - second collapses are often deadly. Ashley and Victoria are both there. They are concerned but feel Jack and Victor will beat the odds. Nick agrees - until he sees proof, his dad's alive. Victoria and Nick fret over Nikki, who snaps at everyone, including Paul when he refers to the recovery mission. Ashley tells Victoria that Billy doesn't know about Jack yet. Phyllis talks to Avery about her regret over pushing Jack away. Ash hears and notices Kelly enter. Kelly says she's been calling Jack. Ashley tells her he didn't make it out. Kelly sputters that Jack can't be dead. Ashley says she should go. Kelly thinks Jack is done with Phyllis, but says she'll go. Phyllis appears. Kelly tells Phyllis that last night Jack finally chose her.
Abby arrives at Crimson Lights and compares notes with Ashley. Noah gets up to speed from Nick. On the patio, Phyllis tells Kelly that Jack wants nothing to do with her. Kelly says that she turned to her last night after Phyllis lit into him. "We made mad passionate love..." Phyllis smacks her. Inside, Nick decides to go get Victor when they hear that a pocket was found in the rubble and someone may be in there. Ashley goes to tell Phyllis, who is still arguing with Kelly, that they found somebody. Phyllis says Kelly is spewing lies about having sex with Jack. Ash wants to concentrate on the rescue.
At Crimson Lights, Avery has dozed off at a table and says, "Joe." She awakens and Sharon notes she's having quite the dream. Avery is asking what she meant when Nick and Dylan come in. Nick asks what happened to Sharon's head. She tells the truth. Nick gets angry and Dylan intervenes. Sharon explains. Dylan chews Nick out for trying to twist it around. He admits he was prepared to say he was driving the car. Avery is taken aback. Sharon explains to Nick that she's on eggshells. Nick doesn't want her to live like that - he's sorry.
Nikki and Phyllis stagger into Crimson Lights. They insist they're fine and tell how Victor saved Jack's life. Avery tersely asks Dylan to discuss what happened with Sharon, but he gets a call from Paul. He tells the others there was another collapse at The Underground - Victor and Jack were still inside.
