The Parrish Law Firm was established by principal attorney James R. Parrish, who is a graduate of the University of Virginia, which is consistently ranked among the "Top Ten" law schools in the United States. He is also a former partner in one of the oldest trial law firms in Northern Virginia, whose members included one of the original judges of the Virginia Court of Appeals and three members of the American College of Trial Lawyers, which is widely recognized as the most select group of trial lawyers in the nation.
Mr. Parrish is admitted to and regularly appears in the State and Federal Courts of Virginia. He also handles appellate matters before the Virginia Supreme Court and the Federal Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. Furthermore, Mr. Parrish has the honor of having been credited with filing a successful amicus brief in the United States Supreme Court.
Corporations, businesses and law enforcement agencies frequently call upon Mr. Parrish for advice and to conduct seminars for their employees on various legal issues such as risk management.
Mr. Parrish is a resident of Gainesville, VA where he happily resides with his wife and 2 children.

Jim is a former insurance defense lawyer, as a result he has lots and lots of courtroom experience. He has left the insurance defense business and now is doing a great job helping people who have been hurt. I endorse this lawyer's work.
