Very professional and great integrity to help his clients
I would recommend Mr. Parrotte to anyone that need help in the legal system. He treated me with dignity and respect. He explained all my options and never made me feel that I should take any plea that I didn't think I should. I never waiver in my innocence and he stuck with me. I was honest with him and he helped me to the very end. Thankful to have had such a highly professional representative.

High Integrity, Reasonable in Cost, Easy to Understand, Focused on Results
I hired Mr. Richard (Rick) Parrotte in June 2016 after spending fifteen months with another lawyer who was unable to move the case to closure. Within four months of taking my case, Rich was able to close the case with a settlement that could have been completed one year earlier. Rick was forthright, reasonable in cost, answered all my questions, provided clear feedback, direction and was able to take a floundering case and move it to closure within a very short period of time of four months. I wish my first lawyer had the integrity that Rick presented to me. He kept me informed, did not mislead me, made sure I understood what he was doing, why he was doing it, and explained any options that I need to make. Rick was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend using him by those of us needing a guide through the maze of our legal system. I would hire Rick again.
