Thanks are not enough when someone cares the way Mr. Parker cared. To say how much he means to our entire family really is not enough in words. My son was accused of a homicide we all knew he did not commit. It meant so much to all of us the warm encouragement and encouraging words Mr. Parker always had for us when things seemed hopeless. He worked hard and treated Rico like he would have his own son. If not for what Mr. Parker did, my son could have been in prison for the rest of his life for something he didn't do. Instead he is getting married next month. Our whole family knows that we were blessed to have gotten him for Rico's attorney. We need more lawyers like him.” –The C., H. and W. family, especially Rico H.

i was in a serious bind having had criminal charges filed against me by a spiteful neighbor that were false. I had never been accused of any crime before. I was scared to death. Mr. Parker was very patient with me and explained everything. My career was at stake. So most importantly, he went into my case with an aggressiveness that even scared me a little bit. One of the witnesses they put on was lying and Mr. Parker tore apart that testimony. He won for me !!! and my record was completely cleared.

I have tried to get off drugs for several years. While on drugs I committed a lot of stupid crimes like retail theft, burglary, drugs, DUI but I got clean for 18 months and was turning my life around. I had a relapse when my mom died and started doing thefts again and got caught a few times. Because of how many convictions I had and I had violated my probations, I was sure I was going back to jail for a long time. My boyfriend hired Mr. Parker. He got my detainers lifted and when it was all done I only had time servied which was 72 days instead of what could have been 2-3 years. Also he wasn't like other attorneys I've had where once you give them your money, it is almost impossible to get ahold of them and find out what is going on with your case. He visisted me at the jail and his manager was available every day I called to tell me what was happening. He got me in drug court and a rehab program too. I am doing good again. I was very happy with his service. Plus he's not afraid of the judge :) !
