In nearly every personal injury claim, no matter the type of accident that caused the injury, the victim (that is, the injured person) will be up against an insurance company, which will use every tactic, ploy and trick (as well as a virtually endless stream of financial resources) to avoid responsibility for paying the victim compensation (money) for their injuries.
Parrish Law Firm, PLLC, is led by victimsâ€™ rights lawyer, James Parrish. For the first several years of his career, Mr. Parrish (â€œJimâ€) worked for, provided advice to and represented insurance companies in claims across the nation. However, after seeing the injustice of good people being deprived of fair and reasonable payment for life changing injuries and damage, Jim decided to use the skills and knowledge he learned from inside the insurance industry to champion the rights of victims of harm and wrongdoing.
Parrish Law Firm, PLLC was established by principal attorney James R. Parrish, who is a graduate of the University of Virginia, which is consistently ranked among the â€œTop Tenâ€ law schools in the United States. He is also a former partner in one of the oldest trial law firms in Northern Virginia, whose members included one of the original judges of the Virginia Court of Appeals and three members of the American College of Trial Lawyers, which is widely recognized as the most select group of trial lawyers in the nation.
Mr. Parrish is admitted to and regularly appears in the State and Federal Courts of Virginia. He also handles appellate matters before the Virginia Supreme Court and the Federal Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. Furthermore, Mr. Parrish has the honor of having been credited with filing a successful amicus brief in the United States Supreme Court. Corporations, businesses and law enforcement agencies frequently call upon Mr. Parrish for advice and to conduct seminars for their employees on various legal issues such as risk management. Mr. Parrish is a resident of Gainesville, VA where he happily resides with his wife and 2 children.
