About Parker

Parker is a principal in Beasley Allen Law Firm’s Personal Injury and Products Liability Section. He is a husband, a father and a fierce advocate for his clients. Since joining the firm in 2008, Parker has established himself as a force in cases of national significance.

His primary focus has always been in high-stakes, complex litigation. He currently represents survivors and their families in a wide range of catastrophic injury or death cases, including product liability cases involving vehicles, the workplace and failed safety devices. These cases oftentimes involve results that alter relationships, families and lives. To that end, his guiding principle is to have a lasting, positive influence on the lives of others, and he puts that principle into practice by guiding families through the legal process in hopes to help them obtain a new, better normal.

Notable Cases

Before joining Beasley Allen’s Personal Injury and Products Liability Section, Parker worked in the firm’s Toxic Torts Section, where he maintained a diverse practice and successfully litigated cases on a wide variety of legal topics, including personal injury, toxic exposure, business-on-business product defect litigation, consumer fraud and a large charitable trust dispute.

Parker played a major role in what is considered to be one of the most significant, high-stakes cases in history – the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill litigation. He served as co-lead counsel for the state of Alabama, co-counsel to then-Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley, and was deputized a deputy attorney general of the state of Alabama by Attorney General Luther Strange. Parker was a point person for Alabama before the court, served as the architect for the state’s economic and property damage models, and was a member of Alabama’s settlement negotiation team. After years of litigation, BP agreed to pay Alabama $2.3 billion in what is considered to be one of the most significant settlements in Alabama’s history. In addition, Transocean agreed to pay the state of Alabama $20 million.

During the BP Oil Spill litigation, Parker was selected to serve as Beasley Allen’s second chair to the oil spill Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in New Orleans. Ultimately, the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee reached a landmark, uncapped settlement with BP for private claimants throughout the Gulf of Mexico. Parker oversaw the Firm’s fishermen and personal injury clients devastated by the spill. In addition, Parker represented hundreds of businesses throughout the affected area that lost business revenues as a result of the spill. To date, he has recovered tens of millions of dollars in compensation on behalf of his private clients in the litigation.

He also played a leadership role in the Hot Fuel Multi-District Litigation, where he served as Beasley Allen’s second chair to the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee. The litigation, which is consolidated in Kansas City, Kansas, was designed to ensure fairness in every American consumer motor fuel purchase. In that case, Parker represented numerous trucking companies and assumed a leadership role in coordinating national offensive discovery efforts against the largest oil companies in the world. Ultimately, these cases survived the class certification stage, and the litigation has achieved in excess of $20 million in settlements to date.

Awards and Ratings

Parker is rated an AV Preeminent® attorney by Martindale-Hubbell (4.9 out of 5.0) – the highest possible Martindale-Hubbell rating a lawyer can achieve in the categories of legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability and legal experience.

The firm selected him as the Toxic Torts Section’s Lawyer of the Year in 2012 and 2014, and the prestigious Super Lawyers publication has designated Parker a “Rising Star” since 2014 — a designation that recognizes the top 2.5 percent of lawyers younger than 40. He was also named a “Rising Star” by Law360 in 2014 and again in 2016.

He also was a member of the Local Bar Task Force and currently serves on the Membership Relations Task Force and the Disability Inactive Status Task Force.

Based on his professional achievements and leadership role with numerous organizations, the Alabama State Bar selected Parker to be one of only 30 lawyers in the State Bar’s 2015 Leadership Forum. The Leadership Forum is a highly competitive Forum designed to bring together tomorrow’s leaders of the bar from across the state. He was nominated as class representative by his peers and currently serves as co-chair of the 2017 Leadership Forum Class. Parker is also a member of the Alabama Association for Justice (ALAJ), where he recently won a heavily contested statewide election to be one of four officers in the organization’s Emerging Leaders caucus and is the secretary of the Products Liability Section. In addition, he has served on the Alabama Law Institute Council.

He has also appeared on numerous occasions as both an attorney host and guest on WSFA’s Law Call and The Beasley Allen Report television programs. Parker is a frequent speaker and lecturer and has been profiled by Law360 on two different occasions as one of the top lawyers in the nation younger than 40. Quotes about Parker include:
