    • I recommend John Parnell.

    Last year I had a commercial real estate legal matter that need to be resolved. The Parnell Law Firm was recommended by a friend who owns a real estate brokerage office in the Shores. I had the pleasure of working with John Parnell Jr.. He did a fantastic job. He is a great communicator, extremely intelligent, decisive, honest and very hardworking. He handled my matter masterfully and my outcome was very good.

    When I first met with John he was kind and empathetic to our situation. He reviewed our documents and evidence and explained to us our legal footing. He didn’t just tell us what we wanted to hear: rather, he dissected the case, and explained the strengths and any shortcomings (or weaknesses) in our case. We then devised a strategy.

    I was particularly impressed with how John Jr. handled negotiating with our opponent and his attorney. Sometimes it felt as though he were playing a game of chess or poker. Our opponent and his attorney were often unpleasant and unnecessarily dramatic. They would make false claims and threats hoping to bluff us into submission. John was masterful in how he navigated through and these negotiations. He was intelligent, tough, and decisive. I always felt like I was in good hands, and at the end of the day we had had our desired outcome.

    I highly recommend John Parnell Jr. and The Parnell Law Firm.

    John Parnell, Jr. is an excellent lawyer. We hired him to help facilitate a short sale for us. I became disabled in March of 2012 and was diagnosed with a spinal cord injury. We needed to have our home modified so it could be barrier free for me. It turned out that our home could not be modified to my specifications, so we decided to look into a short sale of our home. We were referred to the Parnell firm and we were taken care of beyond our expectations!

    John helped us navigate the complex world of will, estate, and trust planning with a very 'user friendly' style that left us feeling at ease and fully informed. He helped us focus on exactly what was important in the process, where the risks might exist, and how to mitigate them. He was very patient as we worked through all of the ‘what if’ scenarios and thoughtfully explained the possible outcomes/consequences.

    Our particular situation was time sensitive - John and his staff were very accommodating in helping us meet our objectives when we needed to meet them. I look forward to continuing our relationship with him and would recommend him to anybody.

    John Parnell Jr handled a short sale for me after I relocated out of state. He handled everything in an expeditious and highly professional manner. The transaction was seamless. Additionally he charged a very reasonable flat fee and was extremely helpful in all ancillary matters. It was very refreshing to conduct business with someone who is able to deliver services that exceed expectations. I would highly recommend using John Parnell Jr. for legal services.

    I have been working with the Parnell firm for several years now both for business and personal matters. John Parnell has provided me with sound advice and have saved me thousands of dollars. You don't need a huge law firm with expensive trappings to get good advice. I highly recommend the Parnell firm.
