What Our Clients Say

Michelle C.

Collaborative Law

I would recommend collaborative law with Parker Herring to any of my friends who are going through a divorce. I didn’t want the divorce ending my 24-year marriage and still don’t, but the way that we settled all of our issues in a collaborative setting over the course of three months was civil and respectful. My husband and I have three wonderful boys together, and we can still talk about anything that needs to be talked about.

Jacquelyn W.

Wills & Estates

I was able to speak with Angel on the phone, fill out the forms she emailed me and then come into the office when the documents were ready to execute. I was able to get a will, durable power of attorney, health care power of attorney, living will and HIPAA release all for an affordable rate. She was kind and took the time to explain everything to me. I highly recommend Angel to guide you through your Estate Planning.

Adoption

We really needed help when our adoption agency, Independent Adoption Center, closed suddenly just as we had been matched with a birth mother. Parker Herring and David Festin helped us pick up the pieces and got the legal work done for us so that we could adopt our Hallie Grace! They really care, they really listen, and they really helped us achieve our dream. They are friendly, open, and courteous. We can’t thank them enough!

Child Custody

Many thanks to Parker Herring Law Group, PLLC for helping me fight for custody of my son. My ex-husband pulled every trick in the book but we prevailed. Thank you again.

Tom & Sarah D.

Adoption

Parker Herring hit the ground running for us. Our birth mother decided on adoption the day the baby was born. Parker worked around the clock to make sure our adoption went as smoothly as possible.

Bethanie & Justin C.

Wills & Estates

My husband and I had never created a will and didn’t know where to start. Angel made the process very easy! We filled out a few simple forms at home, used email to communicate about wording, then came into the office to sign once they were prepared. Angel provided a stress-free approach with great quality.

Aida D.

Collaborative law

Parker has truly been a friend to me and to the practice of collaborative law. We’ve had several collaborative cases together, with unique and challenging circumstances. We’ve always been able to help our clients solve their problems in a creative, peaceful, and private manner, in a way which honors their time together while helping them move towards separate lives in the future.
