Eric J. Parker is a co-founder of Parker Scheer LLP and serves as the firm's Managing Partner. With over 23 years of active experience in complex personal injury trial work, Mr. Parker represents adults and children injured or killed as a result of defectively designed and manufactured products, as well as victims of medical and dental malpractice, defective premises, motor vehicle negligence, and aviation related injury or death.

Mr. Parker has been named a "Massachusetts Super Lawyer" by the publishers of Boston Magazine every year since the designation was first created in 2004 (given to the top 5% of all Massachusetts attorneys), and is a certified member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum.

In 2001 Mr. Parker was appointed to the Editorial Advisory Board of the Boston Law Tribune, and in January 2007 was appointed to the Editorial Board of Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, the leading weekly newspaper serving the Massachusetts legal community.
