As an attorney, I focus on obtaining the best results for my clients, whether through trial, negotiation or settlement. I strive to be a trustworthy advocate for my clients, in and out of court. 


About joshua M. Parrett

With a primary focus on criminal defense law, I have handled hundreds of criminal and traffic defense cases, representing clients charged with various misdemeanors and serious felony offenses such as armed robbery, rape, malicious wounding and murder. In addition, I have noted numerous appeals to the Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of Virginia. Other practice experience includes divorce, custody, visitation, warrants in debt and detinue, contract disputes and landlord/tenant cases.

After receiving his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Richmond in 2004, Mr. Parrett completed his Juris Doctor at the University of Richmond’s T.C. Williams School of Law in 2007.  After working as an associate with Clarke Dolph in Virginia Beach following admission to the bar, Mr. Parrett opened Parrett Law LLC in late 2008.  Mr. Parrett joined the Law Offices of Anthony C. Williams as an associate in 2011.  In October of 2015, Mr. Parrett decided to re-establish Parrett Law LLC, and focus his practice on criminal defense.

Mr. Parrett works hard to ensure that he stays current in the areas of law which are his focus.  He is certified with the Virginia Indigent Defense Commission as a court-appointed defense attorney for misdemeanor and felony cases.  He also attends the VIDC’s annual Advanced Criminal Defense workshops.  In addition, Mr. Parrett is a certified guardian ad litem for children, and completes continuing education courses for various family law matters.

Josh helped me through a very hard time in my life. He was compassionate, professional and ruthless when he needed to be. Highly recommend.
