In-Depth Knowledge.
Extensive Experience.
Thorough Representation.


Whether you have been injured in a car accident, bitten by a dog, or suffered severe side effects from a dangerous medication, you are likely to face a large and cut-throat insurance company standing in between you and the compensation you deserve. At Parrish Law Firm, PLLC, our legal team has extensive insider knowledge about how these cases work because firm founder James R. Parrish actually used to represent the insurance companies in personal injury cases.

In his years of mastering the ins and outs of insurance company defense strategies, Jim learned three very important things that would change the path of his legal career:

  • Deep-pocketed insurance companies will employ sophisticated tactics and go to legal extremes to avoid paying injured people the money they deserve.
  • Many Virginia personal injury lawyers do not have a thorough understanding of how insurance companies manipulate and twist situations to protect their pockets. Thus, many injured people don’t receive adequate and effective representation.
  • A good personal injury lawyer becomes great when he believes in the cause he is fighting for, and Jim decided the people who had been injured due to someone else’s negligence are the ones who deserve justice.
