Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Michael Parker understands insurance fraud, inside and out - Plain and simple. With more than 25 years of experience fighting insurance fraud - not only as an attorney, but also as a PI, and an SIU investigator - Michael is well versed on the inner-workings of the insurance industry and claims handling/investigation process. During my time as an attorney at Parker Straus, LLP, I have had the privilege to work with Michael on several coverage and litigation matters, as well as a major fraud project. I can attest, first hand, that insurers, businesses, and clients are in competent hands when represented by Michael. From coverage analysis to bad faith defense or insurance fraud investigation/prosecution, there is no better attorney to protect your interests and guide you through the intricacies of these complex areas of law. I highly recommend Michael to any insurer or business who desires smart, innovative, and professional representation and counsel."
