I live in the state of Wisconsin and needed someone to help me fight a case from years ago down in Rutherford county. I like you are right now skimmed the reviews of attorney's online. I came across Parkerson Santel and reached out to their offices. I had the honor of working with Thomas Parkerson. He was very professional and honest the entire time I worked with him. We did a lot of our conversing back and forth over the phone and through email. He never once filled me with false hope or claimed we could reach for the stars when we shouldn't. I informed Mr. Parkerson that my goal was to stay out of jail and to get the charge of theft under 500 expunged from my record. I also had a capias warrant out for my arrest in the state of TN. Him knowing that because I evaded this charge for 5 years that this would be a long shot. However, he knew it was not impossible. I did have to do my part in proving that I had indeed become a better person and that I had made a positive change in my life. I had a job hanging over my head because I was not able to pass the background check with Mis. Theft on my record. Thomas was amazing and in the end I did 24 hours in jail my charge was dismissed and is expunged from my record. I just recently had the opportunity of working with this wonderful group of people. They truly saved my life. I am back home with my children, I start my job April 1st and life is looking very bright. I also had the honor of having Travis another attorney in the office work on my case as well. He was just as honest and professional as Thomas was. Their employee's are extremely friendly and efficient. I am forever grateful for what you did for me.

Mr. Parkerson is an excellent attorney. I violated my six year state, for the second time. I violated with felony possession of schedule 1, felony possession schedule 6, maintaining a dwelling, and felony possession of paraphernalia. I knew I was facing prison time. Mr. Parkerson not only got my charges against me dropped, he also saved me from going to jail. I was sentenced to four years community corrections, and my state probation was reinstated. I have three young children, which I was horrified of loosing. I couldn't thank him enough for what he worked out for me, without him I know I would be in jail right now. I would recommend him to anyone. He is caring, and understanding!!

This man has changed my life for doing ten years and he has helped me through the roughest time of my life. He's family oriented and he fights for your rights no matter how long it takes. He is a good lawyer and I would always appoint anyone to him.

I strongly endorse Mr. Parkerson. I've known him since he was a young prosecutor and watched his keen intellect and pursuit of perfection turn him into an elite trial attorney. If you have a brush with the justice system in Rutherford County, I would encourage you go contact Mr. Parkerson.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I endorse this lawyer. I have known Thomas for many years, and I respect and admire him. He is always willing to lend an ear to a fellow attorney for advice or assist in any manner. I know that he cares for his clients and works hard for them in every area he practices.
