    With 25 years of experience, Mr. Jerrold Parker pioneered personal injury law at a time when clients were still seen as the underdogs against big corporations. Today, he still has the gumption to fight for the rights of victims and win. He has a Martindale-Hubbell rating of “AV®” Preeminent 5.0 out of 5 (the highest rating possible) from the respected legal guide Martindale-Hubble. I am proud to share the “AV” rating with Mr. Parker. I endorse this lawyer.
