Mr. Parke is a lawyer who can be counted on to care for his clients, and consult them with the best options available. I am very appreciate of the consideration he have to me in my position.
Jim is honest, tough, and really good at what he does. The judges and his peers respect him. Lawyers are expensive. But if you have to get one, you cannot go wrong with Jim Parke.
Upon hearing of my divorce, a friend highly recommended I hire Jim as my attorney. Following up on the recommendation was the best thing I could have done for myself, my business, and my children. My divorce was particularly complicated given the myriad business and custody issues involved. Jim always demonstrated a firm grasp of all details of my case and I always felt he cared about my case as much as I did. Given the amount of time he spent on my case and the high-stakes nature of what was involved, I believe his fees were very reasonable and worth every penny.
When we first met, Jim told me I needed to "own" my case, as he believed that would allow me to minimize fees. That meant a lot to me and saved me a great deal of money. He kept me informed of all my options, he was proactive, he was highly responsive to all my questions and concerns, and he cared not only about my case, but about me and my children. He even gave me his cell phone number so I would be able to call him when I needed immediate answers or when I was anxious and could not sleep. He is kind and personable, but don't be fooled -- he's a real warrior and shot my ex's case out of the water! It was like watching a gifted surgeon.
At a time when I felt my life and business could crumble to pieces, Jim helped me stay optimistic and empowered. I will refer Jim Parke to anyone who needs a compassionate & experienced attorney.
Jim is an outstanding attorney who is worth every dollar incurred on my case. He "walked the walk" and followed through with everything. He knew my case and truly understood me and my goals. He is very accessible, responsible, and even gives his personal cell number to all clients! His expertise, especially in regard to the business and custody issues we had, blew away the other side. I have referred him to several friends already.
