I spoke with Pamela Parker over the phone, she was the most genuine lawyer I have ever spoke with, If she didn't know the answer to my question, she told me she would research it. She didn't pretend to know it all, though very knowledgable about legal planning for special needs adults. She took 30 minutes out of her time to discuss my case. Didn't hurry me on the phone and was very sympathetic, WOW, very few people would give you the time of day if they didn't have a personal gain. Pamela Parker has a great heart and I felt she connected with me. Thank you!!!

I thought Pamela Parker would be a good choice for a special needs trust. I should have had a clue when she emphasized her payment system. Unfortunately, after she was paid (although the final documents were not completed), she NEVER EVER responded to email or phone calls. I felt sorry for her answering service because they apologized every time I would call. And it took two months for her to finally mail my final paperwork...with NO explanation, no apologies. I would not recommend her at all.
