About Parnall & Adams Law

Nobody chooses to be a victim.

At Parnall & Adams Law, we understand that becoming a victim of fraud, recklessness, or other misconduct is financially and emotionally costly. It is also unexpected. Thankfully, our civil justice system provides a way to acknowledge the harm and help victims become survivors.

As a prior federal prosecutor and a career civil litigator, we understand that each case is unique and each client is an individual. To provide the best representation, we must know you and you must trust us. Open communication and trust are the foundation of attorney-client relationships. A free consultation will give you the opportunity to make our decision based on trust and character. The civil justice system provides resources to victims that acknowledge the harm done and leave you feeling like a survivor – no longer a victim.
