Ever so patient
Mr. Parker took on my case & took away all of the stress of having to deal with my lender who did many of us in our community wrong. He never lost his temperament & was alway kind, understanding & willing to listen. I can only imagine the stress he went through by taking all of mine away. I will forever be grateful to him & his wonderful staff who always kept me informed at every step. Thank you Clay...for everything & not giving up!

Best Litigation Lawyer
I hired Mr. Parker and his law firm for a judgement against me from Citibank and their lawyers from South Florida. Mr. Parker was the only Lawyer that was willing to listen to me without suggesting a bankruptcy. He was able to litigate, negotiate and settled for less than 15% of the original debt. His firm was always attentive, personal, and very responsive every step of the way. Very strong communication skills. He was honest, clear, professional, and was always on point with the case on both ends. I strongly recommend him and his firm. Thank you Mr. Parker!

Excellent service from an experienced lawyer
I hired Mr Parker last year to represent me in connection with a foreclosure matter. He has an excellent knowledge of law in this area and was able to expertly guide me, by outlining the options and explaining likely outcomes, enabling appropriate responses. Mr Parker is professional and diligent in his approach and I would certainly have no hesitation in using his services again and would recommend him without reservation.

Thankful in Orlando, FL
I would recommend Mr Parker to anyone who is looking for a lawyer who is extremely professional, knowledgeable and who honestly cares about his clients. Whenever someone is going through a stressful time in their life and needs a lawyer it is so important to have someone who will get back to you right away when you have a question or a concern and Mr Parker definitely does that even while he was out of town he got back to me instantly which was great. Mr Parker's staff is extremely helpful as well. Every time I go into their office I feel very comfortable and know that I am in good hands.

I am a business owner in the medical field, and have used Mr. Parker's services in many different facets. Including, civil litigation, foreclosure defense, and loan modifications for over 9 years. Mr. Parker and staff have always been very diligent, and work aggressively in resolving my issues. I have personally been through meditations, depositions, and even to trial with Mr. Parker, and he represented me with favorable outcomes. He will go above and beyond the norm, and make sure you are well taken care of. I deal with attorneys all the time, due to my nature of work, but I ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, choose Mr. Parker for all my personal needs. If you are looking for an attorney who is HONEST, RELIABLE, FAIR, and who will vigorously fight for you, then choose Mr. Parker.

Very professional and well priced
I hired Mr. Parker for a business contract dispute. Mr. Parker was reasonably priced and honest on how he felt the case would go. He explained to me what we needed to do to have the case dropped. Within several months, I was released from the case. During the meetings, Mr. Parker and his staff were very professional and polite. I highly recommend him and will use him for any future disputes. Thank you Mr. Parker!

AVVO RATING 8.5 (Excellent)

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2010.

Admonishment issued in FL, 2010
updated on 11/24/2015

An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

Henry's comment: “I was admonished for a "minor infraction" for a mail out sent by someone I hired which was mailed out without my prior consent or approval. The mailing failed to print the term "Legal Advertisement" in red and gave a different address on the return address envelope. I fired the advertiser and never sent out another mailer again.”
