James and Mike

"Mike Parker is a pleasure to deal with. He is always responsive to our needs with family and company legal matters. Mike has been particularly helpful to us with general commercial issues but especially with matters pertaining to commercial leasing and property transactions of all kinds. Because of his extensive background in banking and finance, to us, he is somewhat unique in the legal world. He is able to give a lender's perspective to our requirements, should it be necessary. Mike Parker rates a high recommendation."
