Attorney R. “Parker” McFarland, Jr. is a fourth generation attorney whose mission is to restore lives shattered by wrongful death and serious accidents and injuries. Parker’s great-grandfather, John Alexander McFarland, started practicing in 1905 and quickly became a prolific trial lawyer who won 2/3 of his cases. His son, Parker’s grandfather, Joe Alexander McFarland, was president of his law school class at Ole Miss and was a county attorney and circuit judge in Jasper, Mississippi. Joe McFarland was so well respected that he was invited to be a judge at the Supreme Court of Mississippi.

Parker McFarland graduated from South Forsyth High School in 1994, and obtained his B.A. degree in English at Covenant College. He earned his Juris Doctor degree from Mississippi College of Law in 2001, although he completed his final year of law school at the University of Georgia. Parker practiced law with his father, Robert “Bob” P. McFarland, Sr. at McFarland & McFarland, P.C. from 2001 until his father’s retirement in 2015.

Following a merger, Parker McFarland was brought to this firm as a partner in 2015. Since that time, the firm has been voted “Best of Forsyth” four consecutive years. Parker is a trial and appellate lawyer whose practice focuses on serious personal injury and wrongful death cases arising from auto accidents and others’ negligence. Parker has secured many significant recoveries against auto insurance companies for serious injuries and wrongful death both pre-litigation and post-litigation.

Auto insurance companies are increasingly refusing to offer full compensation for injuries caused by their drivers. In this climate, it is becoming more and more necessary for victims to file their negligence case in court to be made whole. Some auto insurance companies are becoming notorious for not making ANY settlement offer until the case is on a trial calendar and the victim’s attorney is ready for trial. In other instances, auto insurance companies refuse to pay for all of the medical bills and pain and suffering and trial is necessary to ensure a full recovery.

You need a personal injury attorney who will fight to the end – until you recover for ALL of your losses. Parker is admitted to practice in all state, superior, and appellate courts in Georgia as well as the United States Supreme Court.
