John F. Parker (1928-2017)

Opening our doors in 1964

John F. Parker had a vision in 1964 when he opened the doors to our firm. He was our founding President and for 27 years would mold our firm, setting the foundation to what we are today.

Expertise, Knowledge and Wisdom

Upon his retirement from our firm, Judge John F. Parker presided at the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board in San Bernardino where his expertise, knowledge and overall wisdom served the judicial system in workers' compensation cases. He was known for his love of his family, his service to our country as a Lieutenant with the United States Army, Judge Advocate General Corps during the Korean War, his Presidency of Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles as well as his career achievements (inducted into the Inland Empire Hall of Fame in May of 2014). 


"A life well lived is the most exquisite work of art."

- Erwin McManus


While it is with a heavy heart we say farewell to John F. Parker, we celebrate all of his contributions during his life; to our firm, to our industry and to all of those who had the pleasure of meeting him and working beside him.
