After graduating High School in 1988, Mr. Parrish joined the Army, completing special training in infantry combat and later becoming a Korean Linguist . Once his military tour was complete, Mr. Parrish began working as a civilian analyst for the Intelligence division of the U.S. Southern Command in the country of Panama. Mr. Parrish decided to return stateside and complete his education as an attorney with a desire to represent the people against those that had wronged them. While attending Indiana University-Indianapolis law school, Mr. Parrish became president of the Phi Alpha Delta legal fraternity, was voted as representative at large of the student body, was lead counsel on the trial team which went to the National Regional Finals and was an editor for the Indiana Law Review. Mr. Parrish completed law school in the top of his class with honors and began working for one of the largest defense firms in the state of Florida. The experience in a defense oriented firm provided invaluable insight into the strategies and tactics used by the defense during litigation.
