Client Focused Legal Representation

Welcome and thank you for visiting our site. If you are looking for a law firm that focuses on quality, client-focused legal representation, then you’ve come to the right place. At the firm of Eric J. Parkinson, Attorney & Counselor at Law, our clients are our first priority. Our firm is located on the beautiful central coast of California and we regularly assist clients in family law matters and civil cases throughout San Luis Obispo County.

We are our Clients’ Advisers not their Adversaries

Part of what makes our firm so different is our belief that attorneys are supposed to be their clients’ trusted advisors. In that role, we have an obligation to provide our clients with sound legal advice that looks at the entire picture. We believe that successfully representing our clients doesn’t mean that we must always be aggressive and adversarial. In fact, in many family law cases we often find our clients reach the best outcome by knowing their rights and using those rights to reach their goals for their lives outside of the case. But don’t take our word for it. Our clients have some pretty amazing things to say about Mr. Parkinson and our firm:

“Mr. Parkinson took time to understand my complicated situation and made me feel like I had someone on my team. He answered all my questions and concerns promptly and thoroughly, no matter how big or small the issue. I am so grateful I had someone with his expertise, professionalism and caring nature to guide me through this confusing legal system.” (Leslie J., Atascadero, CA)

“I contacted Eric with an extremely private personal matter. His counsel and assistance helped ensure that our family interests were protected. The professionalism, skills and dedicated attention he provided was outstanding. As our attorney, Eric not only represented us at exceptional level but was also personally concerned for our well-being. He continues to be a great colleague. Thank you Eric!!!” (Name withheld at client’s request)

Flat Fee Legal Representation

With nearly 20 years of experience, Mr. Parkinson has learned that a large part of what makes clients uncomfortable about working with attorneys is the uncertainty that surrounds attorney’s fees and the time it takes to resolve a case. To address both of these issues the firm of Eric J. Parkinson, Attorney & Counselor at Law provides representation to family law clients and civil litigation clients on a fixed fee basis. Working on a flat rate allows our clients to accurately anticipate the cost of their case and budget appropriately. Read more about flat fees.
