Caring - Dedicated - and Passionate About Achieving Justice for Our Clients

 

I founded my law practice with a strong sense of doing the right thing.  At my office we do this by representing people that have been hurt by the negligence, recklessness or purposeful behavior and actions of others.  Our office has always been about using our compassion and skills to help real people and their families whose lives have been severely affected as a result of the wrongful actions of others. 

 

As part of our commitment to our clients, we always try to respond as quickly and carefully as possible to your legal needs. We try to temper the speed of our service with the need to be thorough. We don't want just to take care of your legal needs quickly, we want to take care of them correctly in order to help you achieve the results you deserve.

 

Thanks very much.

Smart and Honest - Very Pleased
Ms. Parmenter was very knowledgeable, reliable, and honest with me. Considering the facts of my situation, I needed the very best attorney on my side. Ms. Parmenter fought diligently to recover the maximum value for my case, this was even when it looked like the odds were against me. I could count on her to stick through the doubtful times in the case and persist in representing me. (I had a very bad expereince with another attorney that just dropped me as his client when things got tough and he did not want to be bothered by my case anymore.) Ms. Parmenter was wonderful to work with and my case ended very successfully for me and for more than I ever expected. Ms. Parmetner always prepared the case for the trial but we were able to resolve before. In summary, Ms. Parmenter is very reputable, hardworking and a very good human being!

Extremely Happy With The Representation I Received
This is the lawyer you want fighting for you. Ms. Parmenter is the best lawyer I have met and I was very happy with the results. I had a difficult case which I thought was not going to go well for me. Ms. Parmenter turned things around for me. No matter the size of the case, I highly recommend Ms. Parmenter to anyone seeking an attorney.

On My Side – Excellent Help!
Ligia Parmenter represented me in a lawsuit. I admire her passion for her profession, high level of ethics and professionalism. She was always on my side. I was very happy with the results. Throughout my litigation I was very impressed with Ms. Parmenter. She was very professional. What was more important, was the empathy, caring and sensitivity she showed me throughout the process. The opposing party and their counsel were very relentless in trying to make it out like I did something wrong. I think this was an intimidation technique which did not work on Ms. Parmenter. Ms. Parmenter always believed in me and in my case. She let me set the pace of how much involvement and frequency of updates I wanted in the proceedings. She made sure I knew what was important. Ms. Parmenter made herself available anytime I needed, or just wanted to talk. Everything was as convenient as possible for me. I appreciated this because I work long hours and have many other obligations. I would not hesitate to recommend Ms. Parmenter to anyone in need of an attorney. She genuinely cares about her clients and treats them with the utmost respect and sincerity. Through out my case we fully prepared for trial and were ready for that date. My case settled to my complete satisfaction and I was able to move forward.

Excellent and Caring Representation
Ligia Parmenter represented me in a serious personal injury matter. My case was difficult because the defendants wanted to fight tooth and nail and not take responsibility. Ms. Parmenter did not let that deter her from continuing to help me. I immediately felt that Ms. Parmenter would work in my best interest and she did just that. After the filing of many motions, we decided to go to trial. On the second day the defendant settled for more than double our settlement proposal. It was a long fight but Ms. Parmenter was always right there with me. I cannot be more pleased with the outcome and it allowed me to finally be able to move on with my life.
