    What is a Trial Lawyer?

    Posted on - Thursday, June 12, 2014 under FAQ What is a Trial Lawyer?

    I was involved in some high-profile lawsuits between competing companies. In those cases, I fought to right a wrong that was committed by the other corporation. That made me feel as if I had contributed to the greater good. However, during that same time, I represented corporations against individuals that were injured or terminated at the hands of the corporate machine. Fighting against the common person on behalf of big business left me with a less than settled feeling.

    I decided at that moment that I would dedicate my practice to representing people that need help in righting a wrong they have suffered. I would dedicate my practice to being the conduit that tells the legal system and anyone else that wants to listen to a story that needs to be told. Instead of being just another big firm lawyer, I would practice law and provide my voice in a way that makes a difference in a person’s life. As one of the old warhorse lawyers Jake Moore of Columbia, South Carolina told me over a beer one evening at Turner Field, people come to trial lawyers because they have the privilege and power to sue others and take them to trial before a court of law to right a wrong.

    The Parian Law Firm, LLC is dedicated to representing those that have suffered injuries through no fault of their own. Those injuries could be related to an auto accident, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, or a slip and fall. Also, injuries are caused by being accused of a crime you did not commit or being asked to pay for a debt that you do not owe. These are only some of the areas where I represent people that need help in righting a wrong. At a recent social gathering, the CEO of a publicly-traded company came up to me and told me that he applauds me and my firm for the work we are doing because as he put it, “what you do is good and makes a difference in people’s lives.” I can think of no better definition of why I call myself a trial lawyer.
