Real People. Real Injuries.
In 2012, Laurie Thrower Miles and Todd N. Parrish formed Miles & Parrish, P.A. in order to provide personalized representation to individuals who have been injured or discriminated against through no fault of their own. Having practiced in a large firm for years, they established Miles & Parrish, P.A. to provide the personal attention needed to best meet their clients’ individual needs. When you hire Miles & Parrish, P.A. to represent you, we will personally handle your case. There won’t be the merry-go-round of different lawyers or paralegals handling your case as you might find with a bigger firm. With this level of personal attention, we can best advise you as to your rights and options to ensure the best possible outcome in your case. More importantly, we recognize that while each of our client’s needs are different, all of our clients deserve to be treated with dignity and respect at the time they need it most.
