Firm Overview

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 victims' rights lawyer, James Parrish. For the first several years of his career, Mr. Parrish ("Jim") 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.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I view helping people fight against the insurance companies as "the bright side". I grew up in an insurance family. My father was an insurance executive, my brother is an insurance executive, on down the line. So I'm somewhat of the black sheep of the family. The reason why I switched out of insurance was because I saw too many people being taken advantage of. Too many were being shortchanged. So I decided I was going to help these people, and help them get what they're entitled to. I make sure I get to the heart of things, and achieve fair results.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I believe it is very important. That's why I've written books like The Virginia Car Accident Guide. Such resources are going to walk people through the various steps of the claim phase and what they can expect down the line. It will give them a great deal of education about the legal process. And they'll understand why they need quality legal representation.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am willing to review documents prepared by clients. I recommend giving me a call to discuss these materials. I will advise you as to the best course of action to be taken to achieve maximum compensation for your ordeal.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I always believe that clients need to completely understand the legal process. Very few clients do, and that's why I provide them with the necessary resources and step-by-step advice in dealing with their claims. Ultimately, they'll understand that they still need quality legal representation. That's why I'm here to help.

James Parrish

I used to work for the insurance companies. I defended automobile accidents, slips and falls, dog bites and medical malpractice claims, just to name a few.

Now I represent people fighting the insurance companies. For over a decade, I was regularly engaged by insurance companies to defend personal injury claims. I saw from the inside how the insurance adjusters and executives evaluate claims and how they try and scheme, trick, and scam people out of the money they are entitled to. So what I do is put that "inside information" to work on behalf of my clients so they avoid being taken advantage of. I know their playbook and I know how to best counter what it is they are trying to do.My clients understand that when they talk to me that I'm a "straight shooter". If there are weak points in their case, I let them know upfront. I take that insurance evaluation mentality and tell them what's bad about their case. But I also show them how we can maximize those points. So my clients appreciate that, because I'm not "blowing smoke". I'm getting the best results for them.

Personal interests: I enjoy spending time with my family, exercising and watching boxing matches.
