Bill was always the professional; he kept me calm under pressure and was an amazing litigator. I learned many things, while listening and watching him put his tremendous knowledge base and skills to use. He possesses excellent communication skills, both written and oral, a great work ethic, remains positive and always made me feel that he was trustworthy. Most important, were the times that his interpersonal skills came into play; offering me compassion, guidance and a very kind act that I will never forget, during a troubling time in my life. Acts of kindness are immeasurable and he always made me believe in his confidence to obtain what was best for me. I still continue to use him in other areas of expertise. Eternally grateful, thank you Bill.”… EW-always grateful.

His dad died. His “step mother” didn’t tell him or invite him to the funeral. When he found out, he confronted his “step mother”. They argued. She told him that his dad left everything to her in his will. He hired Mr. Parker. They challenged the validity of the will and he received hundreds of thousands of dollars, almost one-half of his dad’s estate.

He left her. She asked for support. When it wasn’t forthcoming in a reasonable manner, she commenced proceedings. He defended. He swore he earned approximately $60,000 per year. Little happened. She changed lawyers. Mr. Parker obtained an Order that he obtain a proper income report and a valuation of his business. He didn’t deliver any report as ordered. They brought a Motion for interim support, seeking a finding of income of more than ten times the husband’s sworn statement on which to base child and spousal support. An income report was eventually produced. The husband then took the position his income for support purposes was $200,000. They continued and argued. The Court found the husband’s income to be $557,000, and ordered the resulting support for the parties’ children and the wife.
