This firm is one of the best, if not THE best law firm in middle Tennessee. Unfortunately for me I’ve used other lawyers in the town of Murfreesboro over the years and I can honestly say, hands down, they’re the best Lawyers for your money. Time is money. Don’t waste either your time or money going anywhere else. Benjamin Parsley is top notch, to say the least, as is everyone of the lawyers and their staff in this office. Their assistants were very polite, and very helpful in keeping me abreast to my case. Everyone there made me feel comfortable and at ease. You cannot put a price on piece of mind. So I’m taking the time to make this review for you. I’m so very thankful that I went with the Waldron, Fann & Parsley Law Firm. My money was well spent and you know what the old saying is..You get what you pay for. The case against me looked like a mountain. By the time Mr. Parsley was done with the case it was more like a small ant hill. I’m forever grateful to Benjamin and to my friend who recommended him and this firm to me. I feel very fortunate and grateful today. All kudos to this firm.  Cheers! – G.

Wonderful firm! Outstanding results. Mr. Parsley explained the whole process first. The different roads we could take, and what to do during the meantime. He seemed at home and confident in the courtroom, (sure made me feel good cause i was nervous) he sure made a really bed situation better than I thought possible. #satisfied.  Kennedy H.

It was our good fortune to find this law office. Ben Parsley and his office staff are friendly and incredibly helpful. My boyfriend needed legal help and the prosecutor was offering him a 20 year sentence for something he didn’t do. We hired Ben and he was able to get all of the charges dropped. He is worth every penny. He came highly recommended and it was even said that if you could afford him then he was the man to go with. He has my recommendation. I cannot begin to say thank you enough for what he was able to do for us. – Jill W.

Mr. Steve Waldron and Mr. Ben Parsley handled a workers’ comp case for me. They really did a outstanding job on my case. My family and I would highly recommend this law firm. – Josh S.
