Nicholas Parr wasn’t always a Baltimore personal injury attorney and car accident lawyer. Before spending his days in the courtroom arguing automobile accident cases before judges and juries, Mr. Parr worked as a sixth grade social studies teacher and assistant varsity lacrosse coach at Glenelg Country School in Howard County, Maryland. Mr. Parr taught and coached for eight years and helped the lacrosse team reach four MIAA championship games and win two championships.
While teaching, Mr. Parr made the decision to change careers and enrolled at University of Baltimore School of Law. He attended law school at night while continuing to work full time as a teacher and a coach. After graduating from University of Baltimore School of Law with honors and being admitted to the Maryland Bar, Mr. Parr was hired by the Howard County personal injury law firm, Portner & Shure, P.A.
As an associate at Portner & Shure, P.A., Mr. Parr focused on personal injury cases including car accident cases and workers’ compensation claims. In addition, Mr. Parr also handled a wide variety of criminal defense, DUI/DWI cases, and serious traffic matters in Howard County, Anne Arundel County, Montgomery County, and Prince George’s County. While at Portner & Shure, P.A., Mr. Parr obtained the largest workers’ compensation award in the history of the firm.
In 2012, Mr. Parr joined The Law Offices of Steven Heisler. Mr. Parr continued to focus on personal injury litigation including car accidents, premises liability, wrongful death, and workers’ compensation cases. Mr. Parr also continued to handle criminal defense cases. While at The Law Offices of Steven Heisler, Mr. Parr won dozens of district court trials and circuit court jury trials. He was recognized in Baltimore Magazine’s Super Lawyer issue as a Rising Star for six straight years as a personal injury lawyer. Mr. Parr even brought a case before the Maryland Court of Appeals, which is the highest court in the state, and won.
After seven years working for other law firms, Mr. Parr decided to open The Law Offices of Nicholas A. Parr. Mr. Parr’s current practice will focus on personal injury, DUI/DWI, criminal defense, and serious traffic cases. Mr. Parr’s practice is dedicated to giving each client the personal attention they deserve.
