I went to a seminar in Atlanta where Troy Parish was speaking. I had heard about his work but had never seen him speak. I was blown away. I took his tips back to Ohio and have been winning ever since. Jon Sinn, Akron, www.sinnlaw.com

| Hired Attorney
A highly skilled attorney that will suit your legal needs!!!
At some point in your life you may find yourself in need of legal assistance such as I have. Whether you seek reference from friends, family, or the internet, deciding on an attorney to suit your legal needs can be overwhelming. Troy Parrish and his team of associates tremendously reduced the amount of stress, anxiety, and uncertainty my legal issues brought about. Troy's attention to detail, the manner in which he explained every step of the legal process I found myself in and its potential outcomes, gave me a strong sense of relief knowing I had chosen the right attorney for my needs. I am often asked which attorney I would recommend on a variety of issues and my response is always the same. "Call T.J. Parrish!"

Seems like a great guy also. Thanks Attorney Parrish. It was an honor meeting you."
