Trial Lawyers | Business Lawyers

Our Firm

PARKER MILLS LLP has been representing international, national and local clients for over two decades. We provide thoughtful and effective litigation and business advice to small businesses and Fortune 500 companies, to other lawyers and law firms, family groups, individuals and many of the principal stakeholders in California.

Our law firm is distinguished from others by its aggressive but cost-conscious approach, the depth of our expertise and diversity and, above all, for the passion that our lawyers bring to their work and our clients’ causes. We also distinguish ourselves by understanding and meeting a client’s sometimes unstated (but very real) desire for a project-based approach to representation including: setting and meeting time and expense budgets, constant client-attorney communication and the ability that comes with experience to quickly adjust strategies in highly fluid situations.

Our lawyers are writers and thinkers (see Publications), they are communicators, they make law (see Court Decisions), they are leaders and contributors to the legal community and the community at large (see Attorney Profiles), and they are gateways to understanding business with and for municipal, state and federal governmental entities (see Practice Areas).

 Our varied practice is divided into three general areas:

  • Litigation, including a very substantial amount of trial and appellate work in state and federal courts.
  • Business Transactions, encompassing a broad range of corporate, real estate, employment, intellectual property, securities, tax and trust & estates transactions
  • Risk Management, consisting of insurance planning, legal ethics, legal malpractice (prosecution and defense) and law firm liability management. In addition, we provide CLE and MCLE certified programs to law firms at convenient times and locations.

Partners David Parker and William Mills are Certified Specialists of Legal Malpractice by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. Only a handful of attorneys in California carry this distinction and they are the only ones who both prosecute and defend actions against lawyers. In addition, our firm regularly provides CLE and MCLE certified programs to law firms at times and locations convenient to their varied audiences.
