I hired Parker and Dufresne to handle my Chapter 7 after having done research about how to handle my financial situation. After talking with Chip Parker, I realized that Chapter 13 was much better for my case, and went with his advice (which turned out to be a winning strategy).
I like that he will sit, talk, and explain things in plain English. But I especially like that he will also questions in email. That gives you something to refer back to months later when you need to remember some important point about the law, or your case, and your sketchy notes aren't clear on whatever the issue was.
In addition, the staff was also very responsive, courteous, and professional. If you end up needing someone to handle your bankruptcy I can't imagine finding someone better.

We sleep better at night knowing "Chip" is representing us. He is very knowlegable, and came recommended to us. He has always made time to meet or speak with us, answer our questions, and keep us informed. His office staff has always been helpful and respectful. We have recommended him to our friends and business associates.

I had a problem with flood insurance. The rates were more than my mortgage and I was going to default on my loan. I hated bankruptcy but sometimes there is no choice. Parkers firm gave me precise information, told me what I need to do and today I have a fair credit rating and peace of mind. I recommend his firm to anyone in a financial crisis. He has an excellent and knowledgeable staff.

Chip is a compassionate hard working lawyer and a ruthless advocate for his clients. If my house was in foreclosure or I was over my head in debt, I know that Chip would be the lawyer to help me solve my problems.

I have known Chip for over 10 years. Chip is my go to guy for all things related to foreclosure defense. There are very few lawyers who can match Chip's passion for defending consumers. He never settles for the status quo which is the reason why he continues to push the envelope in order to protect his clients. Chip Parker isTHE ATTORNEY you want fighting for you!
