Vance Still Makes House Calls…
Inspired by his late grandfather, Dr. Raymond Zipp, Vance Raymond Parker goes the extra mile to provide personal service to his clients, visiting them in their homes or offices when needed.
Dr. Zipp came to the little town of Edna, Texas after graduating from medical school at the age of 22. During the Great Depression, he accepted produce and chickens from patients who had no other means of paying. In addition to his main office downtown, he made house calls and maintained an office at his own home to treat patients after hours.
His grandson Vance Raymond Parker holds JD and MBA degrees from the University of Texas at Austin. Vance has chosen to forego the overhead of the typical attorney’s office, practicing from a home office instead. This approach ensures personal service at more reasonable fees than those charged by most other law firms.
Vance has a particular passion for elder law. As an honors biology graduate at the University of Texas at Austin, and a former biomedical company executive, he understands the medical conditions that seniors face. “I practice elder law to honor my parents and grandparents, whose quiet integrity and wisdom still guide my life, and whose love never fades,” he says.
If you are disabled, shut-in, or cannot travel, Vance Parker will make a “house call” to visit you at your residence.
