Practice areas
  1. Elder law
    20%
    Elder Law is an area of our law firm’s practice addressing the issues associated with aging. These areas include Medical Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, Retirement Planning (What to do with your IRA, etc.), Life Insurance, and the prospect of long-term care and nursing home expenses.

    14 years

  2. Estate planning
    20%
    Estate planning is a process of determining WHO will receive your property and assets after your death and WHEN and HOW the transfer will occur. No matter how little or much a person owns this is called their estate, therefore, everyone has an estate and needs to make a plan for how it will be distributed.

    14 years

  3. Probate
    20%
    Probate is a government process to distribute the assets of the deceased, to select a guardian for minor children, and also is the place that governs what happens to you and your money if you are disabled without any other type of plan.

    14 years

  4. Trusts
    20%
    A trust is like an empty bucket. A trust is a receptacle for assets. Each trust has a “trustmaker”, a “beneficiary”, and a “trustee”. Usually the client is all of these things while they are alive and well. Upon disability the client can have already appointed someone else to be the trustee if they are unable. Also, the client gets to say who are the beneficiaries upon their passing. The good news is that any asset inside of a trust avoids probate.

    14 years

  5. Wills and living wills
    20%
    Last Will and Testament. Most people think that having a “will” is what defines having an estate plan. The truth is you really never want your will to be used because that means you have an asset that is going through probate. A lot of people think a “will” avoids probate, but instead all a will does is inform the probate court on how you want to leave your property.

Cameron was born and raised in Missouri. He grew up in Springfield and attended Evangel University graduating with a bachelor's degree in Psychology with a concentration in Pre-Law. After graduation, Cameron attended law school in Virginia Beach, VA at Regent University School of Law with a focus in Estate Planning and Elder Law. Cameron’s legal internships included working with a large law firm; clerking for The Honorable Judge Der-Yeghiayan, a United States Federal District Court Judge in Chicago, Illinois; and spending the summer of 2010 interning at the law offices of R. Clancy Parks, Attorney at Law. 2011 marked the time Cameron joined the law firm as a licensed attorney. Having both of their professional goals aligned, practicing law together has enabled Clancy and Cameron to harness their synergistic potential which maximizes the quality of service they provide their clients.

Parks & Jones
I personally used Cameron at Parks & Jones for my family trust and have referred my family members and several of my clients. I could not be more pleased with the entire team at Parks & Jones. They genuinely listen, they explain things very well, and most importantly, they truly care. I would highly recommend Parks & Jones.

Parks & Jones Attorneys at Law
I had a trust done by a different law firm about 10 years earlier. I had ask Cameron to review my trust and the first question he ask me was, why my trust was never funded, my response was, I don't know, I did what they instructed me to do. The experience from Cameron and the staff at Parks & Jones was night and day compared to my previous experience. I feel I received a tremendous amount of value and support from Cameron and the staff at Parks & Jones. Now due to all of the follow up and extra work by the staff at Parks & Jones, my trust is fully funded. It was a great experience. I highly recommend Parks & Jones to my family, friends, and individuals I do business with.

Peace of Mind!
Thank you Cameron for making a complex topic easy to understand and navigate. I have peace of mind about my estate and what happens if I become disabled or need care. I've told everyone they need to see you to get their affairs in order sooner rather than later.

Estate planning Attorney | Apr 26

"I endorse Cameron Jones as an excellent attorney, who is extremely knowledgeable on estate planning, trust, Medicaid planning, and similar matters."
Elder law Attorney | Apr 25
Relationship: Co-worker
"I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Cameron over a year now, and I am truly grateful to learn from someone who genuinely cares about his clients and works tirelessly to help them protect what they have spent their whole lives saving. I have seen Cameron accomplish things in Medicaid planning others would not have thought to try because Cameron is not afraid to think outside the box while still working within the Medicaid system, so he can attain the best result possible for his clients. Cameron is an excellent attorney who quickly thinks through every scenario to help clients design a plan to protect their families from whatever their future may hold. I have been to many CLE events in the last year, but I have heard very little new information; I return from those events realizing I have learned the most from my colleagues, R. Clancy Parks and Cameron, at Parks & Jones. It is encouraging to know I am learning from the best."
