The Parris Firm

I was born in Tel Aviv, Israel. My family immigrated to Los Angeles (the San Fernando Valley) when I was 10 years old. I lived in Phoenix while getting my undergrad degree at Arizona State University (go Devils), and returned to Los Angeles to attend Law School at Loyola. After law school I was hired by a Los Angeles firm that primarily represented insurers in insurance coverage/bad faith matters. I was introduced to the Parris Law Firm at a mediation, and after 17 years of practice for the defense decided to make the move to representing plaintiffs. I have been at the Parris Law Firm ever since. I am married and have 3 kids (18, 15, 12). When I’m not working or driving my kids around, I enjoy travelling with the family, going to rock concerts with friends and riding rollercoasters with my son. At last count, I’ve seen over 100 concerts and ridden over 50 different rollercoasters all over the United States.
