With a combined total of nearly 30 years’ experience, brothers Victor R. and Manuel “Manny” Parra are the powerhouse behind this year’s Best Law Firm. Parra Law Firm has swept the category for the sixth year in a row.
Manny graduated from New York University School of Law while his brother, a former UTEP Miner, earned his Juris Doctor from St. Mary’s University. Hailed by former clients as unique and compassionate, they made a name for themselves working on cases ranging from divorce to homicide. With nearly 1,000 cases won, the team also specializes in criminal law, traffic warrants, citations and several other aspects of the law. They offer free consultations for criminal cases and payment plans.
When asked what sets them apart from other law practices, Manny points to their strong brotherhood.
“In our practice, we have the same dynamic we had growing up together, and it translates really well,” he said. “Practicing with somebody whose beliefs you share translates to the way we treat our clients, some of whom have said when they come here, they feel like they’re visiting family.”
Each case is approached with authenticity and humility, Manny said.
“If you practice with integrity and you’re forthcoming and honest with your clients, that’s what matters most,” he said.
