Testimonials

Glenn N. Wagner, D.O.

“I have known Paul Parker for 14 years, most of which were as a San Diego County Medical Examiner investigator and supervisor. During that time Paul was usually the go-to person on investigation matters and was active in the California State Coroners’ Association including a requested speaker at the Coroners’ Academy in Orange County. Over the last few years, Paul has managed the medicolegal death investigations for Pinal County in Arizona and has substantially built on his knowledge of healthcare management and medicolegal death investigations. Parker Medicolegal Services, L.L.C. is his first foray into independent medicolegal death investigations and providing services to a broad spectrum of customers and clients. I have no doubt this endeavor will be successful.”
