Parker is a principal in Beasley Allen’s Atlanta Office and is part of the Personal Injury and Products Liability Section. He is a husband, a father and a fierce advocate for his clients, and since joining the firm in 2008, he has established himself as a force in cases of national significance.
Over the course of his career, clients large and small have trusted Parker in their legal matters. In addition to representing families in a wide variety of catastrophic injury and death cases, Parker has represented governments, large and small businesses, universities, farmers, and fishermen in significant economic damage cases. He has successfully navigated his clients in state and federal courts across the country, whether through a single event, class action and mass action multi-district litigation devices. Through it all, Parker’s guiding principle is to have a lasting, positive influence in the lives of others, and he puts that principle into practice by guiding his clients through the legal process so they can obtain a new, better normal.
Parker graduated high school with honors from Marengo Academy in 2001. He attended Auburn University and received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in 2005. He received his law degree from Faulkner University’s Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in 2008. While attending law school, Parker was on the Dean’s List, and he studied international law abroad in conjunction with Tulane University at the Universitiet van Amsterdam. In addition, he was recognized by the American College of Trial Lawyers as one of the nation’s finest student advocates and received the Lewis F. Powell Jr. American College of Trial Lawyers Medal for Excellence in Advocacy.
Parker was raised on a cattle farm with two brothers in Dayton, Alabama, and is the son of Mary and Tommy Miller. He is married to the former Ashley Brownsberger of Tampa Bay, Florida, and together they have two children, Sophia Elizabeth Miller and James Parker Miller. They also attend the Cathedral of Christ the King in Atlanta.
Before joining Beasley Allen’s Personal Injury and Products Liability Section, Parker worked in the firm’s Toxic Torts Section, where he 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 arguably one of the most significant settlements in Alabama’s history. In addition, Transocean agreed to pay the state of Alabama $20 million. At the conclusion of the case, former Alabama Governor and Beasley Allen founder Jere Beasley stated that “His efforts were nothing short of exceptional.”
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, Louisiana. Ultimately, the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee reached a landmark, uncapped settlement with BP that has paid more than $14 billion to 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 because of the spill. Ultimately, he recovered tens of millions of dollars in compensation on behalf of his private clients in the litigation.
Over the course of his career, Parker has been quoted in Law360, the Montgomery Advertiser, 11Alive in Atlanta, and the Mobile Press-Register. He has also appeared on numerous occasions as either an attorney host or guest on WSFA’s Ask the Attorney, Law Call and the Beasley Allen Report television programs. Parker has also been a frequent speaker and guest lecturer on a wide variety of topics.
Parker has been a leading figure in numerous legal organizations. He is a member of the American Association for Justice and currently serves as Chair of AAJ’s Products Liability Section. Parker is also involved in the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association and was recently selected to be one of only 17 lawyers named to the 2018-2019 GTLA LEAD program, which assembles the top rising trial lawyers in Georgia.
In Alabama, Parker served on the Executive Committee of the Alabama Association for Justice and was also one of four elected officers for the organization’s Emerging Leaders Caucus. Parker also served as President of the Alabama State Bar Young Lawyers Section; a member of the Alabama State Bar President’s Executive Committee; as an at-large State Bar Commissioner; Vice Chair of the Task Force on the Restructure of the Office of General Counsel; Local Bar Task Force Committee Member; Membership Relations Task Force Committee Member; Volunteer Lawyer Program Committee Member; Disability Inactive Status Task Force Committee Member; and a former member of the Alabama Law Institute Council. Parker was also selected to be one of only 30 lawyers in the Alabama State Bar’s 2015 Leadership Forum. The Leadership Forum is a competitive Forum that encompasses all legal disciplines – including in-house, criminal prosecution, criminal defense, civil defense and civil plaintiff’s lawyers. His Leadership Forum peers ultimately nominated him as class representative to the Alabama State Bar Leadership Forum organization.
