Client Comments

"Greg became our attorney a few years ago when we were trying to recover overages from a company that built a hotel for us. From the very beginning prospects didn't look bright, although ultimately we prevailed. When he delivered the news, he was as excited as we were. Since that time, he has continued to represent us. His firm now represents us in other matters. We appreciate Greg and all his efforts."

"Greg Parsons became involved in our case in the late stages of preparation for trial. I was amazed at the speed with which he familiarized himself with the history of the case. He was able to make the most important strategic points clearer to me during preparation. His calm, respectful demeanor in the courtroom during direct examination was a great source of strength and confidence for me during a very difficult ordeal. I have the greatest respect for Greg Parsons and would highly recommend him."

"Mr. Parsons has represented State Bank & Trust Company for over ten years. During that time he has proved to be one of the best attorneys that the Bank could have retained. He is very knowledgeable and well-prepared to answer questions at any time. He is extremely easy to work with and able to make one comfortable with the legal process during a stressful time. His courtroom presence is exceptional and very effective."
